While I would like to recommend her, the wait times are consistent over an hour+. Ridiculousness. If she is that busy, she should schedule her patients further apart.

She does everything she can to solve any issues you have. There generally is a wait, but it’s worth it. She spends the time she needs with every patient to make sure all issues are addressed. I wouldn’t want to go to anyone else!

Very disappointed with the level of care here. Also, the longest wait for a doctor ever!! The last appt. I waited 4 hours just to spend 10 minutes with her. Needless to say, I switched doctors and CANNOT believe the difference of having a doctor who FIXES your pain!!
