Solely a Psychopharmacist. Terrible experience with him twice. He tried to push responsibility off onto my GP. Either keeps no records or fears recrimination. Further, despite the fact that this will be a "she said, he said" he insisted I gradually increase a psychiatric med, explaining persuasively that it wasn't soon enough to go full strength (despite my being on full strength for years) he then denied he said so. So I have two examples of lying. Please be careful and consider another HVMA

Hard to find a really good psycho-pharmacologist these days, but Dr McCabe is working out really well for me in handling chronic depression. Not much for talk-therapy, but he knows his pharmaceuticals and has been a very good listener for keying into my specific symptoms when prescribing responsibly. With high turnover in psych offices, he's been steady in place. I appreciate the consistency of care. He's been accessible by phone or portal email for questions or adjustments in prescription.

He is very rude to me, especially if I request for him to call me. There is no reason to talk to any patient that way he talks to me. Very unprofessional.
