What People Say About Dr. Patricia Sylla, MD
Dr. Sylla is the rudest, most inhuman, and heartless practitioner I've ever encountered, not only I do not recommend anyone to step in her office, I don't think she should be practicing medicine. Furthermore, I was misdiagnosed, mistreated, and disrespected during the whole procedure.
