      Worst doctor I have ever had!!! She only spends a few minutes with you and doesn't ask if you are in pain or how you are feeling. Gives conflicting information with each follow up visit. She doesn't care about her patients and is very bad at describing how your injury or procedure with heal. Office staff is even worse, they are horrible. Can't get information or return phone calls. They make you pay any unpaid insurance balance before they will see you even if it is not due yet.
