I just had my first appointment with Dr. Kugel- I almost went with a different doctor because of the reviews here but, thought I should not rely on that alone and I am so glad I went because I think he was great, very knowledgeable, explained things very clearly, spent a lot of time talking to me, was very empathetic. I am really happy I feel like I found a great psychiatrist.

No professionalism. Questions a patient's former doctor on qualification to give treatment and questions medication prescribed. Does not verify medications currently being taken and insists on stopping those medications right away and replacing it with his own prescription. Has no empathy and compassion for patient with depression and anxiety and minimizes severity of symptoms.
