"She has an icy personality. She told me "she couldn't work miracles" and to "be patient" while I had to get off all my meds to start over." She lost my
test results I had taken a month earlier. She read results of a brain scan with the data of CNS response and it seemed that she had no idea what medication to recommend. She was clueless when it came to specific questions I had about other medications I am on such as birth control. I'd grade her lower than an F if it was possible.

"! They have more conveniences such as a full -time front desk staff and a large, posh offices than most, but then their overhead is high and this is passed on to" the client.. What they do not disclose is that your psychologist maybe a part-time "moonlighting" psychologists who have day job elsewhere. and this becomes problematic when they promise to work with a client at their place of business or with school staff during he school day (they can not be two places at once. If you have a child, who benefits from school staff consultations with a psychologist, I would look elsewhere since as in our case the
child expert did not have the time to commit to the therapy on-site service she offered and did not fulfill her visitation schedules. In our case, the doctor always had a excuse as to why she could not meet her pre-set scheduling obligations (for five months and 16 promises of set times/dates of on -site meetings with school staff, she only managed to go to 1 and did not provide the consultation advice she promised to the school staff). . After five months , when we discovered she has another day job (from a receptionist), an hour and half from our area, and she changed her schedule availability but did not inform us,, we decided to leave the psychology side of the practice. On the whole , in our case , we were promised many services that were not delivered,… and this was stressful! We found that they offered nothing more than standard talk therapy for children (not the, labor intensive and strategy driven CBT,or expected play or art therapy that was promise) , We believe the psychological services in the long run can be achieved at a much lower fee with much better results at other area practices. it is a beautiful office, in a beautiful area but again, on our case they do not deliver what they promise and it is exhausting getting them to and rescheduling is commonplace . That said, the medical staff (psychiatrists) are fantastic, so if you need this service, without needing psychological services, use the
,The only caution we would offer is the psychiatric fees are higher than the norm so you may be paying more out of pocket when submitting insurance reimbursement for fees.

Over the phone, we were told they don't take insurance but will give us the paperwork for us to bill directly. We were quoted $175 for initial visit, which only included a sit down with the doc. She was polite, professional, and friendly. Immediately said our kiddo needed medicine and just plain counseling wasn't her forte. She gave us a prescription for

/Anxiety- apparently every kid needs some. An hour later and upon checkout we got a demand for payment of $500 immediately. Nope, wouldn't recommend her at all.

After more than two hours, I asked how much longer it would be to see a doctor and was told "it's going to be a while". I mentioned how I had already been waiting more than two hours and was told "well, it's gonna be a few more hours". I couldn't believe it! I got there around midnight, and they were telling me I would have to wait until about 5:00 or 6:00 AM to see a doctor. | |I thought it was extremely inconsiderate to have people waiting that long and after wasting three (3) hours in the waiting room, I got up and left. | |Incredibly, a month later I got a bill for $256.00 SIMPLY FOR REGISTERING to see a doctor! I never saw a doctor, not even a nurse and still, they charged me $256.00 - ridiculous!

is simply stated, one of the most outstanding medical personnel -- highly trained and experienced psychiatrist -- I have ever had the privilege to work with over my 40 years of professional experience. He is very considerate, patient, a great listener and of course these are all the things you would expect from a person in his profession, but he does it better than the rest!

I called to see if Dr.

was taking new patients (he received an A grade on Angie's List) and was told "I don't know you need to speak to our intake person, she comes in around 10. Would you like to leave a voice mail?" I left a detailed voice mail and my phone number 4 days ago and never got a call back. They couldn't care less.

Poorly, it went poorly. After declining making an appointment as a cash patient without a referral, I had a referral sent by primary care where I was told otherwise and that cash wasn't acceptable either. I have never heard of a psychiatrist requiring a referral, or insurance but this office requires both and that that insurance must be of those accepted or else none at all (and, if otherwise insured that insurance must therefore be cancelled or lapsed).

Never spent more than 15 minutes per session,
More into writing scripts than listening
Immediately placed on
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
dosage of Effexor, which did nothing but make me feel worse.
I eventually left after being told I would be on Effexor for life after asking to try something else.
Also, the billing department kept inaccurate records. I refused to pay a $25 fee for missing
an appointment even though I had given 24 hours notice. I could easily afford the $25, but
it was a matter of principle to me. They even threatened to "ruin my credit rating".
If you just want a little small talk and a script, she's your lady. But if you are really
looking for help with a real issue from a caring doctor, my advice is to look elsewhere.

.I
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
the following to be essential facts about her practice:
• Her specialty is children’s psychiatry. Her office walls are covered with children’s art; crayons and markers abound; and toys may sometimes be seen.
• She has had a lengthy and successful history at KP. This is both important and rare. I believe that Behavioral Medicine has suffered from a rather high turnover rate. If you want someone who will be there for you today, next year, and five years from now, she should be on your short list.
• Although English is her second language, she is totally fluent, and understands the culture and customs of our community.
• She considers the “whole patient”. In my case, that means paying attention to sleep apnea, diabetes, and degenerative disc disease. She enjoys a superior reputation among KP staff and she has engendered supportive relationships with my PCP (primary care physician) and other specialists.
• I have enjoyed amazingly swift responses to e-mail questions and concerns (sometimes here hours). This is very important, because scheduling a routine visit usually requires waiting for weeks. She is heavily booked. Nevertheless, when I have a consult with her I have never felt that she was rushing me—I had her total and compassionate attention. That’s a big deal.
• Despite the pace of her practice, she is an attentive listener, with whom a caring and supportive doctor-patient relationship is readily established.
• She knows how to “work the system” with regard to treatment alternatives, especially with regard to psychotropic medications (“the meds”). She explains alternatives, we discuss benefits and challenges, and we agree upon a course of therapy—which can readily be altered by e-mail based upon my practical response to the same.
• If you are seeking: (a) competency; (b) compassion; and (c) longevity, I recommend Dr. Sahami without any reservations.

had me on a drug for 12 years and now he says I need to get off the drug. I understand it is my fault I need to come off the drug because I did not take it as prescribed. Dr.
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
said that to properly come off the drug I would need to be weaned off. However, Dr.
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
has only given enough of a prescription for one week and told me to figure out the rest. So essentially I have to immediately find another medical professional to help me properly wean off the drug or I will become tremendously sick. I won’t die but there is no way I can tell my employer that I need to suddenly take two weeks off of work to go through withdrawal. In effect, Dr.

left me hanging. There is a correct way and a wrong way to do things. I feel Dr.
Altadena Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
took the absolute wrong way to handle this situation. Two wrongs certainly don't make a right.
