"Never spent more than 15 minutes per session, More into writing scripts than listening Immediately placed on
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
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.

Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
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.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
said that to properly come off the drug I would need to be weaned off. However, Dr.
Lehighton 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.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
left me hanging. There is a correct way and a wrong way to do things. I feel Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
took the absolute wrong way to handle this situation. Two wrongs certainly don't make a right.

I was very impressed with Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
. She is very soft spoken, thorough, and quite perceptive. I found her compassionate and knowledgeable about meds and also nutrition in relation to depression. I felt very confident in her competency in all pertinent areas. I am relieved to find a dr. who is truly focused on her patients.

I came in expecting nothing from him and within a month he proved that he was willing to consider all
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
and within a year he had me on the right medication. He is very good at cleaning up messes that other psychiatrist have caused. He is very professional, always listens, and never judges when he is speaking with you. The appointments are normally 15 to 20 minutes.

The new patient paperwork listed his hourly rate as $250 per hour. He charged me $300 for an hour. Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
was 20 minutes late and did not apologize for wasting my time. He spent 50 of those 60 minutes talking about himself, his personal life and how fat I am. He told me to stay away from buffets. At the end of the hour he wrote me a script. When I presented the script to the pharmacist, I found out that my insurance required a prior authorization, and so Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
demanded even more money to do that work, and admonished me for not taking care of this administrative duty while I was with him during the first hour. He is arrogant and completely disrespectful, offering unwanted weight loss advice, which is outside of the scope of his license and none of his business. Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
must weigh more than 200 pounds himself. Avoid people like him.

For the emotional ties that are associated with having someone go thru detox, the staff and facility is very good. The facility is clean and very open. The staff is friendly and are good at keeping the family members informed of the patient progress.

She helps me manage my meds for depression, because I also take a lot of other medications for other things. She lets you talk and listens to you. It's easy to get in. Anytime you need an appointment, they'll have someone there. You can get in pretty quick, and everybody is really helpful.

There was some confusion regarding the her type of practice scope. The first call was not returned. On 12/9/14 the confusion was resolved and my doctors office called to make appointment, with me present. Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
staff was reached and the phone and fax information was verified. Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
office wanted to review the referral before contacting me to make an appointment. All of my information was given over the phone. A referral was faxed. I received a copy of the referral which had Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
information so I could follow up on the appointment. I also verified that all my contact information was correct on the referral.
On 12/12/14 I left a message on voicemail for new patient appointment. On 12/16/14 I called and spoke to temp who relayed the information the yes the office was open and had been open regular hours but
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
was out today. Who
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
was I have no idea. The temp would not take a message and suggested I call back the next day when
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
would be back. I called 12/17/14 6 times never reached an actual person and finally left one message requesting a new patient appointment.
On 12/19/14 contacted my primary physician and requested referral for the other doctor listed on my insurance. They called Dr.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
office and left a message. On 12/23/14 my primary care physician informed me they made a new referral with a different doctor for January.
I CAN NOT BELIEVE I NEVER RECEIVED ANY TYPE OF COMMUNICATION FROM DR.
Lehighton Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
OFFICE! At the very least the office should have contacted me and referred me to another physician. If the doctor doesn't even bother to return calls to another physician can you really trust her to respond to a patient's needs?

I was unable to schedule an appointment with Dr.

because they did not accept Tricare so if you are a Veteran/spouse or military member seek other providers on Angie's list that are willing to accept Tricare.
