She is very caring e proffecinal and alwyes listen to you needs easey to make an appuentment he knows the Medicine
Los Angeles, CA |
Have gone to see her twice and she was condescending and quite unhelpful both times. Trying to schedule an appointment was difficult. I was finally able to get an appointment but waited about an hour for her to see me for 5 minutes. When I saw her she was condescending, and after giving me a very cursory look over, she prescribed me a medication, which I was later told by an urgent care doctor was a useless medication for my sickness. I would never recommend her to anyone.
