What People Say About Dr. Descartes Li, MD
Reply
Dr. Li is phenomenal! My wife struggled for 15 years with depression and anxiety. She was hospitalized several times. Dr. Li diagnosed my wife and prescribed treatment that showed immediate and positive results. As with all things in life, changes happen. When a challenge arose I was able to reach out to Dr. Li and he always returned my contact then took immediate action to adjust treatment as necessary. Dr. Li is the best!
