Dr T has been in the psych business for nearly three decades. He is highly knowledgeable. He takes the time to explain the diagnosis and treatment options. He listens carefully and patiently in order to make the best decision possible. I trust him.

My daughter has been with Dr. T for almost ten years now . He is kind and caring, incredibly responsive, and has always been calm and reassuring through what can feel like very tumultuous times.

Greeted by secretary informing me they do not take insurance. I already knew this, not a problem. Asked what I was coming for. I said anxiety. She asked what specifically I was coming in for. I felt uncomfortable discussing these issues any further with a secretary. She said it was necessary because She takes the intakes. I said I'd rather discuss it with the doctor. She said, Ok, I'll have the doctor call you. 2 weeks go by and no call. I call. They say it's $450 for visit.
