    I've Known & worked with Dr. B for years, she's a fantastic teacher & mentor. She rarely see's patients directly because she's training new doctors. She's up to date on the newest methods and takes a great deal of time with her students. She's a wonderful physician & if you get the chance to work with her I'm sure you'll agree.
