Went to see her because I was referred by my PCP. I had violent nosebleeds every day. She looked in my nose and said "Don't irritate it by snorting illegal substances". I have never in my life snorted anything that wasn't nasal spray. She is a disgusting human being.

The office personnel was more than rude. I tried to talk to the Dr about the interaction I had and I was told, she does the surgeries and wasn't familiar with office procedures. I wouldn't recommend after today's interaction.
