Very understanding and helpful. Easy to work with. If you take meds, you know that the right combination and dosage are a moving target. Dr Rochester is very experienced at finding the right mix for my needs as they change. He is very responsive to phone calls if you need him. I recommend without reservation.

Excellent and let me add he's probably saved my life with his knowledge and staff who really "get it" when it comes to people like myself who need help. Dr. Rochester is on the cutting edge both for meds and TMS which has given me my like back. I am humbled and grateful to him and his staff.

Dr. Rochestor is someone rare in psychiatry. He actively listens, & truly does care about his patients. Even at my most difficult times, and in various stages of grief - he spoke to me respectfully & not once did he ever talk down to me. I know there are time limits at appointments, yet I never felt rushed. I also did Trans Cranial Magnetic Therapy last summer for unrelenting depression, and it has lifted a heaviness from me. I feel like it's a new start. His staff are professional & friendly.

I just would like to say Dr. Rochester and his staff are amazing!!! They gave us hope for my daughter who has suffered from depression for several years. I was able to see a smile come back to her eyes and as a mother that feeling was overwhelming. Dr. Rochester, Michelle and Melody were always very attentive to her during her treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Rochester and his staff and TMS treatment. Thank you Dr. Rochester for giving us hope and a brighter future.

Dr. Rochester has been my physician since 2001. He has consistently been excellent in any and all aspects of my treatment. I tried several medications until he found the one that worked best for me. He always takes the time to listen and has a true concern and interest in his patients. Dr. Rochester is a gentleman and a scholar. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Rochester and his team have gone above and beyond their call of duty to assure that my treatment and medications are working for me and that I continue to improve. Even when I gave up, they didn't. He and his team are easy to deal with, friendly and confident. They instill confidence in me that they know what they are doing and are doing all they can for me. deciding to come to him is the best decision I've ever made.

Thought he was a godsend. Worked in tweaking my medication until we had it just right. Saw him for a couple of years - always impressed with his professionalism and memories of my specific situation. Then, my life fell apart when my Mom and Dad died within three months of each other - All aspects of my life, including paying bills or even opening mail. Unbeknownst to me, I had a past due balance of $125. Once I finally opened the bill, I paid immediately. He refused to see me again. Devastating

Dr. Rochester is very cool. He really listens and remembers, and it's like a pleasant visit with an old friend. He doesn't talk down to me, and he has this consistently calm, intelligent, gentlemanly professional manner that inspires my confidence and trust. He explains things in a useful way that allows me to make sense of my experiences, he allows me input into my treatment decisions by giving me options to choose, and he's NEVER impatient. He has a great reputation with other docs, too.
