A thoughtful and patient Dr who enabled my son to express himself better than I have ever heard, which created the most helpful treatment program I've seen to date (and I've seen A LOT).

I would not recommend Dr. Smith for a neutral evaluation for a court hearing. He does not take the requisite time to conduct a thorough evaluation, and he has allowed for many mistakes in his approach to discerning the validity of information.

Total rip off. Will bill your insurance hundreds of dollars for 5 minute sessions in which all he does is write a prescription and will try to bully you into joining his other programs. Wish I could give zero stars.
