  • Anne Yount ★★★★★ 3 weeks ago

    I would give them zero stars if I could. Stay away at all costs! We brought our daughter there when she was suffering from exhaustion due to an illness. She was also having suicidal thoughts after reading the book "Thirteen Reasons". She was unable to sleep for more than a few hours at a time, and she was in a bad place. After a 15 minute consult the psychiatrist (who we later learned was a second year resident) wanted to label her as manic, bi-polar and a whole host of other things, and to put her on a bunch of medications. We refused, and asked if they could just give her a sedative to help her sleep. They reluctantly did so, and she was much better the next day. Then I (mom) went to meet with them yesterday when my husband was at work, and they called DCF and reported us as neglectful parents because we did not bring her in sooner. We are not mental health professions, and she never told us directly she wanted to kill herself, it took a few weeks for us to understand what was going on with her physical and mental health, and we were in contact with medical professionals throughout this process. Now we have the state investigating us for abuse. They have now changed the diagnosis to ADHD and autism spectrum disorder (based on the fact that our daughter did not look a clinician in the eye). She has no trouble looking people in the eyes when she is in her normal state. She has been there for less than 72 hours, and it has been a nightmare for us. While we are leery of posting this must personal information online, we feel the need to warn other parents about what is going on at this place. The social worker was also a witch, very cold, and not helpful at all. Her treatment plan consisted of e-mailing us a bunch of links to programs for counseling support after our daughter is discharged, and basically telling us to figure it out on our own. This has been a grueling ordeal, and a massive waste of money. With our deductible, we will be out over $5,500 for this mess, and they have done very little to help!

    r this place was wack the food was terrible and i refused to eat while inpatient just because i was a picky eater so they diagnosed me with an eating disorder and tried to send me to an ED place when i did not have one, they told me i wouldnt of been there for more than ten days and i ended up staying for two weeks and then got sent to another hospital for two more weeks. they treated us very child-like and didnt even let us talk about our mental health issues with other kids and kept us very restricted and gave us no coping skills to use to further our treatment, the "lessons" they held were usually just drawing and stuff. i got out of there nearly a year ago and i still have nightmares. one of the nurses was SO disrespectful and told another patient that they were lying about hearing voices and that anxiety wasnt real and yelled at them when they had a panic attack and she also ripped down a lot of the art we hung on the wall. they also didn't have much control over the kids. there was this one person who would walk into other people's rooms (which wasnt allowed) and steal from the other kids. other kids would stand outside the shower doors while someone was using it and just.... knock on the door for no reason. another kid used to just flicker the lights and scream at both the staff and other patients and throw stuff around and they did NOTHING. one time a kid said they were feeling terrible and wanted someone to check up with them through the night, and when the staff didn't do that they ended up trashing their room and cutting themselves. they didn't let us call our parents on the phone sometimes which was very stressful. it just wasn't a positive experience and did nothing to help with my mental health. honestly, do your kid a favor and don't send them here.

    While the care was good for my child when he was there for a procedure. I am quite displeased over the whole billing process. I get a bill 8 months after the procedure is done for anesthesia, I tried to find a way to pay online but there's nothing set up for that.. So I call to make a payment to the billing office over the phone, they don't take credit cards. What century are we in?!

  • Sivan Lahav ★★★★★ 10 months ago

    Worst Medical Institute Ever. only reason we were willing to deal with their joke for a billing departments, subpar service and outdates equipment is because we and our kids loved our physician. They recently made a reorganization and let some people go - so we've let them go.
