Dr Vinekar was recommended by my old psychiatrist who retired in 2013 & said he believed he was the best in the state Since being under Dr Vinekars care since 2013 I agree that he is the best For years I was misdiagnosed until my old Dr properly diagnosed me I've tried many different meds & Dr Vinekar didnt give up on me until we found the right 1 for my depression He is very thorough, listens & truly cares. I FINALLY have my life back thanks to Dr Vinekar I would higly recommend him to others.

Was prescribed a prescription from Dr. Vinekar, and the prescription was fine, and the initial visit was relatively painless. However, after the third visit, they stopped scheduling me and they refused to fax the pharmacy my prescription, and wouldn't reschedule until about half a year later. That's a long period to go without a prescription with very intense withdrawal symptoms. By definition, this is malpractice. Needless to say, the experience with my psychiatrist is driving me crazy.
