I feel that Dr. Sison listened to my concerns. Made me feel very comfortable. I am always at ease speaking with him. Charlene at the front desk is always very polite and friendly. I am very happy with my treatment and visits.

This is the guy who put me on full-dose Paxil when I was ELEVEN, left me on it for over a year despite multiple family members telling him it was making me so nonfunctioning I was having trouble stringing a sentence together, and then pulled me off it cold-turkey when my father told him to change something or he'd stop paying. You aren't even ALLOWED to put 11 year olds on Paxil. Thanks, buddy, I sure enjoy as an adult having chemically induced amnesia for a significant part of my childhood!

I have found him be very knowledgeable and understanding and have referred people to him. He is conservative when it comes to pharmaceutical intervention which I feel is a plus. His practice is Psychiatry not Psychology and so if your looking for a doctor to talk to for an hour, you should probably go to a Psychologist as well. Psychiatrists generally manage medications, Psychologists can not prescribe.
