Dr. Parsons provides a therapy session during medication management appointments but seems unqualified to do so. I discourage women from seeing this doctor. He was quick to suggest a minor insecurity about relationships was a sign of borderline personality disorder. In addition, more than one occasion he gave sophomoric and unhelpful statements about how he thinks men think. If you want a doctor who is all business, asks about symptoms, signs the tablet, and sends you on your way, this is not your guy. He will spend an hour trying to do a therapist's job, which was a waste of time for me. quotes from my 3 visits: "Men don't like drama." "Just stop dwelling on it" "Some of your friends might see you as too much trouble" It's worth mentioning that the last quote was during a session where recent suicidal ideation had been discussed. If you're looking for a doctor who minds their own business except when necessary and speaks with tact, you should think twice before scheduling an appointment with Dr. Parsons.
