AVOID AT ALL COSTS. If her staff is not a big enough problem, just wait until you see her schedule. Only in the office on Tuesday's and Wednesday's. How very convenient. VERY rude staff that should not be in a customer-facing role, especially that of a Behaviorally clinic. Thoroughly disappointed with my experience and am warning others to check google reviews, because those are harder to take down for Dr. Paden....

My experience with Dr. Paden ended quite awfully. She herself seemed like an "ok" doctor through my one singular interaction with her. I appreciated that she was easy to talk with and easy to relate to. However, her staff, specifically Savannah, and other front desk associates are unbelievably rude and unwilling to assist in a situation. (Note: check google reviews of the office! they are quite accurate! 1.6 stars I believe?) Also note, she works strictly Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
