Emmett, MI |
DO NOT RECOMMEND this doctor. Needs to retire. Only recommended the same approach (over the years of seeing), which did not have any benefit. NO COMPASSSION. The exam table was worn/torn which shows the doctors lack of care/concern for the patient as well.
in Utica, MI |
I stopped seeing her several years ago. She treated symptoms instead of finding the cause of the problem. I have since found the root of the cause and am being treated appropriately.
Was the only Dr that give me the correct answer to my illness I've been with her now 10yrs and every visit is just a thought as the first love her and very thank full for her help
disappointing!
