Patient Comments (3)
in St Louis, MO |
My doctor for almost 30 years, Jeffrey S. Pevnick, M.D., is outstanding in his field. He knows when extensive talk therapy might help a patient. I have benefitted from following his advice during various crises--e.g., try AA or AlAnon, attend grief therapy sessions, see a female clinical social worker for help with relationships--all while depending on him to monitor my mental health and medication. He has always treated me with respect and compassion, and I count him as a blessing in my life.

When prescribing a medication that needs prior authorization he doesn't follow through with. Not very personable and when you talk it's as he is in his own little place. He even ask you what you want or think of medications instead of making them himself and like said VERY heavily relied on meds.

Dr. Pevnick relies heavily on medication as the primary treatment option. He asks the exact same questions every time I visit--not questions about my stability, but what I do for work, etc... My first two visits went well, and I was put on medication that began to help me. However, this week, I was prescribed a different medication I couldn't afford. Now two days have gone by, and after speaking by phone, he STILL hasn't updated my prescription at the pharmacy. I would label him as incompentent
