I'm shocked that her philosophy says that her goal is to provide compassionate care. I don't think she has a compassionate bone in her body. If I could give 0 stars, I would. She did not take the time to listen to me and she jumped to major, incorrect judgements of me. As a result, I will never be returning to the office that she is in. I have seen many psychiatrists, and she was by far the worst.
