Dr. Ginger cured my UTI problem by giving me gentle but specific guidances on how to deal with my burning and painful urethra. I truly appreciate her calm and caring chairside manner. She was able to cure a problem which had plagued me for over six months.

I highly recommend Dr. Ginger. She is competent, friendly and patient focused. She values non surgical treatment when it is apppropriate. She is thoughtful and thorough when doing her evaluation. She spent time providing lots of education and I felt really well cared for. Not rushed at all.

Refused to give diet instructions stating she wanted a baseline. She then yelled at us condescendingly when the lab results came back abnormal stating that we should have changed the diet. Poor bedside manner. Also waited over an hour in the exam room with no apology from the doctor or staff.
