Now working at Sierra Vista Children's Behavioral Health Clinic as Mr. Doug Bright. I have NEVER in my life met a less professional health care worker. He was rude, defensive when asked questions. Refused to give me a list of medications to research. Tried to bully me into drugging my 12 year old. Shouted at me for wanted to research his suggestions. He should NOT be working with children. A horrible experience.
