Dr. Frumin was knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate and provided exactly the service one would expect from an experienced and competent psychiatrist. Before Dr. Frumin, I initially saw a junior psychiatric nurse practitionerand found the NP to be severely lacking in knowledge and alarmingly incompetent. Then I saw Dr. Frumin and found out what being treated by a "real" psychiatrist is like. If you have a psychological issue that is more complex than something really simple (eg "general anxiety"), then it's probably worth the premium to see an experienced psychiatrist rather than an unseasoned nurse practitioner.
