Review of Dr. Jaffri

-St Joseph, MO |

My 12 year old daughter was seen by Dr. Jaffri for medication after coming out of the hospital for threats of self-harm due to the bullying in the school district.. The first time she saw her she spent less than 30 minutes with her after the nurse had spent 30 minutes with her getting info. Dr. Jaffri increased her medication, which reacted on her. When I called to try to talk with her she could be reached so another doctor had to attend to my daughter. Because of my daughters problems she is h

Review of Dr. Mahmood

-Kansas City, MO |

Dr's staff fails to return urgent phone calls in a timely manner if at all. Dr fails to provide adequate information and is not knowledgeable on the pharmacology of the meds he prescribes. Dr is also likely to prescribe meds in higher doses than needed with meds that should not be combined. Would not recommend this Dr to ANYONE. Unfortunately this Dr is one of the few who accept Medicaid in the area so a lot of patients are stuck with him and are receiving substandard psychiatric care.

Review of Dr. Jaffri

-St Joseph, MO |

I saw her through my teens, and at one point, she told my guardians to put me in a home if I didn't wish to take my medication. She misdiagnosed me with bipolar, which was later shown to be false when I got a second opinion as an adult. When I had a legal order for my school social worker to take me to appointments because my family couldn't, she refused to see be because 'the school would lie and say I'm a good kid'. Terrible, rude, and nasty woman that hates everyone but herself.

Review of Dr. McGuire

- in St Joseph, MO |

Dr. McGuire is one of several psychiatrists practicing at the Family Guidance Center in St. Joseph, MO. I have been her patient for 6+ years. I have found to her to be very helpful, caring and sensitive to my particular condition. She allows me to be quite pro-active in my treatment - especially where it involves the medications that I take. She explains any and all concerns that she has regarding any changes that I suggest and is always willing to compromise, in order for me to progress.

She won't listen to the patient. Just wants to tell the patient how things are going to be.

Review of Dr. Jaffri

- in St Joseph, MO |

She never looks up, never smiles, never says anything personal or pleasant in any way. When she prescribes meds, she acts like she could care less and isn't even sure if the meds are what you need. If you ask a question, she acts like she is annoyed.

Mean and nasty woman, curt and abrupt, cannot understand 90% of what she is saying, sounds like mush in her mouth, talks much too fast and mumbles.
