Never go to this man
Here's a quick insight to how Dr. Haas treats his patients.... Him: "Your patient compliancy score is low, as you never went to the sleep clinic in (city)." Me: "I know. I'm sorry- I couldn't get a ride with work and school going on... But what does "patient compliancy" mean?" Him: *Chuckles and lowers his glasses condescendingly* "Aren't you in college?! Compliancy is an 8th grade word...Wow. Well, it means you are not doing what I am asking of you blah blah.." I have never been treated so terribly by a doctor. I sat in my car and cried for hours, as I felt like an idiot. I was only 19 and very mentally unstable. I would never, ever go back to this man. I pray that if you are reading this, you stay away as well! He is in the wrong business and doesn't take care of his patients.

I DO NOT recommend this guy. He is very arrogant and likes to argue a lot because if things don't go his way then he loses it. Only schedules appointments weekly and will only prescribe medications for a week. He's in it for the money, that's why he keeps you coming back every week. My son was having a lot of problems with depression and suicide and Haas did nothing to help him. He is not good at his job, I wouldn't trust him for anything.

Dr Haas sabotaged my chances at the only therapy that has been effective for me. Ketamine therapy. I had been through 8 ketamine treatments in an inpatient facility that set me up with Dr Haas. I had been on literally about 30 different antidepressants with no significant improvement. I was approved by the psychiatrist and would have thought continuing my treatments as an outpatient would be a forgone conclusion. After waiting almost a month for doctor Haas to type up a simple letter stating I am not schizophrenic, and calling at least five times, I was informed that Dr Haas recommended that I not receive Ketamine Infusion Therapy due to my history of substance abuse. Over ten years in my past and that I continue antidepressant therapy. Even though my history speaks to the fact that this was completely ineffective for me. He wanted to make me solely reliant on his practice. To be a mental health professional that is working against his own patient’s mental health is sick!

Competent enough in medication management but consistently late (1 hour+) for appointments, overbills, and left me feeling generally swindled and not cared for. I booked him because he had the most and soonest openings, I understand why that is now. Should have trusted the bad reviews here.

He gets the job done without a lot of unnecessary nonsense. Doesn’t beat around the bush. If something needs to be said he says it.

I felt that Dr. Haas was very good at listening to all my concerns and provided proper treatment plan for us going forward to help with my issues. He was very mindful of all my concerns and offered helpful suggestions for every single one of them. I am very satisfied with my visit and look forward to my next one. The staff were very nice and helpful and able to get me in quickly, which definitely puts them ahead of other offices who have waits months away. They were very kind and welcoming.

"Doctor" Haas began adjusting my medications as of the first visit. I complained about sleep problems, so he lowered my sleep meds. Yes, you read that correctly. He doesn't listen, talks over you, and bills your insurance insane amounts of money for ten minute visits. I've only seen him 4 times, yet he is already just repeating the same innane advice constantly. I'm somewhat articulate, but simply don't have the words to express how strongly I suggest that you find a different doctor.

Dr. Haas made time to see me after I was in serious distress after 3 medication changes. HOWEVER, these were changes he made after barely listening to my input. I made it clear initially, if we were going to alter medications, we do them one at a time. That way we'd know which was causing side effects. This didn't happen. I ended up in my GP's office bawling. Just like many others noted, he talks over you. Also, I was scheduled every week. Now found what I think is overbilling, Just be careful.

Dr. Haas has given me my life back. He listens, jokes, understands and provides amazing advice. He is always available when I need an appointment and NEVER rushes me out of the room. I have never spent less than 25 min with him, which is saying a lot for doctors these days. His only front office worker Nicole is so nice and pleasant. Always goes above and beyond. I am thankful for them both and would highly recommend Dr Haas.

Dr Haas messed up my medication and actual gave me Effexor tablets when I was on extended release capsules. I spent 2016 Christmas and my birthday crying and throwing up. Called his office and when he finally got back to me he said the pharmacy must have got it wrong I called my pharmacy and looked online under my health plan and he was the one not the pharmacy who gave me the wrong dose. He also because I changed ADHD medication because I had it in my purse my old prescription he took my pills

This "doctor" was very dismissive of anything I had to say. He would not let me finish one sentence before interrupting me. I just moved to Florida from Memphis and needed some refills of medication - medication that for the past 2 years has worked wonderfully. He told me that my dose was way too high and that he wanted to lower it. I told him repeatedly that I was feeling the best I have felt in YEARS! He still insisted it be lowered. I found him to be arrogant and unprofessional.

A psychiatrist who needs his own therapist to help with his narcissism. Jerk almost killed me, had to be hospitalized after he drastically changed my meds when I was already bad off. He even told me I wasn't depressed. Doesn't listen, he'll figure out what's wrong with you on his own apparrently.

While very intelligent, Dr. Haas is a terrible listener and very difficult to talk to. He is arrogant. He barely makes I contact, just rushes you out of his office. He has messed up my Rx's too many times to count and makes changes to my meds without consulting me. I have had so many problems when my medication is his only job!
