Dr. Kestenburg was seeing my son a few years ago. He insisted on reducing a certain medication and we previously had a very bad reaction to that medicine being reduced. I told him that it was a really bad idea. He was extremely arrogant. He basically told me that I was being a bad mom. He reduced the medicine anyway. My son got extremely aggressive just like I warned Dr. K. He tried to harm a teacher. My son was expelled. Then my son tried to hurt his best friend so I called an ambulance. My son was taken to Hartgrove where they did brain mapping. The results showed that the medication needed to be INCREASED just like I said! I tried to talk to Dr K about it and he was even more arrogant. No apology.Now years later I'm trying to get my son into a new program and staff remembered the incident and my son was denied entrance to a program that could have really helped him. Years later we're still feeling the pain of Dr. K's arrogance. Doctors need to listen to mom's we know our children!

Our daughter Jocelyn has been seeing Dr. Craig Kestenberg for over four years now. Jocelyn is now 18 years old and because of Dr. Kestenberg’s expertise in treating psychiatric disorders in children Jocelyn has improved tremendously. Her school behavior and educational learnings have also greatly improved as has her behavior at home. I would highly recommend him because of his ability to interact with his patients successfully and his great knowledge of psychopharmacology. I would rate him 5 out of 5.

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.

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.

I have recommended Dr. Kestenberg to several people who have asked. People are interested because they can see how happy and satisfied I am with my physician, and they want to find the same for themselves.
