Verified Patient Reviews
Very friendly and helpful.
Very knowledgeable.She took time to explain everything to you.
As a. fellow female Gulf Wsr Veteran health care veteran, i was enthusiastic about seeing this clinician, as we are a rare breed!. And i am ususlly quite impressed with militarty physicians, but i was dissapointed in her clinical assessment skills as they were too subjectuve.. Usually, a provider "investigates" a patient's chief complaint via many different approaches, yet that did not happen, and this clinician refused to look at pictutes or videos thst veriied my claims, instead she allowed her bias of "not seeing thst before" preclude her from investigating further. However, her minor surgical procedural skills are stellar, and her suture placement is quite impressive.
She was very nice and was able to diagnose my problem immediately. Very nice and professional staff too!
