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.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
