Ratings for Dr. Kent K. Bratten
I visited this dr for depression. Dr. Bratten started me on antidepressants until my appointment with a psychiatrist which was in a month (I also had a mental health therapist.) When my symptoms didn't improve, he hospitalized me instead of contacting my therapist (who was right upstairs - the entire mental health staff is avail for emergencies during office hrs.) He didn't read me my patient rights so I didn't know what was going on. Also, when you "commit" someone, you are supposed to be escorted to the hospital, which didn't happen. When I got to the hospital I learned that he had not followed procedure. My therapist was surprised that Dr. Bratten didn't contact him because although my depression had worsened, it didn't require such extensive measures -- which cost me $3000. I filed a complaint but because it wasn't technically malpractice, a citation wasn't issued. I wouldn't recommend this dr if you're female. I think he's fine if you have an easily treatable ailment.
