Rude staff, incorrect Rx and numberous billing issues

He is honest, and I personally sometimes change my medications back to what they were previously prescribed without telling Dr Gaertner and he never gets mad at me (unlike every other psychiatrist) because he knows I'm just trying to feel better and he doesn't just say oh well it's your fault you shouldn't have done that he takes ownership in the first place.

Dr. Gaetner is by far one of the best psychiatrists we have ever dealt with... which is saying a lot since my husband has had a major mental illness for over thirty years. He is competent and professional as well as caring and perceptive. I would highly recommend him.... the problem is that he doesn't see many new patients because once he becomes your doctor, you never want to switch.
