I was a transfer patient with Dr. Datta (he was wonderful) but he left the company to practice elsewhere & I was re-directed to Dr. Rao. Dr. Rao was impatient with me & would not listen to any of my concerns with my medicines. I am undergoing FMLA with my work & he dragged his feet on signing paperwork. He told me at my APPT. today that since I am a transfer patient, he has to quit seeing me. He was an hour late to seeing me today & I timed the sessions & they were only 3-4 minutes long.

Incredibly impersonal, I regret ever going to him. I came to him for help in switching my medication to help my depression, instead he has made it worse and isn't listening to me when I tell him my side effects. Now I'm stuck with a new med routine that is making my life more miserable than before. Our last appointment was 5 minutes long, and he didn't address any of my concerns.
