"I've been to a lot of doctors and have never been compelled to write a negative review, even with long wait times and mistakes made. I've never had a worse experience at any type of doctor ever than I had with Dr. Fieve. The office staff was rude and cold, but that was nothing compared to Dr. Fieve.
Once in his office I was met with him staring into space. I had to initiate closing the door, inviting myself to sit, and the smile & handshake. He simply seemed annoyed someone was bothering him.
He clearly had an agenda of promoting his books as he mentioned them and pointed to them several times throughout our "conversation". I put conversation in quotation marks because the worst part is I barely got a word in. He cut me off every single time I was a few words into an answer and aggressively spoke over me with his next question. I even asked to explain a couple things that he wouldn't listen to me finish and he literally said "no". I don't know why he even bothered to pretend to carry on the conversation as long as he did as he clearly had me "diagnosed" within 30 seconds and just wanted to sell me more appointments and medicine.
I have been to one other Psychiatrist who couldn't have been nicer, was a great listener, and made sure I felt comfortable the whole time. Dr. Fieve was the exact opposite. If you are simply looking for medication he seems to be a great choice, but if you actually want to speak with someone and get a proper diagnosis I'd stay far away. Ironically I felt happy and relaxed walking in and that experience put me in a terrible mood. "
