I really enjoyed my time with Dr. Aronowitz over the couple sessions I saw him. I find it’s hard to find a good psychiatrist who is willing to work with you, but Dr. Aronowitz did. He was very thorough and wantedto know my childhood history to better know why I behaved the way I did. I feel like we could’ve developed a good relationship. However he stopped seeing me after I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital on a suicide attempt. Though I hear that’s not uncommon, it was pretty weird to me as he is a psychiatrist and is to be managing my medication and treating the very symptoms that led me to the hospital.

Dr. Aranowitz is excellent. He's easy to talk to and extremely friendly. He spent extra time with me to discuss the best treatment option for me - which is so unusual among doctors, who often usher patients in and out asquickly as possible - and he was very interested and receptive to discussing what treatment options I felt most comfortable with. He didn't just write me a prescription and send me on my way, which can sometimes happen with busy doctors. I highly recommend him!

I had a great appointment. I was seen right away at my exact appointment time. The office was comforting and welcoming. The doctor spent more than an hour with me taking a thorough history and listening to me. He let meask a lot of questions and gave me long thoughtful answers. He wasn't distracted at all during the appointment and for the full hour I had his complete attention. He took time to talk me through all of my options not just medications and made sure I was comfortable with our plan going forward before I left. I have never met such a kind and attentive doctor

Dr. Aronowitrz was excellent! He has been the most attentive and helpful psychopharmacologist I've visited with, especially for a simple medication switch and advice on medication management. I'd recommend him to most, and he takes most kinds of insurance!

Dr. Aronowitz has been wonderful when I'm able to see him. However, I've been calling the office for almost 3 weeks now, and no one answers the phone or responds to the countless messages I've written. I had to see anotherdoctor to fill my prescription for the medication Dr. Aronowitz originally prescribed. To allow patients to run out of medication that is necessary, and dangerous to go off of cold turkey, is in my opinion, irresponsible. Love him...but he needs a new scheduling office.

I really liked Dr Aronowitz - he was warm and friendly, had plenty of time for my appointment, and helped me find treatment solutions right away. The problem I really have with him is his office - my prescription had tobe verified before it could be filled and it was impossible to reach anyone who could help me. It's been four weeks and absolutely no one has answered my voice mails and I still don't have my medication. For all I know, I just got scammed out of a copay.

In my initial patient visit he took enough time to get my thorough background and discuss treatment goals. He was non-judgmental and friendly. He takes insurance! :-) I was horrified by reviews of OTHER doctors who had massive wait times orwere multitasking during the appointment. I am happy to report I had literally no wait time & felt as though I had his attention 99% of the time.

I was terrified going into this appointment, but Dr. Aronowitz was kind, patient, and understanding. He really listens when I say something is or isn't working for me and seems genuinely interested in getting me normal...whatever that is!I never felt like drugs were being pushed on me against my will and he didn't even seem annoyed when I brought up my google/webmd research. I also never felt rushed through my appointment and his staff is always very helpful when I call in. Important to note that they only take cash or check though!

Dr. Aronowitz takes an extremely methodical, informed, and thorough approach. He takes the time to understand the problem and the history; I was expecting one of those 30 minute rush jobs but he spent a full hour delving into various nuances.I appreciate that, especially given how cursory many medical professions tend to be in New York. Even on a followup appointment where we were short on time he delved pretty deep. I also see thoughtfulness in understanding the medications and which ones are appropriate. He explains how the medication works and what the next steps are, which are both reassuring and project competence. My qualm is that he has something of a stereotypical "New York" bedside manner, which can come across as short, dry, and almost sarcastic. That is obviously difficult when you are coming in with struggles, but it also helps get problems out in the open rather than beat around the bush. I would say not to be intimidated by the mannerisms and speak what is on your mind. From his medical expertise it seems he knows what he is doing, and I would assume he cares about his patients. The office assistant is helpful and polite and even let me put off my copayment. Thankfully they take insurance! Hard to find in the city. His practice works great for those difficult problems that take time and effort to understand.

Dr. Aronowitz spent an hour and a half with me, taking comprehensive notes and asking pointed and helpful questions. This is not what I expected (in a good way) from a doctor in the NYC area. I appreciated his reliance on research and conservative approach to medication.

Dr. Aronowitz was attentive and warm. I have found in the past with psychiatrists that they are often brisk and have a need to get the patient quickly out of the office. I was impressed by the comprehensive history that he took.
