About Me

Care Philosophy

My personal relationship with my patients is what keeps me going. I'm proud to say that many of my patients send their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, and their friends into the office for care. I love what I do, and I think patients can sense that.

She should not be not even be called a Doctor. She does not care about people. She looks a people with disgust. I had the worst experience of my life now I’m afraid to go to her and I will think very carefully to go to another one.
