I thought she was pushing a certain medication as opposed to listening to me about what medications worked for me in the past. wanting my credit card information and giving me a weird email were red flags as well.
she is too money focused and not patient focused.. never again
I felt she was very judgemental. She scolded me for being late a few minutes, but had the previous day she had cancelled on me with only a 20 minute notice. I was already on the CTA at that point, and had the appointment scheduled for over two weeks. I found both her and her receptionist to be quite rude. This was an intake appointment, so I was telling her about my habits/routine. I was a college athlete and continue to stay active and lift. I'm also very petite. She remarked "why do you want to get big muscles? Don't you think that would look weird on your small frame?" No. I don't want to get big muscles (nor do I have huge ones!), but I would never ever call someone weird for that! It made me feel really awkward like I had to defend myself. Horrible experience. Won't be back.
She listened to my concerns and responses, recommended holistic solutions (vitamin supplements and so on) in addition to medication, and assessed a relatively complete picture of my life in order to get a feel for my current mental state. Her manner is not particularly warm, but she is thorough and you can be sure she's trying to address whatever her perception of your problem is. I say "her perception" because I expressed concerns about a mental illness I thought I was experiencing symptoms for; I named them, and she shut me down immediately. "You don't have that." My self-diagnosis was invalid to her, which is discouraging considering I did weeks of research and journaling only to have that shrugged off. My other issue is with the missed appointment/ cancellation fee. I had the flu and couldn't attend my appointment, so I was charged that fee. Make sure to ask about that before making a first appointment. The review box does not allow me to mention the specific amount, but it was significant enough that I, a person who lives paycheck to paycheck, was unable to afford my phone bill and food for the following two weeks. It's significant. For this reason I cannot recommend that other patients utilize her services. I did not return after my first visit.
Excellent physician and staff. Highly recommend.
Dr. Gomez has very strong opinions about what you should and should not do with your life in ways that do not pertain to her medical advice (i.e. don't drink coffee, don't go out in the sun, don't drink wine). Sort of like having a judgmental aunt who you are trying to receive psychiatric help from. She also doesn't believe a lot of side effects are happening that are common and occur. There is a zero tolerance week ahead cancellation policy to add to the fun.
She listened really well and asked great questions. Really connected with me.
Professional and provided good advice.
Excellent! I am a very complex patient and she listened carefully and explained to me changes that needed to be made to my medications. I would recommend her highly.
I don't like to be mean but she was very unprofessional and judgmental as a psychiatrist. I felt very uncomfortable and honestly almost got up and left half way through my appointment.
I felt very comfortable and thought she asked good questions. I like her way of doing her job.
I felt like I was being chastised during the appointment. I emailed her office to cancel the following appointment a week in advance but the email was "lost" resulting in me paying the full amount for my "missed" appointment.
