Horrrible rude and disrispectful doctor. No bedside meanner, very belittling throws her credentials in your face. She tells you how you are feeling not you tell her how you are feeling. Nevet knew MD's were psychics.

Dr. Kitcher was the best psychiatrist I've ever seen. I felt like she really heard me and when she spoke, she talked to me like a mother. The process was seamless and I am very grateful for the time she spent with me and the decisions she made.
