I thought she was very professional and competent and understood my medical concerns. She was willing to change my medication regimen to address my medical concerns and to try something different than what I had been doing for my peripheral neuropathy.

Everyone was so brusque in their manner and then all she did was question me, barely paying attention it seemed, and then asked me to come back 2 entire hours later to do a test!

I was extremely disappointed that the doc wldnt go over my MRI compact disc with me during my initial session despite several repeated requests/pleas - reason is because their computers weren't compatible?? Also, I spent a great deal of timefilling out paperwork online prior to the meeting through this service only to have to fill out all the same info again in person...

She took an interest is my chronic headaches, but she's quick to write prescriptions. If that's not what you're looking for, look elsewhere.

She listens to you and takes detailed notes about any symptoms you have instead of many doctors who already have their mind made up about your condition before taking everything into account.
