  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed.

THIS WOMAN NEEDS TO SEE A SHRINK HERSELF!!

I HAVE WAITED 1 TO 2 HRS FOR HER. SHE HARDLY WORKS. HER ANSWER TO ANY PROBLEM IS TO MAKE IT EASY FOR HERSELF AND 'UP' YOUR CURRENT MEDICATION. SHE IS VERY RUDE. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A DOCTOR YOU CAN CALL 24HRS, SHE IS NOT THE ONE TO CALL. IF YOU CONTACT HER AFTER HOURS, SHE IS VERY RUDE AND UPSET THAT YOU BOTHERED HER AFTER WORK HOURS. SHE NEEDS TO RETIRE BECAUSE YOU CAN TELL SHE DOESNT WANT TO BE THERE. SHE IS VERY MOODY. IT IS STRESSFULL ENOUGH TO HAVE TO SEE A DOCTOR FOR MENTAL PROBLEMS, BUT TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH UNNECESSARY 'ATTITUDE' FROM A DOCTOR WHO IS SO UNORGANIZED. HER DESK IS A MESS AND IT TAKES HER ABOUT 10 MINUTES TO FIND YOUR FOLDER. I DONT THINK DR BARCHAS CARES ABOUT ANYTHING BUT THE MONEY. IT IS SO OBVIOUS WHEN IF YOU HAVE A SESSION WITH HER THAT SHE COULD CARE LESS.

Works the days and hours she WANTS to work and expects all of her patients to work around HER schedule. She tries to be intimidating to her patients and takes the easy way out by writing prescription after prescription. It makes no sense to have to wait an HOUR to get in to see this looney woman!!

First visit to see the doctor took over an hour. She is preoccupied with her notes and with medication she has prescribed. She does not remember past visits, takes phone calls during session, relies too much on medication and does not treat the problem.
