Can I go Elsewhere?

This doctor, if I can call her that, is very rude, arrogant and does not pay attention to anything you tell her. You can tell her things only for her to not believe you. You'll pay a ton of money to see her, let alone have the insurance pay part of it, only to be sent out like an assembly line. Typical UTMB doctor I'm afraid to say.
