I would never recommend her to anyone. She nearly killed me. I would go in and the way she spoke to me was cold and it never seemed like she cared at all. Anytime I brought a new symptom or complaint to her she would just add another medication and not alter any other ones. Not only that, but she never properly diagnosed me, which made the medications she gave me very dangerous. DO NOT SEE HER. It's been a while since I've seen her, but trust me I've been better off staying away.

Caring and thoughtful. Does a thorough job.much more extensive first visit than any other dr I've ever gone to in my life.
I don't recommend this office because of the rude staff member named Monica . I was 7 minutes late because there is no suite number listed ( huge building). I called twice going to voice mail. Finally she answered and gave me the suite number and said because I am 7 minutes late I can't be seen. She booked me out 2 months. Just mean and horrible.
