They do such a great job of never overbooking appointments, even though they are extremely popular. I know for a fact that they have lots of business, but I've never had to wait a long time in a crowded waiting room like other places I've been too. It always frustrates me when I have to spend a bunch of time driving around trying to find a parking spot, but I didn't have to do that here. I found one right away, and it was right next to the entrance. When I arrived for my appointment the friendly staff seemed to be waiting for me. I've been to other places where I had to wait forever after I arrived for my appointment, but not here. I was very impressed. I always have the best experience every time I have an appointment here. Although I have not had much to complain about, I have noticed that they strongly adhere to the customer is always right policy and if anything goes wrong make every effort to correct the situation.

I have seen this type before, will waste your time and refuse treatment. If you are taking any pain medications or any scheduled drugs, or if you use alcohol or any other drug, I would strongly suggest not mentioning it if you expect either antidepressants or therapy. He is also under the false impression that antidepressants such as Paxil are not addictive. Nice fellow, very outdated views.
