Granada Hills, CA |
This woman is the meanest most unprofessional uncaring accusatory so called professional we have ever encountered. She is sitting in for our regular doctor and was rude and basically accused our daughter of lying to renew a prescription. I would NEVER recommend ''this person for care.

This woman is a doctor?? Not enough room on here to describe my horrific experience. I mentioned that I stupidly pressed play on a vid someone posted on Facebook, not knowing it was a super fast beheading! She got aggressive and snapped, "Well, why did you press it ?! She seemed highly annoyed. I told her I don't need or want anti-depressants and that a gyno wrote me a prescription because I got occasional PERIOD CRAMPS. I laughed about it. She then said, "well, it does help with pain." ?

She diagnosed me with anorexia nervosa, which was the right decision, but that was the ONLY right decision she made. After the diagnosis, she told me to learn to get over it because it was a phase and you're over it now. She dismissed my escalating delusions as magical, childish thinking. The first 2 meds she put me on didn't work and she gave up. After a few months she said I was fine. Later found out from other psychiatrists that I have BPD, bipolar, and other severe conditions. Not good
