Not good with kids. Irritated with my sons apprehension to get drops in his eyes. He is 7. She barked at me when I suggested she put them in his eyes a different way. How can a pediatric doctor have such little patience? Will not be returning!

Tardy is an understatement

Wait over an hour in the office (for her to arrive) and then when you can't wait any longer, get asked if you'd like to pay an old no show fee. This office is delusional. If it wasn't for me actually liking the doctor for her skill and experience, I would never come back. And even that is questionable at this point. Let's see if they can redeem themselves at the "makeup" appointment.
