Terrible experience. Waste of my time. Dr had NO time nor compassion for me. Did not listen to a word I said in initial interview which became obvious upon our 2nd meeting which was a rushed sh*tshow, where he threw a prescription that hadn't worked at me and proceeded to say he'd see me in a week and ½ (this was while I joined his poorly run day program so I could get intensive help. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!' ) Even my assigned counselor had nothing to offer. WASTE OF TIME. ZERO STARS.
