What People Say About Dr. Michael Banov, MD

I've been a patient for 5 years. I never even met Dr. Banov, but I can tell you about one of his APRNs (psychiatric nurses). Most of the time she acted like she would rather be anywhere else than helping me. Her demeanor was always flat and more than a little condescending. The truth of the matter is that this is the epitome of assembly line psychiatry. If you are looking for true compassion and empathetic treatment, you need to look elsewhere.

Dr Banove and the staff at Northwest Behavioral Medicine are proffesional in every aspect of this practice. The atmosphere in the waiting area is quite relaxed. The ladies at the check-in desk are friendly and adept at discreetly handling general questions or concerns a patient might initially have. Dr Banov is wonderful in that he listens to his patients, makes helpful observations that get at the heart of the problem. It is evident that he stays current with research into new drugs and treatment options. Dr Banov encourages his patients to look beyond the prescription and employ actions that do not rely on medication alone but work along side them. After being his patient for more than 10 years I highly recommend him.
