Dr. Wassermann mis-diagnosed me with a severe mental illness.I had to tell her what my diagnosis was and I also suggested the medications that have helped me.I even told her that I was not going to work unless she changed the medications I was on.Her medications were like placebo's and had no effect on me.Also they were not sedating me at night,so I could not fall asleep.Now I am back at work full-time and My stress is under the surface,and my anger issues have been greatly reduced.

Dr. Wassermann has a severe hearing problem that affects communication with her.You can not call her on a landline or cellphone(she can not hear you)She works in three clinics part-time with rotating secretaries.Since she works a very limited amount of hours,if you have an emergency,you are told to go to the emergency room until your next appointment.You can text her.But for legal reasons,she will only give you yes and no answers in case she has to appear in court about you.

If you need an emergency appointment forget about it.She will tell you to go to crisis.She will try to take you off your medications and give you ones that do not work.She belittled me because I have severe emotional problems and I had to beg her to put me on more powerful medication.I was not working when I first saw Dr. Wassermann.After 6 months and having my medications changed,I am finally working again.She has 7 secretaries and they all make appointments that have to be changed.Medicaid Dr.
