Bridgeport, WV |
Most horrible doctor I've ever seen in my entire life. She had an attitude of disgust the moment she walked into my room. As though, I wasn't sick and sized me up before she even examined me. It was awful. She made me feel less than and belittling bedside manner. She provided zero help and sent me on my way as if I were in her way...very discouraging visit. Luckily she isn't local anymore but I would definitely not refer anyone I know to her clinic...EVER.

I love and miss Dr Kafka. Since she left the Clarksburg area, I have not been doing as well. My meds are all screwed up, & Dr Raj doesn't listen to me or seem to think I have ever had lupus. This is ridiculous! If I could talk to Dr Kafka, I would let her know I would make the drive to Pennsylvania to have her as my doctor again.
