Awful!!!! Please do not see him for care. I have worked in the field of behavioral health for five years with schizophrenic patients. I know some thing. I went to him looking for care for my 14yo D who had a psychotic episode. He would not listen to me or the 2 psychologists who have been treating her. Would not even talk about the Psychosis. Worthless! Her history and current presentation of cognitive impairment meant nothing to him.

All around negative experience. I would never go back~I would never refer anyone to him. He has his own agenda regarding meds & you'll be hard pressed to get him to write refills for your own medications. Very thick accent makes it difficult to understand him.

Disappointed Patient in Phoenix, AZ – Mar 12, 2017
I arrived 30 mins early for my first appt.No one else in waiting room.I was called to his office 30 mins after my scheduled appt time. He called me by the wrong name, twice, even after I corrected him. He did not read my chart that I filled out while waiting, which included my entire medical history.He told me he would not persribe the meds I've taken for the past 7 years and prescribed by 3 separate drs.I've tried over20 meds and these are the only ones that work. He is awful.Go somewhere else
