Takes time with patients

Appreciate that Dr. Small takes time to speak with me and listen to my concerns during appointments. I've never felt rushed and she's always provided good care.

Doesn't "get" mental health

Dr. Small was my primary care physician for one year. I called her office twice for help with some psychiatric issues I was facing and it took her a full month to get back to me. I received a blunt email (she couldn't have taken the 5 minutes to give a call?) a month later with almost no helpful information. I was extremely disappointed in her behavior.

Stay Away From Jessica Small

Dr. Jessica Small is the worst Internal Health doctor I have even met with. I have been dealing with depression, and told her about some issues I was having with my daughters mom, and she replies, "everyone hate their baby daddy the first year." I am a Technical Operations Manager and have working in research in and around Cambridge for the last 7 years. The only reason she felt the need to say this to me is because I am a black male. To think that I made this racially insensitive woman my PCP is beyond me. She then had the nerve to deny the fact that I was having symptoms of depression.. Worst ever The doctors at Harvard Vanguard in general are terrible. STAY AWAY!!!

Possible negligence

I have been most disappointed by this physician, showing a lack of more thoughtful analysis. Not sure why, but her lack of thoughtful approach and disregard for the voice of the patent, seems to border on something that may require review by the medical board. This is be explored further, but wanted to offer my concerns, amidst these "nice" reviews as well.
