Very professional and the most knowledgable and accurate diagnostician and psych medication specialist you will find north of NYC.
in Fishkill, NY |
Dr. Van Aken is very knowledgeable and attentive to my needs. He listens and genuinely does all he can to help me deal with what I'm going through. He explains things thouroughly and ensures satisfaction at every appointment.

Many years experience, very knowledgeable. Can be a little difficult getting late appointments.

Doctor himself is very knowledgeable and excellent with prescriptions. Staff is horrific. They are incredibly rude. It's nearly impossible to get medication refills. If you call the office they give you another number where you leave a voicemail and they check it after like a week. Even if it's urgent. I recently went in for an appointment and they told me the doctor was on vacation. They argued that they called me when they definitely did not. I am now out of medication and no one will answer.

Great start, seemd like real help, counsel and therapy. Then abruptly, cut off. Dr. wouldn't permit a final appointment to see him. His staff and the entire office circle their wagons around whatever is decided, no thought to its effect on the patient. Top to bottom rude and change their story often as suits them. I do not believe their words, and given the patient-doctor relationship Dr. VanAken could have met me and told me himself.Highly unprofessional, highly rude, highly unreliable. Horrid.

Do NOT seek medical advice from this psychiatrist. Very poor bedside manner..gives you 5 minutes..poor listening skills.
