Ratings for Dr. Katerina Riabova
I have trusted Dr. Riabova with the care of my son who has a combination of PDD, bipolar disorder and ADHD. Dr. Riabova cares about her patients, and considers the parent the expert on their child's symptoms and behaviors. She is thoughtful in her approach to medication and will tell you the limits when adjusting medications or trying new ones. She is most easily reached by email and has been very responsive. She doesn't require you to make an appointment for every little change or adjustment. She is often late with her appointments, because she takes time to listen to her patients when it is most needed. This can be frustrating for some, but we have adjusted our expectations to accommodate it. She can be difficult to understand, but with patience the difficulty can be overcome. She may be quirky, but she is a good doctor.
Not only is Katerina extremely late, she likes to blame her patients for it. I cannot believe she even has a license to be a doctor. Maybe things are done differently in Russia. I found her to be unhelpful and actually quite destructive. She actually told me and this is her words "everyone has ADD so you need to take Ritalin". Granted I am 55 and have been seeing many psychiatrists over the years - none of them have ever diagnosed me with ADD. I think she is quite reckless. - Paul
Very, very, very late. If you have a couple of hours to kill, then you might actually get to see Dr. Riabova. Besides that, there are papers falling out of every crevice of her office. I kid you not. There are so many HIPAA violations going on in this office, I would hate to be one of her ongoing patients. I left screaming myself. While I'm in her office, she tries to print out something for me, but piles of folders fall on top of the printer, which jams. She spends the next 15 minutes trying to get it to work, wasting my time. Good grief! Did this person get her license out of a cracker jack box or what!?!?
This woman is ALWAYS late and I don't mean 15 minutes, I mean an 45 minutes to an hour late every time. She dresses like a 3 year old. I tried to keep an open mind after seeing her, but the things that came out of her mouth reflected her appearance - stupid. Beyond that, she is dangerous - she prescribed medications for illnesses I do not have (proven by other legitimate doctors). She can cause so much damage that you should definitely find someone else before it's too late.
