I was referred to Dr.Lincoln, because she is the closest Dr. that offers ECT therapy services. I visited her once, and she was not very understanding, or helpful. I felt as if she didn't listen to my concerns, or my individual experiences and struggles with my diagnosis. I also felt that she made and offered options for my treatments, without actually listening and understanding my history, and concerns.
I saw Dr. Perales for a number of years, during which she started me on Benzodiazapines for anxiety. She assured me before I started that there would be no problems stopping them when the time came to do so. Then she kept upping the dose when it stopped working. Unsurprisingly, I became extremely addicted just from taking what she described. She refuses to acknowledge any culpability in the seizures and visits to the ER I endured when I was trying to taper off of it. I'm still dealing with this.
Dr Perales had a high level of anxiety about my health which made ME terribly anxious. She did not listen to me very well at times. I felt that she had issues that kept her from trusting me. She put me through a terrible time making me return one medication before she would prescribe another which led to an incident of public humiliation. Her office phone system is set up poorly so that one can't get a real person, or even know if the office is open. Her nursing staff are patronizing.
Dr Heinrichs was very helpful with my current health issues. She was kind and patiently explained things. She clearly explained her diagnosis and treatment options, which are spot on; answered questions we had with patience and clarity. The staff was great also!
Dr. Heinrichs was overly confident in her diagnosis, to the point of condescending in speaking to me and my spouse. Questions about alternative treatment were dismissed as being empirically invalid, without me even being able to explain the basic idea of the treatment. Referral to another psychologist to help me to learn to live with my issues was the only treatment option offered. After my request for that referral, it never was provided.
