The best doctor anyone could ask for. Made sure I got the highest level of care, and was there for me at critical times over the span of four years. He has a great sense of humor and I trust his judgement.

I would not recommend this Dr. He is highly dismissive of patient's concerns regarding medication side effects. He also seems judgmental and eager to just push more meds regardless of the unpleasant side effects. I don't think he even believed me about the side effects I was experiencing. I would hope that he doesn't provide any sort of talk-therapy, because his responses to genuinely distressing situations are not very therapeutic.

Sensitive and extremely pragmatic and helpful. Willing to try unusual things for people for whom all of the standard things haven't worked. Appropriately aggressive in seeking true improvement for patients. The best psychiatrist I've ever seen, hands down.
