Patient Comments (4)

A Session with him would only last 10 minutes. He prescribed Abilify for me that left me with tardive dyskinesia. A permanent side effect. I'm ashamed to go in public because the effect is so disfiguring.

He is the worse ever. He never explains why he is cutting your meds. He drastically cut med1/2 & cold turkey at same off of an amphetamine. I was spiraling so fast downward by the third day I was literally dying mentally; reached out to him I'm getting worse & he would not see me or change my meds....more

Dr. is very compassionate and understanding. He spends extra time with me when he sees I am in distress. I like going to hm because he cares.He explains things thoroughly so that I understand what he is saying.

He never participates in sessions with patients. A patient only sees nurse practitioners, nurses, and others. This may be because of administration. I wouldn't know him if i saw him and I've been going there for almost 4 years. Beginning in 2016 this department isn't working with patients...more
