    Every time I would go to see her, I would wait at least an hour. Her staff is the worst. I noticed they were taking people that checked in after me ahead of me. When I asked why, they told me those visits would be really quick so they just sent them in. My appointment was literally 3 minutes with the doctor. She failed to acknowledge there are side affects to having a tubal ligation, and then dismissed complaints. She claimed my sudden PMS and severe cramping was due to just getting older.

    I would never recommend this doctor . She doesn't know what she is doing . I had the worst experience ever . I thought I was gonna die and she was uncaring and caused me to contract an infection because she didn't follow proper procedure .

    I had my first gyno visit with her in October and she recommended I take the depo shot. However she did not explain it to me and did not ask me if I suffered anxiety or depression, both things that can get worse on depo. I bled for 6 months straigt on depo and every time I went to her, she told me I was exaggerating and sent me home. I was in the hospital twice from how bad I got and I became violent and suicidal from the hormones. Her staff mocked me during one of my visits. Bad doctor.

    A few of my appointments were cancelled by the doctor, but I found out AFTER I arrived to the office. The staff didn't bother to call to let me know. Every wait time was over 30 min, and that doesn't include the time that I arrived in advance to my scheduled time. Several times the doctor arrived AFTER my scheduled appointment time. I had to wait over an hour once. She doesn't like to answer questions and rushes through the visit. I DO NOT recommend this Dr.
