Louisville, KY |
This woman needs to retire. Seriously. My first experience with a psychiatrist. She is very rude, belittling and impatient. She will even roll her eyes at you. I found myself asking HER how she is doing today. If you answer her questions differently than what she asked, she will say "that's not what I asked!!!" all of her questions just seem like she's not interested in you and going thru the motions. Trust me, don't waste your time or money on her. You feel worse leaving than when you came!!

I have seen her several times and each time I leave the office feelng worse than when I came in. She is condescending and judgemental. I feel like a burden to her. I gave her the benefit of the doubt the first couple times, but I would never recommend her to anyone.

Best interest of patient not kept in mind. Rather, preconceived notions seem to determine line of treatment and advice. Patients' individual needs seem to not be important. She "doesn't do paperwork."

i have never felt so degraded in my life. I paid over $150 to get seen by a so-called professional who I thought had my best interest at heart. instead, i saw a person who lived in a world of arrogance and judgement. She tried to shame me by bringing up sex life, weight, social drinking, nicotine (e cigarette), caffeine, and herbal medicines. How someone like this got any kind of medical degree is a disgrace. I felt more helpless walking out than i did walking in.I have so much more to say....
