Review of Dr. Thom

- in Sacramento, CA |

Dr. Thom, I'm a new patient and I called to schedule an urgent appointment 02/04/2019 and 02/06/2019 to come in for a referral to see a cardiologist after going to urgent care on 02/02/2019. I was told by the receptionist that I couldn't be seen by a doctor (Dr. Ford) until 02/28/2019. I explained that I was told to see my primary care doctor within five days. I deem that there must be exceptions to the rule and I am appalled by such callousness by the receptionists.

Review of Dr. Fairman

-

He diagnosed a young thyroid cancer patient with cognitive distortions and an eating disorder when she expressed concerns about a neck scar and post-op weight gain. She transferred her care to the Stanford where her medical team reassured her that her concerns were typical of patients facing thyroid removal. She ceased care with UCD, became a patient of Stanford, and sought counseling to cope with his actions actions towards her. Dr. Fairman contributed to her trauma as a cancer patient.

Review of Dr. Fairman

- in Davis, CA |

I was referred to Dr. Fairman when I was having difficulty coping with a cancer diagnosis. Dr. Fairman's low affect demeanor and lack of functional knowledge of my medical condition was highly off-putting. When I requested my medical records after my visit, I was shocked that Dr. Fairman had omitted and downplayed key information regarding my medical history that gave me credibility and validity as a patient. His dictation notes were very biased and misrepresented me. Deeply regrettable.

Review of Dr. Youngdale

- in W |

I was suffering from chronic food poisoning due to a problem with my drinking water, and this mean idiot misdiagnosed me as a grandiose schizophrenic and tried to force drugs on me that have since been banned. He simply did not believe my life story ( I graduated with honors from Chico State with a degree in Recording Arts, I own a recording studio, I had just recorded an album and played all the instruments, I own a house and had been doing renovations.) He and Heritage Oaks are horrible.

Review of Dr. Smith

-Phoenix, AZ |

Completely non-responsive. It is hard to obtain care and it is discouraging when a BH provider is nonresponsive.

Review of Dr. Smith

- in Placerville, CA |

Dr. Smith was the first of 5 psychiatrists to get my daughter's diagnosis correct and get her on the proper medication. She is warm and funny and got my daughter to like and respond to her very quickly. I highly recommend her.
