Patient Comments (3)
I recently parted ways with Dr. Shugarman after 4 years. The main reason is that he started pushing ECT on me, which I wanted no part of. It was also often hard to convince him that the most recent med I was on was putting my anxiety on overload. However—he is kind, competent, and professional. He aggressively attempted to treat my illness with many different approaches (including a year-long fight with my insurance company) for which I am grateful. He is worth trying. I just needed a new route.

I have been seeing Dr. Sugarman for 3 years for Bipolar condition which I've had all my life. As an older person, I've seen a number of psychiatrists over my life while living in other states. He is the best. He understands the problems of older people as they work with bipolar disorder. His suggestions, recommendations, and medication prescriptions have always been helpful. I would recommend him to anyone.

I would not recommend Dr Shugarman for any outpt. tx. I saw him for a couple of visits and his MO is to use the training and/or internship he learned at St. Elizabeth's hospital in D.C. I found him to be very difficult to talk with and I have seen other psych docs in my life who listen, are flexible and willing to help each patient individually. Dr. Shugarman has much to learn about treating patients with mental illness on an individual basis and not group us all in the same category.
