Dr. Frances Claytor is just awful. She is awful as a doctor, first, and as a human being, second. I brought my daughter to see her multiple times for anxiety/depression issues. Big mistake. Dr. Claytor was rude, arrogant, snobbish, and displayed a "holier-than-thou" attitude each time. Not helpful at all--she only wanted to push pills. In my opinion, Frances Claytor should be disciplined by the Maryland State Board of Psychiatry. Very unprofessional behavior and attitude. She stinks. Avoid!!!
