    Donald R. Holben & Associates
    Mr. Andrew A. Rosenberry is with Donald R. Holben Associates, 5030 Camino De La Siesta, Suite
    350, San Diego, CA 92108. 
    Mr. Holben assigned him to represent me in my age discrimination case.
    According to Rule 3-110 of The State Bar of California, if the attorney does not have sufficient learning and skill when the
    legal service is provided, he/she is required to do the research to acquire sufficient learning and skill before performance is undertaken.   Mr. A. A. Rosenberry violated this rule: He first filed a lawsuit and charged me over $15,000. Then for over $800.- he did the research leading him to learn and understand, that the lawsuit he filed was potentially malicious and had to be
    dropped.  Obviously enough he knew full well, that if he had done the research first, he could have charged me over
    $15,000 less.
    As per Rule 3-500 of The State Bar of California the attorney shall keep a client promptly and reasonably informed about significant developments relating to the case.  On February 24, 2014 Mr. Rosenberry was already fully aware of the schedule of the mediation ordered by the Court.  He gave me a mere 65 min. notice over the telephone on Apr. 9, 2014, on the day of mediation.  In the San Diego rush hour I barely managed to arrive on time to the mediation, and needless to say, completely unprepared.  As he yanked me out of my workplace, I showed up looking like the proverbial ?mad scientist?. During the mediation it also became obvious, that he, too, came totally unprepared, and I would have been better off without him present.  He nevertheless charged me the full amount of over $4000.- for his ?services?.
    According to Rule 3-510 of The State Bar of California, the attorney shall promptly communicate to his/her client any written offer of settlement made by the opposing counsel.  Mr. A. A. Rosenberry received a written offer of settlement from the opposing lawyer on April 14, 2014.  Instead of promptly communicating the offer to me, he engaged in a lengthy, expensive, meaningless and leading to nowhere negotiation with the opposing lawyer that cost me several thousand dollars.  After fleecing my Retainer Account for a month, he finally did present the offer to me on May 14, 2014.
    All of the above has happened with Mr. Donald R. Holben?s knowledge and approval.  With this kind of ?legal representation? I
    had no choice but to agree to a very unfavorable settlement to avoid a financial disaster.

    I dislike him.  I don’t like anything about him and his office.  He is the rudest and most condescending doctor I have been to.  I have only seen him once.  He was pretty late.

    Leanne Burnett MD
    I looked around for a neurologist for a long time. I wanted someone I could relate to and feel comfortable with. I tried several before I got to her. She has a specialty in Parkinson's. She really makes notes about what you say. She also reads her notes before she she comes in to see you. She gives you plenty of her time so you never feel rushed. She is one of the best doctors I've used. She's a young old fashioned doctor which I really like.

    Lovejoy, Dr. Cindy
    D.r Lovejoy is a Spiritual Psychologist. We share the belief that science, psychology and spirituality are all coming together for good. I have found her to be helpful, unique in her approach, able to help me go fast to deep places and feel much better to have someone to talk to that has "done her own work".

    McManus, Dr. Michael E.
    In the prior two visits I found Mr. Mcmanus to be generally unhelpful and certainly not a man of many words.  The office was going through a computer revamping change, they were moving to electronic charting and I thought this was the reason.
    In this third visit there was little change, Mr. Mcmanus showed little interest in following the flow of conversation, he was smug and very unhelpful, uninformative and not engaged at all.  He stared at my feet and said very little.  Finally, I called him on his behavior, "Mr. Mcmanus" my eyes are up here in my head, Why are you staring at my feet?"  When communicating with Dr. Mcmanus; my primary language is English, my husband and I work in the medical field, my questions were clear, easy to understand and the problem is simple not complicated. In addition to being unhelpful he had a bad attitude and was rude.  He mocked me when I finally asked him why he was staring at my feet and told him I was going to take my son and insurance and go somewhere else.
    Mr. Michael E. Mcmanus does have a very impressive bio, and is the  director of Quality Assurance.  Too bad he is not interested or willing or capable of relating on a one to one basis with patients  and family in a direct patient care office environment!  I think he should stick to academics... away from patient care.  He should be ashamed of himself for taking my insurance payments and in return being so unhelpful.

    Psychiatric Centers San Diego
    Sorry to say this is my 2nd child psych who was just too weird to cont. forward with.  Now I will need to find yet another Dr. who accepts my insurance.  This was my third visit to Dr. Mcmanus and during the drive to the office I reviewed the reason for the visit with my son and we discussed how it would go.  We planned our approach generally, because I found him to be vague and smug and a man of very few words with the last two visits.  On this particular visit, Dr. Michael E. Mcmanus sat expressionless or confused in his chair while I very clearly and deliberately revisited the last several months of the summer.  My story was simple and easy to understand, my sons issues were mild and not complicated, my questions were direct, brief, easy to follow and straightforward.  My primary language is English.  My husband and I are both in the medical field.  Mr. Mcmanus couldn't seem to follow the conversation flow or didn't agree with it?... He was not informative or helpful, he didn't answer my questions, in fact he said very little.  He was not engaged in my one sided conversation at all.  Mr. Mcmanus seemed slightly unbalanced when I said, " I just explained that very question to you"!?   When he noticed my irritation growing with this strange and unusual conversation (I had furrowed brows) he started to stare at my feet?  He talked and continued staring at my feet...?  I felt completely baffled.  What he did manage to say while staring at my feet convinced me that he had no intention of helping me or my son, or answer any of my questions.  At this point I called him on his behavior. " Mr. Mcmanus... Why are you staring at my feet, my eyes are up here in my head"!!!???  I pointed to my eyes, I told him he was not helpful and appeared not interested in helping me or my son and that he wasn't answering any of my questions.  I told Mr. Mcmanus that we would be taking my son to a different doctor.  I did slap my leg as I said this out of emphasis and frustration.  At this point it was obvious the visit was prematurely over and we were about to leave, my son was up and out the door and waiting room quickly.  Mr. Mcmanus at this point smiled and slapped his leg, too.  He said "Well you just do that"  WOW!!!  That was over the top... too funny!  A supposedly highly educated doctor of psychiatry?  I stood up stunned, to leave his office, I had enough.  I repeated that my eyes were in my head not my feet.  Mr. Mcmanus parting words were "don't be rude".  In my opinion he was the one being rude!  I was just telling him something he didn't want to hear.

    I went home and thought it over... I was thinking he would call me to apologize for the strange visit, maybe explain his rude behavior.  No such apology was forthcoming.



    I will report his behavior to his review committee and my insurance company.



    I did read his bio off the internet and he is quite accomplished.  Maybe he's in awe of himself and too big for his britches.  Maybe he should stick to academics where he doesn't have to bother with questions or people he doesn't like.  If he is going to practice in an office and see patients and take their insurance money for the visit then in turn he must be professional, helpful, informative.  I want someone who's not afraid to say their professional opinion even if he thinks it's not what the "mom" wants to hear.



    I would love for Mr. Mcmanus to read this review!  One human being to another, I hope he at least has answers for himself.

    Ho, Dr. Gilbert J.
    I am sure Dr Ho is at the top of his field knowledge wise. He is very nice but  is always late and doesn't return phone calls. His office staff is the worse I have seen or can even imagine working in a medical office. The answer maching goes to message when they are supposed to be there and then they do not return calls. I probabaly would recommend Dr Ho if he got rid of his front office girls.

    Brettell, Dr. Patti J.
    She is a very good doctor. She is courteous, is kind, and cares about all her patients. She is a very caring doctor. They don't just see you and give you medication, she actually looks into it before she gives you medication. I would recommend her.

    Hubbard, Dr. Bruce
    He's very knowledgeable about the medical side of psychiatry. He was very attentive and making sure my medications were correct. When I had issues with medications, he was very important in wanting to see me back within a certain time frame. The receptionist dealt with my insurance company and the new pharmacy that I chose. She kept in great communication with me along the way.

    Kimberly Sandstrom, Marriage&Family Therapist Int
    She is professional. There's no difficulty in making appointments.  She doesn't appear to have an actual office in this space; we meet in a kid's playroom.  Her communication is excellent.  There is noticeable improvement.  She flexed quite a bit to make arrangements for payment.
