Good Psychiatrist, but Impossible to Get a Hold of in Case of Problems or Emergency

I have been trying to reach Dr. Alleyne's office about a problem with my meds for 2 days. No response. Nothing. The office staff has been totally unhelpful. This seems really irresponsible.

Sweet, on time and caring. She works admirably hard in general between St. Elizabeth's and her office although, this makes it very hard to get an appointment at the last minute or for emergencies.
