Dr. Curtis seems to be knowledgeable about medication options. She did return emergency calls regarding my daughter promptly. These are the things she did well. However, she seemed to come across very judgemental to me and seemed to lack empathy. This overshadowed the positives.

I’ve been seeing her for 5 years now and had a phone appointment set at a specific time and received reminders for the appointment via text. The time came around no call and then 2 hours passed and I called her cell she told me she would call me back so I text saying I leaving town and needed to reschedule... never heard back and it’s been two weeks now..

I have been seeing Dr Curtis for over a year now. She takes time to listen to your concerns and makes you feel very comfortable. I have never had an issue. The office staff is understanding and helpful. The office itself definitely has a positive vibe.

Dr. Curtis is great & so is her office staff. Those girls always go above & beyond for patients. They work in a difficult office setting; as someone with mental health issues I understand that we can be high maintenance. I have seen those girls get yelled at & cussed out by patients who feel they’re entitled. Considering all they have to deal with, I think they do an amazing job.

First I want to say I love Dr. Curtis. She has been wonderful to my son and has helped him through some difficult times. I refer my own patients to her as I respect her greatly; however I absolutely HATE her office staff. I have never dealt with a more rude, hateful bunch of people in my life! It’s impossible to get an appointment. They never notify you if your appointment is cancelled and if you call they are just awful and mocking. For this reason, I will no longer be taking my son here.

She is personal and kind, she cares about her patients. She is resourceful and knows that treatment including medication can be expensive and tries her best to make it feasible. She has a lot of experience and is very confident in herself. Only psychiatrist in Lubbock that is like this... which is why she is always busy!

Typical. Wait in the lobby, where there aren't enough chairs, for an hour past the appointment time. Charges premium prices for poor set up. By the time we got in to see her we were exhausted and just wanted to leave.

I called to make an appointment about depression. When I mentioned the name of my insurance (which I've used several times in Amarillo), the receptionist laughed a little and made sure I knew that they hadn't ever heard of it. It's nice to call a place in a depressive state and be made to feel like an idiot....thanks.

Was in the midst of an anxiety flair and panic attack, and left a message with her office, called her cell (which she gave me for emergencies) and when I called she was rude and condescending. I was told "well, I don't have your chart here so there isn't anything I can do until tomorrow." Why give out your cell number then?! Next day ended up in ER, husband called her and was told my chart was on her desk so she would get back to me. Not until 8:30 pm did she finally call back. Pcp is better.
