Look at reviews before making an appointment this Dr. She was on a list provided by my PCP's office that accepted my insurance. I only had one visit with this doctor. It was really just an expensive out-of-pocket ordeal. Availability was fair, ~ 2 weeks out. The appointment was in a residential area so it was confusing to find. I have never had a doctors appointment in a home before. The initial visit was not constructive or thorough. I was basically referred back to my PCP for follow-up.

Got a referral to her, and all she did was tell me all the reasons she couldn't see him, but then said if I brought all his IEP's and medical records she would see just my husband and I. We did this, then she agreed to see my son. She decreased his current meds, saw him 2 times, then when he finally

A highly dangerous doctor, who gives out drugs like Risperadol for something as simple as anxiety. Be careful and do not send your childminder to this woman!
