Dr. Z "could" be a great psychiatrist but has decided to forgo his hippocratic oath and not be. He is more interested in cash payments for suboxone "treatment" aka spending 5-10 minutes with a patient then writing scripts, than providing a consistent, thorough, and safe enviornment for people looking for help with any other mental health problem. He does NOT take insurance, has discharged long term psychiatry patients, and refuses to provide records to SSD, attorneys, nor the patients themselves. Unless you are looking for suboxone treatment save yourself the trouble and find a better psychiatrist!

Great staff. Fantastic doctor who really cares about his pts outcome and who isn’t like the rest of his contemporaries and gets you in and out aka this clinic is not a pill mill. He works with pts on their goals. Listens more than most doctors this day and age. If you’re seeking to change yourself and your situation with the debilitating effects of opiates and the hold they have over your life then this is your program.
