I am not sure how this person has a license. After treating my wife at Highland she discharged her with only a couple of days left of her medications. My wife, her parents, me, and two different pharmacies called her to get a refill for over a week and we never got a response from her or her referral services. Eventually we had to make an appointment with another psychologist to get her back on her proper medications. If you care for the person you are sending to her please reconsider. We have heard a number of similar stories from other patients about her.

This doctor was filling in for my son's normal doctor while he was at St. Anthony's Behavioral Health center. My teenage son was there for many reasons, one of which was ideas of suicide. They had put him on a new medication one day and was calling me to release him early the next day because there was a huge winter storm coming. I made it clear to the nurse on the phone that I wasn't even sure if I could make it down to pick him up since I was half and hour away and it was already sleeting. But I went to get him anyway. Before I left my house to drive down there, I made it clear that I really needed his new prescription to be called in right away so I could pick it up ASAP before the ice came, they told me that wouldn't be a problem. However, after I got there, they informed me that this doctor refused to call in the script until that evening (when by that point my driveway would be iced up and me not be able to get his script and not for a few days because of this storm. All she had to do was make a simple 5 minute call to walgreens. The staff at both the hosptial and walgreens both agreed that it was very unprofessional of her and called her back to let her know that I was upset. She again refused and couldn't even give a time as to when I could expect it called in. Then she stopped answering her phone. I tried to have walgreens call her, but they couldn't reach her either. I think it is extremely unprofessional and irresponsible for her to discharge a suicidal patient early, right after starting him on a new medicine (one which should have the blood levels checked ever 72 hours) (without checking them at all)... and then making it impossible for the parent to even be able to give her son the medicine for days.... I will be writing a letter about this to someone... medical board or something.. how dare she be so aloof with my sons health care and consequently his life.. she is not a doctor that is there for the patients, or at least she wasn't for my son and me.

I wouldn't be so picky as to what time the prescription was called in if there wasn't a major winter storm expected to hit in the afternoon making travel difficult if not impossible. But there was and she didn't seem to care.
