I went to see her about a very swollen, very painful abscess. She decided to put me on antibiotics and a pain killer and wanted to see me in two days. I asked what the advantage was for waiting because I was in A LOT of pain, she said it "may get better in 2 days." OK. So she rescheduled me with her 2 days later. When I came back, nothing had changed so she told me she needed to find another doctor who could help her because she doesn't lance abscesses. If this was a possible outcome, why would she reschedule me with her and not a doctor who was qualified to help me?!? To add to my frustration, she finally came back in with a competent doctor who looked at my abscess and said, "OOOh. We need to get her to a surgeon now! How long has it looked like this?" Dr. Tambunan and I both said "Since Tuesday when I came to see Dr. Tambunan." So they had to rush me into a surgeon who agreed to stay open late to help me. Why would a doctor diagnose a patient with something they know nothing about?

Her attitude was rude, though she was better than anybody else. She would listen to you. Does look on her charts, gave me wrong meds. I would never recommends this dr. to anyone. Double check your meds before you take them.

Was in horrible pain, went to see this doctor because the clinic said they would help me, and do it affordably because i had no insurance. Finally got in, told her i was in horrible pain and needed something for it. She WALKED ME OUT of the clinic, and told me to check into rehab and would not help me. 2 weeks later, i found a doctor who would help me, and i was diagnosed with syringomyelia (syrinx in my spine). Thanks a lot for nothing, i am going to be in a wheelchair eventually and can hardly function because of my pain, and all you could do was make me out to be a drug addict instead of actually gettin to know me and looking into my symptoms. I absolutely would never recommend this doctor under any circumstances. I am disgusted that i was in so much pain, and had an honest medical problem, and was humiliated and treated like a drug addict. You and the clinic are what is wrong with the medical community in this day and age.
