Patient Reviews (1)
Pittsburgh, PA |
This man is absolutely horrible. He 302ed me after trying to get me to answer in the affirmative, despite the fact that I kept saying I had no suicidal ideation. He called my parent (I am 24 years old). Further more, he rode in the car with my folks and myself to the hospital which I found to be quite disturbing. He also claimed he'd never done it before, which spoke to his lack of proper judgement. Stay away! I don't understand the positive reviews. He's pure evil. Didn't bother to show up.
