    Ibia, Dr. Itoro E
    I've had four psychiatrists and two therapists since I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 1999. Dr. Ibia is by orders of magnitude the best psychiatrist I've ever had. She's a psychiatrist, not a therapist, but she talks to me! And she listens! She has told me things about the meds I've been on for 16 years that I never learned in the 12 years I was on them before beginning to work with her - about interactions with OTC drugs and possible long-term side-effects - and she is extremely diligent about monitoring for these effects via asking questions and ordering regular blood tests. 
    Dr. Ibia asks incisive questions about my life to determine whether anything medically significant is going on, while at the same time being warm, supportive, and nonjudgmental. Her stated goal is to keep me in a place where my symptoms are being managed - not just where I'm surviving them - and she strikes what I perceive to be an excellent balance in being willing to "tweak" my meds to deal with changes in my mental health, without reaching for drugs as a solution to everything. She is competent and caring and extremely concerned that I am getting the most helpful care possible. Possibly the best doctor - not just psychiatrist - I've ever had.

    Prosperity Eating Disorders & Wellness
    I was referred  by my primary care doctor to Prosperity because my daughter was having anxiety and had lost a lot of weight. The staff were warm and was suprised to see all that they had to offer. The psychologist we met with did a thourough assessment and determined that she has Anorexia. I couldn't believe I didn't see the sign, but the therapist gave us a lot of information any my daughter was relieved that she would be getting some help. We have also now met with Dr. Weaver and Kate Grefenstette for Nutrition at Prosperity and we feel a lot of hope.

    Gloria Myers
    I have worked with a mental health provider in the district that I would recommend very, very highly. Her name is Gloria Myers-Beller. She is a psychologist and I should say that I have known her since 1997 or 1998. She was in the same practice as my original therapist who died unexpectedly and then I saw Gloria myself. I have already recommended her and I would recommend her to a friend or a family member. I would grade her 'A' plus on availability if I could, she is terrific. I would grade her an 'A' for everything.

    Betty Donskoy MD
    I first started seeing Dr. Donskoy about 10 or 11 years ago for Bipolar Disorder. I was on her waiting list for two months, which told me she must be very good to be in such demand. Dr. Donskoy is wonderful! She is an excellent listener, and is conservative in prescribing medication so you don't take too much or too little medication to control your health problem. She is thorough and detailed in asking the right questions to determine the precise state of your health. Whereas my previous doctor had not listened to my repeated statements about certain medications not working properly for my body chemistry (some med's work on one person but don't work as well on another person), Dr. Donskoy took my feedback seriously, and in just a few months, she had my disorder completely under control, and within a year, even had my disorder IN REMISSION!! And it has remained in remission ever since. Dr. Donskoy never goes longer than two and a half months in between visits with me, and if there is anything challenging that has been or will be going on in life, or if there has been a major change in mood recently, she will ask to see you in one month. This might seem excessive or unnecessary to some folks, but is in fact a good practice when you are trying to keep a mood disorder in check and in remission. The prior doctor who hadn't listened to me, had also only agreed to see me every six months. The more often the doctor sees you, the better they know you and can assess your health, and make the right decision on tweaking your medication. Over the years, I have been able to reduce the amount of medicine I take, and yet achieve the same level of good health. I wish I had found Dr. Donskoy when I was first diagnosed. My life would have been a lot better in the earlier years.

    Inova Kellar Center
    My son attended the outpatient hospitalization program twice.  The improvement was minimal and the focus on just the drug use and not the underlying mental health issues does not address the reason for the drug use.

    Kayloe, Dr. Natalia
    My experience has gone very well. I have been seeing the doctor for about 10-12 years now. She is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable in her field. The office is clean and welcoming. I would highly recommend this doctor to others.

    Morton Plant Neuroscience
    There was a bit of a wait, but it wasn't too long. The actual swallow test was performed so quickly, that I had to check with the nurse to make sure my step-dad completed it. (Because there is a little bit of radioactive material in the food eaten as part of the swallow test, I wasn't allowed to accompany my step-dad into the room where the test was administered.) His swallow function was normal, by the way.
    The thing I like about Morton Plant Memory and Alzheimer's dept, which is part of Neuroscience, is that the administrative staff really bend over backward to help you with all the pre-approvals needed for testing.
    My step-dad has also used their facility, on another occasion, to take a driving exam. It is a special driving exam that determines how long it takes for him to react to driving situations. They can use it to gauge how much his cognition has slowed down, and whether he's able to think and react fast enough to continue driving. He ended up voluntarily no longer driving.
    Morton Plant's Memory Disorders Clinic also offer support groups, which I found very helpful. Here's the info, which I've copied, from their web site. (Unfortunately, this Angie's list rating doesn't allow me to paste a link.)

    Rasheed, Dr. Zafar
    We had our daughter see him for a year.  She loved him.  But when she fell apart, he wasn't there for us.  We see another md now who answers calls.  We don't call often, but when we do, it is important.

    Inova Kellar Center
    Kellar seems to want the 'quick fix'. The partial hospitalization program gives your child two weeks, at which point he or she is either discharged too early, or sent to full hospitalization. They seem to have a 'we know best' attitude and don't want to enter into discussions with the parent or child. There is no questioning their decisions, and they can be pretty harsh about turning patients out of the center on a dime if the patient says something that appears to risk their safety or the safety of others. In hindsight I would recommend seeking individual counseling from a recommended private therapist before going down the institutional road. Like schools, Kellar seems to take the typical institutional response to most problems - quick to escalate in order to cover themselves, rather than taking the long view with the patient's, rather than the Center's, best interest in mind.
    To be fair, our healthcare system doesn't make it easy to provide the best mental health care. Some of Kellar patients would be better off in full hospitalization, but insurance either won't cover it, or won't cover it for as long as is necessary. It feels like a factory. Most people go there because the school's recommend it, and they are pretty much the only game in town when it comes to community mental health. Perhaps if there were more places like this available they wouldn't be stretched so thin.
    This year two of the best therapists there left after a short time in order to return to private practice.

    Mehra, Dr. Rhea N.
    Though I trust her text book knowledge, I am glad I only need her for the purposes of writing me a prescription. I was not seen until 45 minutes past my appointment time, and her waiting room was socially very uncomfortable. The walls are thin and while she was in session with other clients I clearly could hear the conversations coming from the room. One client was shouting and did not seem happy with her treatment at all, which did not instill my confidence in the dr being patient oriented. The dr also seemed very hurried/flustered and was rushing patients in and out of her office. Her bedside manner was pretty non-existent, too.
    By the time she finally saw me, she pointed out that it was already past her quitting time and I got the impression she just wanted to wrap things up and get me out of there as soon as possible. (Never mind that I had waited 45 minutes for her). Even after I gave her my card to pay her, she just threw it across her desk back at me instead of handing it to me, which I found particularly rude.
    I gave her the benefit of the doubt and thought perhaps I had caught her on a bad day. For my follow up visit, I luckily didn't have to wait as long- my appointment started close to on time (within 5-10 minutes). But her manner was still the same-not very polite and condescending at times. Again, I only need her to write a rx for me that I already have had success with, so she fulfills that need for me. Beyond that I am glad I don't need her services for anything else.
