It was full of errors.It said to bring meds to eval,when I took them out,he said he didn't need to see them.my meds. R pre packaged in daily doses.I cannot manage them.He wrote I manage my meds~?WRONG so,I was informed state farm was no longer paying for my TBI or meds,How reckless! I need to be tapered by Dr

I had to be evaluated by this dr.due to my car insurance request. I have a premiun medical motor vehicle policy,& they are apparently tired of paying for the minimal costs of my meds.So,this dr.is obviously bias.His narrative report contained at least 5 gross errors. He didn't administer the nuerocog exam,an assistant did.I have taken at least five that I recall in my past,all more clinical. Three most recently by the same dr.Pre,post,1 year after the car accident. Concussion, post,TBI,5??drURMD

Not intrsted in figuring out what issue is. Obsessed with if I got into trouble or not in school(35 yrs ago). He was arrogant and insulting. After a 5 min meeting then testing he told me that I just didn't want "it"badly enough or I would learn to make lists. When I said that testing didn't take into account life skills and that staying focused on a single task was impossible that at home (for ex.) I wander off and start 10 things, he told me my husband should be proud I get so much done!

I can only review based off first impression of Dr. Santa Maria from today. With that being said... I feel Dr. Santa Maria is a consummate professional that understands EVERY mental health condition per DSM 5; common language and standard criteria for the classification of mental disorders. Footnote: Psychiatrists are doctors who take the Hippocratic oath to apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihili

I also had questions about his suspect diagnosis as the others. Everything seemed to revolve around anxiety or depression, yet, he only met with me for all of five minutes. He made accusations in his report based on issues that he did not inquire about but he referenced things that happened many years ago which are irrelevant today. Very Frustrating and Very Unprofessional. Thankfully my doctors took the time and focused on my CURRENT signs and symptoms and gave me an accurate CLINICAL diagnosis

Relies on out of date testing techniques. Had two testers. One didn’t tell me the test was timed until I asked. She didn’t look at me the entire time. She stared at her computer. He talked down to me and didn’t have an explanation for my results. The doctor seemed like he was in a hurry to get done. The entire experience was the biggest waste of time, money and energy.

Not properly trained in diagnosing ADD in girls. Relied far too heavily on outdated diagnostic criteria. Experience was expensive, frustrating and unhelpful. Did not address our concerns. Go anywhere else.
