I'm pretty sure harshly saying "How am I supposed to understand you when you're crying like that?" is not an appropriate way to for a psychiatrist to speak to a patient dealing with mental health issues. Good thing I wasn't too close to the edge, because she would've pushed me right over.

Yeaaaa looks like most other have had a similar experience. One and only visit for me. Like everyone else said the first impression is weird, the office looks like a hoarders home. Either way that didnt bother me much, however even submitting a ton of paper work ahead of time and even printing it out for her, she seemed to have to "register" me during my appointment which seemed to take a while. The rest of the appointment was very rushed, she repeated multiple times thats most of her appts are

When booking my 1st appointment, Dr Packer called, emailed, & texted me repeatedly to find & confirm a time. She didn't have any handle on how to manage her email/phone. On my 2nd visit, she was on the phone screaming while I waited to see her. Upon entering, she was very abrupt and rude and acted annoyed. She asked the reason for my appointment over & over when it had been her that insisted we meet again so soon for an update. She spent 75% of our time booking a follow-up & taking my money

Just terrible. Avoid at all costs. Check out her yelp reviews. Never seen anyone so hated.
