really cared about me

Reviewed on August 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Overall she was a decent doctor. I didn't feel like she took as much time with me as I would have liked. And I was a bit distraught from what I discovered on a personal exam and thought she could have bit more consoling and informative after her exam of me.

when the nurse called me to explain test results she was not at all helpful. when she said something was high, I asked what that meant and she told me "normal is between 4 and 6 and you are higher than that. I tried to explain I wanted to know what these test results meant about my health and she told me to just take the medicine Dr prescribed not happy with this

Reviewed on May 21, 2018 7:00 PM

Most of the time she is really good, but she didn't listen well at all. I had a list of concerns and just dismissed them, didn't ask questions about them. I had what I believe is a bone cycst, she just glanced at it and said use a heating pad. Didn't even ask if it was causing pain. if she is as dismissive again, I will be finding a new Doctor.

Wouldn't go back to her - didn't care for her. She didn't seem to listen to what I was saying and would talk over me. I'm not very loud, more quiet and reserved, and this was disconcerting. I also don't like doctors who push or make you feel bad. She was concerned, I think, but the way she went about it wasn't good for me. I didn't like her.
