She seems compassionate and concerned. Yet, I have lost some confidence in her ability to prescribe medications due to some poor choices given to me in the past. I think she is getting her footing now.

Dr. Valdez is great!!! (My only comments are: (a) she is very busy, so it was hard to get an appointment time; and (b) her time is limited (that is, I could have spent hours with her!!!)

I was quite stressed and shared the reasons. She expressed shock with her expression and interjections, interrupting me with her comments. Then she "doctored" the computer, getting answers to those required questions that someone needs for her to asked. My state of mind was unusual for me, but she slipped into the computer thing. I have just had a reduction in a med. It was mentioned but not explored as a reason for my stress. I don't think she grasped the difficult I was having. I'm looking for a new psychiatrist .

Dr. Valdez is a true professional who is always very caring, interested in both my physical/emotional well-being. Dr. Valdez has literally changed my life from a very mentally ill person to a functioning individual through psychiatric medication management. Her psychiatric knowledge is phenomenal. I can tell her anything and not be fearful. Dr. Valdez has been the best doctor I have ever seen and I have seen so many throughout my life. I feel like I am receiving the very best of psychiatric care and her knowledge concerning psych meds has finally given me a good balance in life. I am forever grateful to this doctor who has changed my life to a functioning life.
