Dr. Obolsky is a very experienced and seasoned psychiatrist. I did not feel my previous psychiatrist understood me or my issues. Dr. Obolsky does not take insurance, but he is worth it. You get what you pay for.

I have been seeing Dr. Obolsky weekly for psychotherapy and medication management. He is one of a few psychiatrists who still sees patients for 45 minutes, provides therapy, and answers his cell phone after office hours. He has helped me deal with depression and serious losses. I was fortunate to find a psychiatrist who actually takes time to listen to his patients. I never have to wait for longer than 5 minutes since each patient has an assigned time slot.
