In such a short amount of time, Dr. Cristal has made a huge impact on my life & my personal battles with anxiety. In many ways Dr. Cristal has pushed me to better myself as well as my relationships with people around me. From my first visit, and on, I have felt nothing but comfortable to speak to Dr. Cristal about anything I am dealing with, he truly makes the atmosphere in his office known that you can talk about whatever you would like, without ANY judgement. I would certainly recommend him!

Always professional, Trust worthy and respectful. I feel I am in good hands.
Roslyn, NY |
He spends a few minutes of each session reviewing previous notes taking up time which should be spent in session. Unfortunately, he is not able to provided alternatives if his recommendations for behavioral changes do not work. I sense that he means well but was not the right fit for my situation. Instead of acknowledging that he could not assist he told me that he would call me when an appt became available. Never heard from him and that is not in accord with the standards of his profession.
Farmingdale, NY |
I have been seeing Dr. Cristal for a while now. He is one of the greatest people I know. He helps me to figure out so many things in life and help me get through everything. Dr. Cristal is understanding and really great at what he does. He knows how to help you through problems, hard times, and just life in general. He's professional, friendly, and intellectual.

Dr Cristal saved our marriage 4 years ago. My husband and I both had buried childhood traumas that we never dealt with until we almost lost eachother. Thanks to Dr Cristal we are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary this summer. We went to marital counceling and individual therapy.

Dr. Cristal is a miracle worker. He was able to help me understand myself and has identified the root of my problems. He's provided me with different tactics and strategies on how to deal with my thoughts and emotions. I would highly recommend Dr. Cristal.
I have been seeing Dr. Cristal for almost a year now and its been a great experience. He is extremely professional and it is clear that he is a master at his profession. Everytime I see him I feel that I make progress and I feel happier, more confident, and significantly less anxious than when I began working with him. I constantly find myself sharing what I learn in my sessions with my friends, family and students. I highly recommend Dr. Cristal.

Anxiety issues had been troubling me for a number of years, but dreaded the thought of having to visit a series different doctors to find the right one for my problem. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Cristal right out of the starting gate. I found him to be kind, understanding, and extremely patient. He is knowledgable and I have full confidence that, working together with him, we will successfully eliminate my troubling anxiety issues. I highly recommend him without any hesitation.
in Plainview, NY |
Started seeing Dr. Cristal a while back. I was worried that I would spend an endless amount of time trying to find a doctor that I felt comfortable with. Within a few minutes of our first session that worry was gone. Dr. Cristal has a very deep understanding of people and it shows in his approach. He's very caring and has a pleasant disposition. He truly gets to the root of issues and offers practical coping mechanisms and guidance. Great doctor who I'd recommend to anyone.
in Manhasset, NY |
Dr Cristal Provides understanding and strategies for dealing with what were once complex and baffling issues. Dr Cristal is always professional. I would highly recommend a consult if you're having any issues. My life becomes measurably better when I implement strategies I've learned at Dr Cristals.
in Plainview, NY |
Excellent therapist. Helped me tremendously.
in New York, NY |
I came to Doctor Cristal's office with my significant other for the purpose of working out issues in our relationship. My significant other has been his patient for many years. So I was walking into what I thought as a therapeutic environment where I was the outsider. Dr. Cristal's manner was so cold and condescending that I was immediately on the defensive. It felt more like a attorney 's office than a psychologist. The first 8 minutes of the session he spent doing his electronic records.
