Barrington, RI |
For 7 of the days I was hospitalized I called Dr. Etter's office and left a message for him to call me back. It wasn't until the 7th day that I finally was able to speak to him. I had refused to sign a patient confidentiality waiver, nevertheless one of the nurses told me they had spoken with Dr. Etter and that he had told them my entire medical history. When I confronted Dr. Etter about this, he lied and said the hospital hadn't even called him. Sad since Dr. Etter is very kind and friendly.

Dr. Etter is stable, consistent, keeps me on base and friendly, and very open. He has helped me a great deal and his office staff is very friendly and also a great deal of help. He does not gush with emotion, as I find I get the message loud and clear and it is both life altering and very right for me and where I want to be both emotionally, psychologically and especially helpful in interacting with other people. It is all right and good to me as I am able to have growing and lasting relationshi

Dr.Etter constantly disregarded anything I had to say and is so pill happy you wouldn't believe. He prescribed medication on 3 different occasions that not only didn't help but made my existing conditions worse from the side effects.. Which he said were uncommon when after research is clearly a lie. Every concern or issue I had was met with a different drug he wanted me to take. He showed no skills of being able to treat any mental issue without relying 100 percent on pills. Very close minded Dr
Dr Etter is a heartless man with zero emotions. He is the kind of man who lets his patients leave his office crying their eyes out still because they only had a 15 minute session with them. He's arrogant, and manipulative and never have I ever had a psychiatrist refuse to give me refills on a medication I've been out of for a week with no refills. This man is calculating and he will have no stars from me. Do not go to this man, he is horrible. Save your money for a human, not a robot.
