Excellent psychiatrist

Rizwan is one of the rudest doctors I've ever meet. She actually is a bully and she made fun of me, and she loves to gossip about her patiants. She comes off as pissy and ignorant at times and never respects her patients. Yet she constantly threatened me to take my meds everyday, or she will call the law enforment on me and put injections in me. By the way, I take my meds everyday, so I don't know what she's talking about. She also isn't a very good communicator.
Dr. Rizwan is rude, incompetent and intrusive. She has no bedside manner. She does not separate her personal feelings and business very well. If you call to explain any issues you may have, she hangs up on you. She prefers to not speak with her patients at all or only through email. If you have an issue, her remedy is to dope her patients up, hope for the best and tell you that you are fine.
