Based on his reviews, I was worried about bringing my kids to see him. But what we found was a kind, professional, wonderful doctor! He takes his time with my kids, not once have we felt rushed and he has a true understanding of mental illness and developmental delays in children. Such an awesome doctor!

Absolutely Awful. Uncaring, unprofessional, rude, self-involved, inexperienced, and in my opinion is only a doctor for the paycheck. He does not care about his patients or their well-being, and only cares about prescribing medications that he has been PAID to prescribe. There are websites out there that show how much from each pharmaceutical company a doctor has received, and this just goes to show that a medication I hated but he absolutely insisted I take was pushed on him by a pharma company. I did NOT want to be on an antidepressant but he refused to prescribe the medication that actually WORKED for me unless I took this, and took a drug test for each visit to make sure I was actually taking it. He should have his license taken away, he is a disgusting person.

I have been seeing this doctor for a little over a year now and my last visit will be my very last appointment with him. It’s impossible to speak with office staff or get any responses from him. His method of treatment is to keep adding new medications instead of discontinuing the one that’s not working. If you question anything-medications, treatment plans, diagnosis-you will be ignored. What you may initially think is a sympathetic ear is actually him simply repeating the same basic responses. “I’m sorry you feel that way.” “I hope you feel better soon.” “I understand your concerns.” But the moment you question anything, it becomes a my way or the highway response filled by deflection and loss of interest in you as a patient. If you want to be over medicated, have no say in your treatment and have zero communication with staff and doctor (with the added bonus of no available appointments for months no matter what you’re going through) then this is the guy for you. Go ANYWHERE ELSE!

This “doctor” should quit. He has no empathy or morals. He is extremely judge mental and hard to understand. His answer for everything is “I’m sorry that you feel that way” or “I am happy to hear this” don’t waste your time. He is young inexperienced and it shows
