I have been seeing Dr. Howland for over 4 years for Panic/ anxiety and Depression and he has been great for me. The problem i had was my insurance changed to medicare, i went in for my monthly visit last week, and i was super depressed and anxious. I had started cutting myself again. When I arrived the lady at the desk started screaming at me that my new insurance has a copay, i owed $28 and engaged me in brow beating rant until my anxiety was through the roof. Luckily Dr. Howland came out and saved me from her, but was wreck worse than i came in. I had a whole agenda i wanted to discuss with the Dr. and after her verbal abuse I forgot everything and went home cut myself some more. I needed his help desperatly and was not able to get it. The next day she called me up and continued it.

Dr. Howland is a wonderful and caring psychiatrist. He has been my doctor for many years and I can't speak more highly of him.

This psychiatrist was confrontative (although in a soft voice) and jumped to conclusions. With his negative parental attitude, he made me feel worse than before I saw him. I have both long life experience and have seen several other mental health professionals over the years, and would say that there is something wrong here.
