Unprofessional staff from the providers to the receptionist. Patient care and concerns not a top priority.

Awful. The first time we went, our appt. was at 1:00, and we left the office at 8:45 pm! Nurse never calls back, doesn't respond to drug stores, etc. Takes off when doctor is off, so no meds can be filled. Front desk never answers phone--NEVER. If you want anxiety, this is the place for you!

I have been fortunate to see good psychiatrist in the past. However I have a mother that was under her care. It looked like she had entered boot camp rather than a psychiatrists facility. My mother was a patient there but once we recognized that Uhrich was a pill prescriber rather than a doctor we did not return. She’s the prime example of our broken mental health system. The staff looks like they just got out of bed, the office rooms are filthy and this dr should be shut down.

I have been under Dr Uhrich and her nurse practitioner, Cinderella, care for 6 month now and all I can say is I am worse now than I was before I stepped foot in that door. I have been prescribed more than a handful of medications since day one. At least 5 just to start with. How can anyone possibly decipher what is doing what with so many possible side effects from mixing or just my body not agreeing to it. They do not listen to you at all. They just do not care.

Terrible experience!!! I was prescribed a very high dose of an anti-psychotic that I have never taken before to help with sleep and ended up having an adverse reaction. I ended up in ICU for a week. I tried to get released from the hospital, but they said she would have to approve and she felt it was best that I be sent to another facility (mental hospital) for medication management. I finally got the hospital to get another doctor to release me. Needless to say I won't be going back there ever.

Has a deep knowledge of psychopharmacology and psychology and also has a sense of intuition that surpasses any doctor I've ever experienced. I would recommend her for treatment-resistant depression she is the most qualified doctor in the area. also has a positive attitude and compassionate and supportive affect.
