    She was extremely rude and uninterested in my care. She was late to my appointment and left within 10 minutes of entering the exam room. Each time I asked a question she snapped back at me like I was bothering her. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. She is very unprofessional and gives WVU medicine a bad name.
