Dr. O seems to have little experience with elder care. I came from a doctor who was great with elders. She knew how to take care of me and reassure me. I get very little to none of that care from Dr. O and I feel that's because she doesn't know how.

I have been a patient of this clinic for over 20 years and the staff is amazing BUT this doctor was insulting of my previous doctor who retired, was degrading of my ability to access my current disease condition which I have had for 29 years, tried to change the treatment plan in place by my specialist who I've had for 20 years. I don't appreciate the GOD complex she has especially since she is a inexperienced doctor with a 2 year work history. I informed the front desk I REFUSE to have her as my primary care doctor!!!
