Patient Comments (10)
Huntsville, AL |
She was distant and insisted on things about my depression that weren't accurate or helpful. This was a while ago, and I've have had time to get some perspective on it. She just wouldn't listen and didn't seem to care how I felt about it. She was weirder than most psychiatrists. Even my therapist, who has dealt with her, described her as "squirrelly".
Huntsville, AL |
Dr Roark is a cold, uncaring clinician whose main concern is maintaining a business model, not patient care.
St Joseph, MO |
I lost complete trust in Dr. Roark during my AZ vacation. I had severe depression, but Dr. R would not talk via phone or Skype. She refused to call in a dosage increase to an AZ pharmacy (it would have taken 2 min.). Receptionist said Dr. R would not help until my Sept appt (it was then July) and that I should go to an AZ emergency room, despite awful wait times. Her crisis intervention skills: None. Her attitude: Cold, rigid, and elusive when I needed help desperately.
Cullman, AL |
If you can avoid it, don't see Dr Roark. Remember, not every doctor graduates at the top of the class and I have a feeling this is one just got by. Please do yourself and everyone else a favor and stop supporting her and keeping her in business.
Huntsville, AL |
She doesn't know conditions and medications, which is basically her whole job.
Huntsville, AL |
Visit went well enough. We discussed my current meds and set the dose to take until the next visit. I requested a refill on one of the meds and she refused. Without any direct discussion with me. Her behavior has been very condescending and non professional. I believe, she believes, she is of the ruling class in position and her moral views. This judgmental behavior controls her actions concerning her patients. This could be a deadly relationship for someone.
Huntsville, AL |
Very unpleasant. Authoritarian rather than authoritative. I felt insulted and degraded.
in Huntsville, AL |
I would not recommend her all she wanted to do was throw pills down my throat she has a disconnect that is felt the moment I met her.
in Huntsville, AL |
I would not recommend Dr Roark at all.
My experience was very unpleasant even degrading. I felt discriminated for religion,her behavior changed towards me after I answered her question about religion, and not trusting (everything I mentioned was questioned in a overly sceptical manner).
