Santa Barbara, CA |
Very thorough interview: checked off a) family b) personal history c) drugs d) significant other e) medical topics and discussed how an imbalance in any of these can cause mood and anxiety symptoms. Informed me (contrary to my belief) that pot, alcohol and most illicit drugs CAUSE worsening mood and anxiety, and CAN lead to suicidal thoughts!! Shame on my PCP? Dr. Coulter NEVER starts late. My appointment is at 3:30 pm, Dr. Coulter calls me back at 3:30 pm.

Very thorough with interview, excluding any medical, or interpersonal problems that could be a cause / contributor to my depression. Able to recommend therapy (which helped) and a medication that has benefited me in the past 2 months.

Dr Coulter starts from a position of mistrust even though he leads you to believe otherwise until you leave and then he judges and manages you by your prescription history that he has access to. It was so difficult to transition from my old Dr to him, because he didn't want me to end up with one single tablet too many that he terminated our relationship after two meetings before my referral came through for me to terminate him. Never have I had such a compatibility problem with most any human.

Dr. Coulter is... an alright guy. But as a psychiatrist, he's kind of rude. He seems very backwards in his thought and even thought to blame my depression, BPD, and anxiety on alcohol and weed. I don't even drink or smoke that much - as soon as he heard that I'd done it at all, he totally shut down and his only response to any of my mental illnesses were, "Stop drinking and smoking entirely." I've seen other psychiatrists at this clinic before and I much, MUCH prefer them to Dr. Coulter.

Beyond the comfortable staff's waiting room, the psychiatrist's lack of attention to specific patient needs lacked to address such issues and based questions through a series of survey questions holding no interest in improvements to health and minding that of what client pointed out as issues directly related to today's primary concerns. There was nothing that changed I was just told things I know already and that was upsetting and a waste of my time away from work.
