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..
