Best doctor I have had in the 15 years I have had serious issues. Listens and is incredibly knowledgable and makes all easy to comprehend

I see Marilyn at the office she's wonderful and understanding and caring
in Melrose, MA |
Excellently doctor! He really listens and does not try to push any medications on you that you don't want to try. Caring and empathetic- so glad I found him. Highly recommend.

Many local patients also lie about their drinking or their other habits while taking medicine and whine about effects of medicines he/any doctor prescribes. He prescribed a poorly marketed but effective medicine for me and cautioned about other drug like medicines marketed aggressively that i thought i would need. he was right when he let me try.. Just tell the truth and listen doctors & lawyers if you want to have better life. He is a foreigner & easily misjudged. I know the personality.

Truly the worst experience I've ever had with a medical professional; exceedingly proud and completely refuses to listen - repeated the phrases 'I'm the doctor, and you're the patient' and 'I can't explain psychiatry to you' over and over again in response to questions that I felt were quite fair. Told me I could leave if I didn't like his answers, after maybe my third question. I really need help, he let me down completely.
