No bedside manner. Very distant and not willing to listen. Treated my wife as if she was stupid. Her only interest seemed to be to convince her patients to have Botox treatments, presumably because it is high margin for her. Never responded to any messages. Avoid at all costs.

On the negative side, she is...Read More

Went this Doctor several times, she did a good job of talking and not so good at listening. After recently reading my visit reports most of what I told her was ignored and not written down. What was written down would effect my livelihood. Would not recommend!
