Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Excelent Physcian with bedside Manners. Very happy with her care she provides to my Mother.
Manassas, VA |
My father was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. At the first appointment she only spent 30 mins with our family, she ended the session even though we had additional questions. Chemo treatments administered in her office were always late. On one occasion he waited two hours in a wheel chair outside the office, they had failed to notify us that they rescheduled the previous days patients for that morning. Questionable test results were communicated without thoroughly vetting.
