This guy acts like I'm a third class citizen. I go there for anxiety and have, on several occasions cried leaving his office. He has far too many people being scheduled, and takes long with them, but sees me for all of ten minutes and basically throws pills as me and sees me in 3 months.

He is amazing. Calm and easing to the soul. A Christian man of high morals and a positive attitude. First doc in 16 years to get me on the right meds at the right levels. Trust his judgement completely. Cautious to write prescriptions.
