Cold hearted,nasty, mean psychiatrist. STAY AWAY!!!!

She is very cold and wants to get over with the visits right away. NOT understanding and doesn't care about the patients feelings. She only cares about making money and ending the session. Very nasty!! Stay away! You feel like a burden. The staff is unprofessional. They are cold as well. Stay away from one of the therapist there. She is white with red curly hair. She will cancel your first visit with you if she doesn't like you. Very nasty and unprofessional. People with mental illness and problems shouldn't be treated this way ! shame on her. Karma exists. This practice will fail.
