I saw Dr. Carbonell for over a year, during which time I found his manner and punctuality to be unprofessional and disrespectful. He was more judgmental than objective/clinical, and never seemed to know what medication I was on or why wehad decided that. I felt that I was not in good hands and decided to find a new doctor. That said, he was a pleasant person in general, but was overall disorganized. My relationship with him was a source of stress, not one of relief or steady care. Disappointing.

I feel very blessed to have found this doctor. I was recently in a bad car accident and need the tools to help navigate through my recovery. He is the perfect genuine honest man to help me through this difficult timein my life. After one visit I already feel I am better equipt to face the world with the challenges that lie ahead of me. I highly recommend Dr. Fabian Carbonell to anyone looking for the help they need. He is a genuine dedicated support system with rich qualifications to guide you.

He was very kind, caring and asked all the right questions. Hes a great listener/ very receptive, and one of the best psychiatrists I have been to since the last one I had, who always was there for me died in2013.Its been rocky roller coaster since. BUT, just from my first meeting I think Dr. Carbonell has my best interest at heart, not only his.Very refreshing. And not 20 pages of unnecessary paperwork to fill out. Highly Recommend this doctor!

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 willbe 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 talkedabout five minutes and took five minutes to go over my medicinal needs, ie. what refills I need.

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 ifthe 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.
