Should be barred from practicing. Condescending, short-tempered and insulting. Thought I was being pranked on some kind of reality tv show. It was that bad.

He seems scattered sometimes, but he is amazing at zeroing in on the problem and sincerely cares about us patients. I called him once very very late at night and he called me back quickly

This doctor is brilliant, takes his responsibility for your correct diagnosis very seriously. His willingness to adjust my meds to find just the right dosage and combination helped me to feel better than I had in years!! I feel so blessed to have been referred to Dr DeBrito.

DeBrito is very condescending. When speaking to me he prefaces his comments with my dear this.... Doesn't listen well. Makes snap judgements.
