I appreciate the fact that Dr. Valenti promotes diet and exercise as the most important aspects of healthy living and tries to keep medication to the minimum, effective dose. My experience with most doctors is that they do not even mention diet and exercise and want to put their patients on too many meds.

Dr. Valente was a nice enough doctor that seemed concerned and qualified to treat my already diagnosed bipolar disorder and addiction recovery. He claimed to have a photographic memory and then proceeded to prescribe the psych meds I had already been taking with excellent results for 3 yrs., incorrectly, repeatedly. My insurance refused to pay for the message after they had been dispensed and it was very stressful and time consuming trying to get the matter resolved. I eventually left.

After spending years trying to help my brother get appropriate care, we finally found Dr. Valente. He has been the only doctor to really take the time needed to develop a realistic plan! He listened, he explained, he was compassionate, and we didnt feel like a number waiting for the time slot to end and be dismissed. I know these doctors have restrictions but Dr. Valente did everything humanly possible to help my loved one. He is the most caring doctor I have dealt with EVER!
