What People Say About Dr. Rachel Sowards, MD

No matter how depressed you are, schedules appointments too far apart. After a year of poor response, she said it “takes time to adjust medications.” Not a year, during which I remained so depressed I had to leave my job.

first appointment I was literally on the brink of suicide. poured out my heart and she made me feel like I was a liar and scheduled a follow up for SIX WEEKS later with nothing but a mood stabilizer. I was on medication for ADHD and Anxiety for at least 5 years prior to having my children (eldest is almost 5). it was a LONG road to find what medication worked for me with MANY terrible side effects. I don't remember what medicine I tried 15 years ago..... I just know what worked for me perfectly for the 5 years I was on it. I am not a dr. but I am NOT a liar. Don't go to her if you have had previous medications or doctors that have since closed their practice and expect her to believe anything you say or try to help you.

No compassion towards her patients. Brushed off my wife when she needed her most. All this woman wants to do is write scripts for anti depressants. Doesn’t get into the actual talking or caring about what’s going on.

Hands out medications without follow-up, and follow-through, when there are issues with it.
