She destroyed my life! I'm now having to explain that I'm not abusing or addicted to drugs. Which by the way were prescribed by my doctor. She admitted that after 4 days of treatment and no systems of withdrawals that she was wrong about her premature diagnosis.

I started d seeing Dr. Varnado for depression, adult onset ADD I 2006. I stayed his patient until 2010. I never had any problem with his professional treatment or his staff. I moved in 2010, then moved back 2015, I called made and appt. I have more problems now. But; he has listened and discussed the issues I have now and adjusted my meds accordingly. I like him and the female doctor also. I am very glad that he accepted me as a patient. Where I had move there are no psychiatrist available within 150 mile radius.Sincerely, Nancy Holland
I had heard of Varnado Psyc. Services about 5 years ago from a former combat veteran who was less than open with his experiences in Vietnam. Talking his advice I went for a consultation visit. I need to preface this by saying, I had never been to, nor EVER planned on going to one even by force. To sum it up, I never felt uncomfortable or as if they thought I was crazy for one second. I was asked many questions about my mood, sleep, nerves, etcetera and was diagnosed with mild post traumatic disorder and that I was probably ADD since grade school. At the time I went to the assessment I realized, through Dr. Varnado, how really sick I was and within a month of my appointment I no longer had feelings of suicide, night terrors, depression, and stopped feeling as if I was all alone. I highly recommend he and the other healthcare professionals in there office.
This is ABSOLUTELY the best program in the country for treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As a Clinician I found this program to be based on cutting edge research for the cause, effect and treatment of symptoms. The NOI addresses the broad spectrum of PTSD and it's easily misdiagnosed symptoms, such as Depression, Dissociation, Compulsions, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Sexual Disorders, Personality Disorders (Borderline, Anti-Social, Narcissistic, Schizoaffective , etc).As a person diagnosed with PTSD receiving treatment I found this program challenging. It is far more challenging than other programs I have encountered. The payoff is also far greater. Working with a treatment team that has been together for a decade plus, provides continuity of care in a secure environment. I was treated as an individual with individual symptoms vs one treatment for all. I was treated like an adult, given respect and allowed the comforts of home. This is a program for those who take their recovery seriously.
It's a long story but Dr.Varnardo attempted to force me to give my child bi-polar meds ( on top of a couple of other that were having bad side effects ) that thier own head psychaitrist said he did not need. That he was not bi-polar. Because they HAD to have three diagnosis to keep getting paid for a child, and I refused to allow him to lable and medicate my child for something that he did not have, they dropped us. RUDELY & ARROGANTLY! This place is a scam. They pin stuff on a kid to get paid.
