I've been searching for a female gastroenterologist for years. Despite my ongoing issues, it was well worth the wait! The office is huge, spic and span, the girls at the desk were very nice, and the doctor herself was very pleasantto speak with. I felt comfortable with her and she cut straight to the point. I don't have a single negative thing to say and recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor in her field!
