Run. And run far away. I saw Dr. Marciniak for 4 years to treat my bipolar disorder. He is a cold person and his office is one big "cattle call" of patients. He is bored, uninterested and I never felt listened to or believed. He loves to belittle patients and the straw that broke the camel's back was when he answered a personal call during my appointment. I knew it was because he started mentioning scuba gear! He is an awful psychiatrist and I'm so glad I found someone else.

I will not return to this Dr. He refused to help me. I needed a script to be rewritten. He refused. Therefore I won't be getting enough medicine. How does that make sense Dr. Marciniak? My levels will continue to stay low until I get a new script.

I had a good experience being his patient for several years. However, his office staff were consistently unpleasant and uncooperative with reasonable requests. He agreed to treat my spouse and myself by phone while we were traveling. When I called anout a prescription, his receptionist told me he NEVER provides telephone care, no exceptions. I cancelled our "telephone visits" and now have no psychiatrist. Talk about violating trust and dumping patients! Still don't know if he lied or forgot.

I saw Dr. Marciniak for years, and it's true...this is his JOB, not his hearts passion. He is not a personable doctor, and very into himself, but he's smart and knows drugs - which is what I want in a doctor. He's not there to be my friend. He's there to give me treatment. Now his staff - boo. The entire office leaves much to be desired. However, if you want a knowledgeable provider and don't need the warmth, he's really good. Don't miss an appt because they will charge you REGARDLESS.
The office staff and psych are the worst I've ever encountered who only care about making $ and could care less about their patients. No calls to advise patients even if they're experiencing extremely negative reactions to meds. If anyone was suicidal it would be on this psychiatrist's hands for not getting back to patients in a timely manner until the next appt weeks later. And others wonder why most of us don't get treated for mental illness, cause of people like this who are in the field.
