Just had our first appt today with the nurse practitioner and it was the worst doctor appt experience I've had in my life. This appt was for my 5 year old to discuss possible ADHD, and possible treatment options. I've worked as a medical professional in adult neurology and neurosurgery for 4 years, and have had ADHD my entire life. I have a very firm grasp on this subject and quality standard patient care.

I cannot state enough how horrible my experience with Dr. Pesikoff has been. His receptionist was extremely unhelpful and rude to me when I needed to get my prescription refilled. I was never given calls back that I was promised. His office has proven that my mental health has no importance to them and I, as a person have no value. I have waited over a month to try to get an appointment but can't because one receptionist refused me service and no one else will speak to me.
