Terrible. I agree with the majority of these reviews. It is clearly about money and medicine to him rather than the well-being of a patient. He is intimidating, uncomfortable to talk to, cold, demeaning, and literally told me to just answer the questions because he has other patients to see. I do not recommend this doctor for anyone’s psychiatric needs.
