I called for an appointment, was given a time. I was told that she may be a few minutes late due to work at another office. Seemed reasonable since I'm in desperate need for help. Nearly 40 minutes after my appointment, she arrived out of breath and rushed with seven other people waiting in the office. I left. How focused was she going to be on a new patient with 7 others waiting in the office? Maybe you're a great doc but your scheduling says that your time is more valuable than mine

Dr. Poniatowicz has been taking care of my mom with Bipolar depression for over 10 years now and is truly one of the best psychiatrists that I have ever met. She has successfully treated my mother multiple times and each time has gotted her out of very deep depressive crises. She is a physician who always listens to the patient and makes appropriate adjustments in order to help the patient make a quick recovery. We are truly greatful for her excelent and compassionate patient care.
