I saw this doctor many times at the Phoenix Indian Medical Center. She doesn’t seem to care & doesn’t offer any suggestions other than offering depression medications, that don’t help (me) & just add a slew of nasty side effects. She doesn’t remember me from one visit to the next so it’s starting from square one EVERY time. Not to mention she silently stonewalls patients if they request the demonized anxiety medication (benzodiazepines) even if you’ve been on them responsibly & minimally for YEARS. It’s absurd & for a doctor to not care at PIMC, is not unusual.
