0 stars My 1st appt with her and will never go bk. She & her nurse had NO compassion. I came for a 2nd opinion, & was (literally), fussed at and I don't mean in a quiet tone, even through my tears & apologies. I told her that I had worked for many Dr's and never a 1 treated their patient's like that. What I had to say didn't matter to she or her nurse. 30 min vs 1hr appt did matter! I had taken up their time. I was so humiliated and confused! Plz treat people with compassion! Amazing front staff

Dr. Smalls-Stokes gets a rough rap coming behind Dr. Hill. She is to the point & I believe this makes for misunderstanding her. She is thorough and knowledgable. I had to cancel my April 4th appt. and was unable to give proper notice.Dr. Small-Stokes does a great job as my sleep doctor. The staff in her office does a great job as well, especially the person who's name slips mind but she truly watches over Dr. Small-Stokes, but she personally contacts you upon missing an scheduled appt.
