Dr. Erika as incredibly cheerful and knowledgeable. In fact, the entire staff at this office was kind and helpful. She also helped me line up other check ups that I needed to catch up on, so I've already got plans to go back in the near future.

Worst experience I've ever had. The check-out administrative had no idea what the Doctor had decided to do. I as a patient had to summarize to front desk about what Doctor said in office. They all said medicine prescription will besent to Pharmacy but no one did this. I called again hours later they still assured about the prescription, but nothing was actually sent to pharmacy. The person picked up phone was very rude hang up the phone without any explaination. I got no information, no medication from this visit, but only lies, ignorance, and wasting of my time.

Prejudiced knee-jerk action.... I have been taking medication for anxiety (lorazepam) and depression (Paxil) for many years. I am healthy happy well adjusted and hard working in relationships- after many years of trying to find the rightprescriptions- I feel normal again. but even before shed received my records from my previous doctor, Dr. Erika Line-Nitu and she said "I don't" do " those Meds referring to a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines though she admitted there were no conclusive long term studies on lorazepam and they are widely acknowledged to successfully treat panic attacks and anxiety. She needs to learn at least as much as I do on the pro's and cons of the drug, and especially until she gets to know her patient. I am not a drug addict, nor a drug dealer... since you asked. Also she should lose the, "I don't do this, and "I don't do that" business before she does any serious thinking

I was there for severe arthritis but unfortunately she couldn't help me at all.I am still suffering but I have found a kind doctor with empathy and agreed to ween myself off of all my narcotics that my prior physician whotreated me for my debilitating back disease retired with no notice to any of her long time patients leaving us strung out and no where to go!!!
