Treated like cattle. Total apathy for patient throughout. Physicians Assistant Greta couldn't have cared less about patients . This is a wait triage center; they'll farm you out to a specialist after the 3-4 wait. Wait, don't announce your dissatisfaction , security officer Colonel Sanders will try to intimidate you. Go anywhere else!

The services that are being given to my son at Center for Emotional and Behavioral Health has been very poor. The unwilling to discuss the reason he is in and the wanting to put him on MEDS and not willing to give him the one on one he has as well as I have requested is very upsetting. As the reason he is there has now happened again to my son inside there care and I have now been blocked from contact due to there mess up of allowing this to happen. I can not reach anyone nor can I even contact my son about what happened to him on 06-14-09.
