She was fabulous! She listened and asked a lot of questions. I’m frankly shocked her health grades score was so low. Her office is a little slow and the front desk girls are pretty negligent but the dr was great!

I liked the Dr. But waiting for 30 minutes was unacceptable. I will follow up since this shouldn’t be many appointments - but I do not recommend to anyone who keeps their appointments.

I literally watched my doctor walk an appointment back 6 minutes into my scheduled appointment. From a common business review website, I checked while waiting 30+ minutes for my time with the doctor, and found out this is a common experience.The waiting room was packed with tired looking people who didn't seem to know what was going on. She has to know the overbooking is a problem because she personally replies to all the negative reviews on the common business review site. She insisted on an at home sleep study, which they bill to your insurance. When I explained what was wrong with me, she made it seem like I had no idea what I was talking about. She wouldn't do anything for me until a sleep study was completed. Even though she upsold me on that, the at-home sleep study machine wasn't available for over 10 days. I guess everyone ordered the at-home sleep study machine. I told her I don't snore, and that I don't have sleep apnea. She insisted on checking anyway. It was the most cursory check I've ever had completed. She took a flash light and shine it in the direction of my throat and nose. I'm not even sure what she hoped to see standing about 4 feet away from me. I thought going to a specialist would be more beneficial, but it seems kind of pointless. If you are on the fence about finding someone and you are checking the reviews for this doctor, keep it moving. This is likely not the one for you.

The office staff got our appointment time wrong so we had to wait unnecessarily long, and they didn't have our paper work printed out. Hoping for better success next visit!

Dr. M really took her time with me and was a great listener. I have been having sleep problems for some time, and it was relieving to finally talk to a specialist in this field, rather than guessing. She had greatbedside manner and was very nice; I recommend her, based on this first appointment

The facilities and sleeping area are the BEST I've ever seen! Very comfortable, relaxing and non-intimidating. I've had sleep studies before at a hospital and an old make-shift doctor's office. This office is made for sleep studies!!! Clean,comfortable and inviting. I only rate 4 stars because I was hoping to have multiple trial masks within the first month to find out which one would be best for me, however, I was only allowed to have one mask and was stuck with it for 3 months before I could try another one. So, I ended up not using my CPAP after a month or so because I didn't like the first mask. After my followup and getting additional masks, I'm fine with it now. I also rate at 4 stars because there is really one one type of machine/apparatus they offer - and there are so many more options in the market now that could be used that I wish they carried.

She seemed uniformed about the profession she is supposed to be working in. She just wanted to perform expensive tests that clearly benefited her financially and when I declined I was referred to a larger Sleep Center.
