This doctor messed me up. High dose ketamine infusions and his angry demeanor left me suicidal. He was very reckless. Please avoid at all costs.

One of the best psychiatrists in the US. He has helped many of my most complex patients. He has skills with a huge repertoire of techniques and stays up on a tremendous range of approaches, knowing as he does many of the original creator/scientist practitioners. Like me, he reads voraciously on a very wide range if topics and has a network of friends and fellows who are top folks in many areas. He is hard-nosed and careful. He is loving and faithful. If self-assured, well-informed, bright, and tough work for you, go see him.

Dr. Best treated my depression. As an adolescent with depression that is in our family’s genetic profile I found Dr. Best to be extremely helpful and he has turned my life around where I am eager to participate in activities and express all my talents.

I have been a patient of Dr. Best for over 4 years. I have found him to be the most knowledgeable psychiatrist that I have encountered in visits with nearly 10 docs over the duration of my illness. Dr. Best uses the full spectrum of therapies that are available and is highly cognizant of all the most current research. Dr. Best has truly been a godsend for my entire family.

I found Dr Best a brilliant doctor! He has an incredible ability to determine meds. Besides myself, I sent many other people to his practice. We were all on helpful medications the first time out. Considering they say it can take 20 years to be properly diagnosed & treated last I knew. I received TMS treatments which saved my life! Literally! Anyone who has had treatment resistant depression should consider TMS treatments. It was painless & I had a couple side effects which were temporary.

Dr. Best is very knowledgeable and works hard for the patient. He is very controlling regarding his opinions and he can too helpful. Patients must work to keep in a positive dynamic with him. He can be unforgiving. It doesn’t always work out. Good luck.

This doctor is AMAZING. He is great at what he does, his testing is extensive and he is not one to just put you straight to the meds! He actually tries to keep his patients off medications with many other treatment options. I have been in his care for a few months and already have shown MAJOR improvement. He is able to treat properly, not like the other doctors who just shoved medications down my throat and wasted my hard earned money.

I have read others' reviews on this site and I simply cannot understand how negative some people are. Anyone who has said his treatments are too expensive and he is in it for the money are horribly mistaken. He does not advertise his work or his clinic. Dr. Best sees and works with some of the most difficult cases around the U.S. He saved my life. The girl at the front desk is very fast at getting back to patients and will do anything to help with insurance and/or accommodations.
