The Dr herself is nice enough but the whole appointment felt extremely rushed. She was with another client, cutting intomy appointment time and I didn't even receive my full 45 minutes. I had maybe 30 minutes of her time. I went a second time assuming that my first appointment date was just an off day but no! The office is always extremely over crowded, wait time is ridiculous, and service feels very rushed and inadequate. Do not recommend!

She's good. I've only had a few sessions with her, but they've been helpful. Dina Makarova is a social worker, not a psychologist or psychotherapist proper, but this works for me. Only problem: the office where I see her has anIMMENSE wait period. You sometimes have to wait 2 hours before you see anyone. Not cool.

She didn't address any of the issues I came to her for. She'd have 2 thoughts and repeat them the entire session but wording them differently each time

Dina was wonderful but an hour and half wait was unreasonable. I attended this session as a therapeutic measure for my situation. The long wait caused additional anxiety . Hoping my next visit will be different ( wait time that is)

My daughter shouldn't have to wait an hour and a half (close to 2 hours!) for an appointment, especially if she needs to talk to a therapist. It seems that they overbook here, because if everyone had a set amount oftime for their appointment, there is no reason that anyone should have to wait at a therapist's office for more than 15 minutes. I would accept even 1/2 hour wait , maybe. Very frustrating because no one at the receptionist/front desk seemed to think that it was a big deal. I decided to try again with another appointment the following week to see if the first time it was a fluke, but the second time was just as long if not worse. The therapist herself was fine, but my daughter was slow to warm up to her and now we're not coming back at all because of the long wait time.
