I thought Dr. Vinuela was very nice and professional. He listened carefully and made thoughtful comments and discussion throughout. I felt very comfortable talking with him and did not feel like he was judging me, which I've had issues with other doctors. He explained all of his thoughts and recommendations so I understood what he was thinking and prescribing. I look forward to seeing him again.

Dr Vinuela is very caring and compassionate. One of the few people who ask me how I'm doing and actually wants an answer. Like most Psychiatrists, he is basically going to be performing medication and not therapy - but he does what he does well.

I've seen Dr. Vinuela over the past few months and he has been professional and seems knowledgeable. He cares about you on your first visit but then on the subsequent visits, you have to reiterate all the information you've told him on the previous visits. Repeating myself on my appointments is frustrating as it makes me wonder if I'm just another patient he has to see before the end of his day. It also doesn't hurt to read over a patient's chart before the appointment to at least feign that he remembers you. I also have to write about the front desk staff. They are probably one of the worst that I've encountered as asking them to do their job agitates them. They're neither friendly or cordial and it's obvious that you are just another paycheck to them.

Dr. Vinuela is an amazing psychiatrist! As mentioned in other reviews, he has a knack for discovering things about you that you never knew. Moreover, he is not dismissive and fully explains the type of medications he prescribes. I highly recommend him!

I was quite anxious in being forced to choose a new doctor because of a change of insurance policy, but after my first visit I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Vinuela was not only exceptionally knowledgeable in his specialty, but even shed some light on things my last doctor had missed. He definitely put me at ease and I look forward to continuing my treatment under his care.

Dr. Vinuela was very kind, helpful and knowledgeable. Unfortunately his staff at Palisade was a bit unfriendly and disorganized. They did not send my prescription to the pharmacy after the first appointment; after the second one, they sent the wrong medication. This just gave me a feeling of distrust towards the office, which is a shame because, again, Dr. Vinuela was very nice.

I've been seeing Dr. Andres Vinuela for a few weeks and so far it's been very positive. He is patient and thoughtful and possesses genuine empathy. He has had very good insights so far into the medication and is always adapting and innovating a solution based on my description of symptoms and emotions. More than anything its such a relief to have a Doctor that you can trust when you're dealing with mental health issues. It takes a huge weight off and relieves anxiety. We're constantly working together to get the right solution for my health, and we're not there yet, I'm am no longer worried; I feel confident we'll get there.

The dr makes you feel very comfortable which is very important when you suffer from anxiety and depression. He also makes you feel like he is only a phone call away just in case a life event leads you to despair. You know you're not alone in this horribly cruel world and I appreciate him for that.

The staff were courteous but quite disorganized, not knowing which documents I needed to fill out. Doctor Vinuela seemed more interested in talking then listening. If you are looking for a doctor with empathy, this is not the psychiatrist for you. Moreover, they failed to send in my prescription. I had to call them 4 times until they did it properly.

I visited Dr. Vineula twice. As a new patient who has never seen a psychiatrist before, I was surprised that he did not explain anything about the medications he was prescribing me - what they are typically used for, side effects, etc. I had to go home and research the medications on my own. On my second visit, Dr. Vinuela looked very confused as I started updating him on how I was feeling. It turns out he had someone else's notes on my file, while my original notes were nowhere to be found. He offered no explanation or apology, and I found it all to be extremely unprofessional. I don't feel that my private information is safe in his hands, and will not be returning a third time. (I was also billed for that appointment with the unknown patient whose notes he added to my file.)

Dr Vinuela takes time to listen to you and understand your situation. I would strongly recommend him. I've had bad experiences with psychiatrists in the past that are more interesting in the dosage of X medicine you are taking rather than understanding the underlying issues affecting you; Dr Vinuela was the exact opposite and I would certainly recommend him

Dr. Vinuela was great! I have had a hard time finding a Psychiatrist in NYC who participated with insurance so decided to venture to NJ and was very pleasantly surprised. Dr. Vinuela has a calm demeanor and was very informative and understanding. He gave me some validation that I needed about the way I was feeling and put me on a plan that I feel confident will turn things around for me. I definitely recommend him!
