All of my experiences, which are many, with Dr. Phillips have been excellent. She is an exceptional doctor.Nov 01,2016
Very long wait time - the resident was very personable and attentive - explained they were running behind. Doctor came in after another 30 minutes of waiting. Visit with her was very short. She was usual very personable but hopefully next time wait will not be so long. My first time to see her.Nov 29,2016
my issues with Dr Phillips is that she specializes in breast augmentation and I went in with a severe break to my hand. She refused to listen to my concerns considering it was a 90 degree break. I asked for ortho, which went ignored. I am a fan of Dr. Phillips when she is performing in her field. She assisted Dr. Bauer with my breast reduction and they did an amazing job but there are no metatarsals in breasts.Dec 13,2016
