Patient Comments (1)
in Austin, TX |
I do not recommend this neurologist. She seems to have a pre-set agenda and does not care what you have to say about your own issues. Hardly spent any time with me and does not seem to care. Continued to prescribe me various forms of the same medication that makes me ill. Billed my insurance for a service that was not rendered for my last office visit.
