The Doctor is a straight up con artist. She took me in and insulted me with saying "Oh, Your one of his." One of his what? She looked at the medications I was already on, I was transferring doctors, and said "I don't even know what this is. I can not prescribe it." Long story short this woman may be helpful for some but don't count on her doing her job. In the end she gave my father an ultimatum. She'd refill what she "Could" for $380 or we walk Benzo not mood stabilizers were filled.
I believe the person writing this review had been seeing a psychiatrist who had been arrested for participating in a xanax drug ring. He had prescriptions for so many controlled meds some of which my license didn't even cover, that I referred him to inpatient detox. He was angry that I wouldn't cave to his father's unreasonable demands to continue his prior providers illegal practices. I gave him brief prescriptions for some of his meds so that he wouldn't go through withdrawal in the interim.

Dr. Trachman has been amazing. I have been to four previous psychiatrists and tried dozens of anti-depressants -- all of which had extremely negative side effects. Dr. Trachman listened, did important test and recommended the first anti-depressant that I have tolerated and is working. I am grateful beyond words and cannot recommend her highly enough.
