Professional. Present. Knows his stuff. Has never, ever let me down!
in Jersey City, NJ |
Very formal, not at all warm. Switches medicines before giving them a chance to work. Drops patients without giving required 30 days notice. Denies patient told him she was suicidal, then dropped her as a patient after a suicide attempt. Just when he was needed the most. Other psychiatrists are baffled by this! Obviously doesn't believe in his own skills if he won't treat serious cases.
