Verified Patient Reviews
Constantly double booking herself so even if you get an appointment scheduled, don't be surprised to find out that others have the same appointment. Hard to get a hold of the doctor, so be prepared to call / text multiple times. Very nice person but needs help with the administrative side.
Dr. DiFrancesco is unlike any other psychiatrist I've ever met or seen. She truly cares. She has a deep interest in understanding you as a whole person- your mind as well as your chemistry. She is a true professional. Her vast knowledge and experience is unique. Above all, I know she cares and is a kind and wonderful soul- she is helping me immeasurably. I recommend her fully and without hesitation. She is a treasure and I am so thankful to have found her.
