"I must say this Dr. Likes to switch around your meds quite a bit! Wish i knew before I became a patient! He does like to monkey around with meds instead of keeping them constant with what works! He will change anything with the drop off a hat and doesn't care what you say. Even if something is working wonders for you he will change it if he gets a kick back from a different me company! This has happened many times to me! he doesn't listen to you nor care about your mental health!!"

Too young to be messing with other peoples medications. His bed side manor could use a little work, as his attitude as well. Didn't like him talking down to me, jumped right in during a consult and started reducing meds I've been on for over 20 years. This guy has no clue. Never have i experienced such arrogance from a doctor! And when you call, its all automated and/or run by message only, i don't know how you can run a business playing phone tag with patients, that's not doctoring.

He's a horrible doctor/psychologist. He treated me as if I were a ghost, he didn't look me in the eyes and he didn't even listen to me when I tried to explain my mental problems. In the end he prescribed me something useless and pretty much sent me on my way. I highly don't recommend you go to this doctor.

Dr. Belen is caring and friendly. He listens carefully and takes what I say seriously. He offers effective treatment, such was medicines and memory training.
