Expertise is apparent. Takes too long to get an appointment.The answering service is very frustrating. Put on hold for extremely long waits...greater than 30 minutes, then redirected to specialist scheduler and put on hold another 20 minutes! Who has an hour to sit on the phone waiting to make an appointment??!! This happens every time I call to make appointment. One would think that NM, being the seventh best hospital in the country would have a more efficient process to make appointments for their patients.

I was impressed by her curriculum vitae, that she is published, and that she is board certified in her area of practice. I appreciated that she has been practicing for 20 years. Even though I was an add on patient at the end of likely a busy day she was generous with her time with me. I like that she is really smart yet still practical.
