Patient Reviews (1)
Ashland, OR |
Dr. Lymberis spent the first 1/2 hour talking about herself but left out any discussion of her fee, then suggested going another hour to take notes on my son's condition. She waited until my son was at his most vulnerable after discussing his trauma with her, then sprang an exorbitant bill on him -- $1200! My son is a grown man, but physically and emotionally traumatized. He was further traumatized by Dr. Lymberis's approach to his case. This is troubling, deeply unethical and non therapeutic.
