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.

Very knowledgable about my condition. Took time to explain my options to me and considered my feelings before making a recommendation. Pretty much everything I wanted in a psychiatrist

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.
