Dr. Utsinger is a truly kind, caring, wonderful doctor. He listened to my current concerns and offered both a clear medical diagnosis as well as practical advice and wisdom as to how to deal with my issues and live my bestlife. I get the sense that he truly cares about his patients, that he sees them as the real people that they are. He prescribed me medication that truly helps and manages my specific problem, but more than that his honesty, wisdom, and genuinely caring and candid manner made me feel that I’d most definitely made the right decision today when I clicked the appointment time button next to his name, and “Book Appointment” shortly thereafter.

Thank you Dr Utsinger, please don't take this personal. I usually not fond of psychiatrists or the profession. I consider it a necessary evil.My opinion has changed after meeting you..Thank you for listening to me and Matthew. I really feltthat you were neutral.First couples therapy. I will be seeing you every two weeks. I look forward to seeing you..I really think you took the time to listen to me and my issues. I felt very at ease and comfortable with you..P.s I really enjoyed your description of the Bronx. I could smell and taste it .Felt like going home..You would be a excellent writer.But thank you again I feel like I'm in good hands. I never felt that way about a Dr...So I will see you on the 5th......the one thing that would made your story of NYC better would have been some hot peanuts lol

The doctor was kind and thought deeply about my life and what activities or supplements could actually help me. He was not entirely medicine focused he tried to give me solutions that would be positive in my life, overall, including exercisingand about where to live. He is a good doctor and if you have some life and psychological problems he will treat you as an individual and with great respect. After only an hour with him I felt like he understood me, and kind of knew my story well enough to be able to make suggestions that could really help me continue to grow in my new home here in Los Angeles. Best doctor I've seen in a long time

Very caring and nurturing. However, I do not like the brand Sandol. I like the brand Teva. But my pharmacist seems to be uncaring. What can be done about this?
