She's Okay, but Wants You to Take Meds
Self-verified patient of Dr. Christina E Vento - Posted on February 9th, 2018
The first session I had with Dr. Vento was great. I felt heard, she didn't really push the meds at first because I had told her that I would prefer to treat my depression without medication. The second time I saw her, she was like a completely different person. She was very cold, uncaring, and she rushed the session and practically cut me off. I feel like she's great if you want to take medication. When I reiterated my reluctance to take meds for depression, it seemed as if she was not respectful of that. It's as if she got upset that I didn't want to take medication. I also expressed having thoughts of suicide (which she did not check up on). I've seen this woman a total of seven times, and just when I think she may be a trustworthy psychologist, she makes a snide comment or is condescending. But, what can you do when you don't have insurance and you can't find another psychologist that will agree to see you after-hours once a month? I would go to another psychologist if I had the resources and knew of another psychologist who would agree to see me after 5pm (because that's when I get off work). I think people are better off finding a more competent and compassionate psychologist than Dr. Vento. Only see her if you're in a situation like the one I currently find myself in (no insurance and work schedule that doesn't allow me to see someone on the regular).
