Incredible psychologist. Very kind. Professional. Understanding. Experienced, and has had extensive experience in multiple situations and with people who have very specific issues. I’m addition, he is very focused on YOU making your decisions and him not making a decision for you. Also, he is kind and non-judgemental. He works very hard to make sure his patients understand that their mental illness does not make them a bad person.

I have been going to Dr. Cristal for approximately a little less than a year and he’s helped me make so many changes within myself. I’ve been suffering from Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Depression and Dr. Cristal has truly helped me find the peace in my life. Dr. Cristal has helped me manage and cope with where I’m at in my life and he’s helped me overcome many areas of stress. Although the work is just beginning, I’m very optimistic towards my future, thanks to Dr. Cristal!

I have been going to Dr. Cristal for almost a year now and he's been instrumental in helping me overcome my Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder. Something I have been dealing with for 10 years, but was never diagnosed or treated till recently. He has helped me better understand my disorder and how to cope with it. I've been doing things that I haven't been able to do in years.

I cannot even give 1 star to this aloof, unfriendly man. I confirmed with my insurance co beforehand that he participates. When we got there, he barely introduced himself, was totally aloof and cold, got right into the insurance stuff, called them while we were filling out his forms. We heard him say, take my name off your list; I don't want to deal with you; hung up and said, "sorry." We were so taken aback. Do not go to this guy regardless of ins. SO offputting. Never smiled once. Ugh.

Best psychologist I've had by far. I found him by searching through health grades and it's only now why I see he has so many 5-star reviews, he's the best at what he does. I came to him when I was going through a traumatic time. He was there, listened, and responded in a way that was both helpful and comforting. He is truly there to help his clients and I can only thank him for giving me an ease of mind!

Dr. Cristal has helped me immensely with my depression and anxiety while I was struggling. His methods and guidance have had a huge impact on my life. I consider myself to be in a much better place then where I was – and I continue to make great strides day in and day out. I’m very grateful to have found Dr. Cristal here on Health Grades when looking for a new doctor. Very professional, intelligent, and friendly doctor who I’d recommend to anyone.

Dr Cristal has helped me cope with anxiety. Very good at his job. Would recommend him to family and friends. I'm much better off now after therapy sessions with Dr. Cristal. My life has changed drastically since I first started seeing him. Much lower anxiety levels and happier overall.

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!

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.

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.
