After about a year of visits Doc Carbonell has transformed my life, and consisted of him dialing in on his correct initial assessment. He addressed and corrected what so many other psychiatrists had missed, and the result was a year so productive that I achieved goals that had frustrated me for 9 years. My first review made after my first appointment was as strong of an endorsement as I could make, I won’t try to replicate my nuanced assessment of him. My wife who is a cognitive neuroscientist with several degrees in psychology who researches in a university psychiatry department concurs with my highest praises of Doc Carbonell as well. But I write today to say “mission accomplished.” I’m off to begin a new life that wasn’t possible before, it seemed like a distant bird on the horizon, an idea so elusive I could only whisper of it, and now I’m off to be what I had always dreamed. My only regret is that in moving away from Chicago I take with me Doc Carbonell’s enormous shoes to fill. Thanks Doctor Carbonell!

Dr. Carbonell has managed to change my life by working patiently and diligently with me. The peace and balance I now have as well as focus and motivation are thanks to his efforts to really get to know and understand how I think and operate and how this can so easily throw me outside my capacity to cope and panic, the new me, or the real me that has now found myself, is so grateful.

For those of you who fear doctors throwing medication at you or being treated like just a copay, this is not the case with Dr Carbonell. I appreciated that he didn’t just ask textbook medical checklist questions - he got to know me (as was appropriate and relevant to my visit). He cared that I’m not a fan of prescriptions and I fear strong medication, so he started me on medication and dosage instructions I was comfortable with. Finding a good psychiatrist is scary and tiring, so I’m encouraged I may have found a quality doctor worth staying with long term.

Dr. Carbonell is the best psychiatrist I have ever visited by a mile. He truly cares about how I'm doing and doesn't just write my prescription and tell me to leave. He remembers where we left off the last session and has a genuine desire to get to know me. It took a few months to get my treatment solidified, but he was extremely patient and has been very understanding when I've had things come up last minute.

I often waited for more than 30 minutes past my appointment time. The doctor made inappropriate comments to me about my life and relationships and never seemed to know what medication I was on or why. I do not recommend.

I no longer see this doctor, because he was constantly running so far behind that I would wait crazy amounts of time to see him, or he wouldn't have even arrived yet when it was well past my scheduled appointment time. His bedside manner was awful, he was disorganized, and I do not recommend him.

I have successfully moved to West Des Moines IA. I had refilled most of my meds before moving. Dr. Carbonell is one of the best, if not the best, psychiatrists I've had in Chicago. He will be a hard act to follow in my new city. As soon as I get settled with a psychiatrist, I'll sign a form to forward my records from Dr. Carbonell to the new psychiatrist. I owe Dr. Carbonell so much!

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 we had 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.
