What People Say About Dr. Joseph Alimasuya, MD

Probably the worst doctor I have ever had. He listened to what my mother had to tell him and diagnosed me off what she said before even confirming it with me. This, putting me on medication that made me lose my clear skin for the rest of my life and have neurological damage. I would not recommend this doctor he’s only in it for the money. I wrote a review before and he threatened me to take it down. Needless to say I’m happy with my new doctor.

I do not recommend seeing this physician. He spends most of the appointment on his computer. He’s more concerned about liability than his patient. He had someone sit in on the appointment without an introduction or statement of purpose. He’s unprofessional. Don’t waste your time.

My son as been struggling with ADHD and has seen other doctors, but this doctor was a life changer. My son is doing much better now in school and in life. This doctor is the best in his field and would recommend him to anyone. He explains everything and listens to your concerns. He doesn't just give you any kind of medications. He does a test called GeneSight and helps you with what medications that will work. Thank you Alimasuya for everything.

Doctor Joseph Alimasuya cares about his job, and I can respect that. But that is the ONLY thing he cares about when you talk to him. Research, lectures, he's a teacher. I've had this psychiatrist since 2016, and it was going relatively well at the time. In retrospect? All I need, or ever needed from him, was emails. Everything that was talked about in appointments could have been more easily explained through emails. Completely wastes our time and money. (thirty dollar co-pay. $30. ???) -Gabe

Dr. Alimasuya was very kind and professional during my visit. He takes the time to listen and explain his reasoning for prescriptions. He gives you as much time as you need and his staff are all very friendly. Wait times are minimal, usually only 5-10 minutes.

Doctor Alimasuya was not professional in any way. I have learning disabilities and ask simple questions a lot. I also suffer from severe panic disorder and have a hard time in public. Every question I asked, he responded by rolling his eyes at me. I tried to explain that I was confused and did not understand and he would just respond by rolling his eyes at me and even looking to my husband for support in his unprofessional actions. My husband was baffled by this doctor as well. DO NOT RECOMMEND
