Dr. Dobbs has been an outstanding therapist! Her and her staff are always very professional at all times. She will even call you when you leave a message, even during off hours. We have been using her practice for over 2 years and are very happy. If anyone needs a therapist-she is the best around!!!!
I never post reviews but after reading the review above, I felt I had to say something. I am suspecting that this person does not know this doctor very well. I was a patient for two years until I moved to Louisiana and I have yet to find another doctor as qualified and passionate about her work. I agree that the 24 hour notice is annoying, but if you do not leave a message or give some kind of notice, the practitioners cannot fill the hour that they would have spent helping you and cannot charge for that time. I had to cancel at least five appointments with her and most of the times I called within 12 or even 8 hours, and they understood my circumstances and never charged me. I also left messages on her answering machine, so I know they have one, if you really want to leave a message.
This doctor requires a 24 advanced notice for cancellations. Odds are when you call for an appointment or for a cancellation you will be put on hold. There is also a very good chance you will be put on hold for a lengthy bit of time! If you have the kind of job that requires you not to carry a phone with you or you have very limited time to use a phone make sure when canceling with this doctor that you hold on as long as you can. This doctor will CHARGE you no matter what! Seems the almighty dollar is more important than the patient. Do your self a favor and find a doctor who puts there patients first there has to be some left. :(
Hi Sean. I am sorry that you are unhappy with our 24 hour cancellation policy, and I would have loved to help you with your issues. I do feel like I need a cancellation policy because, even if it does not happen often, when somebody does not show up, I cannot fill the time with another patient who may need my help, and I do not get paid for that time. I'm sorry that you feel that I am all about "the money", but I assure you that I am not. We did not have the oppotunity to get to know each other because I just met you once. You also changed your initial appointments on many occasions and we always tried to accomodate your schedule. I think I speak for almost every mental health clinician when I say that this is a vocation and a calling, as we are not wealthy people. However, we do need to get paid in order to put food on our table and pay our bills. Next time and with the next clinician, please just leave a message to let them know so that they can use their time to help somebody else and have more consideration. Remember, unlike you, they do not get paid if the patient does not show. Hanging up and not leaving a message is the same as not showing up without notice. I wish you the very best!
