Dr. Sussal is outstanding and a very caring individual. You get the time you need and his advice which is always helpful and honest. You may have to wait a while on your appointmemt date when you arrive but it is worth it. The one drawback is he has a number of offices now and may be spreading himself too thin between them.
To his credit, he saw me within 2 days of contacting him because I was in a very bad state of depression and needed professional help. He was able to stabilize me. However, our personalities clashed and I found his no nonsense approach to be unhelpful when I was in such a fragile emotional state. I took a lot of his comments very hard and found them hurtful. I am probably in the minority when it comes to the all-American pick yourself up and get going approach, though. Left after 6 months.
