I completely agree with the other reviewer- I had a horrible experience with Mary Coakley. She's belittling, egotistical, lacks compassion, and is clearly in the wrong profession.
She is the last person I would trust with my, or anyone else's emotional health for that matter. She has no understanding of the often dangerous drugs she disperses like candy, and it's a mystery to me how she sleeps well at night. Of Paxil and it's dangerous withdrawal symptoms, she stated "I have no understanding of that", of Lamictal inducing mania and racing thoughts, as well as a stimulating effect, "I don't believe it's the drug that causes this, you don't know what you're talking about". I could go on, and in each circumstance there is literature online to back up each of the instances of which she had little to no understanding. She has no idea what she's doing, and it's a scary thought that she is aloud to treat people with her methods...

I was pleased with the majority of the psychiatric staff at this clinic, and especially with Dr. David Golden whom I saw for counseling, as he was easy to talk to and knowledgeable in his subject matter. I was, however, very disappointed with my experience with Dr. Mary Coakley, as, not only did she trivialize my problems during counseling sessions, but seemed distant and uncooperative. In general, I found her to be unprofessional, and her insensitivity resulted in the ultimate termination of my visits. Other than this unpleasant incidence, I would recommend this clinic for its relaxing environment, central location, and accessible staff.

Pros: Easy parking situation, relaxing interior, helpful staff.

Cons: A less-than-friendly receptionist and general environment, but welcoming in other aspects.
