Very unprofessional, wait time is over an hr for a 10min appointment. She is a huge waste of time and money. Do yourself favor look elsewhere dr darling/Pusey only cares about herself and billing insurance. Does no listen to you shehas a text book form she goes over than and calls that work?

I waited almost an hour for a 5-10 minute appointment. She is very full of herself and can be aggressive and confrontational. If you have ever taken benzodiazepines she will treat you as an addict and will not give you anyhelpful medicinal options for treating your anxiety. She has a horrible bedside matter and does not respect your opinion when it comes to your treatment and views of certain medications. I gave her three shots hoping she was just having a bad day - turns out she is just a bad doctor. Avoid!

The doctor is fine. The office is a mess. I can't book online, it shows no available appointments even going out months. I call and end up on hold forever, even after pressing zero to leave a message, it's just morehold music... On the 3 times I've been to the office I got there early each time and I sat in the waiting room until 45 minutes past my appointment time. Every single time. They have zero respect for their patients' time.

When I made my appt with Dr. Pusey I as told that this doctor treated ADHD, she does not. The staff made me hangout aka waste my morning for over 30 minutes of filling out paperwork and taking my payment BEFOREtelling me she did not treat my condition. The doctor called the receptionist several times from her office while I was sitting there to ask questions about my visit (in front of other patients) completely violating my privacy and being very rude. Like I said before, she asked why I was there and then waited another 20 minutes before telling me the doctor did not treat ADHD. Not sure who is 100% to blame for the misconception of booking but I would not go back anyways based on my exoerience. Very cold and rude.

The courtesy of the office staff is deceiving as this doctor was apathetic, refused to listen to my concerns and jumped to conclusions about me in a matter of minutes. I have no respect for her or her practice. It isdisappointing that such individuals exist especially in a helping profession.

Poor time management. Waiting room was crowded and had to wait for over an hour. The waiting time was longer than the time that the psychiatrist spent w/ me. I was in and out of her office in less than 15 min. Obviously, they overbook clients.

Don't bother filling out the ZocDic forms because they don't know how to access it. Only first appointment and I felt a bit awkward. Say across a huge desk from her. It definately speaks of "who is in charge"....not a warmsetting. No one knows my bipolar more than me. I've tried many meds and I'm just trying to find a new doctor as I've now moved here. I felt a bit rushed trying to explain the last 20 years....like she was ready for the next patient. We shall see.

This was my first appt. with the Dr. Pusey. I thought she listened to me and provided very insightful and helpful information. My issue is that Dr. Pusey advised me that she would like me to start on 2 medications andthat she would call it in to my pharmacy however it was never called in. I tried calling the office but they were closed so I left a message about my medication not being called in and asked for a return call. No one called me back the following day. This morning I called the office and the girl who answered the phone was extremely rude. I told her that my medication wasn't called in and she acknowledged Dr. Pusey did prescribe me 2 meds however 1 of them was not called in. I told her I knew that was the reason for my call and I wanted to find out why and that if this is the way Dr. Pusey runs a practice, I didn't think I was a good fit for them. All the girl said was she couldn't answer that question and that she left a note for the doctor and would call back once she gets a response. This is a terrible first impression for a new patient.

Doctor Pusey is great. However, both times I went to see doctor Pusey I was told that I did not have an appointment at the scheduled time. The receptionist was adamant that she had not made a mistake, despite my havinga hand written note from her with the date and time of my appointment both times. The first time I let it slide and returned another day. The second time the receptionist told me that the doctor had no more hours for the day, but after I refused to reschedule, somehow found a way to get me in. Very unsatisfactory.

I am the Dad and I was the one who found the doctor on the website. She never invited me to be with my daughter which was strange based on the fact other doctors would speak to me after they spoketo my daughter. I was also disappointed with the amount of time spent for a first visit. Then the shocker was giving her prescription for her first visit when the information I researched on the doctor claimed no meds on the first visit.
