This woman should not be in business. I took my transgender child to see her regarding some behavioral issues. She practically suggested conversion therapy, disgusting. I'm calling Aetna to report her.

Stay away from this egomaniac . This man has the compassion of a flea. Never once will he ask you about your feelings . Almost everyone under his care is on the same type of medication and is diagnosed with the same thing. This man is dangerous.

Only Psychiatric Dr available at the hospital when admitted.Not very interested in how I was feeling.Medication changed three times.Response from office staff or Dr. takes hours.No one ever picks up the phone have to always leave message. Office is overly crowded and outdated. Staff is not very personable. Wait time can be up to an hour at times.Dr is hard to understand.
