What People Say About Dr. Richard Corelli, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am baffled by positive reviews about talk therapy. He makes you come in once a week and sits there silent while you talk, offering NO insight. maybe even sleeping with his eyes open. how can one tell? total rubbish. switched to actual therapist with actual techniques. Doing their job. what a scam he runs.

In less than one minute, I explained my desperation to Dr. Corelli, asking if he could help me. He then asked me if I heard his instructions about filling out paperwork and refused to answer my question. Knowing I am paying cash for an appointment, I will not be paying for lack of compassion in a desperate time.

I tried to make an appointment with Dr Corelli. He sent me a large amount of paperwork to fill out ahead of time, including the top half of a claim form (which, as a physician myself, I have never made a patient fill out). He also required me to sign a statement that I would pay his full rate of $150/hr for every missed/cancelled appointment for which he did not receive a week's advance notice. I didn't sign it, so he wrote me back a tersely worded email refusing to accept me as a patient.

Terrific experience, and ongoing. I've been w Dr Corelli for about 6 years- originally to help me stop making stupid choices (I have) and now to stay on track. I never had therapy before and was surprised how little Corelli spoke- he mostly gave small prompts- which I needed in order to make my own decisions and understand consequences. I know nothing about Corelli, and this made it surprisingly easy to be honest and confident. Corelli's great. I can't recommend him or his style any higher.

Dr. Corelli's training, insight and skilled ability at honing in on not only my initial diagnosis, but also key issues needing addressed, has opened up a new world for me; one I never thought existed. Through weekly psychotherapy, and compliance on my end, we've been able to work through both the minor issues, and the initial breakthroughs of self discovery that has helped me succeed in not only personal life, but also, life. I would recommend him to any adult seeking the aforementioned.

I have seen Dr. Correlli for over six months. Through weekly therapy and medication he has helped me manage my symptoms of bipolar significantly. His manner is taciturn, but I find the results very helpful.

I see Dr. Corelli since about 5 years ago. During this time, I think the psychotherapy sessions with him helped me a lot in dealing with my condition. Dr. Corelli is very helpful in giving me feedback about my experiences and I feel that I can trust him in sharing my thoughts and feelings.

Dr. Corelli is the first psychiatrist I have seen so I do not have any experience with other doctors with which to compare. In my experience, he is very insightful and thoughtful and often helps me see things with a new perspective.
