Brilliant, caring, empathetic and kind. What more could you need in a psychiatrist? Oh and she never gives up trying to make you better.
I have seen Dr. Monroe on and off for 20 years. She is a caring compassionate individual who takes the time out to get to know you. In emergency situations when I have left a message with her office she always calls right back.
