Very knowledgeable about medical treatments. Treating me for over 15 years. He has an excellent memory of past sessions and medical history. Listens and adjusts treatment as needs change. He also helped me control cognitive issues (rumination...) Most recommend for those who take an active role in treatment.

His personality is moderately bizarre (though likable) but he is extremely, extremely knowledgeable. Terrifyingly good memory for diagnostic criteria and drug effects/side effects/interactions. Good to talk to, too. Scheduling or rescheduling regular appointments can be somewhat difficult as his schedule is usually extremely full, but he has always been able to work something out, in my experience.
