NO HELP

This Dr. seemed overwhelmed and unprofessional. I was presented with at least 10 pages of paperwork which I did not sign for her to become my Dr.. I have a large amount of history but she did not bother to consult it, she made a very strange and seemingly flaberghasted diagnosis within the space of 10 minutes, after taking my vitals. STRANGE

Won't see her again

This Doctor tried to inform me that it is quite normal for a 10 year old to cough so hard and so often that she vomits every 10 minutes because of the force. Her advice to me when I asked how I was supposed to stop the cough so she could sleep was "Give her some benadryl, it might help"
