I chose this doctor due to the wonderful reviews online and was incredibly disappointed. Blood was found in my urine and after conducting an ultrasound where nothing was found, the doctor did not care to figure out why this was happening.I mentioned feeling ongoing abdominal pain and she stated that I should "learn to live with it" by exercising. Did not care to find out what was causing my issues. I would highly discourage anyone from seeing this doctor.
