in westfield, NJ |
shes one of the most compassionate vibrant doctor i've encountered. she genuinely cares about her patients and is an expert in the field. i would definitely recommend her.
in Medford, NY |
Very efficient, makes the process very easy. She is also very funny and very good at what she does.
in Staten Island, NY |
She is rude, abrupt, condescending and appeared disinterested. Too lazy to make a phone call when computers are down and lab results are needed.
