Kind and compassionate.
I was referred to Dr Borra in April 2017 when I was told I possibly had breast cancer. She had treated my sister-in-law so I was somewhat familiar with her, but as a patient myself I came to appreciate her very much. When she told me I had stage 1 she explained what treatments we could use in a way I had a complete understanding of the way to go. Five years later I am cancer free.

She saved my life
She saved my life from a DVT when others told me it wasn’t, Dr. Borra sent me for tests and I am alive today because she helped. She is a wonderful Dr. She listens to me and takes great care of my needs and tests. I’ve never felt like she was rushing me or anything else. I recommend her to everyone who needs her services.

My last visit was horrible, she does not listen to the patient, her bedside manor is deplorable, consistently demands more test that are unnecessary, she said nothing about my blood pressure that was 200/190 and seemed unconcerned about that, (and let me walk out) I felt fine when I went for the visit and felt horrible after leaving, I will never go to her again...I have hereditary hemochromatosis, polycythemia, macro cytosis, I come here for a phlebotomy, in August they attempted to do a phlebotomy and stuck me 8 times and could not perform the phlebotomy, after many attempts to find out why this wasn't working all they said was to drink water, Dr Borra never advised me on what to do, went back in January and tried again, got stuck 5 times with no results, I realize my blood is thick and I have scare tissue but the Dr should have recommended something these attempts cost me $275.00 and no results, I have to get something done because I have high levels of ferritin(iron) in my blood
