Terrible. Really just terrible. She was rude, completely uncaring and not at all interested in hearing about any symptoms. Just wanted to tick the boxes and get paid. Worst doctor I’ve ever been to. Called at a different time than what the scheduled time and expected me to be available to launch into a meeting. No regard for confidentiality or respect for her patients. Do not recommend.

Incredibly poor bedside manner, did not take the time to explain or do her job, just said she couldn't help me after I said i was experiencing unwanted side effects. Clearly never reviewed my chart, hung up on me multiple times, acted like a child. Not professional at all.
