Ratings for Dr. Barbara Ann Yu Saio
I have never left a negative review - but when it comes to our children's mental health it's important for me to share with other parents that I am disgusted. :( Yu Saio barely acknowledged my daughter in the room during our 2nd appointment (she did not speak to her directly and was rushed and snappy with me), and at the end of our time when she told us when our next appointment would be she asked if I had seen the cancelation policy. I asked what would happen if my daughter is sick, the response was she didn't need to be there for the appointment, and I didn't need to be either. I could send in an aunt or neighbour with notes and that would be sufficient. What?! I have since been TRYING to cancel the next appointment, but you CANNOT leave messaged on their machine and they have not replied to 2 emails sent over the last 3 weeks to attempt to cancel it.
The time to get an appointment didn't take that long. However waiting in the waiting room for an hour when you arrive 10 minutes before your appointment she didn't seem to be apologetic. Her excuse was do you wait to see other doctors. She was behind schedule and and I was told that a patient went in ten minutes before my scheduled appointment. What is the point of making an appointment if you can't honer the scheduled appointments. I fine that's not being respectful of people's time, they too have a life and have come on time.
Just had to cancel an appointment because I can not get my son there, due to a migraine and they are going to charge me $60. Are you in this business to help people or make money,very disappointing. Iwill not be rescheduling due to the fact that I get migraines and can't predict them and cannot always make appointments.
I am not one to ever leave a negative comment but since she is dealing with children and families suffering from serious issues I feel the need to write this. She would not meet with my husband and I initially before meeting with our child even though I had specifically requested this. Every other Doctor we have met always spoke to the us and then together as a family. I do not think any child should be subjected to listening to a parent telling a new Dr. all of their "issues" in front of them. I left the office and tears and refused to ever see her again.
Every time I've been in to see her I've waited at least 45 minutes after out scheduled time. She seems to take things lightly and just adds more medications. She seems to not take the time of day to understand what's really going on. She is not personable at all and at times very difficult to talk to. Currently looking for a new doctor.
