If he lets you get a word in that would be nice. All he cares about is billing insurance almost $300 for a so called “therapeutic session which consisted of a 15 minute conversation and about ten dollars worth of medicine in his draw. Guy is a real class act, he didn’t even had my file with him the lady at the desk bought it to him while he was just going on from his memory, he did had a folder though to pretend it was mine. It’s 50/50 with him he can help you but also not the best

My experience with Dr. Litwin was excellent. I saw him when he was a psychiatrist at CPC in Freehold. He went up and beyond what was required. He addressed my many physical issues which were impacting my mental health. He understood we are not separate parts, but a whole person. He addressed my various neuropathies and facial pain/trigeminal neuralgia/TMG, which were having a very detrimental affect on me. He also spent more than the allotted time when it was necessary. I highly recommend him.
