Dr. Protter interrupted me a few times and has a brusque bedside manner. I know that's been mentioned in previous reviewsbefore. However he is also very honest, which can be positive or negative depending on your treatment goals.

Dr. Protter was very professional. Listened to my needs, concerns and goals for treatment. I appreciated his transparencyand realistic approach in achieving my asks. I look forward to working with him. Having a HCP that is relatable in therapy is essential to a successful session and ongoing patient/physician relationship.

Bedside manner
I didn't feel like he listened to me at all. He would talk over me, not let me finish my sentences, and made me feel like I had to defend myself. Instead of understanding my work-related anxiety, he put the blameon me for being mistreated by my supervisor. That was really uncomfortable.

Bedside manner
He saw me immediately. Felt comfortable in his presence. The process was interactive and he was not judgemental and neutral throughout the session. I would recommend him.
