I've been a patient of Dr. Pesikoff since the early 2000s. He's a superior psychiatrist, very highly respected, very responsive, has more than forty years' experience, and has a highly professional and cordial staff. I'm very, very pleased and have no criticism whatsoever.

Dr. Pesikoff saved my life. I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child when my family lived in Houston. We went through multiple doctors and meds without success. Most of the doctors we saw were only interested in using meds to make real changes. But Dr. Peskioff really helped us to understand what having ADHD meant for both me and my family. He taught us useful skills and coping strategies and helped me process my feelings. I am so grateful for everything he did for me. I’ve gone on to lead a successful life thanks to the work we did as a kid. I’m a college graduate, happily married, and running my own business. I wouldn’t be who I am today if it weren’t for this man.

Awful customer service. When requests are sent in it is always delayed. I have to call in to ask them to do it anyway. Today, I called in after sending the prescription through the portal and they said there was a message left for me in the portal that I had to make an appointment and that they are not allowed to call or email me to let me know. Not once have we seen Dr. Pesikoff. The receptionist is RUDE! Stay far away from this place.

Be aware - doctor and office manager centric (king and queen) vs patient centric. Don’t datebook have real patient issues.
