Some Mental Health Professionals Have No Bedside Manner

#1
Years ago, I saw a psychiatric nurse practitioner who had no bedside manner. He wasn't the warmest mental health professional in the world.

However, I continued to work with him because, although he had no bedside manner, he was very thorough, asked me a lot of questions, and had a lot of advice to give.

But I've found that the majority of mental health professionals are warm and friendly.

If you were seeing a psychiatrist or a therapist, would you rather work with a provider who had a lot of bedside manner? Or would you not have a preference?

Just curious.
