Worst "psychiatrist" I've ever had. Obviously one of the people who take this career for the money. Doesn't explain why he prescribes medications and if I tell him the medicine isn't helping and is making me worse, he raises the dosage and adds more medications. Rushes appointments. Don't go to Hummel if you value your mental health and money.

Dr Hummel is an outstanding doctor- the type that is extremely difficult to find and to trust. We too have had problems with the receptionist in relation to scheduling, attentiveness, rudeness and professionalism. However, we deal with her actions because Dr Hummel is so great and wonderful. Our advise is to learn to deal with her in exchange for being able to be treated by a phenomenal doctor.

Horrible time trying to contact him to schedule appointment. No one ever answers the phone or returns your call. I showed up for my appointment and waited an hour no one was there.

I can honestly say that Dr. Hummel is the best doctor I have ever had. After years of working with other doctors, I was referred to him. Dr. Hummel took the time to understand the issues I was having, and what was causing them, rather than simply renewing the prescription my previous doctor had given me. He suggested a completely different prescription, and to my surprise, it worked. I definitely recommend him!

Dr. Hummel says...

My passion for working with children and adolescents in helping them overcome their obstacles is why I chose my profession. I was a teacher before, and it seemed like a lot of the issues that were going unaddressed for children were mental health issues. With my background as a teacher and being a psychiatrist since 2004 allows me to teach children how to deal with their problems as well as cope.
