Great Doctor

What a fantastic doctor. She is really sharp, listens extremely well, is thoughtful and friendly, has terrific bedside manner, and is very knowledgeable (well beyond her 4-5 years of experience). What's really nice is she never seems rushed either. The most important thing is she's willing to dig deep and work hard to find a diagnosis where several other doctors have given up after just a try or two.

Mixed results

My first few experiences with her were excellent, but some appointments weren't as stellar. I don't know if she was in a bad mood sometimes or irritated with me for some reason, but it wasn't communicated. Overall, she seems very knowledgable and smart, but it would serve her well to have some more experience and professionalism.
