Extremely rude and has terrible bedside manner. Blamed my symptoms on eating red meat and smoking - both of which I don’t do. Could care less about my dibilitating symptoms.

waited a long time for first visit; very disappointed as doctor gave me all of five minutes; felt very rushed and left without understanding of anything. she had read all she wanted to know on records in computer & didn't want me to recount anything additional...... which I felt was relevant and which was not on computer and forms filled out in the office.
