What People Say About Dr. Timothy Lesaca, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Total quack, I should have check around, found out later he's known as one of the worst clowns in the city, people only go to him if they have no other viable options, but from my perspective, a person would be better off with no psychiatrist at all rather than deal with this incompetent fool. Acts like he hasn't read a book in 30 years, as no surprise his office has no books. Not sure how someone like this got a medical license. He has very little knowledge of psychiatry, and clearly knows nothing about psychotropic medication. Thinks he's a genius, and acts like he's better than everyone else, in the beginning might seem like a nice guy, but he's a horrible backstabbing jerk, stay away, keep your friends and family and children away, for your own sake. A total waste of time and of money.

He didn't recognize my bipolar while I suffered with it for months.
