Dr. B not only saved my life but he continues to keep me on the right track and he really cares about his patients. He is brilliant, keeping up on the latest research and lecturing on topics of his interest, he knows everything, has seen it all before, and offers doable and practical and easy to understand advice when I need it. Don't get me wrong. He is strict but compassionate when it comes to addiction. But he has to be, as that is the only way to beat it. hds me accountable for my choices.
