Horrible!!! I have been trying for 5 days to get someone to communicate with me. Tiffany his assistant send incomplete emails and never solves the problems/issues at hand. My son has gone 5 days without meds because they Dr will only fill a 30 day supply until his next appointment which is 5/5 and this was an urgent request. the insurance only covers 90 day supplies and I don't have $892 to pay for the 30 day supply. THIS IS IMPACTING MY SONS HEALTH AND WELFARE!!!!!

Hey, if you need a psychiatrist, I'm going to tell you where not to go. Do not go to Dr. Sussal's office in Greenbelt, MD. I have been trying to get an appointment just for medication management for over a month. They have not returned my calls or emails! If I go out and strangle someone, it's because I have no meds

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.
