Dr. Tascarella has personally made the patient-doctor experience comfortable, trusting, and inviting. He was personal and understanding while listening to everything I had to say. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a psychiatrist or help with ADHD. Dr. T explained to me my diagnosis and how it correlates with other ongoing issues that I was not aware of; which made me appreciate Dr. T’s attention to detail and explanation. I am a proud client of Dr. Tascarella and I look forward to bettering life and learning more about how to cope with my diagnosis. Thank you for your dedication, personalization and commitment to changing your patients lives for the better.
