A waking nightmare, my work with Angela was the worst experience I have ever had with any doctor of any kind. She is very up front about having a relatively no-nonsense, tough-love approach. I found it refreshing and confidence-inspiring. Regrettably, her execution was directly in line with the stereotypical all-knowing, empathy-free psychiatrist who mandates a medication and treats fears or objections as slights on her expertise. I found her to be a toxic person.

Columbia , SC – Jan 05, 2019
Dr Harper specializes in charging insurance companies for regulating medication, she has no interest in providing therapy. She has no openings for appointments for new patients for two months, but will not schedule patients that far out because patients don't want to wait that long and either cancel or don't show up. Very unprofessional.
