Dr. Augustus is very knowledgeable and listens to your every concern. She is by far one of the best doctors I have seen for my depression. I highly recommend her.

The doctor is very welcoming and knowledgeable. However the front desk clerk is rude and not knowledgeable. The required 100$ deposit is almost impossible to get back . After several attempts I received no call back from billing. The desk clerk refuse to give out the billing dept contact information.It has now been 51/2 months and I have still not received the 90 day promised return of my deposit. They charge 25$ for almost every document a patient ask for on top of this. Bad business tactics.

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.
