What People Say About Dr. Janita Ardis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I’ve seen Dr Ardis for over 20 years. She’s an outstanding psychiatrist and is very knowledgeable. I’m not sure why all of the complaints. Do what you’re supposed to do and be responsible about making your appointments and you’ll have a great experience. Yes, sometimes there’s a wait, but that’s with any doctor. Sometimes crises arise that Dr Ardis has no control over. Dr Ardis is an outstanding psychiatrist and a great colleague and friend. I trust her with my life and wouldn’t see anyone else.

I have seen Dr. Ardis for almost 20 years. Dawnett is consistently rude. She speaks to me each time in a condescending manner. She preaches to me each time about how to refill medication and still doesn’t fill correctly. 1 person is ruining a practice with very poor customer service.

The first time I tried to make an appointment with Dr. Ardis her receptionist told me that Dr. Ardis runs consistently late-she said sometimes an hour late. I was kept waiting almost an hour past my appt time one day and when I spoke up and asked when I would be seeing Dr. Ardis it was as if they forgot I was even there..even though I checked in, signed in and paid. Then, I called on a Friday afternoon, Rose told me “call your pharmacy!” hung up on me-and forwarded the calls for the wknd. RUDE.

I was late by 5 minutes and was left waiting for over an hour until close. My first appointment had me waiting an hour as well.

I was referred by my pcp and the first visit, I sat and watched people come in, watched the waiting room empty twice and finally asked if they were close to seeing me! Second appointment was on the morning after 4 inches of snow had me blocked in my garage. I called to cancel. On rescheduled date they wanted me to pay $50 for missed appointment! I am far south OKC which got more snow than her office. I was also told they cancelled all the appts the day before but not Friday (a.m.). Have pics.

I've been seeing Dr. Ardis for about 5 years and I love her and her staff. I don't know what all the complaints are about. Sure, I've had to wait a few times, but it's usually been because of extenuating circumstances. Most of the time my wait is no more than 10 minutes. The office staff is AMAZING. Seriously, they are top knotch! The office is nicely decorated and always clean. Dr. Ardis may not be the most chatty dr out there, but she's warm, professional and knows her stuff!

If you don't actually have a problem, love to wait an hour, and prefer to be treated as if you were a machine part on assembly line in a factory, this is the office for you. Otherwise, go somewhere else. Anywhere else.

My PCP referred me to a psychiatrist for severe anxiety. I've had 2 appointments and was told I wasn't going to be prescribed anything for it because of how addictive they are. I am currently awaiting surgery for two torn ligaments in my ankle and not even taking pain meds. But she offered me medication for ADHD... After your appointment you see the office manager and are sat right next to another person so you overhear their medications and next appointments. Wait times are awful.

I was left waiting for an hour and a half, then the staff was supposed to call me, but a month later, no one has bothered.

Dr. Ardis refused to refill a standing prescription for an anti-depressant because I missed an appointment (due to chemotherapy!). This refusal (without notice, by the way) borders on dangerous. When I canceled, I had requested that they call me to reschedule, but they never did. Prior visit was one month and a few days, but it was more important to get the missed appointment fee and an office visit than to help. Wait time is 1 hour+, even if you are the first client of the day.

I ask a lot of questions. She is very clear. If I don’t understand I tell her. I have not had problems of long waits. Her staff is very pleasant and the scheduler and refill person has always been friendly and very organized. I know the doctor has back problems so maybe some patients have caught her on a bad day. I am a health care provider so I probably understand how offices are run much better than most. If you want more talk time get a psychologist in addition to your psychiatrist.

The staff at this place is a joke. They don't give you the information you need and then they charge you $50 if you can't make the appointment. They told me I was paid up then when I went to the appointment they said I owed them over $100 dollars and I couldn't go to the appointment till I paid. They also said they would charge me another $50 dollars if i missed the appointment. All this for a Dr. that spends about 5 minutes with you and then throws gives you random pills.

Incredibly unprofessional staff. Dr Ardis leaves you waiting for anywhere from an hour to almost 3 hours for a ten minute appt. she is so cold it's almost upsetting, especially when she's suppose to be helping those with mental health challenges and illnesses. She barely says anything during an appt and seems disinterested in you and what you say. Unbelievably rude staff and incredibly unprofessional. Charges $50 for a missed appt. NOT WORTH IT!!! GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!!!!

One is jerri thanks what her patients call her. I can open up to her she makes me feel so comfortable. The other is Dr Neneth . keep up the good work guys. You have me as a patient for life. One more thing they always work with you on paying bill. also if you need to be seen ASAP they will work you in

Took my brother in to be seen by Dr. Ardis. She is probably the single worst doctor I have ever encountered. She was as dull as dishwater, rude and the office staff is a joke.

I called to make an appointment and was told I could not do that without my insurance card. When I called back with the insurance card number, I was told that I could not make an appointment for my husband, that he would have to call and make the appointment himself. When I explained that he was ill and that his doctor recommended I call, I was told that it was Dr. Ardis' policy that the patient must call for themselves and if I didn't like it I should find another doctor. I was then hung up on

The doctors at this office are satisfactory, but the office staff are difficult and rude. Good luck if you need a prescription refilled, have a billing problem or need to reschedule an appointment.
