Patient Comments (2)

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...more
