Baltimore Psychiatrists Reviews
When I came for my appt, I did not have to wait for very long (it was in the AM). He said my name, walked with me to his office, and immediately started asking me questions about my marital status, sexual orientation, etc. He did not say anything about the process of the appointment, nor did he give me a heads-up that he would be asking lots of personal questions. Yes, even though I knew he was going to ask a lot about my history, moods, health, etc, I still think it is appropriate to ask permission or, at least, warn a person that an appt is going to last over an hour (as mine did) and be full of lots of questions.
For the entire appt, he sat behind a computer and typed my answers. He gave no warning that he would be doing this; instead, he looked at the computer screen at least 85% of the time. Also, he would sit and type and SAY NOTHING for minutes at a time. I felt very removed from the whole experience, as though it would take too much time to look me in the eye, empathize, or let me know "hey, I have a lot to type, I want to get it all down, please bear with me."
I was also put off that he does not have very good office hours--- during my 2nd appt with him, he got annoyed that he had to stay late by 15 mins (5:15!) because I had questions about a new medicine. His last appt is at 430. When I said that I prefer evening appts, he told me that I should be able to ask my employer for time off under the Family Medical Leave Act-- as though I want to tell my employer that I have a psychiatry appt!
I would not recommend going to see him unless you are someone who does not like to have an emotional connection with their psychiatrist. I have not met her myself, though there is another psychiatrist (female) on-staff who DOES offer evening hours, though I hear there are lots of people who request her (go figure), so she is not currently accepting new patients. I know, I tried to switch.
Actually, when I asked one of the staff members about the process of switching, she asked me why I wanted to do so. I said that the other professional offers evening hours, which work better for me, and that I have a "personality clash" with Dr. "
