TRACIE FRIAL REVIEW
This complaint was posted on NAS on 8th Mar, 2022 and is a permanent record located here: https://www.nameandshame.com/tracie-frial-5YOVT/not-recommended-id5yedr .
The report she prepared on the psych eval she administered for me as part of my Vocational Rehabilitation case contained numerous errors, omissions, misstatements, and many strange misquotes. Throughout the entire report, factual details as to my personal, educational, mental health, and medical history that were clearly stated to her (and she appeared to write them down as they were spoken) were not just reported inaccurately, but many seemed to come entirely from her imagination. That the report was taken as factual by VR staff before I had a chance to see it has seriously damaged my ability to recieve needed and appropriate services. Only one of the many quotes attributed to me was even close to something I said, or would ever say. Her personal biases and predjudices were inserted throughout. Basic, important facts were not contained in the report at all. Worse, she inserted numerous pieces of misinformation and false claims on her part.
Nobody loves the results of their psych eval, and it is normal to find a few mistakes and things one disagrees with, or perhaps are too close to home for comfort. However, I have never seen one this poorly and oddly created.
I have had this exact same testing and evaluation performed a number of times over the years, but that wild report was a new one on me. My mistake for not researching her first, because in finally doing so I found that she advertises herself as a “Christian Counselor” Whatever kind of practitioner that is, they would not be appropriate for me in any case.
Who suggests that a victim of Domestic Violence has an anxiety disorder because they wish no contact with their past abuser? She even stated that I should be required to undergo drug/alcohol testing and treatment as a condition of receiving VR services, and I have not used or abused anything at all of the first kind for three decades, abused alcohol even a little bit for an easy ten years, and in the case of most popular narcotics and opiates, absolutely never. Predjudice and classism? Or, was she talking about herself? So, the best thing about seeing this person is that she has acted to impede my progress in receiving the VR services that I am entitled to and am in need of. She’s made me have to fight to even be classified by their staff in a manner appropriate to my career goals. Because of her, a great deal of my precious time has already been wasted, and it’ll get worse before it gets better. I need a dentist and a cardiologist, but instead now I’m having to fight off bureaucrats whose job it is to push clients off into whatever “community resources” won’t cost the state anything. Such as AA.
There’s a LOT more than that last part she just made up and screwed up, such as repeated false claims that I “couldn’t” provide certain details that I did provide, and succinctly.
This goes to the entire report and it’s depiction of someone that isn’t me. Maybe it’s someone she knows.
Every number she replaced with another, even the time I spent in college, and more recently was temporarily disabled from an injury was wildly wrong. Ugh, I could go on, but….
I include all this for the benefit of all, and especially for Voc Rehab clients. If you choose the larger practice she’s a part of, that should be fine, but do not allow Tracie Frial to screw up your case as she has done mine.
