What People Say About Dr. Shirley Sostre Oquendo, MD

My child has been going to Dr Oquendo for about 3-4 years. We've seen many doctors, and quite a few psychiatrists. She is the best psych doctor I've ever been to. She takes her time getting to know her patient and their caretaker/parent before writing a prescription out. I have full trust she knows my child well enough for a valid opinion. Never feel rushed or blown off, which is common during a psychiatric appointment. Highly recommend her.

Excellent doctor for both of my children. Speak with me as equal and patiently review their care with me in detail until I am comfortable with the treatment.

My husband was treated by Dr. Shirley Sostre Oquendo in the past and she was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, caring, and her treatment was effective. I would definitely recommend her and will be seeking her professional help once more with my son. We are looking forward to seeing her again and are very hopeful she will help us.

No, she is not cold. She absolutely cares. But she calls BS when she sees it, and is perfectly straightforward with the patient. Doesn't coddle, doesn't mess around. Dr. Sostre is the best psydoc I've had and she really knows what she's talking about. She understands the nuances of mental health as a topic, knows medication and diagnoses like the back of her hand, and uses all of her knowledge and experience to give you the most real, honest, and effective treatment you'll find in the area.

She was direct to the point of being extremely rude and insulting. She kept interrupting as well. Will not return.

I waited 25 minutes to see her and she spent 30 minutes with me for a first time visit. Kept interrupting me when I was speaking. This doctor was very cold and not caring at all. I will not be going back
