Do not see this awful psychiatrist. She played power games with me even after I had been seeing her for quite a long time. I agree with the other reviews. She was not only condescending, but she was not straight forward in approaching my mental health and the various options to treat me with the respect it deserved. And I agree with the other review about her outdated system. This woman doesn't know what a computer is. Also, she NEVER returned phone calls from my therapist who wanted to coordinate my care AND she refused to cooperate with my internist about my medication. No, this woman should've retired years ago. Wish I'd switched shrinks much sooner.

Do not come to Dr. Suter for help at all. She is the most condescending, passive aggressive, and rude psychiatrist. To make matters worse, she is incredibly difficult to get a hold of because she refuses to adapt to modern doctor-patient communication practices and absolutely never answers her phone. It seems that she is stuck in old-fashioned psychiatric and business management practices from 30 years ago and refuses to adapt.

I saw Dr. Suter for Depression and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This woman was extremely condescending and self-important. She created an environment where I was afraid to ask questions or talk about my medication without it being implied that I was stupid and annoying. That is not how a psychiatrist should be. After 8 months with her I finally reached my limit and found another psychiatrist. Do not see this woman.
