Northridge, CA |
Dr. Pakier is a good listener, which puts him miles ahead of most doctors. He has done an excellent job of managing my depression and anxiety. Best of all, he looks and sounds like Dr. Kroger from "Monk." I recommend him without reservation.
in Tarzana, CA |
I first met Dr. Pakier in 2009. I was very ill but at the time I was unsure what my diagnosis was. My first impressions were that I was going to receive a level of psychiatric care unlike anything I had before. He is thorough, and patient, and actually listens to me. I am bipolar but I was taking almost all of the wrong meds at bad doses. He unwound the treatment and replaced my meds until we found the right fit. We work well together as a team. I credit him for saving my life.
