JUDGEMENTAL and HURTFUL I only met with Dr. Franklin once and he is the only psychiatrist I have ever seen. Several times in our short meeting, he made faces (almost cringing) at my responses to his questions. Some of his comments I found highly offensive and belittling. I left feeling judged, confused, and far more hurt and vulnerable than I had before walking into that office. My advise? RUN the other way so you do not wind up walking out with an experience like mine.
