I can’t thank Dr. Rudominer enough for helping me turn my life around. I don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for him. He truly cares and wants the best for his patients. He is always there to listen and guide me through any struggles I’m going through. Dr. Rudominer is the best hands down!

I have been a patient of Dr Rudominer for nearly two years. He is a kind and compassionate physician, and he is always accommodating of my work schedule. I appreciate how much he has helped me, my life is now better than ever! He encourages me to set goals and reach those goals. I even remember my first appointment with him, he must have noticed I was a little nervous because he offered me a cup of tea! I would totally recommend Dr Rudominer to anyone who is looking for a great doctor!

From my first visit with Dr Rudominer, I knew I was in good hands. I knew after the first session, there was no need to look for another therapist. I was comfortable. I felt a connection. I felt safe. Dr Rudominer understands. He cares. He gives you his complete undivided attention and helps you to help yourself. He listens very carefully, then, he explains why your emotions are getting the best of you and most importantly, he explains how to get ahold of those emotions. You leave his office feeling refreshed. You feel hope for a better future. This can only come from a professional doctor with experience. Dr Rudominer is a fine doctor and a caring human being. You can not ask for a better combination.

Dr. Rudominer SAVED MY SON! We had try other doctors, medicines, and nothing worked, nothing changed... on the contrary things were getting worse because my son was losing hope and didn’t want to live anymore. Dr. Rudominer was the only professional that understood my son’s mind and was able to get to the root of the problem. He got my son out of that dark, deep, painful hole he had fallen in. I will be grateful to Dr. Rudominer until the end of my days!

Never had a chance to experiment Dr. Rudominer. My son was desperately looking for someone to help him. E-mailed his office with a request to schedule an appointment since he seemed to be someone that could really help. Was kind of a desperate situation and we were hoping to finally get the help my son needed. Well...my son and I left e-mails asking for a return call, my son left two messages on Dr's voice mail and we literally heard absolutely nothing. If this is the way, this doctor treats his practice, I would never recommend someone like this to anyone with a real problem and desperate. That being said, he maybe is paying patients for all of his good reviews. The only reason I gave out stars since without them I was unable to leave this review.

Most knowledgeable, compassionate, caring, available doctor a patient could possibly ask for. Easy to talk to about anything. He got me off of 3 psychiatric medicines I was on for 20 years within months of seeing him. 100% off. My wife was on lithium for bi-polar for 40 years. Within her first session he said what makes you think you are bi-polar. Suffice it to say she is off of lithium now with no problems. I could go on with many accolades, but I think no more needs to be said.

I have been seeing Dr. Rudy for about 2 years now. He has brought me to a better place both emotionally and physically. Not only is he available when I need him, but accommodates my business schedule. I can, without hesitation, recommend his services. He is caring, compassionate and extremely intelligent. He is truly one of a kind!

I have been seeing Dr. Rudi for several years and I have stayed with him primarily for two reasons. First he still cares about his patients. I originally went to him for ADD. Rather than just prescribing medication, he actually took the time to discuss it with me. Habits, personal issues, and how to help stay on track. He still does. Secondly, he's good at what he does. Often, he will pickup on problems, even when I don't bring them up. He is very easy to work with and always plays it straight.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rudominer for several years now. In all this time I still find him kind, considerate, compassionate, and caring. Always attentive and always available if needed, he has helped me with my depression and anxiety greatly. He is a very caring physician, listens attentively, and guides you in the right direction. IM thankful.

This doctor told me upfront he charges $200 for psychiatry an hour, $300 if therapy is included. He is very smart. Ridiculous prices, especially if you are sick and can't work because of your illness. This is a shame that doctors are like this.

I have been seeing Dr Rudominer off and on since 78’ and he has truly been involved in every major facet of my life. He has been my doctor, Guru and teacher. While 39 years may seem a very long time, I am not a typical person nor have I lived an average life. Dr R has been with me from adolescence…starting my own company at 18…first marriage…my son…my volunteer work during 9/11 and the resulting cancer 5 years later…my divorce…my quest for true love and my current marriage. I am now in a amazing

I came to New York just 6 years ago from a small European country. When I arrived I had zero expectation of marriage, entering therapy or even staying in the US. Where I’m from the very concept of going to a psychiatrist to discuss problems goes against our traditions. I met Dr R through my boyfriend and subsequent husband. My boyfriend and I knew we had many differences culturally, religiously as well as a 17-year age gap. After seeing Dr R the first time, hearing his perspective and humor

Dr. Rudominer has worked tirelessly and effortlessly to understand the root of my problems. He is attentive, caring, understanding, and most of all he is compassionate. Dr. Rudominer does not see me as an ill individual but as an individual with an illness that can be cured. Through tough love, hard work and dedication, Dr. Rudominer is continuously helping me to become a better person. I highly recommend his services. He truly is one of a kind doctor and the best of the best.

My experience was a phone contact which was pleasant at first. Then after a second phone call his tone of voice seemed agitated. For that reason alone I decided not to make an appointment.
