I was placed as Dr. Shela Alavi’s patient. She does not do any psychological testing to determine any specific diagnosis. She went only by my own self-reported history. After the initial appointment, she literally spends 5-10 minutes max with me for a 20 minute appointment. I confronted her about my frustration after a year of feeling blown off with worsening symptoms. To “lengthen” our appointment she literally read back my chart to me. She is defensive and unprofessional. I don’t trust her
