Ratings for Dr. Donna McBrien-Sliwowski
Dr. Sliwowski helped me when I needed it most, no other doctor would see me because I was homeless and have a bad insurance, doctor shows she really cares about me and not only treats my mind, but my body too. She taught me about diet and several alternative ways to calm down (lavender oil, etc). I love my doctor.
Some of you might complain about the long wait. The office is busy I agree but the doctor is well worth the wait. I have read 2 of these bad reviews on here and that is not the experience that I get from Dr. Sliwowski. She isn't "cold" like these other people are saying. I think that you get what you give and if you are a friendly open person you will get that experience. If you are an unfriendly person you might have a different experience. I for one can't give a higher recommendation for Dr. Sliwowski. One of the best doctors i've ever seen.
Even when the office is nearly empty, expect to wait well past your appointment time before you get to see the doctor. She has never once seen me at the time I'm scheduled for. She's also very cold, and doesn't listen when I explain how I'm feeling. She's always fiddling with her phone while talking, rarely meeting my eyes. And the worst part is that she spends more time trying to give me unasked for medical advice (that she freely admits she got on the internet!) than dealing with the depression I'm acting seeing her for. I can't recommend the doctor to anyone.
The office was dirty, stuffy, and uninviting. I was not called in until 45 minutes after my appointment time. I was not greeted by the doctor in a friendly manor, only told to sit down while she sorted recyclables in her office. She then asked me if I collect recyclables to redeem for coins. The doctors demeanor was very cold and her attentiveness to me was lacking. She was checking her phone and taking phone calls throughout the appointment. From the conversations I overheard in the waiting room, a good amount of her clients are homeless.
