Dr. Naimark has been patient, kind and caring to a family member. I’m a lawyer and am familiar with all “bad“ doctors; he isn’t one. Those who complain so much should leave. He is a highly qualified doctor and his contract is laid out ahead of time. Many practices are standard. He’s done wonders for many and has a lot of experience. You are lucky to be his patient. He saved our family’s collective sanity during difficult times. Medication is often a trial and error experience and even the right meds can take a while to show results. Unless you are seeing him as a therapist, you are there for medication management only. Insurance companies allow a few minutes billing. It’s up to you to get therapists records to him. He is great in my experience.

Dr. Naimark helped me through a very difficult time in my life. He enabled me to get through panic attacks with medication which then gave me the chance to work on the underlying problem. I am no longer taking any medication and I can manage my anxiety, thanks to him.

First and foremost, he was quite rude. Yes, I do sometimes speak too much and talk very fast due to my thoughts often racing in my head (either due to whatever diagnosis I have, still uncertain, or a medication i'm on); however, he would often interrupt me, indicating to me he was trying to get "things over with" or didn't have the time to listen to what I have to say. Secondly, he tried to suggest I have ADHD because I have restless leg syndrome (like my father) and tried to put me on concerta.

Dr. Naimark sees dollar signs when he should be seeing patients. He has too many patients to offer adequate care to anyone. He often makes mistakes with medications, doesn't follow up with insurance companies, doesn't listen, and misdiagnosed me after a 45 min psych eval where he kept cutting me off and then just started to ignore me. My diagnosis came at the very end of the visit when he had me answer several yes or no questions, and he said, "Yup that must be it" and threw meds at me. Waste

I have been very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Naimark. He is very proficient adjusting my meds to head off impending mood extremes related to my bipolar disorder. He has been treating me for five years. Don't expect casual conversation. He is direct and to the point. He does not substitute for a therapist. His role is solely to evaluate and prescribe. Warm and fuzzy is not what you need nor should you expect. However, he is expertly proficient at managing the brain chemistry.

Dr. Richard Naimark has been treating me for several years’ and it’s been very helpful. He’s a good listener and tries potential treatments until seeing a positive result(s). He perseveres and helps guide me to obtain a better quality of life. I’m not an easygoing person so his persistent nature shows he’s a patient and tenacious professional.

I am so grateful for the care I've received from Dr. Naimark. I've been seeing Dr. Naimark for many years and he has been instrumental in guiding the progress of my mental health care. He's available to me via regular appointments, as well as leaving a simple question for him on his voicemail - he calls me back the same day within a very reasonable amount of time. I trust his judgment.

Dr, Naimark has been for the most part a caring and efficient provider. He takes the time to listen and explain things. I have been seeing him for many years and only have had one incidence where I thought he dropped the ball. He carefully regulates my meds and I have been on an even keel for quite a while. I would recommend him to family and friends.

Dr.Naimark is only concerned about money.He's so quick with his appts that every time,he has made a mistake on a dose, the type or how long my child has been on it.At the end of this last apt,that he had mistaken the time my child has been on a dose by 3 MONTHS, he asked me to remind him of the scheduling of when he would be seeing my son again. At the end he pulled out a $115 bill saying we missed an appointment that I never made & said we are charged $10 every time we call in a script!Scammer!

This "doctor" could not care less about patients. Charges $90 for a 15 minute appointment that he will end after 3 minutes except to ask if you have paid all of your bills. He is definitely checked-out, doing this for $$ and I have not seen any evidence that he cares for patient well-being. I have tried to talk to him about experiences relating to why I am seeing him and he could not care less.

If you are looking for a doctor to see you for 5-10 minutes before handing you prescription without explanation and dor what may not even be appropriate or helpful medication then Dr. Naimark is your guy. But if you're seeking compassionate care by Doctor with empathy, who is willing to spend time listening to you, do not stop here.

He does not care about his patients. He put me on 6 medications and he asks what med do you think is work best I don't know...you're the doctor. Every session he asks about the bill, the only thing he cares about. I am going through some financial problems at the moment and set up a payment plan and that did not satisfy the man.He is now going to drop me as a patient b/c he wants the money ASAP. How can you just drop a patient while they are on so many medications? Greedy man.

I find Dr. Naimark to be very greedy! He charges $10 if you call and need a refill for your prescription. I had a $30 balance due to a deductible and he asked me if I was going to take care of my bill before I left! I have NEVER had a doctor talk to me about my bill. It was not even overdue or sent to me in the mail.

Bad experience. Took my teenage daughter to see him, but left within six months due to his inattentive attitude. His practice is a real assembly line - one patient after another, in and out ievery 15 minutes with script. At one point my daughter told him she was feeling much more depressed on a new medication and he responded let's give it a few more weeks without investigating whether she was having a bad reaction. Office is run down and in sketchy part of town.
