Took my autistic son in hopes of finding a new provider with compassion. Dr. Dodd was not it ! Prescribed a medication for him, which we tried and when he had side effects, I contacted her and was told to “make an appointment”. None of her claims on her website about how she cares for her patients are true. This is a adolescent boy who is nonverbal. Waiting for her next appointment was not an option. I have never had a physician refuse to speak to me on the phone or via email or text before,

THE WORST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER MET IN MY LIFE!!! This lady is such a bad doctor, I have no idea how she even has a license to practice. For one, NEGLECT is a form of abuse. She met with me, told me I had these health issues and has since, done nothing to help. It's literally a doctor telling you you're sick, but denies you treatment and neglects to help you get better. She didn't accept my calls, emails. She keeps telling me she can't meet with me and a HOST of other things. DO NOT GO TO HER!!!

Ordered urine test. OK, no problem. Two weeks later, she tells me the sample was too dilute and demands a new test---this time observed---that same day before my appointment (a few hours away). Getting less OK. Nobody does observed tests, so she eventually relents and allows me to take a normal test---with this stipulation: IF THE NEXT SAMPLE IS TOO DILUTE, SHE WILL STOP PRESCRIBING MY ANTIPSYCHOTIC. (Ironically, this med's fact sheet suggests drinking a lot of water.)
