Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
Not a solution. She was treating my son for ADHD and it felt like a drug dealer transaction. She never once checked his vitals while prescribing medication. Cant recommend to any children.
Poor recordkeeping. Kept billing the incorrect insurance company despite instructions not to do so. Be VERY careful with her billing practices. She went way beyond the 90-day maximum claim submission for my insurance; then threatened to submit me to Collections after months of trying to unsuccessfully correct her error. My daughter begged for a different psychiatrist after unsatisfactory sessions.

Her bedside manner is horrible. she asked me if i was a lesbian because of my rape issues. Shes EXTREMELY rude and never asked me any questions as to how i was feeling, she just writes out the prescriptions and sends you away.
