Dr Yusim makes you feel welcome and at ease. She listens very well and responds thoughtfully. What is very helpful is her openness to embracing and encouraging spiritual fulfillment.
Great doctor. She is very warm. I love her spiritual approach!
Dr. Yusim is kind, intuitive and competent. She gave me sound advice and I left the appointment feeling hopeful for the first time in months.
Dr. Yusim is perceptive, compassionate, insightful, creative, and very very smart. Truly one of the best physicians of any specialty I have ever encountered. She has helped me immensely.
A very kind, warm and compassionate doctor. Really good listener, gives insightful feedback, gentle and easy to talk to. You can see that this doctor truly cares.
Excellent! I really like this doctor. She does not push meds. In addition to discussing medications, she is informed about alternative treatments (supplements, nutrition, acupuncture, exercise, etc). This is also the first doctor who has really gone in depth with me about my spiritual beliefs. This was a breath of fresh air and I found our discussion therapeutic, insightful and uplifting. This doctor is kind, authentic, positive, professional and easy to talk to. I liked her a lot!
Dr. Yusim is a cut above the rest. I've been to many therapists over the past 20 years but this doctor has something that I've never experienced with anybody else. When I left her office after my first session, I felt lighter and freer, as though my depression had been lifted. It's strange to say but it felt almost magical. I've only seen her once so far, but from my first experience, she's well worth the money & truly something special. I'll definitely be going back.
She's fine in every way in terms of her practice, very nice, but so nice that it almost comes off as fake. However, what really bothered me was her pricing, she charges ALOT per one hour session (which were more like 45 minutes). Additionally I asked her to write me a letter regarding my prescriptions, because I needed it to go out of the country with my medications. She wrote the letter (which was essentially 3 sentences) and then billed me a significant extra fee for the "additional time" it took her to write the letter, even though it must have taken her no more than a couple of minutes. Are you kidding? I complained and attempted to claim that she was courteous enough to leave out additional charges for "texting back and forth" when discussing the letter. One of the most absurd things I've ever heard, have the decency to write your patient a quick letter or communicate with them over the phone after they've paid you a ridiculous sum of money for just 45 minutes of your time. This lady will rob you blind, stay away and find someone with some sense.
My visit was productive, to-the-point, and very helpful. Dr. Yusim is a great listener, and -- equally important -- a great questioner. She is open and collaborative about comparing different treatment options. She conveys honest optimism about the path ahead. I am grateful to be under her care.
Very easy to talk to, understanding, and compassionate. Will definitely visit again!
This was my first visit and she was so warm and made me feel comfortable right away. She went through my history and made observations that made me feel better during the visit. She also provided helpful suggestions in several areas of my life that were actual action items when I left. I will be checking back with her in a couple of weeks to see how the medication is working, but I can easily understand why she is so highly rated and doesn't accept insurance. It's worth it to splurge on good care!
She is the best doctor I've ever met.
I've been seeing Dr. Yusim for several years now- she's incredibly warm, excellent with managing medication, will go at a pace your comfortable with, and will listen so that you really feel heard.
Dr. Yusim is absolutely wonderful. From the moment I first met her, I felt safe, soothed, and confident that I was in the custody of a competent and compassionate professional. I have had several experiences with unpleasant psychiatrists recently and have thus struggled to secure a regular with whom to continue my treatment, and so I feel incredibly lucky to have found Dr. Yusim. I look forward to my next appointment with her and to making progress under her guidance.
Dr. Yusim is a wonderful doctor, person and professional individual. She cares deeply about her patients and puts you at ease right away. I am going through a very stressful period right now and Dr. Yusim is helping to smooth things over with realistic advice, encouragement and a common sense approach. I know I will get through my rough patch with her help today and always. I highly recommend her with affection and respect,
Simply the best!

Dr. Yusim is great. Professional, compassionate, intelligent. Class act therapist who has an uncanny way of "getting you" right from the start. Recommend with the utmost of respect.

I really liked her.
She is the best, most approachable psychiatry professional I have ever worked with. She is action-oriented, with a classic approach to identifying issues and providing advice.
She is an asset to the medical field and one of the best doctors I have ever met!
Professionally warm and empathetic. Listens well, asks spot on questions. Can certainly help you achieve your goals if you do your part. She's great.
Personally warm and engaging. Incredibly bright, understanding and helps to get you to answer the tough questions rather easily. Comes up with a plan and if you are a willing player, you will end up winning. She's the best I've seen in years.
Unless her advice turns out to be poor, which I can't imagine it would be.... she's great. Very easy to talk to, upbeat, and professional. I don't think you could go wrong. I got lucky and got an appointment within 24 hours because someone else cancelled - what a break!
Dr. Yusim is, by far, one of the best professionals I have had the privilege of knowing. First, she listens, she is sympathetic, she participates in your session. Second, she is extremely bright and creative in her approach in helping you come up with what is right for you in terms of a plan. Third, she cares, she truly cares about her patients and she will always get back to you in a timely manner. We all sometimes need that extra help in life. Run, don't walk to her office!!
Bedside manner is most important to me and she was amazing- kind, gentle- ill be seeing her again. The office setup was the only negative b/c you buzz in and there is no receptionist in the waiting room. Overall great doctor and great experience.
I've seen a number of different psychiatrists over the years and I can say that Dr. Yusim is among the very best. Her rates are on the high end, but it's worth it.
Thank you with all my heart Dr. Anna. I only attended 3 sessions with her and she accommodated me immediately due to the urgency of my situation. I would say that I reached one of the lowest points in my life due to an accumulation of many different issues. She listened, supported, discussed, provided the perfect and necessary care needed. She is very kind, generous and felt comfortable from the very first minute. She compromised on somethings and I am just so appreciative to now have her as my doctor. I recommend to any and everyone. Simply the best and see also how accomplished she is!
Dr. Anna Yusim is very warm and made me feel comfortable through the whole visit.

Warm, caring and easy to talk with. Will be seeing her again.
