doesnt even speak with patients, go to is to prescribe meds for nonexistent conditions and then lie and say the patients conditions are improving. that is pretty hilarious considering the patients exercised their patients rights to refuse any medications. was so unaware of the situation of the patient that he didnt even know they were assaulted twice in the locked ward by another patient and then rodney king'ed by orderlies. didnt even show up to the habeus corpus hearing because he didnt know.

Absolutely the best counselor I've met; Dr. Zapatel's a lifesaver. He goes the extra mile for his patients, and I only wish I had met him much earlier - it would've prevented a great deal.
