I am 23 years old, and I have seen a myriad of psychiatrists from the time that I was 5. Dr. Talavera-Briggs is the first medical professional in all of that time that I can say has established a truly effective treatment plan for me. She is highly motivated and attentive to my needs. There have been several occasions where I have needed to see or speak to her urgently and she always makes it happen. After only seeing her a few times I felt like I was on the right path, and surely enough I was.

POOR BEDSIDE MANNER. An extremely rude unprofessional "doctor." She did not want to listen to the reason why we were there but than had the nerve to add her two sense. Whenever I tried to speak she would cut me off and give me an attitude. I understand she is a "doctor" however you cannot go anywhere without getting the patient's information. Ran out of there fast, will never go back and will warn anyone and everyone.
