I would never recommend Dr. Starbranch because she gave my 7 year old meds that I had not given consent for. This med actually kept him sleeping for two days. I then tried to get my son transferred from West Oaks Hospital to UT Health-Harris County Psychiatric. Dr. Starbranch refused to release him to me, and she refused to discharge him as a transfer to HCPH. She threatened she would call CPS on me and I had to risk this. So, I give her a negative star for not contacting me the first two day

Would not return calls, even multiple emergency level pages, when my child had adverse reactions to medications she prescribed. She did apparently talk to the emergency room doctor, but still has not returned an emergency call.

She should lose her license. First do no harm, isn't that the oath? My son, who was recently released from hospitalization, she dropped from treatment with absolutely no warning. This, after prescribing a litany of psychotropic drugs. Needless to say, he immediately suffered a severe and ongoing panic attack. For a psychiatrist to treat a vulnerable patient in such a ruthless way seems not only cruel, it may well be criminal. I will be reporting her to the proper authorities.

This Dr. sat on my FMLA paperwork for 10 additional days causing the paperwork to be sent in to my employer late. Then, she did not submit the correct days requested causing my FMLA to be denied by my employer. This is the last thing a person exiting a mental health hospital needs. My job is no longer secure and I'm having to take days off from my school district (at a cost to me, as I used all of my sick leave while hospitalized) in order to correct her mistakes. Her diagnosis was late too.

I would NEVER recommend Dr Starbranch to anyone. She is extremely unprofessional and impossible to get in touch with. She was assigned to my son in the hospital. She immediately started my son back on a high dose of meds without gradual increase. She never returned my call. I tried to reach her to give her background information on my son and I was told "she is not accepting new patients"! AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL DO NOT GO TO HER. SHE IS RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL

I was a patient at Houston Behavioral and as soon as she saw me, she prescribed medication within 5 minutes of talking to me. She wouldn't give me straight answers about the meds, and just didnt really talk to me at all. Barely looked at me. I felt like I was just condensed down to a paper file and she had no intention of ever really finding the root cause of my depression. Horrible experience.

Dr. Starbranch was my teenager's doctor while she was admitted for mental health in the hospital. I had to request SEVERAL times that she call me and she prescribed new medication without ANY health history or consulting me. When I spoke to her, after my child insist she call me, she put me on speakerphone in front of my child and continued a VERY sarcastic conversation including criticism of the patient. Then, she discharged her without notice and no call to me of plan to discharge.

My Grandson was in the children's unit at Hope Bridge Hospital for 7 days. I have Medical Power of Attorney. My daughter nor Myself were able to talk by Phone or Face to Face with Dr. Starbranch. The day we did catch a glimpse of her she was whisked away by staff and we were not able to see her even though we had requested several time to meet with her since his admit..
