Dr. Michael Hanau is both an exceptional Psychiatrist and a great human. He saw my son when he was in crisis with debilitating OCD and treated him so perfectly. He is so smart and knows OCD and the medications to use perfectly. My son got so much better under his care and we will both be forever grateful that he was under Dr. Hanau’s care.

Dr Hanau is a terrific psychiatrist and person. As a physician myself I am in a unique position to judge. He is kind and very knowledgeable. He was of enormous help to me when I was in severe crisis. I always felt he was with me on my journey through my difficult time. I hold him in the highest regard and anyone fortunate enough to be his patient is fortunate indeed.

Dr. Hanau is unusual in his field due to the importance he places on relationship to the patient. The sort of person who, when they are in front of you, appear wholly focused on you. He appears especially well-informed on many aspects of drugs therapies for different conditions...novel and historic.
