What People Say About Dr. Alan Pasternak, PHD
I came to see him after my little boy passed away unexpectedly. I found him to be helpful when telling me what to expect from grief, however I found him to lack empathy. A few sessions he showed up late telling me he spent the morning with his grandson, who was just a year younger than my son. He would talk about their time, it made me feel even worse. I wish I had been able to tell him to stop. His offering of antidepressants after my 2nd visit was off putting. Sadness is ok, expected even.
