What People Say About Dr. Joseph Kwentus, MD

Dr. Kwentus was vile and unprofessional with our family member. He was vulgar and did nothing to aid in our family members mental health. If anything he made things worse. My family member was given medication and the staff wouldn’t or couldn’t even tell them what it was. We will be looking deeper into this and if we need too we will take legal action Against this facility. Someone needs to look into the quality of the staff and doctors at this facility. Someone’s mental health is nothing to play with and be unprofessional about.
