Patient Comments (3)

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.

Most likely the best GYN I have gone to. Takes time to review with you and diagnosis what other GYN missed. Since than getting so much better
