Great initial visit with Dr Russek. We had a good conversation and discussed the right next steps for me. He's clearlywell-qualified in his field, and I felt totally comfortable speaking with him. He has very flexible appointment times (I saw him on a saturday night, which I booked same day). Recommend.

About Dr. Franklin D. Russek

As an experienced practitioner of psychiatry, I have treated many patients for depression, anxiety, and a variety of other psychiatric symptoms with medicine and supportive psychotherapy. Also, I have employed interpersonal psychotherapy to help patients manage relationship and work-related problems and challenging personal concerns. In addition, calling upon my own positive and progressively deepening personal experience with mindfulness meditation practices, I coach/teach patients to help them engage with and develop the mindfulness practices they are learning (or have learned)either in 8 week mindfulness training programs or on their own. For urgent problems, patients may reach me by cell phone seven days a week. I do not treat patients with a primary substance diagnosis and prescribe no more than a one week supply of any controlled medicine on the first visit. The NYS Prescription Monitoring Program is consulted before the patient's initial visit. In my leisure time, I enjoy playing the violin, attending concerts, and playing chamber music with family and friends. Also, I maintain an avid interest in baseball and current events.

Dr Russek is truly a kind, highly intelligent, and thorough psychiatrist! I had just relocated to New York from Illinois and was trying to schedule appointments with my new doctors however my insurance had not yet been activated. Dr. Russekunderstood my financial situation as well as the urgency for an appointment for prescription refills, etc related to my condition. He did everything in his power to help me including detailed over-the-phone consultations/ discussions regarding my condition and simplifying NY's Health Insurance marketplace (Very different and much harder to navigate than Illinois!) Thank you Dr. Russek for your time, your concern, and your constant communication with me!!!!
