This content was provided by Dr. Borkosky "Born to teachers, Dr. Borkosky grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He developed wanderlust at an early age, and obtained a summer job right after high school, working in Iran (when the Shah was still in power) and Norway. However, his love of education soon overcame him, and he returned to the U.S., to pursue a B.A. in both music (voice) and psychology. He put himself through school by delivering pizza, and was offered an opportunity to manage several Domino's Pizza stores after college. However, the learning bug soon bit again, and he enrolled in the Masters of Computer Science program at the University of Dayton. He put himself through that program by working as a computer programmer for GMAC. His claim to fame there was working on GM's SuperSaver program, whereby auto purchasers could finance a car at the low, low rate of 25% interest (no, that's not a typo!). From there, Dr. Borkosky was hired at IBM Boca Raton, where he was a computer programmer and systems analyst for the PC-DOS team. He updated many of the DOS utilities, such as CHKDSK and FORMAT. Apparently, a Masters degree was not sufficient for Dr. Borkosky, and he enrolled in the Doctoral Psychology program at Miami Institute of Psychology. A glutton for punishment, he worked at IBM full time and commuted an hour each way to attend classes in the evenings. And that, as Paul Harvey used to say, is "the rest of the story"."
This content was provided by Dr. Borkosky "A psychologist helps people gain insight into their thoughts, feelings, behavior, and relationships. One of the ways we do this is by using 'active listening'. This differs from regular (passive) listening, in that it improves the speakers ability to communicate their thoughts, and leaves them with the feeling of being understood. Another helpful technique that psychologists have is the ability to ask questions that the patient had never considered before. This gives them the opportunity to explore their thoughts and feelings in new ways. A third technique used by psychologists is the ability to hear the words that are on the patient's 'tip of the tongue', and then to speak them. This validates the patient's truth and experience."

Dr. Borkosky welcomes both positive and negative reviews. Positive reviews are always nice of course. However, people only learn from their mistakes. It is preferable for patients to speak directly to their doctor, of course, so that problems with an individual can be resolved. However, for those who feel uncomfortable doing so, we will be able to address problems throughout our practice.
