.

Sent me into a manic phase with Cymbalta w/o mood stabilizer, and too rapid a withdrawal from same. He finally added Lamictal, after repeatedly dogging me during sessions with what I "wanted," rather than providing guidance and informed opinions. He never returned calls with questions/problems with my medication, including from two separate ER doctors where I went with an allergic reaction to the Lamictal. He erroneously prescribed Trazadone in combination with Nardil. Gave me conflicting and confusing advice about Nardil dietary restrictions. Repeatedly demeaning and condescending, including writing me up as "upset when she wasn't able to get in touch with me," although ER discharge instructions specifically were to immediately get in touch with him and follow his recommendation regarding continuing the Lamictal. When he discovered that I'd made a written complaint to the Maryland Board of Physicians Quality Review, he was incensed. Accused me of illicitly obtaining his home address, although this does show as his address of record at his Health Grades profile.
