I hope from the bottom of my hear that this message can help someone else. If I could write -0 stars I would. This was the worst medical treatment I have ever received in my life. These are some of the points: 1. I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I did not feel heard or understood by Dr. Gomez. She completely minimized my feelings and symptoms and made it seem like it was not big deal. 2. Dr. Gomez DID NOT PROVIDE ADEQUATE INFORMATION on medication information and side-effects. Once again, she completely minimized potential side effects and would not provide information on length of treatment plan. She would simply reply: " let's not talk about that right now". I asked about a specific medication and she stated: "that medication is like a bandage, it will leave your system quickly". All of this was after I asked multiple times about medication information and side effects. 3. SHE IS NOT A BENZODIAZEPINE INFORMED MD. She is not aware of the side effects, chemical de

I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Mencia Gomez. I've seen MANY doctors over the course of many years and it's rare to find someone as compassionate and knowledgeable as she is. From my first visit, she listened and actually HEARD me. She truly CARES and doesn't just sit back, write notes and hand out scripts. I've had some incredibly scary moments with my bipolar, especially this past year, and she helped me get through to the other side where I couldn't see any light at all and all I could see was darkness......that's changed tremendously! She wouldn't give up on me....even when I wanted to give up on myself. She's an incredible gift in my life. Intelligent, professional and kind. I HIGHLY recommend her!

I have been an patient of Dr. Gomez, for nearly four years and see her several times/year. At the time being new to S. Florida and starting from scratch, I began my search and created a short-list. After interviewing several local physicians, it was a clear choice! Dr. Gomez exemplifies professionalism and embodies the core values you look for in any “good person.” She quickly earns trust and is great at what she does. A true professional who honors integrity, a passion for what she does and is truly great council. When it comes to accommodating me and my hectic life, Dr. Gomez is incredibly easy and readily able to make any necessary adjustments to fit me in (her already very busy schedule). Whether it be on weekends or during lunch hours, Dr. Gomez is always willing and able to help! I attribute this to her continued success! It has been a pleasure to be her patient and I give my complete endorsement to anyone looking for a great Psychologist or medical doctor. Truly one of a kind!

I saw Dr. Gomez yesterday after only calling in the morning. I was amazing that she had an opening the same day that I called-- now I see why. Dr. Gomez was the worst interaction with a medical "professional" that I have ever seen. I would not wish her on my worst enemy. After being diagnosed by multiple psychiatrists and psychologists with Type II Bipolar Disorder and BPD, she told me they were all wrong, and within 15 minutes of meeting me, gave me an entirely new diagnosis-- blaming everything on my father who I have not even seen or cared about in over ten years! She also told me that I definitely don't have BPD because "I don't like borderline people. And I can see if they are just by looking in their eyes-- I can see it in their eyes and I don't like them". She then only prescribed brand-name medications because she likes them better, even though no insurance covers them. The office also had my insurance information hours before I came in and told me my appointment was covered, o

When I moved to South Florida my most pressing concern was finding the right Psychiatric Health Professional. Via recommendations from friends, I became a patient of Dr. Gomez De Vargas. I was seeking a kind, compassionate, and progressive thinking psychiatrist with a firm knowledge of alternative treatments. Dr. Gomez De Vargas is all that and more. She is an amazing psychiatrist and an amazing human being. Just knowing that I can count on her automatically reduces my anxiety level!

When I moved to S. FL from NYC the most difficult part of my move was finding the right Psychiatric Professional that I could connect with. Via recommendations, I found Dr. Gomez De Vargas. A match made in heaven! She is so understanding, kind, and non-judgemental about my emotional needs and my medications. She has been so instrumental in helping me to adjust to my new life here in S. FL I have been her patient now for almost a year, and I really enjoy our sessions. She is a true gem!

Doctor Gomez de Vargas is very unprofessional and I would not recommend her to anybody. She will treat patients only if they have a petty problem such as a phobia to heights or something trivial like that. She kicked me out in the worst moment of my life, knowing that I had recently gone through lots of traumas and abuses and that I was suicidal. She refused to assist me anymore just because someone talked to her badly about me. She did not even wait for me to find another doctor. She told me I

Dr. Gomez takes care of my elderly mother. We travel from Jamaica to see her twice a year. She is the only doctor who was able to talk to my mother from a spiritual and an emotional perspective in such a way that shaked her inner most motivations. God bless her and her career.

I travel from South America to see Mencia. I have been doing that for quite a while now and I know that she has other patients that come to see her from all over the World. Do you wonder why? She is a great doctor and I appreciate concierge Psychiatry. She is very knowledgable and I feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gomez if anyone asks for a referral.
