I visited Dr. Alcera for anxiety and depression related issues. He would not listen to what I had to say and would constantly tell me my assumption about myself were incorrect. He told me I did not have depression, even though I had multiple suicide attempts, and told me my anxiety was not severe enough for me to be on medication even though I have anxiety attacks several times a week. He also contradicted himself several times during our appointment.

I saw Dr. Eric Alcera at Booker Behavioral health outpatient clinic in Shrewsbury, NJ where he now works, i did not feel he was the right fit for me. He was too rough for me, he would give me advice that he felt i needed. He would not listen to anything that i wanted to do. He made me nervous and uncomfortable working with him. He would not let me work with anyone but him, telling me that no other doctor could handle my case. He would cancel Appointments all the time on me.
