I'd give a -0 if it was an option. Our experience was deplorable! The initial appointment is WAY OVER PRICED, and have a "supposed" medical professional challenge every answer my teenage son provided to you, instead of learning about him as a person and how he has been able to overcome challenges so far, and now asking for your help to get even better. I am appalled that we used your services and the way he was treated. If I hadn't spoken to you myself, I would have thought he was exagerating, but your tone with me was completely unacceptable, and I am sure very intimidating to my son. You are a RUDE individual and a BULLY with a Medical Degree. You have NO business offering your services to the public. If you are considering a psychiatrist, keep looking! We are!

Dr. Vega is an excellent doctor. She saved my life! She is available 24 hours a day, her appointments are on time, never a wait. I can even see her on evenings and Saturdays to fit my schedule. Very dedicated and caring. She’s great!!

Dr Vega isnt interested in treating patients. She is all about getting your money, whether she helps you or not. There is a reason why she has more negative reviews than positive. Do yourself a favor and choose someone else.

Dr.Vega has been my doctor for about 17 years. She is excellent!! She explains everything, what your diagnosis is and the medications she is giving you. I had treatment resistant depression, and only she was able to get my medication right. I happened to read other reviews and they are ridiculous! She follows the rules and has respect for patients confidentially. I love that about her. She's also inexpensive. She saved my life. There is no price to that. Great doctor!

I went in seeking assistance on coping mechanisms with my mother in law because other than that, I'm generally pretty happy but having a hard time with that relationship as my mother in law challenges my patience sometimes. Dr. Vega pushed multiple times to take over my medication management from my primary care physician which I later found out she can charge a fee for- I told her I was comfortable having my PC manage and she then made sure I knew what a foolish decision that was. She was not

Dr.Vega has been my doctor for 16 years. She saved my life. She is extremely caring, bright and responsible. Her office is very organized. I never have to wait and she spends time with me, not only when I've needed therapy, but during just appointments for medication, as well. She returns my phone calls if I need her, immediately. She's the best!!

This Dr bad-mouthed me to my child and has been trying to increase the dosage of my child’s medication against our desire and for no apparent reason. My child does not feel well while on the meds Dr Vega prescribed but this Dr doesn’t listen to my child’s complaints. All she wants to do is increase the dose no matter what. We’ve moved on to another Dr and we are MUCH, MUCH, happier and my child doesn’t even need to be on meds.. I find Dr Vega controlling, insulting, careless, & inappropriate.

I've never been seen by a psychiatrist, who spends so much time with her patients. there is no wait. She doesn't just prescribe Dr. Vega even sees me for therapy. I am another person, thanks for her being so wise when it comes to medications and therapy. This is the best care I've ever had!.
