He was fantastic. Really listened to my concerns, did not make me feel rushed, took a thorough history, asked a lot of questions and then made educated decisions regarding what medication(s) to prescribe and explained WHY he was prescribin them. He accepted my insurance (Anthem Blue Cross PPO) so all I owed was my co-pay. On the way out he handed me his card with my next appointment date written on it and said to call anytime if I had questions come up between now and the next appointment. Extremely satisfied and already feel better about all my issues/concerns because it feels as though at least I've started to do something about it. Highly recommended!

Doctor Safahieh was very personable, he was a great listener. He asked the right questions. Clearly he is very interested in the field of psychology, and very knowledgeable. I found him to be genuinely interested in findthe right combination of treatments. I would highly recommend him, and he is out of network for me, but very much work the time and money.
Was seen by a nurse practitioner, Sheena, and she was wonderful! Super nice and calm and thoroughly explained everything and I feel super comfortable in her care :) thanks!!
Dr. Globus has always been extremely professional and helpful alway willing to go above and beyond for his patients. I would recommend Dr. Globb's to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and direct Dr. for psychatry.
Dr. Hill is a highly skilled psychiatrist who combines knowledge of the brain function with talk therapy. Excellent with children.
Excellent Doctor! I've had many in the past & I can tell a very good one, when I see them! He's highly intelligent, & even personable without invading ones privacy or personal boundaries. He's nice, pleasant, & has a positive type of friendly personality. His smile is comforting, too! He's very knowledgable about medications, dosages, & their side-effects. He doesn't over-prescribe, which is very important to me, since so many doctors these days in America, want to oversell drugs, due to pharmaceutical lobbying & incentives. I've now, had 2 appt's with him & I think "he's a keeper!" ;)
She is a very nice woman. Very skilled. But I thought her ideas a bit archaic an behind the times for me. I am progressive, feminist and independent. Her basic beliefs were out of sync with my own.
Dr. Schwartz was very professional and understanding. She has a very upbeat and positive approach to the consultation that relieves the stress and anxiety that is often felt in an initial consultation. She was very thorough in explaining her diagnosis and the treatment plan, giving me check in questions to make sure that I understood the proper actions I needed to take and what the follow up steps look like.
Dr Gundersen seems to be a caring doctor who is responsive to a patients needs and preferences. When interacting with previous physicians in this field I have been routinely encouraged to re-try medications that I have had a dangerous reaction too. Dr Gundersen took my concerns into consideration when choosing medications to try and due to that we were able to find a great balance of benefit/side-effect. That being said, this office, it's policies and behavior towards patients is at best unacceptable and at worst predatory. From a massive fee for being more than a few minutes late to check-in (required >10 minutes prior to appointment start time) for your appointment, to cancellations/rescheduling without apology or explanation (or notification I might add), to a rather large fee they charge you if you'd like have your prescriptions refilled - a full 5 second process. Bizarre, hostile, and unethical are all words I'd use to describe my interactions with the office staff. These people are actually the worst and I will not be returning to their office, despite my good experience with the Dr himself.
Dr. Allee has a friendly and likable, interesting disposition. She also came across as non-judging, which made me feel comfortable. She was able to offer a few insights during my initial consultation which were helpful and will give me things to think about before I see her next. The waiting room is decorated with a clean, relaxed minimalist look, and dim lighting. There are several small books (the kind you can open to any page and get a quick snippet of info without investing a lot of time) on the coffee table. Her personal office is adorable. It is decorated in a calming color palette of beige and cream, yet with cool undertones. Overall, it was a very nice experience and I'm looking forward to my next visit.
Very understanding and calming. Fairly conservative and honest about medication, which was refreshing. I felt like he really took the time to understand my concerns.
