I always thought it was a we'll rounded place, I'm not to positive if she was having a bad day or what, but total disrespect, told me they were done waiting if I couldn't pee, "mam" I cannot predict when I'll pee., Also I went in for being sick not for being pregnant which she seems to always wanna do instead of the initial visit. I don't feel comfortable with her as a doctor. I had to tell her my temperature wasn't checked she acted like I was a total moron! Not to mention because I continually told her I was Hott and cold, it was "flashes" according to her. Ha! I quote "I've never met a happy person with a cold." Does this excuse her to not care or be rude. I will never be back, I hope she doesn't treat all her patients like low life's!!

Horrible

I swear this doctor is high on something. I waited two hours for my appointment with no apologies. During our appointment she took a personal call on her cell phone, again with no apologies. In addition she did not listen to any of my health concerns. She just talked over me. I will not go back to see her.

Bad

Dr stafford was incredibly condescending and didn't seen to want to make an effort in diagnosing me. She seemed already of the opinion that nothing was wrong with me before even asking me any questions. She seemed like she was laughing at me when I told her my symptoms and why I came to visit. I am offended by her and will not go back.

I don't even know where to begin. I have honestly never interacted with a doctor that I had less faith in. During my appointments Dr. Stafford was very unprofessional and condescending. She made comments that were odd under the circumstances, and her knowledge base seemed very surface and limited. Almost every question I asked she had to google (in front of me!) to find the answer. Her overall demeanor was rushed, flustered, and irritated. I ended up consulting with another doctor after my visit with her before I filled a prescription she had issued and the other doctor was horrified by her approach to my illness. Needless to say, I will never...ever...ever be going back.
