Watertown, MA |
Please stay away at all costs... this doctor made me feel so incredibly violated and put me and my baby at risk with her unnecessary medical interventions. I would strongly urge anyone looking for an OB to avoid her at all costs. She is not personable at all, she treats the patient like it's her way or the highway, her knowledge base is actually very outdated. If you think of asking any questions, be careful of her attacking responses. They will leave you in tears. Truly a terrible doctor.
