How was your experience with the doctor?I was directed to get my bloodwork done and I went the next day however it had been over two weeks and I never received a follow up call. I called and left a voicemail regarding the blood work as well as followed up to shortness of breath coughing and wheezing that had persisted since my initial visit and never received a call back. This was time sensitive since I am going out of town for the holidays which I also mentioned in my voicemail.

How was your experience with the doctor?After waiting over an hour to be seen, she took me in for what was supposed to be a physical. The treatment lasted 4 minutes, no blood pressure, no temperature, nothing. Just a “you seem healthy,” and out the door I went. If she was so concerned with getting home sooner, she shouldn’t be practicing, she should retire. Never seeing again.

I'm definitely going to keep her as my PCP.

How was your experience with the doctor?Beware - this office double books all of their appointments so you could be waiting for quite some time. They do not have any respect for your time and when I asked why they double booked each appointment slot, the response I got was, 'because some patients may cancel.' There are plenty of other amazing doctors who much more greatly respect your time so stay away unless you have lots of time to spare.

How was your experience with the doctor?They didnt want to take my preventive care and wanted to charge me. After a long call with my insurance they decided to accept it but wouldn't do any of the lab exams, which I had to go to a lab later to get them done. Also, after she got my exam results, I've never heard from them. Just overall a very unprofessional experience.

How was your experience with the doctor?Even though I checked in with my info and insurance pre-appt thru ZocDoc, it took the secretary sometime to figure out my copay, so I waited for 45 to be seen by the doctor. I didn't appreciate the fact that they only take cash for copayments. That is a great disappointment because it makes it difficult to track my payments. It was worth the wait. The doctor is was very pleasant, attentive, and thorough.
