Winston-Salem, NC |
Extremely quick to prescribe medication without adequate counseling. I found out after a year of taking three separate medications she put me on that they weren't nearly as effective as a good therapist. I wish I hadn't had the year of horrible side effects.
Clemmons, NC |
She was cold, insulting, pushy with medication, and failed to provide adequate talk therapy. The medication she was pushing, I later discovered, was not appropriate, according to another top psychiatrist in town. It was very difficult to schedule appointments. The receptionist seemed to rarely be there, and only answered the phone about 10% of the time. Her schedule was pretty open - most psychiatrists in town are hard to get an appointment with. The office environment was clean and fine.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
