Dr. Janet Flaton has been the most influential person in my life thus far. I have struggled for much of my life but not truly understanding what I was struggling from. I started seeing her in Jan 2016 for ADHD and since then my life has changed in more positive ways than ever before. She is truly one of the strongest yet most gentle and loving human beings on this earth. I believe she has healing powers beyond just the capabilities of a doctor and she has the ability to touch and inspire anyone

My daughter moved here with an ADD diagnosis and functioned very well on medication. Dr. Flaton saw her 3 times a week for months while refusing to medicate her just yet. Some sessions consisted of her just listening to the doctor talk. She kept insisting that my daughter attend a Landmark Forum that was extremely expensive. The doctor said if my daughter's wellness was a priority to her, she'd find the money. My daughter's life began falling apart. We found another doctor, fortunately.

I did not feel like she listened to me. She put my son on medications that took the light out of his eyes and kept on telling me to wait longer and longer in spite of my complaints. When I decided to go elsewhere, I got repeated phone calls from her office insisting that I come back for an exit appointment. I have spoken to others who have gone to her and have heard similar stories.
