If I could give one star, I would. I went to this doctor for a serious condition. Instead , he trivialized it and told me that I needed a hearing aid when I asked him to repeat a question. He also mistakenly told me that I was moody without even taking the time to get to know me. This man is cruel and uncaring and shouldn’t be allowed to practice. He also likes to argue and berate patients. Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time. I don’t want others to go through what I did.

Normally I wouldn't say anything. But I wasted a long time on this dude. And I tolerated a lot of things I really shouldn't have. First problem is he is he really doesn't care. This piece of work would actually nod off in sessions. And he did that over the course of years. Second, when I left it's customary to give a 3 month supply. Nope. Third, he's answering phone calls while I'm talking to him. Four, he doesn't relate well. it's all bout money with this guy. Mean heartless creature. Unworthy!

I found Dr. Sigel abrupt, insensitive and verbally abusive. Meeting with him once for 30 minutes, he delivered several assaulting remarks, none true and clearly insufficient time-frame to calculate a sound assessment. Based on my experience, Dr. Sigel did not present himself as a compassionate, caring and sensitive man, thus, I would not refer anyone to him for professional assistance.

Went to see him for severe anxiety, my therapist told me to go to this place and this Dr is a JOKE!! After talking to him for about 7 mins.. My appointment was for a hour... He told me that I'm depressed and don't have anxiety. I'm on disability for anxiety BTW. He gave me a 30 day pill thing that the pill company pays the Dr's to push on patients. I told him and told him that I don't want anything for depression and that I am here for help with my anxiety. He told me I need to be working. Joke
