  • Psychiatry

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

I wrote a review previously that's already posted here, but I also wanted to mention- my son was prescribed or is on Adderall XR. His non-custodial father walks into the office and ask for a script for the Adderall, also note the child isn't with him. The doctor did it. The doctor's office the doctor is working out of is like a drug mill, he's supplying non-patients drugs. Controlled substance. (I did report this). I needed a script for my son same medication, this guy didn't tell me that the dad already got one, I submitted it to the pharmacy, and it didn't go through that's how I found out about it. I was steaming mad. Dad doesn't need one, the child doesn't live with him. Smh.
