Review of Dr. Hammerness

-

Reckless and arrogant. Misdiagnosed my child, over prescibed the wrong meds then left us with no way of reaching him. His response: He blamed us for going along with his treatment plan. Stand-offish and a little too cool, overall bad experience.

Review of Dr. Hammerness

-

Very chilly if not robotic manner with kids and parents, and a rote, limited understanding of clinical issues and treatment. I expect he's better at research.

Review of Dr. Munshi

- in Groveland, MA |

I was surprised to see a bad review. I too have a son with special needs and I find Dr. Munshi very compassionate and patient. He listens and remembers past events and recommends others in your need to advocate.

Review of Dr. O'Garr

-Massachusetts |

Over and above would never be an attribute used to describe this guy. My daughter was a patient of his, and on a few occasions had an acute need to speak with him (one that involved a hospital visit). Each time, he was slow to respond, having his office assistant call and no sense of urgency in the matter. Office visits weren't much better. He lacks an empathetic demeanor required in this profession.

Review of Dr. O'Garr

-West Roxbury, MA |

We are very happy with Dr. OGarr. I have two children who see him. They are both have attention issues and are mildly in the autism spectrum. Dr O'Garr really listens, he's friendly, he's pragmatic, he gets it, and he is usually on time (despite spending ample time with my kids). We switched to him from another dr (now retired) and I'm thrilled. Big thumbs up.

Review of Dr. Munshi

- in Northborough, MA |

As a parent of a child with special needs, I go to BCH expecting the best quality and care from each person who works there. Dr. Munshi does not even come close to meeting the requirements of his position. He lacks compassion, empathy and skill in working with children and their families. He relies on a combination of fear and guilt to try to get you out of his office as quick as possible and never remembers the history of what we have already tried and been through.

Review of Dr. Hammerness

-Dover, MA |

Extremely knowledgeable with children & teens with anxieties and ADHD. He has worked with my daughter for over 10 years and has been so diligent and compassionate with her care. He is extremely professional and competent, and seems to really understand and support his patients.
