Dropped as patient--14 yrs. Going through difficult time due to close family deaths--did miss appts. No compassion. Staff could be very ignorant/nasty. For the best because found out I had been misdiagnosed as bipolar. Had taken lithium for bipolar for 14 years. Went into kidney failure once from lithium toxicity, spent 9 days in hospital. Was put back on it by this dr. The new dr. took me off it completely in 2014; was told I was overmedicated. Now in total remission from depression.

When my mom had emergency surgery, I couldn't cancel a 7 AM Monday appointment. So I too got a letter dropping me as a patient. I now know this is your practice, as another reviewer reported it. Is this even ethical? Multiple requests for a call back have been ignored. When I did call and ask if it was his office, the responder said "I think so." Seriously? When I did get an appointment, I waited 3 months for it, being new to the area.

I called in to schedule an appointment as a new patient. The secretary told me I would need to do an intake interview and they wouldn't have any appointments for a month. The call went well and I was told the next step was to be called by the scheduler to finalize an appointment. They never called and when I called to see why they claimed they left a message that they were referring me and got hostile with me. The provider they referred me to won't take my insurance either. Thanks.

Very difficult to access. Unpleasant staff screens calls. Tried to get in for a second appt. (said my meds were not right) and it took weeks before I could be seen. Became sick w/the flu and accidentally missed the appt. (something I would never do - an honest error on my part) and did not refill a presc. b/c the dose was affecting me adversely, so he dropped me as a client that same day via mail. in all my years, this was a first! Do psychiatrists take the Hippocratic oath? I am appalled.
