I'd only give 3/5 stars and that's due to clinical competence. For the brief time I worked with Lynn she seemed highly educated and was helping me with PPD/PPA combined with a leg fracture/surgery. She seemed to minimize my anxieties and problems but I was trying to get perspective so trusted it wasn't just her being cold at first. Then she no showed a virtual appointment and never tried to reengage ... more me despite me sending a secure message to please call to reschedule. 6 weeks later I voiced my concerns to Lauren and was told I should work my issues out with Lynn and that no other clinicians were available. I'm not seeing a provider that clearly doesn't care so here we are in June with no calls or messages since my contact with Lauren in March. Being a VA employee I cannot access the portal at work as it's restricted, my phone doesn't reply to messages correctly, my patients receive far more case management and would never be allowed to be lost to follow up in such a way. I find this unacceptable and substandard mental health care so do not recommend this practice unless you feel like hounding down a provider that clearly doesn't care
