Really terrific doctor. Straightforward and with a professional sense of humor! Gave me lots of information about my condition -- what to do, what not to do. Provided a conservative way forward and with info on what I may need to do if that doesn't work. Highly recommend!

Love her. Kind and patient. Personable. Helped me understand so much. It means much to me to understand exactly what is happening in my body, so I know how best to take care of it; and hopefully avoid any more pain and discomfort.
