"While Dr. Strother is very helpful and a great listener, Ms. Harris is much the opposite. She gave us warnings not to "tell on her," suggesting that someone had done so in the past. She did not listen to questions and throughout the day had an irritated tone. Several of my friends who interviewed agree with me...she needs to go." Report Response
