I have been taking my daughter to the top specialists in Los Angeles for the past three years and Dr. Cherkasky has by far the most compassionate, caring, and effective doctor we have seen. He actually TAKES THE TIME to really listen to what is going on and he follows up to make sure the the medication is working. We especially appreciate his conservative approach to medication. Where most doctors just want to put you on this that and the other, Dr. Cherkasky has a more holistic approach.

Dr. Cherkasky is one of the best psychiatrists in Los Angeles. I have been a family therapist working in LA for almost 30 years and I have dealt with many MDs for my own clients. Dr. Cherkasky takes excellent care of his patients. He really listens carefully and shows real empathy towards his patients. My clients always tell me how lucky they feel to be under his care.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
