This provider didn't listen to me or my concerns. She decided to take me off medication that I never without taking to me. She gave me a 10 day supply of my medication but I need to see a doctor quarterly. She doesn't listen and does whatever she wants without concern the patient. The wait to get called from the lobby was over 2 1/2 hours. After finally getting called I still had to wait 30 minutes to see the doctor. Once she came into the exam room I sat in there for over an hour because she decided she wanted to read my entire medical history. She wanted me to give her the names and birth dates of all family members who had passed from cancer, heart attacks and any other illness. I felt she was being very condescending. She even talked about putting me on anti-depression medication. I'm like wow how you come up with that from one visit. no I will NEVER see her again or refer anyone to her.
