Worst doctor in Saint Louis

She did not listen to me at all, and completely does her own thing without any communication. Terrible doctor and a terrible person.

She does not care!

Perhaps the least caring doctor of all time!! She does not care if you live or die. The only thing she cars about is her paycheck
