I made an appointment two months out and he canceled because he only takes geriatric patients. Now I have to find someone new. I'm glad I didn't see him due to his low approval and other horror stories. Total time waster. PCSD sucks too. Back to the hunt for a new clinician.

I had severe anxiety and going to see Dr. Berkowitz was the best thing I have ever done. I always look forward to my appts. He is a psychiatrist not a therapist and even though he is there to regulate my medication, he always has a good story, a life lesson to share and I leave happier then when I arrived. I would recommend him to all my family and friends. He has changed my life for the better 100%.

short, not considerate, not personal, never even looked at me, but typed the whole time on computer and asked questions while typing, never looking over even once. I left with a prescription in my hand.

I went in to see him after suffering from depression & anxiety. He put me on a medicine that made me very ill.I was throwing up, I had body tremors, & the worst headache I have had in a while.I called and told him this & he said don't take it for one day then go back on it again. I don't know about you but I do not like throwing up. So taking a medicine that I know makes me sick isn't okay. After I told him this, he removed me as a patient. What a terrible 'doctor'.I will never return to PCSD.
