Do NOT choose him. The ONLY relationship we had was about MONEY. I had to send many forms before I could even schedule an apmt. Only after he checked my insurance benefits did he give me a call. I saw many mental health professionals and never felt so intensely treated like a dollar bill rather...Read More

He is compassionate, empathetic and...Read More

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...Read More
