I've been seeing Dr. Nagode now for a year and a half to help get my ADD under control. She is very laid back and suits my personality very well. She has helped me think of new ways of managing my time to help change bad habits and combined with medication, I am in a better place now. I would recommend her if you are looking for a no frills doctor that will listen to you and not afraid to offer her own views...since that is why I see her to begin with.

My thoughts address the usefulness Dr. Nagode has been for me. As a social worker, I often need to think about or refer one I am working with. I have done this with Dr. Nagode for several years. She is reliable, accurate, clear, on point and helpful.

I saw Dr. Nagode at the request of my psychiatrist in order to optimize medication management for anxiety. The appointment started out well enough but after questioning the logic behind her treatment approach and style I grew more and more frustrated. Far from the collaborative and mutual exchange I'm used to encountering I was, instead, faced with a 'my-way-or-the-highway' mindset. After an hour I left the appointment feeling patronized, confused and defeated.
