I had my doubts before making an appointment with a psychiatrist. Dr. Worthalter answered all of my questions. Gave me the pros and cons of psychotropic medications. Sometimes people hate hearing the truth and I'm glad Dr. Worthalter was honest and confronted me with about my destructive behavior. If you're depressed, look for a professional that will tell you the truths, even those you don't want to hear. Dr. Worthalter is a professional in what he does. He definitely helped me. I'll keep being under his treatment.

BEWARE!!!. This individual is a DISGRACE TO THE MEDICAL professon. His careless irreverent behavior towards patients is appalling. A true insult to the Hippocratic oath all doctors should pledge and observe. He's been seeing my mother for over 15 years now, and since she's been under his "care", the downward spiral and the multiple crisis she's suffered are overwhelmingly alarming. His attitude towards her suffering has been, at best, insultingly indifferent and erratic. Do yourselves a favor and avoid this sorry excuse of what a caring humanely sensible psychiatrist should be.

My son has ADHD and this has affected his learning progress. Dr. Peysaf asked my son if he was feeling overwhelmed and distracted. Definitely he was and this was affecting his daily tasks. Since he medicated my son we began to see drastic improvements (Immediately.) My son could see it was a problem of focusing in one task. It was very difficult for him. I recommend this doctor. Go full of questions he will answer your doubts or concerns.

had to wait a while (3 weeks) to get my first appointment as a new patient. they provide free parking, office is clean and organized, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Dr. Peysaf Worthalter was very kind, and seemed very knowledgeable and experienced. I have been to other psychiatrists and I would say he is the most experienced and smartest one I have spoken with. I am college educated and have a minor in psychology so you have a better idea of who is leaving this review.
