Five Stars

Very kind demeanor, although she is a fast talker, she does take the time to explain my diagnosis in detail and has always taken the time for "whole patient" type care.

She is a phenomenal doctor and spends lots of time with patients. She is extremely thorough. Only downside is that you wait a good 45 minutes every time before an appointment. It also takes a long time to hear back from her office, even just for simple blood tests.
