Alabama Psychiatry and Counseling


My daughter had an appointment today with Dr. Rabbani. She drove over an hour to get to her appointment only to find out that it was a telehealth appointment. Our reminder text message of our appointment did not mention that anywhere. In fact it said a telehealth appointment would be available if you had Covid symptoms. You should definitely rethink your communication to your patients. My daughter spent three hours in a car and gas only to have to do her appointment in her car. That’s pretty poor customer service if you ask me.
