When sharing with Dr. Waickus that my knees hurt due to running on the tred mill she blatantly told me "then don't run on the tred mill".I would think that exploring options like have you tried glucosamine, stretching, or a knee brace when you run would have been more appropriate responses.This is just one example of why I give this physician a low rating. It is unfortunate Dr Mathew has left this group.

Worst physician experience to date

I saw this doctor about 5 years ago and I still to this day warn prospective patients of her. She was dishonest, unprofessional, and I seriously question her mental stability. This physician needs to seriously reevaluate the way she handles her patient care. I myself am a healthcare professional and I still am shocked by the behavior of this doctor and her treatment of her female patients.
