      I love Dr. Contractor! She takes time with you and really cares. Sometimes you have to wait for a while but I am fine with it because I have been that patient that was so miserable that she said come in for treatment. So I have been the reason she runs behind. She takes time and truly cares. The staff is amazing and returns calls and answers questions promptly. Love love love her!

      I love Dr. Contractor. Have seen her for over a year and she has helped me more than any other doctor with my chronic migraines. She knows her medications and headache prevention so well- I have found her to be an encouraging voice in my life as I navigate life with headaches.

      She doesn't care how long you wait. You can be sitting for over an hour before going back into the room and then 30 minutes or more just there while she flits around to other patients before you!! The front staff is rude and unhelpful. They won't help with scheduling and tell you oh well if you have to cancel or reschedule unexpectedly. UNPROFESSIONAL, UNTIMELY, and just RUDE!

      She's a great doctor, but she leaves you waiting for over an hour sometimes, and her staff doesn't answer calls or return messages in a timely manner. That is why I gave her three stars.
