His office help is very poor but he makes it all worth it. After I finally got in he got straight to the point and helped me immediately. Best psychiatrist I have every been through. Well worth putting up with his office staff!

Kindest, straightforward Doctor. Definitely sent from g-d. There should be more smart doctors like Dr. Stephen Signer..

Doctor signer is a phenomenal Doctor. However the captain can't run a ship on his own. Unfortunately he has terrible staff like maribelle, who will place you on hold fo 20 minutes, while you can hear her conversation with another patient. It is very unprofessional, and is also invading privacy of the patients.

Dr. Signer spends a fair amount of time talking about himself and seems to enjoy showing off his intellect and wit versus really getting to know his patients.
