Ratings for Dr. Wendy Graham
When I was 17 I attempted suicide and was brought to her office for medical intervention. She put me in her office with a sheet of paper that had questions I could rate from 1-10. The questions were worded like this "Does the patient exhibit..." it was clear that she was supposed to be asking me the questions and interpreting my answers. The back of the paper stated how many points I would have to get to be medicated, or to be institutionalized. I didn't want to feel like dying anymore, I wanted to get better, so I filled it out to get enough points to be medicated. She put me on Paxil and my life as I know it was ruined. I felt great, I was happier than I had ever been and always on go. We had one check up about a month later and she said "you're wearing short sleeves, so I'm happy" referring to my cutting(which I had stopped). I never had another check up with her... I ended up hurting someone in a manic craze. I have never known why I did it. Only after being sent for re evaluation did I find out that I was in a Paxil induced manic state. I also found out that for this reason, and the increased risk of suicide, SSRI's are not meant to be prescribed to adolescence without close supervision. Similarly, another family member had anorexia. She was about 12 and thin as a stick, when she had previously been on the slightly heavier side of normal weight. She had hair everywhere and refused to eat certain foods. She was brought to see Dr.Graham and told that she was just "getting taller and thinning out." She was not much taller than before. Not to long after she collapsed in the supermarket and was brought by ambulance to the hospital. Her parents were almost charged by social services for letting her get to this point and she was held in the hospital for months until she reached a stable weight. Do not seek her for your mental Illness problems. Get a referral to someone who knows how deal with mental health.
Dr. Graham is a very good allbeit busy doctor. I have nothing but good things to say about her. I discoveted a lump in my breast in July 2006. By mid August it was operated on. By March of 2007...I had completed chemo and radiation. I am now in 2016 still clear. I can't thank her enough for the quick response.
I have to say, Dr Graham has to be one of the nicest and most caring doctors I've ever had. I had heard a few things about her during my 8 years with her, but I can tell you first hand, if there is any truth to some of those discussions it's only out of her trying to help people. Once you are her patient she is very attentive and really listens to how you feel. And then she brings her own professional training into her decisions. And yes of course, we don't always like to her things we don't want to hear, but she tells it as it is and that is my kind of Doctor. Thanks for keeping it real and being there for me and my family.. I thinks she great! A no-nonse type of physician.
Dr Graham has been our family Physician for 35 years and now she also cares for my grandchildren. She has always been there when we need her, you may have to wait awhile in the office but she will always squeeze you in. Thank you Dr Graham for all you have done.
Staff: some are very very nice, there are a few that I think should really reconsider their career! Punctuality: You can sit in her office for hours! Only to get 2 seconds of her time. The only time that we spent any real time with staff was when they had student doctors this past fall. Those student doctors were great! Helpfulness: I have to say it is very low because the office is just so unorganized that you walk out of there thinking "okay, what just happened?" Knowlege: I think the doctor is very knowledgeable but it just comes out as a disorganized messed. This is unfortunate as I think people could get better results with her.
