Dr. Karen Valdez helped me to overcome night terrors. She understood my condition, and was concerned about the 4 hour sleep pattern. She treated with medication for a time of 6 months or so, along with helping me talk about things in my past and that these things do not define me. I am no longer needing the medication. My sleep has returned to a normal 7 hours and I am feeling much better. A Great Big Thank You to Dr. Karen Valdez!

Dr. Karen Vadez is the best psychiatrist I have ever been to. I have seen psychiatrists. for almost 25 years. Dr. Valdez is the first psychiatrist to get me on the right cocktail of psych meds to where I am thriving and able to work. Dr. Valdez is a valuable asset to BS&W. I highly recommend her to anyone.
