I saw him many years ago. He's good. But I find it very odd that when you are paying (he used to charge an exorbitant amount of money) so much to see a psychiatrist in private practice that you need to wait way past your appt time. And although the sessions were supposed to be 45 minutes he almost always cut them short and still charged the same. I was just a teenager. I wouldn't deal with that now. He really likes to prescribe pills!
