She is not a compassionate doctor. I was in tears in her office because I have been dealing with chronic pelvic pain for years & I also have Fibromyalgia. It was my first visit with her so I wanted to tell her my history with chronic pelvic pain & Fibromyalgia as I think they might be related. She was not interested in hearing any of this. I was in tears & she NEVER once said, "I'm so sorry you are having so much pain"!! She curtly said, "that's not causing that, etc". Silly me for suggesting anything to a doctor!!She did a pap smear that day in which she knew I was menstruating. A nurse called me a couple days later & said, "your pap results are good, but we want you to come back and have an endometrial biopsy as we found endometrial tissue". I reminded the nurse that I was menstruating (typical to shed endometrial tissue during period), but said, "we know, but we would like to go ahead & do it since you are 41 years old". This nurse was also very rude & seemed annoyed that I would even have any questions about this biopsy. This was not the same nurse who did the work up in the office as she was very compassionate. I said Okay, but would like to see a different gynecologist for this procedure. The nurse again sounded inconvenienced & set an appointment for me with Dr. Shira Varon. I went all the way down there, had my legs in the stirrups ready to go & Dr. Varon comes in & says, "I'm sorry, but it's unnecessary for you to have this procedure because you were menstruating during your pap smear"! I don't blame Dr. Varon, but this was a huge waste of my time as well as emotional energy. I also lost a day of wages because in my line of work I don't get paid if I'm not there. Also, during this time my husband was away training in chemical warfare as he is in the navy. I now live in another city as my husband was transferred. I pray that I have better luck this time
