Patient Reviews ?
The treatment I've been through helped me a great deal, my depression is over now. First time in two years since I started taking medications I feel I don't need it anymore and now I'm gradually stopping taking them. Dr. Ghelber has supported me all the way, she is the best specialist I've seen so far.
I've just finished a 35 session transcranial magnetic stimulation treatment guided by Dr. Ghelber and it helped me a lot. Dr. Ghleber is the first specialist who found the right approach to my problem as medicine did not work well for me before. The magnetic stimulation was the only way to make things better and it worked indeed.
Dr. Ghelber is amazing and I found her very helpful professionally through the treatment course. We've tried several medicines after she found what was best for me, and there has been a change for the good. I have normally spent around 20-30 minutes waiting for an appointment which, basically, is the only thing I didn't like. Her office feels like home, friendly environment, and the office staff were OK.
I made an appointment with Dr. Ghleber because I heard that it was very easy to make an appointment (it took me three days and many phone calls to make a first time appointment). After waiting a few weeks I finally got in to see the Doctor. I had to wait over an hour after my appointment time to see the Doctor. It was actually 1 hour and 15 minutes. The nurse was just basically RUDE. She never smiled or made conversation. She looked as if she should of been a patient instead of a professional in this doctors office. The front receptionist was the only good experience I had at the office. When I finally was able to see the doctor I immediately knew it was going to be an issue. She spoke to SOFTLY and with a extremely deep accent that I couldn't understand her. I immediately tried to move the couch in her office closer to where she was sitting so I could hear her better and she quickly told me not to move the couch. I said I needed to move it to hear her better. I was not allowed to move the couch. This was the beginning to a horrible office visit. 80% of the time I was asking her to repeat herself for 2 reason. Reason number ONE was because of her ACCENT and me not able to clearly understand her and the SECOND reason was because she spoke so softly. I have GREAT hearing and could not hear her. I kept asking her to repeat herself and also saying the word 'excuse me'.. hoping that it was give her indication that I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND or HEAR her. I even mentioned a few times that I couldn't understand what she was saying and It was as if she ignored me. After my many failed attempts at hearing her I finally just decided to keep nodding my head up and down. She made her diagnoses and I had to ask her a few times to keep repeating herself. She prescribed one drug to me and after asking her THREE times to explain the drug and its side effects - I NEVER UNDERSTOOD her answer and just said ok. After I left the appointment it was the pharmacist who finally was able to tell me what Dr. Ghelber prescribed me. The pharmacist spoke ENGLISH CLEARLY and with a DEEP ACCENT and also didn't speak like a small mouse. The pharmacist also mentioned how she wasn't the doctor who prescribed this particular drug but was amazed that a psychiatrist would prescribe me this drug. The pharmacist asked me what I was being prescribed for and I was unable to her because I COULD NOT understand my original diagnoses from Dr. Ghelber. I didn't get my prescription filled because I didn't even know what it was for. After my experience I emailed the doctors office about my experience and asked for a refund and in the days (weeks) to follow I was lied to by the office staff and was told that no matter I was not going to get a refund. I was told that if I didn't understand the doctor while I was in her office during my visit, then I should of told her that and left the appointment. I did tell the doctor that I couldn't understand her but did not want to be rude and just leave the appointment. I also was left alone with the doctor. The office nurse and receptionist both left for the day and locked me and the doctor in the office. That was another reason I didn't want to leave the appointment. I was thinking about myself of course but also about the doctor. I didn't want to bring on a conflict with a NEW Doctor. I wish now I would of just stood up and left the appointment. In the week after my appointment I was told a different thing from the office nurse and the office manager at Dr. Ghelber's office. One person said one thing and the other person said another. All things I was told reminded me of when I was in high school and caught one person lieing to the other and the other person making up a lie to defend themselves when I caught them in a lie. The office manager said that the insurance company for the office would not honor my request to be reimbursed for my horrible experience. When I asked to have the name of the insurance company for this doctor I was told they could not tell me that. Just one more thing that complicated the entire process. Basically I paid $300 for a horrible experience at a doctors office. I paid to get a diagnoses that I still don't know what it is. I paid $300 to sit through a appointment where the LANGUAGE BARRIER was horrible and couldn't understand her. I paid $300 to get lied to from different staff members at this office. I can not change anyone else's mind about their thoughts or desires to see this doctor, but being in a country where a Doctor can act unprofessional, her staff can lie and be just as unprofessional, then I feel I can write my HONEST and sincere thoughts about my TERRIBLE experience at her office and hopefully save someone else from making the same mistake.
I'm happy about nearly every part of the treatment, except for sometimes it's hard to make appointments and I need to call in advance. I've received medications against depression and eating disorders, started to go through some change already. still can't say I'm totally OK but I'm on the way to improvement. Depression became less of an issue, and so are the eating disorders. I like to visit the clinic, the office environment is very nice and Dr. Ghelber is very nice too.
Dr. Ghelber needs to lose her medical license. She is not compassionate and a very poor listener and communicator. She had me on so many meds I was fuzzy. Then I missed one appointment because I was so depressed I couldn't get of bed. There was no contact from her to see if I was ok. Then I received a letter telling me she would no longer see me leaving me with no way to continue my medication - medication you need to go off gradually, not all at once. This put me into a tailspin. It has been months and I am still not able to work. DO NOT GO TO THIS WOMAN!
This is my second year with Dr. Ghelber, I've been visiting her to take care of my depression. Medication didn't work for me and she has been applying transcranial magnetic stimulation which has helped me a great deal. It's a one hour session every day for seven weeks, and the effect is amazing. Dr. Ghelber is amazing too, I really enjoyed my visits though I feel that now I might not need it anymore.
Her treatment is effective. I had anxiety issues, tried other medicine before, nothing ever helped. It's been like this for years and now I've had this one visit, Dr. Ghelber gave me an infusion of Ketamine and it worked amazingly. I'm going through a big change now.
This is the second time I visit Dr. Ghelber: I visited her 4 years ago, then had a break for personal reasons and came back now. I've been suffering for years from eating disorders and occasional depressions. I've had several meetings and it seems good so far, I only had issues booking an appointment but eventually it has been settled up.
I had been under Dr Ghelber's care for a little over a year. At first, I thought she was a Godsend. She seemed to really understand what I was going through. But then it seemed like she got tired of seeing me. After admitting me to the IOP program at Baylor, I went in for a routine check in. After asking me a few questions, I was admitted to the hospital against my will, even though I was not a threat to myself or others according to the admitting hospital. My words were twisted to make it seem like I was homicidal & suicidal and because that was reported to the hospital by Dr Ghelber, they insisted on holding me for a week. My husband tried talking to Dr Ghelber to get the situation straightened out and she basically started screaming at him that it was none of his business and he had no right to question her actions. I was constantly threatened to be sent to the state hospital. I had been doing well in IOP and was scheduled to graduate that week, but apparently, since I answered two questions with "I don't know", she deemed me homicidal and suicidal. After I was out, she did not check on me until almost a month or two later and that was only to see if I wanted to schedule an appointment. I politely refused. Like I said, I truly trusted Dr Ghelber in the beginning. I thought she was the answer to my prayers. But the last experience I had with her has ruined the trust I have with future psychiatrist. I have yet to find one that I trust, because I have that constant fear of being imprisoned against my will. So tread lightly with her.
I saw Dr. Ghelber for depression. I missed one appointment due to severe depression (I couldn't get out of bed or leave my house) and she sent me a letter telling me she would no longer treat me because I missed the appointment. No one from her office called to see if I was alive, in the hospital. There was no contact or concern.
I found common language with this doctor and I really appreciate her professionalism. It's been some time since I started my visits and I'm feeling I've been through a huge change, I am a different person now.
Based on my diagnosis Dr. Ghelber has recommended me a 35 session treatment and for which I've never felt sorry about. It's something new I've never tried before - called transcranial magnetic stimulation. A 7 week long procedure, 5 sessions per week. Quite long but it's worth it. I liked it because it's a natural method without medications and without side effects (since I'm sensitive to medication I'm very careful about it, so this one was perfect for me).
I felt a huge change after a single treatment. In a nutshell - came in depressed, walked out happy. Thanks, Dr. Ghelber.
Dr. Ghelber is very attentive and I was happy with her service. I hope all my issues will be resolved and I won't need any treatment again, but if I ever do I'll certainly go to her. Besides spending some time looking for a parking place, everything was divine.
I personally liked the way they treated me, the staff was very nice and polite, I had no issues waiting for the appointment for too long. This is not my first time at Dr. Ghelber and I am quite satisfied with her, the way she follows me up and takes care of any problem I bring up.
My original appointment was one day and I was not given a reminder notice. I got there and the recoptionist let me know that my time was wrong. Then another appointment was set and we had a family emergency. I sent an email to them that I thought they would recieve. I got an email notice telling me I had an appointment 25, the same day I got a letter telling me that I owed them $300 for a missed appointment. Absurd! Jenna Smith tried to help me work it out but to no availe. She refused to be my doctor! Take the high road and help a patient Dr. Ghelber. Don't use her, she might do you the same way!
I am very happy with Dr. Ghelber's treatment: she is sincere, professional and caring, she took very serious attention of every word I was saying. I will surely come back to her if I'll ever have to.
I have been having this issue for a long time till I reached Dr. Ghelber. She is amazing. This is getting a whole lot better now, I'm still in progress but I can already tell my condition is getting better.
I had a diagnosis for a long time. She really listened to me. Ran some tests and found something completely different. I am a different person
I attended Dr. Ghelber's office several times after losing all hope with other doctors and now I can tell there is a change for good.
to specialists I've visited in the past. I had issues for quite some time and it got a lot better now. Thanks Dr. Ghelber.
I recommend Dr.Ghelber.She took care of me in a very good and sincere manner. I feel better since she became my doctor.
