I saw Dr. Selassie for a number of years. I was troubled and that wasn't his fault. However when I had a very bad breakdown, he proved himself to be cold and unsympathetic. He prescribed me Lithium and was very cold and didn't explain it. I was stunned he wanted to prescribe such an intense medication and ceased our professional relationship. Since breaking our communication, I've found a therapist whose amazing and a new psychiatrist who doesn't try and sedate me against my will

An excellent psychiatrist for both adults, teenagers and children of both sexes. He takes his time and offers practical wellness suggestions along with appropriate medication(s). He is very skilled at his craft and takes all types of insurances. He is very concerned about his patients and always follows up during a crisis or hospitalization.

Horrible. Arrogant and unethical

I have to say I was floored. I heard so many good things about Dr. Selassie that I thought it couldn't be true. The three other psychiatrists I've seen were all about numbers and had no emotion to them. Selassie cares. And he showed so much emotion and professionalism. 10/10
