Horrible Experience
Horrible experience. I was looking for a doctor to get an evaluation for my teenage children. We spoke on the phone as she said she wanted to make sure it would be the right fit. We had a long in-depth conversation and she said she was looking forward to working with my family and that she was excited to meet us all in person. The plan was that I was going to email her after we get back from vacation. I emailed her according to plan and she asked what the ages of the children were again and what I was looking for. I thought this was strange since we had had this in-depth conversation a month ago but I emailed her with the information. After not getting back to me for two weeks, I emailed her again and she said she’s not seeing children anymore. What??? It’s very difficult to get into Psychiatry offices these days And I needed the evaluation by August 15th. Not a good sign when a Psychiatrist is a flake!!

I would not rely on any of these positive reviews. I first met with Dr. Sagan in 2019, and at the beginning of my very first appointment she pressured me to give her a 5 star review on this site, before she’d ever even treated me! I was in a vulnerable state and desperate for help, so I created a glowing fake review as she requested. Fortunately that review has since been removed, but I know for a fact that she had many other patients do the same thing. I’ve never met another medical doctor so lacking in basic integrity. I was very motivated to begin treatment, so against my better judgment, I continued seeing her. What a mistake. Without a confirmed diagnosis, she began piling on medications, to the point I was soon taking 15 per day. I was so messed up from the meds that I realized I was worse off with “treatment” than without. Dr. S is more interested in getting prescription kickbacks than the well-being of her patients. She is dangerously irresponsible. Avoid at all costs!

I've worked with Dr. Sagan for almost a year now. During my first appointment, I felt understood in a way I never had before. The depth of her intuition and knowledge is refreshing and sets her apart from other psychiatrists I've worked with in the past. Her understanding has made the tedious and sometimes painful process of finding the right combination of treatments much more bearable.

Upon walking into Dr. Sagan's office I felt a very warm and loving energy, making me feel safe at a time when I had very little trust in others. I immediately felt seen and heard in a way that was much more profound than a person is usually able to offer. Part of this is because there are no boxes to fit into with Dr. Sagan, she sees you as an individual and as a whole person. Symptoms and patterns are not the end game - she goes beyond that to take into account your unique life path, energy and spiritual body. Her highly intuitive, expansive nature allows her to prescribe medications that work quickly and effectively without having months of trial and error. Beyond her brilliance as a medical professional, Dr. Sagan is one of the most genuine, authentic, loving people I have ever met. She has saved my life and changed my life by quickly correcting my brain chemistry and allowing all the space, patience and guidance I needed to align with my authentic self and shift out of the reactivi
