Patient Comments (2)

She is a condescending doctor with little compassion, which is especially counterproductive when in psychiatry. Her information is dated almost 30 years and a lot of it is simply incorrect. She has also rescheduled on me multiple times. I would strongly recommend seeking out other doctors.
