staff and doctor have spent too much time dealing with addicts. they have no right treating patients coming for therapy and medication like addicts. worst experience of my life that i a 54 year old woman with depression/add/anxiety would be treated like a junkie staff and doctor are cold uncaring and doctor flat out lied about a new law saying you cant prescribe short acting add meds taken in am with klonopin taken 13 hours later for anxiety when trying to sleep its been 3 months still havent had a real visit with a doctor to talk just urine testing promises of repeat neurological testing for add etc etc can even make another appt until urine test results are back.i feel like i walked into the twilight zone these people need hit the restart button and remember that they are supposed to be providing therapy and med management for people other then addicts.
