First visit, a great deal to begin covering, but he did a fine job of getting the information he needed to begin laying the foundation of a very long and complex set of issues. I realize that I tend to holdphysicians to unreasonably high standards, but I was very impressed by his knowledge and the way he took information at an intelligent pace, very much aware that there are several decades to get through. I very much look forward to my next appointment, and to continue getting help from him. I have a very good feeling about him.

Personally, I don't think people should find a mental health professional through ratings as it is, well, personal process and unique to the needs of the individual. i also believe that it can really be about what you bring to theappointment. It isn't easy finding quality healthcare especially when most doctors advise according to that manual and 'those' criteria which seem to be due to the complicated insurance bourgeoise which is in place. How in the world am I expected to rate a psychiatrist after having met him only twice, anyways..that's like giving someone a StRoNG pharma medicine after one meeting. IMHO and experience, psychiatry can actually have real serious negative consequences - leaving a person worse off I have worked with some heavyweights and want to find a good fit. When my i can afford to I plan to schedule a third appointment with dr Nininger because I want to make my father happy (which I'm way too old to be worrying about but it's complicated). I'd rather be snowboarding or out on my bike , but I will proceed with follow up review if only for my own sake Good luck to you

The Dr was professional and courteous. He definitely needs to update his insurance coverage. This was a deterrent in me particularly seeing him as, he states he takes Medicare but, he expected payment upfront. He saw me but, under the presumptionthat he will submit it to Medicare. I cannot pay the fee if this doesn't work. I am not responsible for payment as I was misinformed. Brigid
