I definitely will not return as it is certain that he has decided I am a whiny patient. It is difficult enough to ask for help which is something he said at my first appointment. "If there's ever anything you need let me know." I wasn't sure of his behavior at my first visit as he rolls his eyes a lot. I decided not to read into it and just count it as his mannerism. He always seems to be trying to hurry up so he can get to the next patient. On my first visit, I went in because I kept injuring myself at the hip. I told myself it was muscle strain but didn't want to keep self-diagnosing because it kept happening. Even knowing that I haven't had a job in three years and that I was leery of all the co-pays, he prescribed a muscle relaxer for my back instead because of my new patient history form. He never mentioned my hip again and referred me to an orthopaedic specialist for my back. After two of those visits plus six sessions of physical therapy, my insurance finally cleared me for an m.r.i. and x-ray only to find what I initially said was the case and nothing new about my back.

The muscle relaxers do come in handy sometimes, so I just bit the bullet and decided to go back to him. I went back a couple weeks ago because I needed paperwork for a volunteer opportunity. I got the blood work done, but since I paid a co-pay I figured I could at least see the doctor. Same quick interaction and let's get you out the door rush feeling, but he didn't seem to be rude. He gave me to one of the ladies in the office to handle what I was trying to say to him and went on about his day.

Today, I went because my counselor convinced me to stop dealing with my mental illness on my own and at least ask Dr. Moody if he could prescribe something to help with my anxiety as I continue to look for work until I could get back to seeing a psychiatrist. I let the worker know what my appointment was for, so I imagine it was in my file. While I was sitting in the room, one of his assistants came in looked at me and said "yup" then left. A second one came in to see if the doctor had been in (I wasn't in there more than 5 minutes) when I said no she asked as she walked away "well then where is your file?" So, I imagine the doctor saw what I came in for and looked at my history and made up in his mind how to respond.

When he came in, he said welcome to Mondays what can I do for you. I tried to figure how to begin and after I said that my counselor suggested that I at least ask if he could prescribe something... he cut me off and hollered at me about what a psychologist couldn't tell him. He was using all his body language to tell me that the "psychologist" was out of her league and trying to tell him something that is not his authority. Having previously been prescribed something for anti-anxiety until I could get in to see a psychiatrist, I got the impression that he simply made up in his mind that today either wasn't a good day to ask him anything or I must be another whiny client that he's sick of... he began to try to ask me about other symptoms outside of my anxiety and depression after telling me that specialists are needed for their field of expertise and that my "psychologist" was not cleared to say that my physician should do anything that a psychiatrist should do. I was absolutely put off by his tone and response making up in my mind that I didn't need or want anything else from him. So, even after paying another co-pay and not getting what I went to him for... I simply left.

I thought it was necessary to write a review because if it were 10 years ago when I first started seeing professionals for mental health, I would have been exploring ways to kill myself afterwards based on already feeling overwhelmed and then being hollered at while trying to ask for help. I didn't feel humiliated, but I did feel like I was out of rope at my wits end after leaving this morning. Thankfully, I was able to speak to someone at a local church afterwards to get myself back together. My heart goes out to anyone who just can't take another rude answer as I was only expecting to hear, "no I can't do that" or "I can refer to someone" if he wasn't willing to write the prescription. Anyone can just about handle that, but being yelled at and hearing that you're not being listened to by someone who swore to do no harm is highly damaging. I'm sure his first thought would be to thank God for losing me as a patient rather than being remorseful or bothering to think to apologize.

Dr Moody is one of the best doctors I know, and I come from a family of doctors and nurses (practicing in other states or I would be going to them lol). He has always treated me with respect and really listens to what I tell him, which has not always been my experience with others. At the end of the day, he may tell you to take an apple to keep you out of his office, and you leave feeling light hearted and happy to have such a fun loving and tentative doctor. A great example of great care.

I have had an awful experience with them. I waited for 50 minutes before being told they forgot about me, then I was asked if I had fasted for my test, and I had not because I wasn't told I needed to, so my time was wasted. The nurse was EXTREMEMELY rude. She told me it was my fault, yelled at me, snatched papers out of my hand, and slammed the door. I have never had anyone be so rude to me in my entire life!
