Please describe your experience with the provider.       

He is very friendly and respectful. He has primarily helped me with mental health treatment, specifically helping me find an anti-depressant that has worked well for me. For other issues however, I have found that he is quick to offer drugs as a solution to most problems, when they could probably be solved with changes in diet or other more holistic solutions. He could definitely be more aware of LGBTQ issues and has made assumptions about my sexuality that are annoying.

The support staff has been great.

 White, queer, cis-gendered man, upper middle class background, struggle with mental health issues.
