Very disappointed. Arrogant, argumentative, and defensive. From a mental health care provider?

Dr. El-Asyouty does not over medicate, spends lots of time talking with me and has pretty much saved my life. He knows me very well and I trust he knows what's best for me (although I don't always listen). I have a good quality of life now because of this doctor. He is compassionate, empathetic and wise.

Kept me on the wrong meds over 10 yrs at very high levels the insurance didn't cover. More when it isn't working? So add more things. He ignored all of my resulting serious health issues and fought me to reduce meds, which I did over 3 yrs based on test results that he ignored. I'm no better or worse than before and I'm off the meds he prescribed. 60 lbs lighter, normal blood press., blood sugar, and cholesterol now. A different psychitrist asked if I could still feel anything while on them. No.

I have been seeing this doctor for 13 years now. Sometimes I have had to wait in his waiting room for long periods of time; but he is worth waiting for. Over the years, we have built a high level of trust in our doctor-patient relationship. I trust his judgement and would continue seeing him if he was going to keep seeing Medicare patients.

great doctor. very knowledge able and professional. knows his stuff well. After being miss diagnosed so many times, i Finally found a doctor who got it figured out. Very knowledge able about meds. it's hard to find a good psychiatrist in town and i recommend dr. El. Wait time is sometime like 30 min but again all dr.'s run behind ?

I've never met such a disgustingly rude doctor in my life. I went to this Doctor for help, but instead he basically told me I'm a pointless case, but had no problem continuing to take my money. This doctor is all about his money and could not care less about his clients. He is a sick person that feeds off taking advantage of helpless people. Money is his only motive, not helping his clients. If you want to be spoken down too and told your never going to recover than this is the doctor for you.
