Melissa was very direct and to the point which might be good for some people —however, I was hoping for something more consultative while this felt more like a business transaction. It felt rushed and unemotional.

This was one of the most awful experiences I have had with a medical professional - she asked me ‘who sent you here’ - ‘ I would never fill out this paperwork’ I was humiliated and degraded. Would NEVER tell anyoneto go to this individual - EVER- She was disrespectful, rude and had ZERO compassion - Beyond terrible -

1. Melissa had on an EXTREMELY low cut dress. Why on Earth would any self-respecting professional dress that way? They wouldn't! 2. Melissa was a terrible listener. I had to repeat myself several times because she was not paying attention. 3.Melissa had a very indifferent attitude. She could care less about any of the things that I told her. She also appeared jittery. I will never see her again and I will never recommend her to anyone.

I came early to my appointment and I was seen before the time! I have never experienced that, which was lovely. It was my consultation appointment which usually takes a while but it was very quick, easy, and comfortable.

The office was efficient, quiet, and easily accessible by public transportation. A little early to attest to efficacy of treatment plan, but everything seems good for future visits.

The staff at the front desk were unprofessional - playing with each other like high school kids. Our 40 minute session started 20 minutes late, and thus felt rushed and incomplete. I did not get a professional vibe from the office at all.
