Trumbull, CT |
Wow. Where to begin. Let me tell you, this guy is not the one you want to see. He belongs straight out of a movie. His behavior was like that of the mother in Requiem for a Dream, if you've ever seen it. He was grimacing (?), stuttering, and shaking the entire time, not to mention he was facing me with his eyes closed (or barely open) the entire time. I had to keep myself from laughing, but at the same time felt a good amount of concern, and was wondering if I should ask him if HE was okay.

Very strange behavior bordering on rude. Not organized, made me wait 30 minutes for my appointment and when I was finally in his office asked me to go wait outside so he could take a call. Then stated I didn't have an appointment, which he finally found on his schedule. Asked me "Are you crazy"? What kind of professional would act this way? I think he needs psychological help more than I do.
in Fairfield, CT |
Spent very little time (less than 10 minutes) with me as a patient, one visit my appointment was delayed by him almost 1 hours, and then overcharged me citing the visit was longer than normal.

He has helped me get my life totally back on track I am forever grateful.I was doubtful that things would change and he has supported me and helped me to see a great future ahead.

I've seeing him for 7 years now. I have been extremely happy with the service he has provided me over these years. Unlike most psycmds, who's just see you for a few minutes and give you a script for the latest drug the Pharma companies are pushing; Dr Schneider takes the time to listen to you, work with you on what meds would be best for your condition in a collaborative manner; Without having to deal w/ a ego-centric doctor Who just gives you a script and tells you to take it. No discussion..
