Dr. Tchikindas was very presumptuous and judgemental. I think she had it fixed in mind that because I was looking for a second opinion, offering me a new diagnosis (Bipolar I) was the best option. She was fishing for information thatwould confirm her suspicions, with no room for doubt or understanding that patients might be susceptible or pressured in the moment to comply (due to the intimidating authority imposed by a doctor who has limited time and resources to even care for you).

After several visits I have come to see Dr Tchikindas is a very patient and competent psychiatrist. Bedside manner is good too though at first I didn't think so. Give it time.

She was frustrated that my history was complicated. Very dismissive of my concerns and appears to have disregarded some very pertinent medical and psychiatric information of mine. Her recommendations for medication regimen changes werebizarre but we did come to an agreement. This is only a review of my consultation. I will see how my next few visits with her go. Overall, her bedside manner is just plain awful but that isn't necessarily a good indicator of the quality of treatment.

Didn't seem like she really cared about my personal story with mental health - only wanted a broad picture and put me in a box. Walked out crying. Would not recommend.
