She tries to milk you out of money. She told me I had anxiety and depression after sitting with me for any hour and letting me take a 5 min survey on a iPad, which my family and friends thought was weird, but I didn't listen. She did not act as a therapist whatsoever. All she did was give me a prescription that does not help and sent me on my way.
Charges $25 to send a fax and charges $50 if you call in sick for your appointment. Terrible professionalism and unethical. Milks people out of money any way possible.
