My focus in treatment is on helping the patient gain insight into the problem in order to begin to change things. This usually involves psychotherapy and psychoeducation and often requires medication in order to allow people to begin the work of healing. I find that treatment success depends on individualizing care to meet the goals of the patient.

I like the doctor However, supporting staff could use work. Loud when discussing name/personal info with me at desk. Often appear displeased behind the desk. Delays up to a week waiting for refills. Discrepancies regarding receiving requests from my pharmacy. Support staff needs aptitude tests before employment, perhaps?

Dr Phiester is extremely helpful, always listens and takes her time to understand what is going on. I feel like my mental health / medication management is taken care of 100%. Her assistant who takes vitals is also very kind and is always pleasant. The woman who checked me into my appointment is consistently in a poor attitude. Her tone of voice is that of which you are "bothering" her, she's snippy and rude. I do not have her name, but she is the one who checked me in. She has been there for awhile, and sometimes I will wait to go to another receptionist because of her demeanor and tone.
