Horrible place! Charged me for treatment that I did not get. Would not turn over my medical records to another doctor when I transferred. When I was in distress, Drs. did not follow up with my repeated calls or messages. I was terribly sick and in the mist of severe withdrawals and psychosis. Not one Dr. Called me back. Made the assumption that I was drug seeking when I was searching for help! I am absolutely happy that the Drs. at Augusta Behavioral Health realized my problem and addressed my a

During the initial appointment, a urine specimen was taken. Although the provider is in-network, the urine test came back as out-of-network, from a lab I've never heard of. The doctor's office swears that they perform the urine analysis in-house and that it's $35 (the bill from the lab, which was not covered, came back at $365). However, the referring doc on the lab invoice was Dr. Babatope, so it's clear she sent it to an out-of-network lab without informing me--irresponsible if not unethical.

My time with Dr. Babatope was traumatizing and has made me fear seeking help.I went in for my check up appointment after being prescribed what seemed to be too high of a dose of anti-depressant medication. I just wanted a different medicine; when I arrived all she did was ask me a few vague ?'s.This led to her sending me to the waiting room where i was shortly surrounded by 3 officers and was later committed to a psych ward against nurse recommendation.I felt like a prisoner not a patient.

While Dr. Babatope herself seems like a wonderful woman, her staff is incompetent. When I asked to speak with the office manager, she was apparently too busy to speak with a patient.

Dr, Babatope’s PA is who my son sees, and she is very nice. But the front office staff is a completely different story. They are disorganized, rude, and disrespectful. They clearly should not have a job we’re they have to interact with the general public.

Will not fill meds if you have to reschedule apt. She would rather have her psyc patient com off there meds cold turkey. This is DANGEROUS to do. These types of meds can have horrible consequences when not tapered off. I do not trust her. I feel as if she doesn't get you in and your money she doesn't care about your health.

Rude experiences with her always. She does not care about the patient personally, asks far too few questions on symptoms. Shameful atmosphere in her office did not make me want to come back. She told me to taper off Zoloft too quickly, am suffering horrible withdrawal. She sucks. Don't come here.

Dr. Babatope is not responsive. I called her all weekend on the after hours line and she did not respond. Her practitioner responded 6 hours later. Being new to mental illness, I needed advise and she did not get back to me. I ended up not reading properly that my son needed to go to the hospital. His life is negatively impacted forever based on not getting the tinept help. She saw him 5 days prior and did not pick up on him needing help. Also, her office wait times are over an hour!

Dr. Babatope helped me overcome a period of time where I went through severe depression. She and her counselor Ms. Brooks (no longer available at her practice) were both very helpful, understanding and non- judgmental. They offered sound advice and she knows how to prescribe medication that will help, not hurt. She is a great physician and a caring Christian who takes care of her patients.

Most of the time I don't even see the doctor. I see her assistant. When I do see the doc it is less than 15min and she is blunt and mechanical. Short visits might be nice for some people, but not If you have to wait 1-2 hours each and every time you come like I am forced to do. I even talked to the staff to see if I can come at a better time. It does not help. 25% of the staff get a C or better 75% of the staff earn a D-F rating. They have messed up, billing, appointments, you name it. Goodluck

My college-aged daughter visited this office at the recommendation of a therapist she was seeing. From the moment she walked in, she was treated rudely--receptionist, nurse (or whoever gets the preliminary information), and Dr. Babatope. Dr. Babatope didn't even listen to her--just typed on her computer. When my daughter tried to talk about something she has been thinking about, Dr. Babatope rudely said, "We don't do that here". Please be kinder to mental health patients...and smile.

Where should I start? Every time I have visited this office I've waited for over an hour or experienced some type of confusion. Dr. B. barely speaks and just types on her laptop. The worst is the office staff. After being prescribed a different medication, the staff informed me my insurance had dropped me (what?) but they would (hesitantly) try to resolve the problem. It is now 4 unreturned voice mails and 3 days later, and NOTHING. The lack of professionalism & care here is extremely disturbing
