Really not the place for me. Generally the place seemed odd, and the person who did my intake seemed... Inexperienced, tosay the least. Maybe they'd work for other people, it's not the type of thing one can review objectively. Just really not for me at all.

This is a practice with various therapists. I had a session with one person taking notes then I will have anotherperson I will see regularly. Receptionist , Agnes, was super polite and answered questions nicely.

The reason why I am giving such a low rating are due to several factors. 1. The constant last minute cancellations of appointments 2. Lack of sympathy of patients who are trying to better themselves 3. The unprofessional standards how theytreat this place more like a business than caring for their patients 4. The lack of candor when it comes to remedying situations. My appointment was nowhere to be found and kept pushing back for a later date. I understand life situations and emergencies. Things happen. But the way they run things in this location.... do not bother. You will be frustrated and going nowhere when you are trying to better yourself. Seek help somewhere else... where the staff is more professional.

I had to wait for 45 minutes beyond my appointment time to see someone. The person I saw wasn't a therapist, just someone that asked preliminary questions (all of which I actually answered in the forms I showed up early tocomplete). He seemed wholly disinterested in me and simply checked the boxes he needed to. At the end he asked if I wanted to see a young woman or an old lady, and then took me downstairs to make the appointment to see a therapist later in the week. I told them it was a horrible experience and that I didn't really want to come back.

Front Desk Experience wasn't the best - a little more professionalism and pleasantry preferred, but my encounter with the Therapist - Denise was wonderful. She was professional, yet compassionate. Made me feel quite at ease, and comfortabletalking with her. I had reservations about seeking out this kind of help initially, but before I knew it I was pouring out my soul to her and.

This doctor dismissed me with in less than 15 minutes and told me to go home and 'self reflect' if I wanted to self reflect I most likely would not have sought out help in a mental health clinic. THIS WASTHE ABSOLUTE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! DO NOT COME HERE! PRACTICE SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN!

I'm not sure why this place had such bad reviews. The people at the reception were not rude to me and were helpful and calm. The person that did my intake was very nice and friendly. The psychologist I got assignedto was also easy to talk to. They take my insurance and have appointments on the weekend and night, which is perfect for me.

for the first appointment, you do not see a therapist. instead, you see someone who reads off very personal survey questions for you to answer. the methodology is terrible and the situation is very uncomfortable. who wants to come somewherefor the first time and get 0 personalized attention while being expected to reveal their inner most thoughts BEFORE even speaking to a therapist. TERRIBLE experience. i would never recommend or go back!

This place is a joke, It's more of a business than a place to get help. Rude staff at the desk, along with how they answer the phone and what therapist says to call or text them because they can't relyon staff to inform them of patients waiting to be seen. Should you not let the therapist know your there to be seen. You just lost a copay and would have to reschedule.

Today is a snow storm day which means not most people went to work. A counselor checked up with me; afterwards I was told that I would have to wait at least 4 months for an appointment with Delidimitropulu. He thensuggested a new doctor within their staff that I might try.

The first time was pretty professional, but I decided to review after a few times in case the office behavior changes between a new patient and a patient with whom they have a relationship. I'm happy to share my dissatisfaction ifby doing so I help someone else avoid the same situation. Again, the first time was pretty smooth. We did not wait long. The situation deteriorated with the second visit. We have waited over an hour for the psychiatrist there. Our insurance wanted to talk with the psychiatrist and he would not call them back, he only wanted his assistant to place the call. The psychiatrist stated that he was unable to find the number for the insurance company because it was not in the file. After I showed it to him on the coversheet, he then said that there could be another direct number that he would have to access, so he did not want to dial the number. After about 10 minutes he tried. I was baffled I had to negotiate so much for that. Another issue is that in the waiting room, the entire staff has no issue with using all the patients' names. For example, "Christie, you are after John, and John, you are after Jane." I would have liked a little more anonymity in a psychologist's office. When I mentioned my discomfort, the psychiatrist suggested that I change practices. I did.

It went very well. Other reviews have mentioned that you meet with whoever they assign you with for the first meeting. I met with Anna, who was wonderful. The only thing is that our schedules don't mesh, so I won't beable to meet with her again next time. But I highly recommend her and this place.

I genuinely can't believe how terrible my experience at this practice was. Other people have submitted postive reviews, and perhaps they were having an off night, but my visit was so wildly inappropriate it belongs in a sitcom. I was toldI would have to have an intake and therefore would not see the doctor with whom I had an appointment. I understand that that's standard practice, but I think I should've been told ahead of time. I was then told a man would be performing my intake. When I said I was uncomfortable with that, I was brought to a woman. She was very nice but seemed a bit frazzled. She said she had another patient there who was desperate to see her and I told her I was fine with waiting. She then let me interact with the patient for about 10 minutes, despite the fact that I was clearly uncomfortable with it. Once we did meet, she asked the same questions repeatedly during the intake, did not listen to my elaborations, and had her phone next to her on the couch the entire time. When we got to the purpose of my visit (my being diagnosed with a non-life-threatening but incurable disease), she was completely ignorant. It is widely known that there is no known cure, but she suggested that maybe I could find a cure in Cuba. Though she was a nice woman, she was uninformed and her behavior was bizarre. I will not be going back.

It was pretty nice. There are lots of therapists and your first visit is a consultation/intake appointment. After asking you a bunch of questions, they set up your second appointment with a specific therapist. So far, so good, but the realtest is in the next few weeks as I have my first few therapy sessions.

Rude receptionist and therapist/counselor made me feel extremely uncomfortable in my first session. I never returned for another appointment, nor did this place follow up with me. I've been going to therapy at the Blanton-Peale Institutein midtown for the past 8 months and they've been wonderful and frequently follow up with me. The space is clean and the therapists are great.
