This dr is a pill farm , and his office staff is even worse. The receptionists are legit CRAZY. They should probably be medicated.... they leave nasty voicemails and hang up on you often, demand payment before dr will consider a refill- even when the dr is the one to cancel the appt., they absolutely are incompetent. I truly hope they read these reviews, I’m sure they’ve lost many patients because of the things I’ve mentioned. And I honestly hope I prevent future patients from trying this place.

He is a pill pusher. Fifteen-?minute appointments with almost no interaction, then more medication is prescribed at each visit. Terrible about getting back to you. I don't know that he is a horrible person, but he is truly a horrible psychiatrist?. He told me that I could quit taking my medications with no problem, and I went through horrible withdrawal which he was "puzzled" by. I stopped seeing him several years ago, found somebody wonderful to help me and have never looked back.

At one appointment Dr. Cullinane asked me, ' How long has it been since the divorce?'. I was stunned because I told him at my first appointment that my husband died of suicide. He has people fill out a survey about how they are feeling. I marked the box that said I felt awful and hopeless. His responded by increasing the dose of my current medicine and telling me to schedule an appointment in 2 months. I found another doctor who correctly diagnosed my illness.

Terrible/horrible experience here. At least twice while I was en route to my appointment (fighting traffic the whole time) I was called and told the doctor wasn't going to be in an I needed to reschedule - and another time I was called the day before. While they do nothing to ease this burden on you, the office staff will be incredibly nasty and rude to you on the phone when you call in with questions. I finally had enough and found another provider. Please look elsewhere!

Dr. Cullinane does focus on medication for treating psychiatric issues. I suffer from depression and panic attacks and you cant 'talk' yourself out of those issues in a 'therapy' session any more than a gastroenterologist can talk you out of a burst appendix. His philosophy is if some medication improves your quality of life, why tamper with that? Dr. Cullinane gave me my life back and made me a productive member of society again.

Started off with him giving good advice and recommended me to a good therapist, but then led to him giving me tons of different medications that I had horrible side effects to or just didn't work, his solutions to these issues were to just raise or lower the dose, or add another medication on top of the ones I was already taking. He never focused on the root of the problem. On top of that his wait times are horrible, never on schedule.
