Terrible . My family has been using Dr L for 10 years. I came I today because my husband just died and I need help sleeping . He yelled at me that I need therapy and a sleeping pill will maskmy situation . Yelled at me more that I came in with attitude ; and bottom line is he was angry because I did not like dr that he suggested my daughter go to. This was a dr that could not tell me if she was on BCBS. This is supposed to be a psychiatrist that is understanding . He was mean, and it's a miracle that I made it home after seeing him . Worst dr experience of my life !
