Patient Comments (5)
Rockville, MD |
This is the worst doctor and staff I have ever experienced. As a patient, you will DIE waiting for an appointment, test results, phone call, etc. The entire staff, from doctor to front desk is extremely cold and rude. I don’t understand how she still have a license to practice. They will ignore you until you have to find a different doctor to stay alive because the people in this office do not care about anyone. They don’t see a human being when a patient walks in, they see a burden.

She made my health worse by prescribing double dosage of levothryoxine for fatigue (which she did not believe) instead of ordering a T3 test (which I had requested). This cost me my job because I was stressed. She also didn't believe me that I was eating well but gaining weight. Worst yet, she appears sweet and appears to listen, but don't get lulled into this because she may actually harm you. Fighting for your job will very likely increase your cortisol (no I'm not a dr).
The worst doctor I ever had in my life! She doesn't listen, she doesn't care about the patient, she doesn't have any compassion toward you or your condition. She treats thyroid disease purely on the lab results, she dismisses your symptoms and tells you they're non-thyroid related although you have textbook symptoms! She only orders TSH and T4 for your thyroid, never T3 or the full thyroid panel. If you want to keep your sanity and health don't go to this doctor, waste of time and money!

She does not listen or hear her patients. She sees a patient as a body part , lab test and diagnostic results not as a whole person.She treats lab tests and diagnostic results not a patient.She orders tests, labs, but does not discuss the results with a patient. She never takes into consideration other medical conditions when treating patients. Never asks any questions regarding other medical conditions. Dismissive of lifestyle modifications in managing medical conditions. She is often rushing.

Highly careless Doctor. Did not pay attention to my wife's problem and did not manage her diabetes. From type II she ended up having type I. Even when she was diagnosed with type I she did not even bothered to see her. You need to leave several messages to even talk to her. Never answers the calls. Please see her if you want to destroy your health
