I was very hopeful at the beginning of the session as the doctor did a very thorough intake and history to assess my daughter and leave people with mental . However at the conclusion of the session the doctor said that she isn't going to prescribe anything. Instead, she prefers natural methods like ashwsganda and therapy (therapy that she is already doing). I explained again that the reason we are here for an appointment with a "psychiatrist" is to get prescribed medication for my daughter's mental health which is not improving with therapy and that we've tried many natural remedies over the course of 10 years. She said she was not comfortable prescribing medicine to juveniles (17 years old and 9 months) and apparently she feels that it's irresponsible to prescribe anything. Well I think it's irresponsible to not prescribe something. I also think it's irresponsible to suggest herbal remedies and other methods that were already tried over many years. I could have went to Facebook.

Dr. Casanova has no idea what she is doing and shouldn't have ever been allowed to practice on children. She petitioned the court (AND WON?!?!) to prescribe and force me to take a medication I was allergic to just months before turning 18. The "adverse reaction" I had 3 years earlier was a super fun suicide attempt. She, like all of the troubled teen industry doctors, believes overmedicating and isolating traumatized children will make them act normal out of fear of punishment while overlooking very obvious disorders like autism or PTSD.

Dr. Casanova is an amazing doctor for my children. She is very knowledged and attentive. I've been to many doctors for my son, specifically, and she is the only person my son has ever liked. She is stern when it comes to treatment due to the severity of mental health in general. If you miss appointment she will no longer see the child. If you want your child being seen by an amazing doctor, you need to be serious about it and stick with treatment, she won't let you down.

Dr Casanova is very attentive and knowledgeable. The staff at Saafe Behaviorial in Ormond leaves a lot to be desired. They are rude and unprofessional. For some reason, despite numerous complaints, the same staff remains. Make sure your children get their heights, weights and blood pressures done at every visit. The staff won't automatically do it but it should be done.
