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.

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!
