"I went to their office and filled out their paperwork and was told I would be called to set up an appointment. I said that I was stable on medication and only required" medication management at this time but would also like to start therapy. I said I did not even need an appointment with the Dr. until next month as I have refills but did want to start therapy soon. After not hearing back from them and making several phone calls asking to speak to the new patient coordinator and being put off, today, over a week since I filled the paperwork out, I finally got an answer, not from the coordinator but from someone at the from desk that told me that due to the fact that I had had several hospitalizations they could not help me. So I guess I am left with the conclusion that even with Dr. Waldrops many years of experience and high ratings on the internet he is only willing to help those who will not be too much trouble. that if there is the possiblity that somewhere down the line you really need further help that might require hospitalization, well then he can't or will not help you. How can this place possibly have an "A" rating?

"I've seen this doctor for a year. When I had to see him urgently, they got me in right away and I didn't have more than a half-hour wait. Other than" that time, I've had to wait between 1 and 2.5 hours (!) at every scheduled appointment - this for a 5 minute "you're ok? Here's your prescription" vist. They're friendly and warm, but very unprofessional and haphazard (it's a family-run business, and it shows). Yes, he can be delayed by hospital emergencies, but they've never bothered to modify their routine - I guess it works fine for them, but that leaves their patients to shoulder this
. don't say you weren't warned!!

I saw Dr.
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
. It took almost 2 months to get the appointment just for medication management for depression and anxiety. Luckily I was in pretty good shape when I saw her because otherwise I would not have been able to understand or follow her much. Upon greeting me for the first time, she opened the door, called my name, starred at the floor, and never once made eye contact. In her office taking a history as fast as she possibly could, speaking very fast I got the feeling she was very much in a hurry to just get through her job, write me any scripts needed (which I did not at that time as I still had refills) and be done with me. There was no feeling of caring or compassion there or that she even liked her job. She threw so much information at me at the end so quickly that I left confused but with the name of a therapist,

, to make an appointment, which I did. I saw her once and liked her but am now in receipt of a letter from Dominion that she is no longer with them with no explanation. Also, when I attempted to call and just leave Dr.
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
a voicemail messege the front desk said their providers did not have that and they did not take messeges as they where not secretaries. They said to make any contact I had to come in and pay another visit or go to the ER if it was an emergency. So If you want to pay good money to feel like you are at a free clinic where you might expect to be treated rudely and just like a number go here.

There was a wonderful social worker we saw twice, she then turned my son's case over to an MD. The Dr. started to give our son all kinds of prescription medications, Xanax and Klonopin when warned by us in family meetings he had stolen medication locked up within the home. We asked him NOT to medicate him with benzo's but he did anyway. He knew our son was experimenting with drugs and against our family meeting advice he kept giving our son higher and higher doses for "panic attacks" our son did NOT have. Family meeting after family meeting we told the Dr. that our son was attempting to abuse the prescribed medications, he only gave him more and more then added an ADD medication. Our son had been tested 4x for ADD and came up negative EVERY time. This MD (male) gave our son continued different ADD medications until he tried Statera and our son had a severe reaction he didn't warn us of. His blood pressure went to 190/122 when he normally had athletic blood pressure of 90/60. <br abp="1034">
<br abp="1035">
After a few years of this we ended contact with the
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
Dr.'s and staff. We always had to wait a long time for appointments, the he shorted our 1/2 family 1/2 individual with our son who walked out with a grin on his face with prescriptions every time! The Dr. was a true pill pusher!<br abp="1037">
<br abp="1038">
This Dr. at
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
contributed to the drug use of our son. I weaned him off the Klonopin slowly but our son went looking for it on the streets basically. He liked what the Dr. gave him in his mid to upper teens. Today our son is an addict, currently in his 12th rehab in California having seizures from detoxing from benzos and other drugs. I partially blame this Dr.'s insistence of prescribing narcotic benzo's to our son for what ultimately happened. I called him and told him we would NEVER return and thanked him for contributing to our son's now addictive personality. We brought him there to prevent this when he tried marijuana, we never expected our narcotics to be prescribed. For the prices they charged we could have taken our son to ANY private group. I did write a letter to the Board of Directors without a reply. <br abp="1043">
I recommend you go to a private psychiatrist rather than one at
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
, there is NO difference in cost! They overbilled us, then we had to wait for refunds. We're covered for 80 percent until $1000 out of pocket then go to 100 percent for the year. They continued taking the full amount, collecting the 20 percent back from insurance and it took over a year to get what we were owed. Not the best place in our humble opinion for teenagers with or without family therapy.

The first time I went the epidural treatment helped alleviate some of the constant pain that I had. The next grouping I just received is seeming to make things a bit more comfortable considering that you use your back the most during the day. I have 1 more treatment to go and see what happens from there. Dr.

will be taking care of me on a regular basis so I can keep my back in check.

The meeting with her is sometimes very short. You won't be there very long. You sometimes have to wait a real long time to get into her office. If you're scheduled at 1:00, you might not be in there until 1:30, 1:45. I'll continue using her for now, but she could do better.

Never see the doctor, only the nurse. You pay the same as you would a doctor. Put on prozac, which doesn't seem to be the type of drug you would prescribe for someone that has had addition problems. Will not write RX with refills. Forces you to come in each month and incur an office visit fee to get a refill. A person's medical problem should not be a monthly income stream if the treatment isn't changing.

He's extremely knowledgeable and very wise. He's extremely up-to-date on medications and their sides on mental health issues and also on their effects on each other. He very much supports the whole health mentality. We're very much pleased. The healthier person is a healthier person. We always make arrangements and he's always responsible about it.

Can not stress enough to AVOID THIS DR. LIKE THE PLAGUE! Was told on first visit medicine prescribed (which FDA issued a “black-box” label warning) had no side effects!! Pill Pusher, does not accept any insurance - CASH ONLY!

I have been treating with Dr.
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
for over a decade. He is thorough, kind and attentive. He fully evaluated my conditions and offered treatment options. He will not simply offer "a pill and a bill" ...so, if that is what you are looking for, you should look elsewhere. He looks at the whole patient. When medication is necessary, he monitors how it works, including lab work if needed to avoid complications and to maximize result. As your condition, situation or medical status changes, he works to revise your treatment plan. At each step, he made certain I was in agreement and actively involved in treatment decisions. Maintaining mental health is an ongoing process, and for it to work, it requires the patient to honestly participate and work with the doctor. You get what you put in. He listens, he cares, and then he acts--- in that order. As a result, I trust him unconditionally and recommend him without reservation.
