I am so distraught after speaking with her.
I only had one encounter with Ruth Olmstead and it was horrifyingly scary! Dr. Olmstead is biases and discriminatory. She originally agreed to see my daughter, who has suffered greatly due to anxiety during Covid. She has gained 40 lbs due to the stress of ridiculous lock downs and mask mandates. During lock down she gained over 40 lbs due to depression and now has difficulty breathing and gets extremely anxious wearing a mask. One hour after accepting my daughter’s appointment knowing my concerns, Dr. Olmstead called me to tell me that she could not help my daughter. She went on to tell me that her mother and two of her patients died of Covid and based on that she would never under any circumstance recommend a child not wear a mask, even if they were having anxiety attacks and couldn’t breath. No clinical reason, just her own bias. How does someone like Dr. Olmstead maintain a license. She would rather lie than protect an innocent child. She told me her only concern was liability. She didn’t care about my daughter’s mental health, just her liability. What has our country come to? I am disgusted. Don’t ever trust your mental health with this monster.
