Patient Comments (1)
Denver, CO |
I have never met a doctor with such terrible bedside manner and sloppy ethics. Upon her visit of our newborn son in the hospital she was incredibly rude, insensitive, and the last thing she said to us before she left the room was that our baby had a touch of jaundice and we never heard back from her . Then she failed to order our sons very necessary ultrasound. She is very lucky that somebody as incredibly rude as her has such a wonderful staff
