Dr Megan Roberts
21st November 2018
I found Dr Roberts immensely callous and unwilling to listen to me as a patient. She was the first psychiatrist I had ever seen and gave me a terrible impression of psychiatry as a whole (fortunately other psychiatrists have since corrected this impression!) She refused to take me off medication which was not working to alleviate my symptoms as well as providing a whole host of side effects, and threatened me with forcible administration should I not comply with her orders. When I was moved to a different hospital they changed the medication as soon as I asked and my symptoms subsided relatively quickly. Other patients were punished for submitting formal complaints about her by being placed on a stricter hold. I do not think she should be practising psychiatry, nor interacting with vulnerable adults.
