This woman is an absolute fraud of a doctor who fails to take into account medication in regards to patient behavior, and will completely disregard that factor entirely in an attempt to deflect responsibility of the patient’s well-being away from her. Don’t even bother with this charlatan.

Dr. Firth is the ONLY psychiatrist who has ever taken the time to listen to what I have said and the symptoms I have described. She is careful and conservative in prescribing new medications. Even though my insurance no longer covers my visits, I have chosen to stay with Dr. Firth as a cash patient rather than find someone else despite the fact that others may be covered by my insurance.
