Ratings for Dr. Nina Kandel
nina is a horrable therapist she asked the same questions over and over again and she forgets a lot also she sent me a paper for copays i have two ins coverage , she did not bill my ins co so there is no explination of benefits i left several messages never return my callls
I am in agreements with the previous reviews. On at least two occasions, Nina dozed during my sessions. In addition, she answers phone calls during the session visits, and her personal landscaper would be mowing the lawn during the sessions , both of which I think is very unprofessional. I could overlook such unprofessionalism if the quality of counseling was there, but it was not. She can be demeaning, and she is more interested in her own success as an drug and alcohol counselor than in the well-being and progress of her patients. As the others have mentioned, she is disengaged during the visits, simply staring and not asking questions or giving feedback to what is being shared. I absolutely would not recommend her, even if she is covered by your insurance.
I wish I had read the previous review before spending money her. She just stared at me even when I was done talking so I would talk more to avoid those awkward silences but then one day she gave me advice that I didn’t like so I was “when you said ____ it really hurt me” to which she replied by getting offended and upset and saying things like “you never like to listen anyways.” She was saying that all I did was talk as if I didn’t want to hear what she said. Did I already mention that she would literally just stare at me AFTER I would finish talking. A lot of times I’d just be there like “yeah...that’s it...yep... that’s life” to stop the uncomfortableness of her just staring. Seeing a different doctor is the best thing I could have ever done for myself. I knew he (my new therapist) was the one when he told me that if he ever says something that upsets him just say “hey. It really hurt me when you said this.” That was the exact phrase I had said to Nina that showed me that she was a terrible doctor. I honestly felt worse going to her but kept going bc at the time I felt like life would never get better anyways and she made sure to keep me thinking that way.
She fell asleep during session.... Add to that a complete inability to guide a conversation. The short 35-40 minutes is filled with awkward silence infrequently inturupted by assanine and overtly obvious observations. Terrible advise that if followed would have caused more damage. I would not waste money, time, energy on her
