      Horrible experience w/ Dr. Ahlers. Was diagnosed by her w/ bi-polar & ocd; was put on prozac/antidepressant. After having a psychotic break & becoming increasingly angry & out of control, I find out was caused by prozac. After meeting w/ multiple medical professionals, was told that someone w/ bi-polar is never to be on an anti-depressant because it puts them in a manic state; their emotions become uncontrollable, which Ahlers should have known. No follow up & badmouthed me to another patient.

      Be advised, Healthgrades promotes fraudulent ratings for doctors, https://www.consumeraffairs.com/online/healthgrades.html. Please, be an educated consumer for your medical and mental health needs. :) all the best, Dr A

      I had two other practitioners before Dr. A and always felt like they were just watching the clock. I found Dr. A by searching for top schools and she came up (Georgetown, UCSD, NIH). I was expecting an academic but she is really down to earth and one of the smartest people I've ever met. You can tell this is her life. She's got a lot of experience and really understands her Pharmacology (I'm a chemist and it came up that she was a chemical engineer at Intel). Anyways, Dr. A turned my life around

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
