When you don't have previous records from other dr.'s and than you tell someone, I don't have med records, and then to say that you need a physician or you are having anxiety. Not a good way to talk to a person.

Patient | March 30, 2017

This doctor seems very caring for her patients.
Patient | February 27, 2017

I would recommend her, but I also would suggest that she spend time asking information about me with her medical student. Interpretation is everything and i felt she misunderstood me from what she heard about me rather than asking me directly.
Patient | February 27, 2017

Always good care.
Patient | February 6, 2017
