      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
