  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

The Receptionist Margaret is Rude, Nasty, Crazy, Psycho,, and Combative. Don't waste your time, Stay Away!

The receptionist Margaret is very and exceptionally on purpose rude, she hung up on me and she treats the patients with the upmost disrespect i have ever seen in a receptionist in my lifetime. When I had my employer insurance Margaret was tolerable but when I called today and told her I had Obamacare she went absolutely nuts, wacko, cucu for cocoa puffs, jumping of the couch crazy/ballistic, Margaret went off the deep end.This woman is very nasty, hateful prejudice in th upmost profound way I can describe, she is loud, combative and rude. Dr. Sofiya has always been very nice and knowledgable but she should fire that NutCase Margaret today. All over the internet there are nasty and hateful comments about Margaret and her combativeness and how she has treated others. Please Dr Sofiya before your entire practice goes up in smoke get rid of the crazy woman Margaret, put her away, lock her away or put her on meds and have a committed please. The worst experience in my lifetime!

TERRIBLE

RUDE - and wasted my time. So unorganized and not in it to help the patient. I have a Blue Cross Blue Shield Plan - Company Policy and its not - Obamacare. The first thing they asked was I in Obama care ?? I said NO My Co- Pay is 20 and they said it would be 130 dollars to visit... This Doctor is also in The Provider Plan and they still denied me the Co pay..saying I pay Month to month doesn't qualify? Obviously not here to help patients... No wonder it was easy to get an appointment

uncomfortable

Best thing is she takes phone appointments. If I go to the office I hear the doctor and the staff talking about the other patients poorly. It is very uncomfortable

HORRIBLE OFFICE STAFF

The doctor is fast, but provides medication. The office staff shouts personal information so loudly that it is not private if people are in the waiting room. It is clear that money is the only concern of this office. There are signs everywhere referencing money collection. The staff's first priority is money, not patient care.

terrible doctor

This doctor is terrible. I went to her for anxiety which she said I don't have. Subsequently, several doctors have confirmed that I do have anxiety which leads to depression. She said I was only depressed but gave me a med that I later found out wasn't for depression at all. I could barely function. On the next visit, she prescribed a new med and I asked her if I could call her if I was having extreme depression again. She said no, just come back in a month.
