Andalusia, AL |
I am so disappointed with the experience I had here. The nurse was kind and listened, but Dr. McLeod swept in for about three minutes. She hardly looked up from her phone at all. I did not feel heard or listened to. She's very cold and standoffish. I won't be returning. I made an appointment with her because I could get in quickly, but I'm just going to wait to see someone else, even if that's months away. I left her office in tears and more upset than when I came in.

Likely one of the most professional and compassionate physicians I have ever encountered. Highly highly recommended.

I wouldn't recommend McCleod to anyone or any doctor from Laurel Oaks for that matter. She diagnosed me with defiant disordes even though I don't get in trouble with the cops, or defy my parents. I got put on a med for opiate addiction when I don't even have opiate addiction. Her nurses wouldn't even listen to me when I suggested that I thought my diagnosis was wrong, they just pull out my diagnosis and said this is what you have. I have been going for a year and only seen McCleod herself once.

Cold, poor communication, made "diagnosis" without asking ANY questions (yes, any) about the symptoms I was suffering from, could not explain what else might be causing the symptoms, offered $400 "brain wave" test that would require stopping current meds to get an official diagnosis (I thought that's why I was paying a psychiatrist?) despite being told that stopping those meds leads to horrible withdrawal. Literally walked out of the room when I was mid sentence only returning to end interview.

She doesn't really listen. As a matter of fact, her nurse does all the work (nurse DOES listen) and McCleod sweeps in for about 90 seconds and doesn't make eye contact; never gets off her smartphone; and leaves.
