First, I'd like to say that I think these reviews on Dr. Carbonell's page filter out the negative. After my experience, I think it is VERY unlikely that a majority of his patients have all of this wonderful feedback. It will be interesting to see if my review even shows up. After dealing with an incompetent & unresponsive psychiatrist for the past year, I really thought I hit the jackpot with Dr. Carbonell after the first appointment. I couldn't believe that he had returned my call so quickly to schedule my first appointment. He seemed very personable, empathetic and willing to help with my struggles in any way possible. I walked out of that appointment in July with a renewed sense of hope that I found a medical professional who really seemed to care. Fast forward a few weeks to when I was having a horrible reaction to my new medication. Throughout the week, I left multiple messages on his voicemail, the front desk voicemail (they never answer the phone) along with multiple emails. I was totally desperate to get a response. For anyone who has dealt with depression in any way, you know how hard it is to get the motivation and energy to call the doctor in the first place. Compound that with an unresponsive doctor and horrible side effects from medication. I had no choice but to wait until my next appointment to talk to him. He claims he was out of town, didn't get my messages, etc. He brushed off my feedback as if I was a burden for even daring to call him. He did not take me off of the medication and said "everyone has bad days". He literally said that. At this time, I'm trying to get approval for another type of treatment at Northwestern in addition to medication. He said he fully supports this and will reach out to that doctor, send whatever info they need, etc. Northwestern and myself have been trying to get him/his staff for the past month to simply fax my records to them. That's it. Just FAX my records. Of course they didn't return ANY of several messages and emails throughout the month. Once again, I had no choice but to wait until the next appointment. When I walked in he smiled and said "oh did you get that treatment you needed?" Long story short, I walked out of there with my hard copy medical records to find a fax machine and send them myself. I let him know how frustrated and disheartening it is for a medical professional that deals with mental health to be so unresponsive and irresponsible with the well being of his patients. Of course, he didn't care. I would strongly advise anyone to NOT see Dr. Carbonell. He has made my situation much worst by wasting my time.

I was a little disappointed. I waited an hour and fifteen minutes to see him and got only ten minutes. It wasn't my fault he was behind but I suffered for it. I had lots to tell him but we talked about five minutes and took five minutes to go over my medicinal needs, ie. what refills I need.

Dr. C. has seen mde through my latest depressive episode and kept an eye out until it passed. I'm in a good place right now and will enjoy it as long as it lasts, with the comforting thought that the doctor will be there to help me again when I hit a low in the future.

I never had a negative perception of Dr. Carbonell, and yet I can still say that he has grown on me over the handful of times that we have met. Psychiatrists often seem distant from their patients. However, he remembers quite subtle details from our previous conversations (details that I don't believe he had documented in notes), and appears genuinely interested in hearing about many facets of my life. Part of him doing this is his responsibility as a psychiatrist. Part of it is that he is experienced at his profession. Another part, I believe, is that his personality at work is not simply a persona. In my best evaluation (and I am admittedly not a clinician), he has a genuine and caring personality that also accompanies him when he leaves work. (As a disclaimer, this is not to say that Dr. Carbonell will engage in an hour-long conversation with each of his patients, myself included. I doubt that doing so would be feasible, unless planned.)

Welcoming and pleasant to take history without feeling interrogated - interested in options for alternatives and kind to suggest better ways to handle medications - keen to help improvements with objectives clearly stated. Looking forward to next necessary appointment.

Sitting in the waiting room for this length of time without anyone coming out to tell me anything is unacceptable.. While Dr. Carbonell apologized for the wait, which I appreciate, I expect that this will not happen again. emergencies come up (that didn't seem to be the case) and sometimes meetings run over, but not a full hour.

Dr. Carbonell is wonderful, and by far the best psychiatrist I've been treated by. He doesn't work on a strict clock, so if you have more to say he won't stop you. He really listens to your concerns and will always work with you to get your medications perfect (even if it takes like 10 tries). The only thing you have to understand about him is that he works at the adjacent hospital as head of the department and only sees out-patients on certain days roughly 2pm-last patient). He is often late. Bring a book or something to do, there's a tv in the waiting room. Hospital emergencies will override your appointment but Barbara (his assistant) will usually have an idea of where/when to expect him. I think he's worth the amount of unpredictability. I've had to chase him down a couple times for a prescription I need hand written, but Barbara will help you out with finding him.

Cannot say enough good things about this wonderful and most caring doctor. My husband had resisted taking "meds" for many years and tried several alternative treatments but, after an earlier Consult with Dr Carbonell, we both agreed that if the time came that only meds would work, he wanted it to be under Dr Carbonell's care. The last treatment program (TMS) was not successful for him and we are so grateful that with Dr Carbonell's guidance he is now able to resume his life free of the severe depression and anxiety from which he was suffering.

Excellent first impression. He listens. He understands. He did not rush to prescribe any medications, as other doctors do. I have been through a handful of psychiatrists for the past 6 years and one thing I've learned is to trust those who listen and get to know you before prescribing . Besides, he is very kind and has a positive attitude.
