I trust Dr A. Honestly, it was really hard to find a psychiatrist who did not freak me out. Dr. A is a real human being, that is why she works for me ...

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
