Fair

She saw my daughter at UCLA for a post infectious complication. She seemed very nice, but I am not sure how good of a doctor she is due to limited exposure. I wasn't dismayed nor impressed. Her bedside manner came off as a little condescending and lacked apparent empathy. I am not saying she isn't empathetic but it wasn't conveyed well. She is most likely fine doctor but I haven't decided if I would see her again. I just didn't connect with her well.
