She talks to patients in a condescending way. She prescribes meds that cause weight gain then makes you feel like you are the problem not her. She needs to work on bedside manner.

I felt that she had made her decision on my child before she even met her. She was not receptive to the special circumstances that led up to my child's difficulties. She was also visible annoyed with me when I said I had questions regarding her 15 minute monologue at the end of the appointment. When I said I had a couple of questions, she sighed and told me to make it fast. This after making us wait in the waiting room for 30 minutes despite arriving on time. Will not be returning.
