Patient Reviews
Aug 22, 2020
She's a super-competent and caring physician; she really does take time to explain -- and she does it with intelligence. She's among the few who never ever talks down to her patients. We're adults, and she treats us that way: with respect and full communication. Outstanding in so many ways!
