Best doctor ever! I didn't have to wait at all I was called back on time and that is very impressive. She seemed very knowledgeable and didn't ridicule me for my bad habits, though strongly cautioned me against them as she should, but I didn't feel any less of a person. I will definitely be using her should I need medical attention again. It's important to find a doctor who is educated, smart, and easy to talk too and she is definitely one of those doctors.
