    If I could give less than one star I would. I don't understand how this "Dr." still has a license. She was very unprofessional. I waited for over five hours to have her see me. Once she was in the room with me, it seem like she didn't even care about what I had to say. There was no bedside etiquette. She had the nerve to take a personal call on her cell while in the room with me speaking in her native language. Save your money and time and find another doctor who cares.

    The staff had no concern, not even a polite smile, for any of the patients waiting 4+ hours in the waiting room regardless of scheduled appointments. The staff was rude and cold. An assistant went into the waiting room comparing two other patients medical info to explain wait, breaching HIPAA. It was dirty. Unprofesional. I left without being seen after 4 hours. I will be requesting a new Primary through my insurance. Do not waste your time, money, privacy, and well being on this incompetence.

    Why Does Experience Matter?
