Very insensitive! Not compassionate at all. She is not a great listener, I just feel she does not care at all. The performance of her work is poor. She does not let you talk and want to just prescribe a medication to get you out, not listening to the whole problem. DEFINITELY WILL NOT RECOMMEND!!!

The doctor was not friendly and without knowing much of my history wanted to put me on pills for anxiety and depression within meeting her for 2 minutes. Did not listen to me.

My annual physical was a joke - she literally did NOTHING but ask a few questions and checked my vitals... attempted to have me book another appointment in order to bill be again (for nothing???).
