I have been a patient of Dr. Bot's for over 20 years. Prior to seeing him, I had been over-medicated and had a trust issue with psychiatrists. Dr. Bot discovered my depression was not genetic but rather was caused by events in my life and weaned me off one of the medications I had been taking for 20 years which I did not need and which had adverse side effects. He has also counseled me on relationship issues with my family and more recently a narcissistic boss. I trust his judgment completely and I highly recommend him.

I once told a psychologist that I was seeing Dr. Bot. The psychologist's eyes opened wide: "He's evil." He truly is. He is not at all empathetic and sits in his lush office like he's a god. I've never had a meeting with him where I did not wind up in my car sobbing. He's cruel.

Dr. Bot and his team are amazing. I feel very lucky to have found him. I have a love hate relationship with my mental health and both Dr. Bot and his team have helped me love it more than hate it. I would highly recommend Dr. Bot to anyone with mental health issues and/or if you have questions.

Terrible. It takes more than 15mins and two seconds of eye contact to connect w your patient and desperate but present and ever loving husband. Experience is wasted if you deny the ground work.

This man may have qualifications to be a doctor, but under no circumstances does this man possess the personal skills necessary to be an effective doctor. When my partner and I called regarding a recent med change we were concerned about due to some restlessness we were not seeing prior to this change, we were met with intense hostility and were told to "go find a new psychiatrist." I have never dealt with this person in my life but at this point we WILL be finding another psychiatrist!

Been seeing Dr. B for few years. Don't know what would have done without him at times. Have referred others and have only heard positive feedback. He is easy to work with but does have a couple rules. If cancel appointment do it within 24 hours or will get charged. If sick no problem as long as let him know. He always calls back immediately (except once when there was a phone issue and he was not able to get right back. Most staff good and the only time I have to wait is if I am early

I've been seeing Dr. Bot for a long enough time to know that he takes into consideration all factors when prescribing help. It would be to all of our benefit if health care professionals would use more discretion like his office does. As someone who actually responds well to the treatment that has been authorized, I encourage all prescribers to use the same type of discretion and keep the integrity at a high standard. We, as patients, rely on your professionalism.

I don't reccomend him to anyone that needs someone that is sensitive. I was not impressed at all with his compassion with someone that needs help. And that is saying it kindly. The last conversation I had with him he said " I don't need to take your abuse." And that is absolutely not the type of person I am. Just a person that needs help with post partum.

My experience with Dr. Bot has been extremely good. He cares about what is going on in my life. He is always on time. He gives me his full attention and he includes me in decisions in my treatment. I have been under his care now for several years. If it weren't for Dr. Bot, I wouldn't be here today. He is the best! Thank you Dr. Bot for everything you have done and do for me. ~Patty~

Good solid doctor. I read an earlier evaluation that said the person did not like Dr Bot because he did not allow extra xanax during a hard time. I'm not sure why that would be because when I was going through a particularly difficult time (a death, school work) I found the opposite to be true. It is true that Dr. Bot is very concerned about the use or potential overuse of medications like xanax. It is really addicting. I have been on and I understand his caution. I appreciate his concern.
