He was recommended to me for anxiety disorder. He is so calm and peaceful, it helps me talk about things that are bothering me. If I had to change psychiatrist, I'd be very disappointed.

Dr. Hazel is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate about helping his patients. He is head and shoulders above my last psychiatrist. Yes, his schedule fills up rapidly, but he's worth waiting for, in my opinion. Thank you, Dr. Hazel, for helping me manage my care.

I chose to make an appt. w/Dr. Hazel because of reviews & endorsements as 1 of top 3 psychiatrist in area.I made my appointment 1st week of September & unfortunately he was not available for a new patient appointment 'til Oct. 10th. I understood this as those who are great are obviously hard to get into. I called on Sept. 22nd to confirm and it was confirmed.On the following Monday,I received a message-cancelled as he won't be in &rescheduling for the week after. It's a human beings health.
