One of the best psychiatrist who is very caring, honest, listens and explains concerns in a very simple manner and gives you the best results. She takes the time out to respond to messages efficiently and will make you sure to discuss other options apart from medications unlike other psychiatrist. Highly recommend her to friends and family,

Competent but somewhat cold and impersonal. Did not sense empathy. This was info was based solely on one office visit. Requested a different provider after that.

I went several times, thinking I just needed time to get to know her better and for her to know me. I wasted a LOT of time doing this. She lacks empathy and a basic compassion needed in her field. Yesterday was my last attempt to see her, and when the appointment was made, I let staff know I would be 10-15 minutes late. They didn't have a problem with this. I reminded them during the confirmation call. I drove an hour (causes anxiety in me) and was 15 min late. She wanted to "reschedule". Nope.
