He was my second ever psychiatrist, I started seeing him when I started going to Ridgeview more and more. He made me feel bad for being there again and would threaten to send me back there if I didn't start getting better. At one point, my therapist at the time wanted me to ask him about getting tested for disassociate identity disorder and when I told him that he started yelling at me and claiming that I was just wanting more and more mental health and insinuating that I was faking in order to get a diagnosis. I'm getting tested for did now but that definitely was a major set back in even asking to get tested for certain things. When I was in Ridgeview he was also extremely late with no apologies, days I was meant to see him he didn't show up at all. He didn't listen to me about medication concerns and wasn't interested in listening to what I had to say about what was going on. He listened more to my parents than me. I wouldn't recommend him at all as he is extremely rude to patients

At this point, we haven't even met with a practitioner. It took 2 days to get a call back to make an appointment, and again had to call twice to get the paperwork sent to me. When we got to the appointment, I waited at the desk while the office worker was on the phone. Then I was told that someone had cancelled the appointment. I've been waiting for an hour. I took time off of work and scheduled this three weeks ago.

We have a daughter who has MDD and has had to be at Ridgeview several times. Dr Attalla has been so helpful in working to find what works best for her as her body is treatment resistant to the majority of medications. We call his office a lot and every time we are treated with such compassion and understanding. we really appreciate the way he explaines the disorder to her and engages her in the treatment plan.

I have been bringing my daughter here for almost 2 years. Dr Attalla was spot on in diagnosing her disorder and his pharmacology knowledge is top notch. He continued tweeking her medications along with a gene sight test that showed how she actually metabolizes certain meds so we could find the right one. Last but not least I have never been in a doctors office where the front office welcomes you so friendly and is so willing to accommodate your schedule for an appointment.

We were treated so warmly by the front office - very welcoming environment and Dr Attalla was very attentive to my child's needs, answering every question and talking to him on a level he could relate to.

Dr. Attalla likes to watch the news while meeting with patients. He also likes to take calls while meeting with patients, or just stand up and start walking out of the room to signal that he's done with you. General wait time 1.5 to 2 hours. Don't be surprised if he often "calls in sick" or informs you he won't be able to meet with you after you sat in the waiting room for over an hour. Seen him for almost two years, and everything I mentioned is consistent, and not just a one time event.

The front office is horrendous. I'm not sure how they still work their. I don't think they have a clue what's going on. My first appt I wasn't seen for over an hour due to receptionist error in scheduling. So we hardly got to spend time with the doctor. Their hours are all over the place. I never know when they are open. Their message for times is different than listed on website. They never return phone calls.

For someone who has a history of feeling anxious about seeing a doctor, Dr. Attalla's office staff and care left me feeling calm and informed. Wonderful staff who were eager to answer all my questions and work around my schedule. The Dr. is very knowledgable of all things mental health. After telling him my past experience with doctor offices he heard me out but gave me good advice. The medications have interacted better than I expected. They've been full of resources and recommendations.

I was very unhappy with my experience with Dr Attalla and his office. Even if he is the only office that takes your insurance, pay out of pocket to keep your child safe. Medications prescribed were contraindicated and could have hurt my child. Condescending when expressing concerns, fortunately my pediatrician took concerns seriously because the spells that he call spoiled child syndrome, turned out to be true seizures and she is now getting treatment elsewhere. Go elsewhere.
