Ive been seeing Dr. Kestenberg for ~6 months and he's been a godsend. Great listener, approaches problems aggressively to reach treatment goals, and has a kind disposition that shines through. I was initially not very excited to be seeing a psychiatrist but Dr. K removed that fear and stigma of addressing mental health problems with a doctor.

My daughter Jocelyn who is 17 years old has been seeing Dr. Kestenberg for the last 3 to 4 years. We have seen 5 psychiatrists in the past 14 years. Dr Kestenberg is the best psychiatrist we have seen. Because of his experience and ability to prescribe medication that improves behavior and mental problems Jocelyn is doing her best in academics and behaviors. My background is child and adolescent therapy as a LCSW. I have worked with many psychiatric conditions and psychiatrists. Dr Kestenberg is the most knowledgeable in all areas of psychiatry.

Dr. K was great at first, and played with my son. He was amazing! We were pleased! Then as my son grew, his already severe behavior worsened. Dr. K insisted on reducing a medicine and I knew that my son's behavior would get even worse. He got angry and told me I was a bad mom threatened DCFS on me. The meds were reduced and my son tried to hurt his best friend. We had to call an ambulance and my son went to a hospital where they did brain mapping and they said he needed that same medicine increased! I called him to tell him that he needs to listen to parents as we know our kids best. His response was childish and arrogant. I've heard other horror stories from other parents too.

Kestenberg is a non compliance Dr. He is not an easy person to deal with. I would never recommend him to another. Not if my life depended on it. Step lightly with him, he doesn't understand people it's his way or nothing. Ewwwwwsoooooogwaud, never. Lack of knowledge completely. He is arragagent to say the least. These doctors hand out medicine they know nothing about.
