This self-proclaimed addiction-medicine 'specialist,' has cookie-cutter ideas regarding the treatment of mental illness within the addict population she treats. She seemed cold after I, the patient, wanted rationale for contradictory diagnoses made within less than minutes of meeting and suggested drastic changes to long-standing and effective medications. This Psychiatrist, in my opinion, will do what looks good on paper, perhaps, but doesn't appear to think outside of the box or even acknowledge there is anything outside the box. I once saw a Psychiatrist who thought Vistaril was a miracle drug and the only appropriate medication to treat pretty much any complaint; this Dr. appears to feel the same way about Neurontin. Anything outside the need for a SSRI and possibly a last resort for Suboxone, I'd recommend finding someone else. Very nerve-wracking appointment.

Negligent

Completely clueless about addiction medicine and mental illness. She would be happy to have you on a drug cocktail without any regard for side effects ...

She is uninformed and reckless about the drugs she prescribes. This doctor is not to be trusted!

Diminished me as a human being. She made assumptions that were not true, and hurt me very deeply. Thank goodness I have other physicians who have been helpful to me.
