Total QUACK! Gave us a FAKE diagnosis of bipolar disorder when we were 19 years old after a "friend" in college gave us a hash pipe spiked with some kind of psychotropic speed when we were years old (in cahoots with our Nazi uncle Eugene), in order to establish a fake, lifelong psychiatric diagnosis and subsequent record for us.

I would highly recommend Dr. Sodaro. I am retired from the NYPD and after years of living in chronic pain (I am a recipient of EIGHT knee replacements over the last 12 years) After being prescribed the drug "Lyrica" I began to fall into a depression. Having no history myself, or any family members, of depression, I didn't realize what was happening. The final word...Dr. Sodaro gets an A+++ from me. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP DR. SODARO !

Hiksville – Apr 16, 2017
I saw Dr. Sodaro 3 times for severe depression. Upon trying to make a 4th appt, he tells me he thought he took my insurance but doesn't and can't see me anymore. Basically he dropped me as a patient with 0 referrals or help even though I was still on a new med that he had prescribed for me. Is this even legal?

I have been seeing Dr. Sodaro since the 90's. He is a very caring, professional, competent psychiatrist. He always goes out of his way to ensure my stability. I really wouldn't have gotten as far in life as I have without his help.

Dr. Sodaro is kind, compassionate and an amazing doctor! He has saved me, my husband and our son from some very serious situations. Bi-polar disorder, severe depression and much, much more. We have tried numerous psychiatrists before we found him. My only regret is we didn't find him sooner!

Elizabeth in New York, NY – Feb 29, 2016
I've been under Dr. Sodaro's care since the mid 1990's. My behavior was violent, angry, aggressive and dangerous. It took several years to identify the right amount and type of medication but in the past 15 years I've been promoted twice and hold a high level position. At each visit he recalls the previous visit and pays close attention to you.I would never be where I am today without the care and concern of Dr. Sodaro.

I asked a friend who he thought was the best psychiatrist around. He told me Dr. Sodaro. I went to him and I was very satisfied and more. He is a conscience Doctor and true professional. He is interested, listens and cares about his patients. He is a great clinician and diagnostician. He helped me through stressful times in my personal and professional life. Best Psychiatrist on South Shore! I am a nurse and would recommend him to my friends and family . He is also extremely intelligent !

After considering two other doctors within Dr. Sodaro's profession, I was fortunate to find him approximately two years ago. He has helped me tremendously get through the transitional period of my life regarding my career transition in a very changing industry. I would strongly suggest any person going through any trying times of their life to sit and discuss their situation with Dr. Sodaro. He is a true caring professional.
