New York, NY |
I agree with one of the other reviews which mentions her very "spacey" demeanor. She barely asks any questions and prescribes meds without fully explaining the benefits and risks. Doesn't even tell you how or when to stop taking the meds.
This Dr seems so spaced out all of the time. She throws pills at you and doesn't really give a crap to do follow up testing that is needed. I was misdiagnosed by her twice. Getting an appointment here is near impossible when you are sick. What is the point in having a primary care who tells you to go to the ER because she can never fit you in? Avoid.

Couldn't care less about me. Just wanted to enter data into the computer. Don't think I ever looked her in the face.

Not interest in listening.
