Dr. Popkin is excellent in many ways. He is very easy to talk to and his presence is calming and understanding. He has a way of re-framing an issue that is exactly what feels right to your soul! He is excellent in managing my dosages of various medications because he listens very attentively, and therefore, his recommendations are just what I need. He also offers medication management without forever therapy and is quick to identify any changes that may need to happen with my meds.

Called for an appointment and spoke to an very prickly receptionist. She repeatedly emphasized that Dr Popkin gets phone calls everyday for new patients and that she didn't think she could ever fit me in. Just stating that you aren't accepting new patients would be sufficient- no reason to berate a patient seeking psychiatric services which can be a very difficult call to make.

I consider myself very fortunate to have been under the care of Dr. Popkin for going on 7+ years. I have no complaints regarding his work or care. He is no nonsense in his approach, uses session time wisely, and very in tune with my concerns and feedback. He has stabilized my condition to the extent that it can be with current medical knowledge. I have never felt that my mental health was not of his primary concern nor have I ever felt or been over medicated.
After 4 visits he couldn't get my name correct, pushes pills I specifically said I didn't want and was absurdly priced. Example of our health care system at work
It was and is wonderful. I feel safe and heard and I feel better when I leave his office.
