She is so great and is super straight to the point, yet compassionate at the same time!
She is so kind and caring... Plus, I love that I never, ever have to wait a long time in the waiting room either????
She was great! I’m so relieved I was able to find a psychiatrist that’s knowledgeable, reassuring, and easy to talk to.
Always professional, quick and efficient .
Andrea placed me on hodgepodge of medications, which had no considerable benefits less adverse ones. The nurse's knowledge and experience in psychiatric medicine dwarfs in comparison to those of licensed medical doctors. I'd be hesitant to call her approach methodical nor structured.
An expert in carrot and stick, she dangles the solution before you but does not follow through on achieving the goals set forth and instead, mandates more than frequent follow-ups. In the end, she keeps you coming back hinged on the hope that will never matriculate. As a rising psychiatric nurse practitioner under the guidance of medical doctor Ehab Yacoub, she aims more to grow and protect her business than actually help her patients. It saddens me to this day to see what this particular medicine has come to. I hope this approach to peoples' health and form of ethics is only privy to her particular field and not others such as general and other specialty diseases.
Nurse Sczesny’s knowledge and experience of psychiatric medicine is very limited despite of focus in the field. Could not say if competent is the word i’d used to describe her methodology and practice.
I still remember my very 1st appointment. I came 1/2 hr to fill (as per the usual paper work, etc). Instead I was seated for at least 40 min until the nurse left her office and handed me a long questionnaire(barely bothers to look at) as she proceeded with another patient. All this time, I was thinking, why didn't they just give this to me beforehand - nothing has changed since then. This time, Andrea accused me of lying, which I thought was extremely rude given my commitment to her practice - not an easy provider to build a relationship with
Andrea looked to her pad and copied the previous prescription with complete disregard to any changes in condition since my last visit. All the same, she does not respond in kind individually but uses a more one size fits all approach.
Poor bedside manner. Very cold
The new In-N-Out Burger of modern psychiatric practice. The office was over booked, but that was the least of my worry. Ms. Sczesny pumped and dumped patients by the patty finishing one after the other like a fast food assembly line. You’re in her office one minute and you’re out the next minute with your fries(aka meds). And everyone once in a while, they get your order a little wrong. Even doctors aren’t perfect, but - in the end, we’re all human aren’t we?
This doctor's office staff is extremely unprofessional and rude. Try calling to confirm your appointment, insurance, anything, and they'll speak in a rude tone and even hang up on you (despite you speaking calmly to them). I even voiced my concerns in person to the nurse practitioner and she said she's heard it before...
Andrea is very personable. She’s also always professional and she’s very helpful. I would highly recommend her to anyone
Was a quick process. She's very nice. She was attending a couple other patients while I was there and left me in the room to fill out a questionnaire and she was back right when I finished. She's a good listener and is honest. It seemed a little too easygoing to get a prescription filled in under 15 minutes like that, but she was honest about what she was prescribing me and suggested therapy after I told her I opposed antidepressants. It's hard for her not to be honest since a lot of those meds get a bad rep, but she seems like she truly cares and I walked out with the prescription that she didn't force me to get filled. She wanted me to do what I think is best and come back in two weeks.
Love Andrea - at first she seems efficent and to the point but as you get to know her she genuinely really cares. After hours etc if you have a legitimate problem shes there!
