She would not listen to my concerns. Asked, "do you want meds or not"! Seemed to just want to push meds. First visit with my daughter, she only spent 10 mins with her and came back with a prescription. I advised of my concerns and she dismissed them. She stated my child is depressed based on 10 mins. Stated my child had a suicide attempt but that's not the case. I'm not sure the doctor was reading my child's file. Never going back!!!! ..... ever!!!!
