I really liked her, she was friendly and asked a lot of questions. The the last doctor I went too, if you asked him questions he would just answer, what do you think, that is not what we go to thedoctor for, we want them to help us. She knew what to say and how to solve the it. I will definitely recommend her to anyone who asks.

I had some difficulty using the computer (hand held ) to complete Medical history , family history,personal data. I have had problems using touch pads so I use a rubber tip pen. It took me much longer than usual to completethe paperwork, but is not an office problem. I waited 10 minutes in the room and she was professional and put me at ease.

The visit was fine - but it appears that she has no office help - so she has to cover everything. I think she could use an office assistant.
