Wait time was almost 2 hours. She prescribed several brand name meds(that I can't afford and for which I wasn't there) and said very little about my thyroid nodules. Gave me a bunch of samples and a referral for a biopsy and ordered a sleuth of blood tests for diabetes etc. I have a PCP for my diabetes and other things and just wanted to know if a biopsy was needed. Also saw 3 pharma reps come and go and felt costly medications being pushed on me. I will never go back!

The wait was over 4 hrs.and I was told that is normal. I only saw dr for 20 min out of that time. She would ask me questions but then answer them for me. And would talk over me if I was speaking

Does not listen to what the patient is saying. She doesn't believe the patient. Left her for primary care doctor who treated thyroid issue and I've lost 102 pounds. My primary listened and believed what I said.
