Gomez MD Eneida PA
I think I am calm enough to write this. I am not a perfect human being and yesterday was a very bad day, Started out great, had an 11 am appointment (1 st visit) with Dr Gomez. I must tell you !) I am very new to the Florida state, I just moved here and 2) I am directionally challenged, I always carry a GPS to get me around.Appointment is 11 am, I leave house at 10:30 as address is on Palm coast parkway wihich is 1 mile from my house. I cannot locate office, and go around in circles at least 4 or 5 times, I then asked for help with some ladies jogging. They gave me instructions and still ended up going around in circles. I was so frustrated I was in tears. I called the office to get directions but got recording. Left a message no one called back. an hour had passed of me driving in circles and in tears. I called dr office back and this time got a person who was of no help to me with directions and did not offer to find someone else in office that may have been able to give directions. I was told to add NW to address in GPS, stop by and pick up paperwork but I would have to reschedule appt as my 'allotted time' had expired. OK, I finally got to the plaza. Then:address was 4865. In the plaza I found 4863 and 4867 with an unmarked address location in between. I walked in there (I am on crutches) only to find out address 4865 was on the opposite side of this street. I drove there. Found the office and walked in (again on crutches) . One lady was in waiting room. Sliding glass door was marked, do not tap on glass, do not move glass door, just sit down and wait . No sign in sheet. Other lady in office said 'I know, it doesn;t make sense, and it was her 1st time in this office and she did not like it either.' I loudly called for help standing in front of the glass window. A young lady opened the window, and said for me to sit down and wait as she was on the phone. I told her that standing/sitting/walking on crutches was not easy. She just repeated earlier statements. I sit down, close to really just plain losing it, and the girl came out a few minutes, and handed me the pre-office visit paperwork. She said she walked out of the office to save me some steps. OK. I asked her about rescheduling, hoping I would not have to wait another month to get in. She said I have to stand up and come to window then. ??? what about saving me steps? ok, fine. I go to window, she says dr cannot see me till mid December but I could see license practitioner in 2 weeks. ???? I was so very angry, frustrated and felt so helpless, I said I would take the appointment with the practitioner but that in the meantime I would try to find a different doctor to see me. At this the girl said, "ok, since you say that, I cannot/will not schedule you...period." I shoved her paperwork through the office toward her to her desk and walked out. The other lady in the office even offered her appointment for me but she and I were told no. Evidently I am not supposed to find someone else. I just really hope no one else has an experience with this office/doctor anywhere near my experience. It ruined my day, and today I am still upset. I only gave it one star because the system forced me to mark a star rating.
Tips & Advices
A child psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in issues that affect the mental and emotional health of children and teens. Child psychiatrists can provide treatment for children and teenagers who suffer from depression, autism, anxiety disorders, attention disorders, drug addictions, eating disorders, mood disorders, and a wide range of behavioral problems.
Psychiatrists typically ask questions that focus  on the issues that are having a negative effect on your life. In an initial visit with a psychiatrist, you may be asked about symptoms you've experienced, and ways in which you've tried to deal with them. You might be asked about current and past medical conditions, as well asa family health history.
A referral is an authorization from your doctor saying that a certain type of treatment is medically necessary, and it's usually required if you want your insurance company to cover the costs associated with a visit to a psychiatrist. If you don't have insurance, a referral is not required to schedule a psychiatrist visit.
Psychiatrists and psychologists sometimes collaborate, and this typically takes place when working with patients who have serious mental health problems. In cases like this, a psychologist will treat the patient from a behavioral perspective. A psychiatrist will complement this treatment with care that handles issues concerning biology, neurology, and the prescription of drugs.
Many psychiatrists specialize in treating certain conditions. Some psychiatrists focus on substance abuse therapy, and this is the treatment of addiction to substances like alcohol, narcotics, and tobacco. Others specialize in biological psychiatry, which is the treatment of brain chemistry disorders like depression and schizophrenia. Psychiatrists might also specialize in treating elderly patients or children and adolescents.
