"Very smooth, and thorough."



"Excellent provider. I read people very well, and she cares about her patients."



"The knowledge and attention to detail Lisa gave was unparaleled and I have seen many behavioral health doctors in the past. The time she spent with me was significant and appropriate for the first visit. We came up with a productive plan. Additionally, the efficiency and ease of use of her office forms and the telehealth provider made my total visit "transit", "wait time (which was zero)" and forms less than one hour total with almost all of that being spent with the actual doctor. Amazing experience, even better doctor. show more"



"Very helpful and knowledgeable! Would definitely recommend. Made me feel comfortable and heard."
