She has been my provider for 15+ years & I have never felt rushed during any of my appointments because she truly listens to my concerns & addresses them with care & compassion. I never feel as if my concerns are belittled which allows me the complete confidence to confide in her without the fear of judgment or feeling like a total idiot. She has earned my respect as a knowledgeable & trusting provider. I do recommend her constantly but because her patients love her & think she is as amazing as I do, she isn\'t taking new patients.
