This place is horrible.....Send your family here at your own risk. My mother was here and fell and died one week later. There was people sitting in the big room with bruises all over them....Totally unexplainable by everyone....Other family there told me they fell. There were other people drooling and staggering all over the place with not enough staff to watch them. They were totally ignored by the staff while I was there. It looked like a horror movie.......Please dont send your family member here...........You will regret it.......They hide things from you and cover it up........This was ignored by the administrator.
I've been seeing Dr. Yank for 5 years and he's been a real lifesaver. I've spent many hours in that waiting room without witnessing any unprofessional or unusual behavior by the office staff, and am utterly baffled by negative reviews to the contrary. I certainly haven't ever seen them laugh at patients or "flirt with doctors". I agree that appointments can run behind schedule: mine are usually 30-60 min late. However, this isn't due to "understaffing" - Dr. Yank actually gives a damn about his patients, and is always willing to spend as much time talking to them as they need. I'm surprised people complain about this: he could certainly increase revenue by shuffling people through his office at a faster rate.
I thank Dr. Harold Polin and the staff at Behavioral Healthcare in Columbia, TN, who provided care for my aunt recently. My dear Auntie suffers from dementia and had become so aggitated and uncooperative with the family members helping with her care that we feared we could no longer take care of her at home. That has always been important to our family, to provide loving care in our homes for our older family members. After just a few weeks in the Behavioural Facility, and with some adjustments to her meds, Auntie not only regained her prior pleasant personality, but once again became an active and loving member of our family. Dr. Poling was always so polite and attentive, and the staff were patient and respectful to our aunt while in their care. It also gives us peace in knowing there is a reputable place nearby that can help us in the future, if further care is needed. Sincerely, LBMG
I work for a home care agency in middle Tennessee. We had a client with dementia, who was extremely combative. Our caregiver who would go into her home would not stay on the case very long because she was so extremely difficult. The client was admitted into the Behavioral Healthcare Center and evaluated and treated for 2 weeks. She is now doing excellent and our caregivers are able to care for her without any problems .I would highly reccomend this Healthcare Center1
Tried several therapists for several years at this facility. None utilized methods to include parents of minor or provide strategies to improve family function as requested at outset. Best interface came from medicine administrator. Overall a Disappointing experience.
