Riabova, Katerine MD

Posted on: 12/17/2010

Just fine

I don't write reviews, but I was looking up Dr. Riabova's phone number and saw the one bad review she has. I would like to offer a counter perspective. Dr. Riabova respects my ability to self-assess. Some other psychiatrists either won't prescribe, or push too many meds, and sometimes discount my opinion because of my mental disorder. In contrast, Dr. Riabova doesn't seem to patronize me, and she believed me when I said that the listed dose is not right for me. At the first appt., she did get a detailed history. I dislike that, too, but it's part of her job. Her questions weren't more intrusive than any other psych's. She realized my blood levels need checked because of my meds--she didn't need to be reminded. She responds quickly if you contact her between appointments. She seems to be competent and is quite adequate for my needs.
