CHRISTIANS AND EVERYONE ELSE BEWARE!!! I went to my very first ever appointment with a psychologist, as I was experiencing depression because of the pain from severe degenerative arthritis, recent surgeries, slow healing from surgeries and severe neuropathy. My appointment was at 3 PM. I arrived early, like they asked. The receptionist was very sweet. I was in the waiting room next to Dr. Rice's office. I could hear him typing away on his computer. He was alone. At about 3:12, I was considering saying something to him. He finally came out and invited me in. He looks at my Beatles hoodie and says, "Beatles huh?" He was obviously not a fan. He led me to a chair and proceeded to sit down in his big, comfy recliner. He puts on a neck pillow, like you see passengers use on airplanes--puts a pillow on his lap, then puts his laptop on the pillow and fully reclines. I was going to ask if there'd be popcorn, but thought perhaps this was part of the therapy. How was I to know? He started asking me a bunch of questions. I said, "I already answered these questions on the online application that I did." They told me that they needed it ahead of my visit so Dr. Rice could read it. He said, "I'll read it later." Then he asked, "Do you and your wife sleep in the same bed?" I replied, "Yes." He said, "Oh. I didn't think that because of your size you and another person could fit in the same bed." WHAT???!! What kind of psychologist would talk to a client like that? Needless to say, I didn't schedule a second visit. I called my insurance company and told them what happened. The gal couldn't believe what I went through. She kept apologizing. She said she was filing a grievance against him. I hope he is taken off their network. What a hack!
