My therapist is great and I have an okay care manager, but their appointment system leads to a lot of cancelled appointments. It's happened to me at least twice in a row now, making me miss one appointment and only get 30 minutes for another appointment. My medication manager Dr. Walker wasnt there during my last appointment, so I had to come in the next day during walk in hours and after waiting and being the last to be seen, all she told me was that we all have problems and maybe my depression isn't improving with medications because I'm not trying to get better, to focus on coping skills and wait longer for the meds to work. I felt talked over a lot and it's hard enough for me to speak for myself because when I get nervous, it's like my throat closes up. The appointment was basically me crying and her telling me that she wasn't going to help me. I've been complaining about my meds for the past month or so and I've been on them for 3 or 4 months. There really needs to be more communication between therapists and the medication manager, because Dr. Walker could be shady about me using marijuana (must've been in my chart) but didn't know why talking to my parents would be counterproductive, which my therapist could've filled her in on. She could've also filled her in on my complaints on my medications. Isabella, Beth and Maureen are great. I can't say much about the rest of the staff. I left my walk in appointment with my medication manager feeling worse than when I walked in, crying and I had to pull over after leaving because I had a panic attack. I'm going to try to put my trust and respect in her because she's the doctor, but I wish that I felt that same trust and respect. I plan on going to my next appointment like normally, but if I still get no help then I plan on looking for another medication manager. Despite my negative experiences with scheduling and with my medication manager, I recommend The Apalachee Center for anyone who is low income and looking for mental healthcare.
