Dr. Anker is a top practitioner. His clinical skills and ability to diagnose complex issues are second to none. He is very insightful and generally helpful. I have been treating with him for about seven years and I have made great progress with his help. I have recommended him to several other people, including family members. The one other person that I know who treats with him is also very pleased with the treatment received. You get what you pay for in all things and mental health treatment is no exception.

Scott – Oct 19, 2020
Dr Anker cancelled 2 appointments on the day of the appointments., 2 times in a row . He never called my son back personally until I called the office and had to leave a message for him that those cancelation were enough to shut my son off of seeking his help or any help to this day. I think what he did was disgraceful. While he’s charging 300$ an hour and doesn’t take insurance. Dr Anker, if you are reading this perhaps you feel compelled to refund me my hard working nurses pay for the cash I paid to you for those 3 or 4 unworthy appointments my son had with you in 201&

Just left an emergency appointment with him, which he stayed after hours at his office which was closed for me. He spends zero time on the computer, 100% of his attention is on you and the issues you are experiencing. He found the perfect balance" of therapy and medication for me that, after multiple abusive psychiatrists, I can finally say I am enjoying life again. He will even call me when I text him that I am in crisis, all to make sure I am alright and coach me through it. Best doc on earth.

Dr. Anker is who to see if you have a complicated history or if you want the best of the best. His rates are astronomical, but he will get you to a better place.

Dr. Anker is a deeply compassionate and highly skilled physician. He is interested in his patients and is not glued to his computer screen. I would call him "Old School" in the best sense of the phrase, caring, courtly, and courteous?.
