Absolutely awful doctor, prescribes the same medications for most of his patients, won't listen to your concerns, won't even look you in the eye when you're telling him about the negative side effects of your medications, has caused years of mistrust in psychiatrists. Horrible man!

He is terrible. Don't dare question his judgement, he will snap on you like a rattlesnake. He does not believe you when you tell him what side effects his prescribed medications cause.
