Chantilly, VA |
Yes, he makes you fill out a questionnaire while you wait for your appointment...every appointment. It's tedious when your answers aren't changing anymore. And he makes you go through an epic questionnaire when you start out but I see these things as an attempt to quantify your problems since his main deal is figuring out what medicine to prescribe. And he knows his medicines inside and out. The office itself leaves much to be desired and the secretary seems generally flustered and confused.

Look further for your mental healthcare professional. He'll get you medication if thats what you need, but his bedside manner and every other functionality of his office was a nightmare- office was like a shack and unwelcoming, his secretary was aloof, odd and scary. He begged for my money when I hadn't paid an extremely small copay after 2 weeks. I ran out of his office sobbing my eyes out after explaining that I needed to buy food that week, as I was a college student. Look. Further.

Fundamentally flawed approach to treatment. All based on survey questions - might be great for diagnosing 100 people at a time, but on an individual basis it's not effective, and doesn't inspire confidence.
