Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Astruc is an excellent psychiatrist and has formed an excellent practice, he was the first psychiatrist to ever get me stable. I'm now seeing Amanda Bernard, psych nurse practitioner, since his practice expanded and he offloaded his more stable clients to the NP's. She's excellent as well and I'm generally much more comfortable with woman-identified and non-binary-identified providers. Great practice! Have never met the other NP, so can't speak to her for or against at all. Neither Dr. Astruc nor Amanda gets ruffled or freaked out by much of anything, they're the most competent and knowledgeable providers I've ever worked with (sample size embarrassingly large!)--and if you treat them with respect and human dignity, you will get the same in return, and a great deal of empathy and compassion as well! One comment about finding their new office is the sign that says "Dr. Manuel Astruc & Associates" is SO tiny and easy to miss! Not so much an issue now because pandemic, but just fyi.

Dr. Astruc is an excellent psychiatrist. He doesn’t only prescribe medication, he offers tips and advice and explains them with stories. He’s also not afraid to go outside medication parameters which has helped me tremendously. He was right on point with what I needed after years of trying different medicines. Always takes me in on time and I never feel rushed out by him like the other person said on here. He is very serious about his job and that makes him very good.

I was a patient of Dr. Astruc's for 3 yrs: Right after my bipolar diagnosis, until I moved last year. I had so much confidence in his decisions, and he really helped me to stabilize. He also educated my family and me about what the disorder means. After I was stabilized, we slowly cut down on the heavier meds to improve my quality of life. I am so grateful he was my doctor! For about a year, I was out of state at college & the transition from him to school psychiatrist back to him went well

Dr. Astruc is very professional. He is also very pleasant to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone. I've seen him for 13 years and wouldn't go anywhere else.
