I saw Dr. Donskaya for 15 years. In that time treated me for some conditions I had never been treated for prior. Towards the end it became all about money. Policies changed without notice. The fact that I had been her patient for 15 years meant nothing. She left me on a medication that caused me to gain over 100 pounds. I begged for something else. was told there was nothing else. Finally, in desperation, went to another psychiatrist who worked with me and found another medication. Avoid her.

Front office staff (Margaret and Leticia) were very rude, impatient, and condescending. When I asked clarifying questions about the insurance, Margaret hung up on me twice! I was so shocked at their behavior. Leticia was also extremely rude and hung up once on me when I asked for their address. I have never experienced such unprofessionalism. This doctor's poor reviews are also reflected in her awful staff. Stay Away!

She does not have the interest of the patient in mind. She is rude and belittling to a group of patients that already is at risk. Her staff is just as rude. She gets extremely impatient if you ask questions. She even refused to treat me one time because she felts as though I was doubting her when in fact I was trying to get a full explanation of my options before starting a new medication. She the yelled in front a waiting room full of patients at me about my medical history.

RUDE - and wasted my time. So unorganized and not in it to help the patient. I have a Blue Cross Blue Shield Plan - Company Policy and its not - Obamacare. The first thing they asked was I in Obama care ?? I said NO My Co- Pay is 20 and they said it would be 130 dollars to visit... This Doctor is also in The Provider Plan and they still denied me the Co pay..saying I pay Month to month doesn't qualify? Obviously not here to help patients... No wonder it was easy to get an appointment
Dr. Donskaya was rude and when asked questions about the medicine and insurance. She made it seem like we were beneath her and that we couldn't afford the medicine she was describing.
