This is my third visit to the. Dr. And it's my own fault for trying to give her the benefit of the doubt! My first appointment I waited 3hrs past my appointment time!! She then proceeded to doze off at least 4 times while I was talking. My second appointment she was 1hr 1/2 behind but apologized for falling asleep on me. I began to realize she did not pick up on anything I said last time and would have to start completely over. Now I'm waiting here for my 3rd appointment 2hrs behind schedule!

Be prepared to wait for hours after your scheduled appointment time- No exaggeration!! Be forewarned- Don't have a psychiatric emergency and expect to be seen or even get a phone call back from her for days on end. I went to many different shrinks before finding her. I met w/ her monthly for a few years. She was by far the most knowledgeable out of all the psychiatrists I saw.

This is the most ABSURD doctor. If you want to waste your entire day waiting to be seen, and I mean that from the heart, go to this doctor. I can't even believe how long it takes for her to see you. My appointment was for 2:30 today it is now 3:49 and I still have one person in front of me. Absolutely ridiculous. I would rather deal with my mental problems on my own then ever see this old woman again.
Newton, NJ |
Horrible!! Finally made the decision to get help and I was given a bunch of conditions that I needed to meet before she'd see me. Forced me to involve friends in my problems and pushed for me to visit the ER to be evaluated. When I balked she canceled my appointment. I was lectured by her assistant like I was some sort of child. Thanks for the mental health help!!!!!
