One Star

I had to cancel an appointment with her once because my grandson had a rash and I had to get him from school. I called the office and told them what was going on. They advise me not to bring him with me,so I had to cancel. On my new appointment Afghan yelled at me telling me all I want to do is laid around and do nothing. I told her what happened, she said she doesn’t care not her problem and if I miss another appointment she won’t see anymore. I have never had a md talk to me like that before. So I left her office crying and feeling worse then ever Can you imagine, I have severe depression and anxiety. Do not go to this munster ever!!!

what a waste

this woman is rude, dismissive & judgemental. a very unprofessional HCP with poor bedside manners. does not listen to what people have to say. spends the entire appointment on her tablet instead of engaging her patients. would rather shove pills down peoples throat than actually listen or help. my guess is the pharmaceutical companies must be giving her some special treatment to prescribe a lot of this crap no one needs...too bad anti kickback laws don't actually work...
