Do not go to see Dr. Nizar for psychiatry. He is an awful doctor. He earned his degree from an island I have never even heard of. If you have depression, he expects you to give him a full answer as to why you are depressed and doesn't listen or communicate at all. I would never recommend going there. Do yourself a favor - DONT.
