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!

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.
