He switched me from one drug to another to another. Didn't take my repeated concerns seriously. I kept telling him that what he was doing wasn't working. I discovered I am one of those people for whom they put the "Black Box Warnings" on SSRIs. These drugs caused horrible side effects. I was physically weak. Couldn't open a bottle. Had tremors. I was passing out. Lived in a fog. These drugs made me suicidal. And I ultimate did attempt suicide after straining to fight those feelings for years.

Having had many mental health care professionals-yes, I'm a tough nut to crack-I have never been as satisfied with one as I am Dr. Caten. He's very skilled at medication management and actually convinced me that he cares about me.

Judgmental and cold. Based entire doctor/patient relationship on 1st impression at 1st appointment. Had no interest in building rapport.
