Dr. Insaf is fantastic and has helped our son a great deal. However, I must give him a poor rating due to his wife. She is EXTREMELY difficult to work with and has absolutely zero empathy for the patients she is working with on scheduling and billing. She is unnecessarily rude. The rest of the office staff and counselors are wonderful. She had our son so distressed that he had to sit in his car for some time to calm down and drive safely.

Thanks to Dr. Insaf I can finally thrive at my job. He found the medicine that works best for me and I am grateful. His office staff are attentive and help me with all of my needs. They check my insurance benefits, appeal any denials, handle prior authorizations and always call me back when I have questions. I've been seeing him for three years. I wouldn't go anywhere else. I love the front office girls. It is like seeing friends when I go. They call you by name and I like the casual atmosphere.

This man loves to prescribe meds, especially ADD meds. On my first visit he tried multiple approaches to lead me into believing I needed to be treated for attention deficit. This guy will prescribe medicine to wake you up, medicine to make you go to sleep, antidepressants supplemented with an antipsychotic such as Abilify while all the time telling you it's temporary and eventually your brain will "heal" itself however my friends who see him are still on the same meds as they were for 6 years.

Superb clinical and interpersonal skills. Spends time really getting to know what's going on with you and then zeros in on what to do about it. Drills down into things you say about your life and appropriately uses this information to inform his decisions. Office staff is unbelievably good about communicating with you.

I have been a patient of Dr. Insaf for approximately 4 years. He is very trustworthy and professional. He is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to listen. More important, he really cares about his patients. He uses many resources in the treatment of his patients. He offers genetic testing, SPECT scan, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and other non conventional treatments.

Dr. Isaf is world trained, has an encyclopedic knowledge of medications, will titrat drugs slowly, will not ovwrmedicate you, beliwves in some alternative therapy that's been tested, and his therapy style is very open, honest and perceptive. You'll never catch him looking at his watch.

Dr insaf is up to date on the latest interventions. I've been on anti depressants for over 25 years without much long term effect. He did a gene test on me , which is a mouth swab which gives them an indication on which types of medicines will be effective for you. Come to find out the routine Antidepressants I've been on most my life wouldn't work for me because I didn't have the neccessary transport gene for the ssri to work. So he put me on the old antidepressants,maoi depression free now
