Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Lustig is highly perceptive and compassionate, and provides effective recommendations. I have seen him as a patient on multiple occasions, and will continue to see him based on how he and I together assess my evolving requirements. He has made a major, positive difference in my life.
Dr. Lustig is the best ! He was very friendly and easy to talk to .Will definitely be going back to him in the future
Dr. Lustig is very understanding and easy to talk to. He's also responsive and punctual. Definitely helpful!
Fabulous! Headed back again tomorrow.
I found Dr. Lustig to be genuine, insightful, and knowledgable about his line of work. His office and demeanor struck me as being both warm and inviting, I'm VERY glad I found Dr. Lustig and I look forward to working with him down the line.
Dr. Lustig is very professional and knowledgeable. I continue to feel like I'm in good hands, because he takes an interest in my well being.
I was very pleased with my 1st appt with Dr. Lustig. He made me fell very comfortable and asked insightful questions (never asked by previous doctors I've seen) to help me, help him, determine the course of my treatment. He also made me aware of other aspects of proper treatment, that in all my research, was never mentioned. I look forward to my 2nd visit.
I've seen a number of psychiatrists and I feel that Dr. Lustig's approach really sets him above the rest. Unlike a lot of psychiatrists that seem to merely write prescriptions, Dr. Lustig really seems committed to getting a comprehensive understanding of all your symptoms and getting the right medication at exactly the right dosage. He also recommends meeting with patients once a week as opposed to once a month, which is what I've come to expect with most psychiatrists. I find this method much more effective in arriving at the right prescription regimen sooner. I highly recommend him.
My visit with Dr. Lustig was more than I expected. He welcomed me right at the moment my appointment was scheduled for and made sure I was comfortable and didn't need anything. Being my first visit, he took the time to listen to my concerns and worries without ever interrupting or making my concerns feel invalid. I left his office with a new hope for my future and a renewed excitement for life at the prospect of having a doctor who truly understands where I am and where I want to be in life, as well as how to get me there. I can not wait until my next appointment and the rest of my life, thanks to him.
Caring and compassionate!
The Doctor is well beyond qualified; he has an excellent resume, immaculate credentials, as well as an undergrad degree & medical degree from top tier schools: which means something (far to many people seek medical attention, from providers who take advantage of 1. The misunderstanding between a D.O. & an M.D. 2. The curriculum taught at Harvard Med (or top 25) is a lot more thorough and they hold the student more accountable than lets say; Mercer University. That said, I don't have much money & he doesn't work with you at all when it comes paying even though it says so in his Bio. Also, he's so accomplished, he has 4 offices and no answering service; so he's hard to get a hold of & hard to see. Tremendous knowledge & completely professional; just not for me.
He made me feel very comfortable and was extremely knowledgeable.. Will definitely be going back! My 19 month old daughter was with me too and she loved him.. Always a plus! ??
Very compassionate and approachable!
This was my first visit with Dr. Lutsig but I was very impressed. He seemed extremely thorough in his assessment without having you feel as if you were being interrogated. His knowledge about my condition (ADD) was impressive and I feel that I will benefit greatly from his care.
Compassionate and down to Earth, easy to talk with
My visits with Dr. Lustig have been extremely helpful. It's never an easy thing to find a good doctor that you immediately get along with. I was very very nervous but he made me feel immediately at ease. I have learned so much and feel that I am on the right track.
I've been seeing Dr.Lustig now for a few months and is hands down the best doctor I've even found to help me with my adhd that I didn't have had a child and now as an adult had to learn a completely new challenge in life. He has remarkable knowledge and understanding of adhd that I've never found any other doctor to have. His knowledge and understand of it has helped make it much easier as well because he could tell me exactly what I was going through in detail without me even having to say anything since I didn't know how to explain. Prior to seeing him my previous doctors had me on medications for other things that weren't needed I've now found out and he was able to help me get to a place with my medication after the second visit that I am happier than ever and able to focus back on my family and has saved my marriage even. Absolutely worth the money to see him! And he is there to help you get where you want to be not just in a hurry to see the next person or like many doctors I experienced for my adhd don't really listen to what your telling them.
Dr. Lustig had an empathetic approach and gave practical advice. Looking forward to continuing therapy.
Dr. Lustig is highly intelligent, perceptive, knowledgeable in his field and personable. He made me feel relaxed and comfortable and was understanding and supportive. I felt I was in capable and sympathetic hands and I trusted him. I have been treated by several different psychiatrists, having lived in different states. It is important that you are relaxed and trust your doctor.Not every doctor can inspire that confidence.
I would recommend Dr . Lustig to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, considerate, and kind psychiatrist. He is very easy to talk to and non judgemental. I have been to several psychiatrists in the past 15 years and had given up on the process. Dr. Lustig provided me with clear treatment plans and is willing to work with me to find the right combination.
Dr. Lustig was incredibly understanding of my particular circumstances. He genuinely cared about improving my disorder and offered several options for treatment, which I greatly appreciated.
I’m very happy to meet a doctor who is willing to listen to what I have to say and care enough to help me.
Makes a person feel very comfortable during a visit. He was able to diagnose the problems and address them. There will be future visits.
best doctor I have seen!
