Glen Burnie, md |
Do not ever go to any of the doctors with MRC if you want any help! I met with a psychiatrist in their glen Burnie office. She barely talked and did not try to get to know me as a patient. She took out her medication book and told me to pick one. No discussion about what's best! I gave her one more chance and went for a follow up. She was 45 mins late and she saw me for 2 mins. No problem solving with my meds that weren't helping. All stayed the same. It was the worst experience! Stay away!

I have been a patient of Dr. Cephas for about 8 years. He is caring, honest and straight forward. I really appreciate these qualities.

Patient abandonment
in Glen Burnie, MD |
I visited one of the other associates in his practice several years ago over the course of about a year and a half. She took me seriously. Unfortunately, at one point Dr Cephas took my case from her without my consent. Without ever having met with himself before, he gave me an incorrect diagnosis (since overridden), suggested I stop therapy, and recommended extremely inappropriate things about my personal/sex life. I stopped going after that and it shook my trust in seeing other doctors.
