Should be sued

Dr Alphonso and her lackey Bethany Hughes who I refuse to address as Dr because she’s far from it should be brought before the medical board. I suffer from pretty severe mental illness and have not found a medication that works and doesn’t spike my blood sugar and blood pressure. Every other month it’s a different med. I know it’s probably aggravating but I’m pretty sure it’s a violation of some sort to have me stop the med that I was having problems with and not replace it with another med. Sent me home with no meds at all! My next appointment was even worse. The lackey Hughes who has only seen me once barely gets me in the room and begins falsely accusing me of random stuff. It sounds like nonsense but it severely affected me. Even the thought of just going to that building is more than I can grasp. After that incident I requested my medical records and there’s all kinds of inaccurate and incorrect information they put in there. If you’re a current patient of Dr Alphonso and especially lackey Hughes request your records. It’s free. If you’re not a patient stear clear!!!!!!

refuses to listen and pushes drugs on her patients that she wants you to take her drugs of choice rather than giving you what you already know works well for you.

I was going to a real mental health professional for over a year who finally(after about 20 years of trying) found a med that really worked well to help me get a good nights rest. when she stopped taking my Medicaid I was forced to try mhmr and ended up in DR AlPHONSO'S office. hade to wait over an hour even though my apt was for 9:00 a.m. when I tried to explain my situation to her lackey (a women with the haircut of a seven year old boy). she simply was not interested in what I had to say about my struggle for a good nights rest. she repeatedly asked me leading questions trying to get me to answer in a way she wanted me to rather than listening to what I had to say. and got angry with me when I refused to answer the way she wanted me to answer. I didn't understand what was going on until she left the room and closed the door to go get dr alphonso. ( who was literally waiting on the other side of the door) after they had their private pow wow they both came inside and told me I shouldn't be taking the meds that have been working great for me for months now for my sleep issues, instead I need to be taking their favorite go to drug gabapentin which is for nerve pain and seizures for gods sake. I reluctantly tried it for one night because they left me with no choice. I was told there would be no negative side effects and it was much like what I was already taking. bout three hours after taking it not only was I still awake but I felt paralyzed. could barley force myself to move. finally fell into not a decent sleep but what felt like a drug induced coma. when I awoke in the morning I could hardly move. it took me about two hours to recover from the "decent nights rest" dr Alphonso and her lackey dr hughes put me through.do not waste your time looking for help at jps mental health or DR ALPHONSO AND HER LACKEY DR HUGHES. THEY ARE THEY MOST ARROGANT SELF RIGHTOUESS QUACKS I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS IN MY 20 SOMETHING YEARS I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS.
