He wouldn't let me get 2 words out without interrupting me. It seemed he was insinuating that I don't have mental illness. He was rude and only spent about 10-15 min with me. I doubt he could tell you one thingabout me. I've never experienced anything like it. Big disappointment.

Absolutely wonderful experience, one of the most highly qualified doctors I've ever seen . He was able to diagnose me better than any doctor I have ever seen. Most of all he was extremely personable and professional and made meextremely comfortable and really spent a great amount of time with me where I didn't feel rushed at all, which most psychiatrist you see for five minutes and then you leave even when it's your initial appointment. He really went out of his way to make sure I felt comfortable when I left there and in a better place and really made me felt like he cared about what I had to say.

Most visits have no more than 10 minute wait though I once had a 30 minute wait. It seems he gets busier later in the day. He's extremely receptive to my input and definitely know his stuff. Our conversations can beanywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes and he answers all my questions without rushing me. By far the best psychiatrist I've ever worked with.
