in 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...more
