Arlington, VA |
he berated my child for being gay and also says she tried to kill herself just for attention. worst experience ever
in Gainesville, VA |
Perhaps the most frustrating experience I've ever had with a medical professional. Ironically, even though he is a psychiatrist, he is completely incapable of understanding the pain and frustration a parent feels when his or her child is suffering. He is inflexible, arrogant and the most callous medical practitioner I have ever seen. If there were more space here, I would provide the details. Avoid this practitioner at all costs.
