Cannot say enough good things about this doctor! The first visit we had we spent almost 2 and a half hours talking about everything other than psychiatry! Being a methadone patient, it was an incredible coup that I was able to speak to the man who started the 1st methadone clinic in America! It's like being a diabetic and meeting the person who invented injection insulin! He is a treasure and he really made me look at things in a positive way.
