Ratings for Dr. Kathy Kirdeikis
She is uncaring and very judgemental. She didn't care about my side of the story. Anyone with a mental illness doesn't get treated fairly. Also while in emergency she expected me to use the toilet that is visible to all staff. I am a survivor of abuse and using a toilet that anyone could possibly see is like being abused all over again. She is not sympathetic at all.
If only things were different. I miss everybody there. I'm not doing well. Things just got messed up for awhile. I'm not a bad person. I don't need to be punished. I punished myself enough. I am in a very dark place right now. I would do anything to make things right, anything at all I promise. I'm not a bad person really. Even though it was the medication that caused my unusual behaviour I am ashamed. But I don't think I should be punished. I just want to make things right. There was a time I was doing so well and I know I would have gotten back to that place. I am just so sad all the time. I am constantly in tears. I still cry myself to sleep every night. It's just just not fair. Please I am desperate for help. I hate the place I am in. I don't deserve to be punished. I'm not a bad person. And I am never a threat. I only made bad choices while on that other medication. As well as saying things that I regret. I wish I knew it was the medication a lot sooner. It was totally out of character. I have never been so sorry. I'm not a bad person. Really I'm not. And I definitely don't deserve this. I want help. I need help. I want to prove myself to everybody there that I could get better. I would give 200%. And and I miss everybody terribly. I'm not a bad person. I am so so sorry. I'm sorry that I wasn't in a good place. I need help to get out of this dark hole before I fall further. I feel like I have fallen through the cracks in our Mental Health System. Please I am begging. I'm not a bad person.
Absolutely amazing psychiatrist! Saved my life and continues with support and care after 20 years. I am a medical professional and have had many experiences in the medical field both personally and professionally. She truly is a kind, compassionate and knowledgeable physician and I would highly recommend her to anyone with mental health issues.
I'm not sure why pretty much all these reviews are excellent but here is my horrible experience. The front end staff were always super nice but she is a horrible psychiatrist. I always waited at least 20 minutes for my appointment and waited up to 40 minutes before. I have had multiple health problems after going on medication she prescribed. I now have life long medical issues caused by these medications because she isn't knowledgeable. She doesn't seem to know or care about the side effects of medications and how they react with each other. She did not listen to my concerns what so ever and would actually suggest medications that would make these concerns worse. When I called her for an emergency, she never got back to me and said her nor her staff (why the staff only have 4 stars instead of 5) had any record of me calling.
She's a kind, compassionate, dedicated psychiatrist. My encounters with her were during the summer of '13. She was my attending psychiatrist. I was treated with utmost dignity -- it was my privilege to be under her care. She and the wonderful RPN, treated me so incredibly humanely & civily. It's a joy to me that residents are learning from her careful. Not just a wonderful & dedicated psychiatrist, but an honourable, outstanding human-being and scientist.
I feel that I have been blessed many times over by this truly caring and compassionate doctor. Dr. K. has stayed with me through thick and thin. I appreciate her honesty and her humour. Her staff are always prompt with requests and they are personable yet professional. Dr. K. is extremely knowledgeable and has always worked with me to find solutions that are best for me. I value her as a doctor and a human being. She is an incredibly hard worker yet she is very present during my appointments. She can live on my island any day.
Dr.K has been a dream come true for me! I switched from a doc who just saw me for 30 seconds then wrote a prescription. Dr. K is always on time, and always has time to listen to how I'm doing, my concerns about my meds and really does work WITH me to find a solution that works for me and my family. She is very realistic, kind and never rushed. She's the best! (Her front desk staff are amazing too - so kind and helpful!)
