I will never return to Dr. Cranford! After trying to discuss a problem I was having, he just lectured me about how I wasn't going to make it in life if I couldn't cope with it; giving me no help or advice on how to actually deal with it. He yelled at me about how ridiculous my problem was and how people at my age just make up stories. He never actually listened to what I had to say. I honestly got 3 or 4 sentences out before he started yelling at me. Absolute worst Doctor I've ever seen
