I spent over 15 years with depression and later discovered that I was bipolar. Dr. Mantz was truly the only psychiatrist (I have seen over 8) who has succeeded in helping me combat my depression holistically through nutrition, meditation, and some medication. Dr. Mantz is a compassionate and very non-judgmental professional. He combines nutrition, supplements, meditation and, when necessary, medication to successfully treat patients. Thank goodness I found Dr. Mantz!

I have worked with Dr. Mantz as a colleague treating individuals with addiction and co-occurring mental health issues. Dr. Mantz exhibits an open-minded approach; Dr. Mantz treats the individual rather than treating the disorder. Dr. Mantz, from my experience, strikes a healthy balance between Western Medicine and Naturalistic treatment weighing the cost and benefit and employing the best treatment for the individual and his or her situation. I recommend Dr Mantz without equivocation.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have referred several clients to Dr. Mantz, especially when there are concerns about using psychotropic medications. I prefer Dr. Mantz because of his informed, holistic approach--knowing when an alternative can be used, and when a more conventional approach is warranted. He is very collaborative, communicative, and eager to educate clients and therapists, so that everyone can make informed decisions.

I can't recommend Dr. Mantz highly enough! He's a gifted doctor - extremely intelligent, patient, non-judgemental, and takes the time to explain things clearly. He came highly recommended by a trusted friend, and I am so glad I started seeing him. It's been a game-changer.

Having been a provider and a consumer with a lifetime of experience with many different therapeutic modalities, my experience with Dr. Mantz and integrative psychiatry has been quite remarkable. Dr. Mantz is a psychiatrist that is able to connect with others, to work with the individual in whatever way the individual is available, and to have deep interest and concern in the well being of his patients. He is extremely skilled, and I highly recommend him to others seeking help.

Dr. Mantz is knowledgeable but incredibly judgemental and condescending. He's they type of Doctor that seems to feel he deserves your trust instead of that he has to earn it. I was terribly disappointed as he came highly recommended, but after my experience with him I stopped seeking treatment all together.

I've been Dr. Mantz's patient for several years; he has helped me immensely with my depression and anxiety. He is all the things you want your therapist to be: attentive, wise, thorough, understanding, and caring. He utilizes everything in his toolbox including his thorough knowledge of natural supplements, the latest psychological research, and different mindfulness/meditation practices to help his patients not only treat their disorder but come out even stronger. He's your doctor and coach.

Dr. Mantz combines the expertise of a psychiatrist and medical doctor with a comprehensive knowledge of integrative medicine, utilizing natural medicine, supplements, exercise, meditation, and adjusting of daily rhythms. Dr. Mantz is warm and empathetic and very responsive to questions that come up in between appointments. He keeps the treatment protocol simple, and, while he is versed in and experienced in psychopharmacology, you can trust Dr. Mantz not medicate unless they are necessary.
