This insane woman should be sued

She's basically a drug dealer, you can literally just ask for a prescription of your choosing and she'll write it up. She prescribed me extremely high doses of xanax and adderall, and when I ran out of my prescription I suffered a seizure from withdrawal and she didn't say ONE WORD about it. Zero concern, probably afraid to admit fault to deny liability. She's also the most unethical, unprofessional doctor I've ever met. She will openly discuss other patients confidential information, her personal opinions of them and laugh about it. She also will use up your appointment time on the phone with her cable provider, googling things on her ipad, talking about her trips to Africa, making you look at her hideous artwork, anything but therapy. She once made me walk her dogs outside the office! I have no idea how this woman hasn't had her license revoked or brought up on criminal charges.

Did nothing but give pills

If this dr is helping you then it's prob because you're getting all the pulls you want. She does absolutely nothing to help with the issues that cause you to go there in the first place. I went there years ago and within 15 mins I walked out with over 6 prescriptions for really additive meds. Just be careful if you go to her. She's unstable.

if you dont like dogs remember they dont effect her ability as a physician. I have been seeing Dr. Oberkirch for over 2 years and listens well and adapts quickly to changes in your condition and she is always willing to change a med if it is not helping you. She works with the patient, not to appease her ego. When reading reviews on this site keep in mind most people who take the time to write a review are doing so because they had a bad experience or are promoting the pill mill they found, so take them with a grain of salt.

She is very unprofessiona. She cares more about her dogs than her patients. Check out your bill that Betsy sends to you. There are always errors on it in oberkirch's favor. She will argue with you about it too until you continue you call her on it. The only reason why she is still practicing medicine is because there are very few doctors in the area.
Abusive, unprofessional, uncaring, obnoxious!!!

She had been treating my spouse for drug addiction. I had concerns about how I suspected that he was abusing the highly regulated drug that she prescribed for him. She came out of her office wearing ripped jeans and had an unkept appearance. She began the session by discussing people she knew in town and sharing personal information about them and by name, no less. Wasn't at all interested in what I had to say and started looking up my question on her ipad. Said she never heard about this drug being abused, when clearly there is lots of information by reputable sources that state it clearly can be. She talked about having the afternoon off and what she had planned to do. Dismissed my concerns and continued to talk about herself and the wealthy people that lived in the area and how they became rich. This woman should not be practicing medicine. I have reported her and I hope everyone else does that have experienced this unethical behavior of hers.

Just decided to look her up because I have been getting disgusted. I have a close family member that has been seeing her for over a year and a half now. Has gotten to appts that were double booked and told to go home. However, when they had to miss an appointment because of illness of a pet they were charged for the appt. The rates are ridiculous. When I picked them up from an appt and asked how the appt was, and how they think their sessions are going, I was told that "ok, we just talk about her dogs". I want to see this person weaned from the addictive medication being taken, and given real therapy. Not a discussion of her dogs and vacations that she has just returned from. The cost of her "therapy" is very draining on the person paying the bill and the Dr. knows this, yet threatens to not see the patient if the bill is not paid. How can you do that to a patient that is now dependent on the type of medication that you have them on, and will have a serious reaction should the Dr. not write the script. How long does it take to wean a patient from Suboxone? Or do you just keep them on it so that the appts. continue????

Extremely interesting. This woman was in my class in the 6th grade! I was surfing the net to see what happened to people from my past. I recall that she wrote something so obnoxious in my 6th grade year book that I removed the page. Amazing that after 45 years she is still an obnoxious individual!
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Anne M Oberkirch - Posted on October 4th, 2011
I had seen her for sometime and found her to be very demeaning and self centered. She talked about other patience and their issues. (forget confidentiality). As others have said, money is her main drive. If you are looking to get better do not go see her. She is quick to write a script and I feel very bad for people who are seeing her, as the chance of them getting better is slim to none. If you are addicted to something and looking to get better she will demean you and never help your self worth at all which is the most important part of recovery when there is an addiction. Please pass her by and get help from a qualified person!

This woman needs a psychiatrist! I saw her 20 years ago and all she talked about was herself and her dog (which she brought to the office). She was scary. When I finally got the nerve to call her and tell her that I was not going to use her any more (she was of no help and I dreaded going to see her), she flew into a rage and said to me "you'll be back!" There are many 'real' and caring physicians out there! Keep looking! Stay away from this lady!
Lacks compassion and only cares about money

This woman seemed nice and friendly at first, but I was horribly mistaken after a few visits. I was unable to keep an appointment due to an unforseen emergency, and she whacked me for a late cancellation fee! If this 'Doctor' is concerned about the well being of her patients, I would have expected a little more understanding and empathy from her. She is definitely more concerned with scheduling multiple visits a month --and she is a PSYCHIATRIST, not a PSYCHOLOGIST. It doesn't make sense to me that a doctor in her profession would need to see a patient numerous times in a month, especially since all she does is throw prescriptions around and provide no therapy or suggestions on how to cope with mental illness. Yes, there may be exceptions to the rule and there are patients that may need to have several visits a month with a psychiatrist, but still, she definitely affected my faith and confidence in the mental health industry. Now I currently am seeking treatment from no one, because of her lack-luster performance as a psychiatrist.I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.Also, as much of an animal lover that I am, her two dogs were very distracting and I felt that they should not have been present during patient visits. I was charged for the time she spent talking to her dogs when she was supposed to be talking to me! Total FAIL.
