He was personable and honest, made me feel I could be honest and we could really talk about the issues I was there for.
I would highly recommend Dr. Maxwell to others who may be unsatisfied with their current psychiatric care. Because he does not accept insurance, there is a considerable expense for visits (as is the same with any psychiatrist who does not participate in insurance networks), and I would recommend (if you do not have the disposable income) to try a psychiatrist within your insurance network. If that works, then fine. If not, then book an appointment right away with Dr. Maxwell. Even with regard to expense, I must point out two mitigating factors. First, remember he, like others in private practice, are running a business, and like any other business, a profit needs to be made. But I will say that, relative to other psychiatrists, he does not blatantly make the profit motive his number one concern. Instead, he makes his patients' goals his number one concern. Believe me, there are psychiatrists that are ONLY about the money! I literally have had the experience of contacting a psychiatrist, and before he even said hello, introduced himself, and asked what he could help me with, he was already inquiring how I intended to pay. Second, he does not push needless appointments if they are not absolutely necessary. If you can survive two-three months without an appointment, then he will make that clear. He absolutely doesn't push you to come back every week to two weeks so he can make an extra buck (I have seen that too). Of course, if you aren't stable then you need to be seen more, but he is honest in that regard. As far as my general recommendation goes, I only see him for medication management, so I cannot comment on other services he offers such as therapy. I am not a big believer in therapy (and I don't have the money), so that is the reason I don't use that service. If my feelings about therapy and the income were the opposite, I would definitely see him for therapy. The main reason why I like him is because he does not dictate to you. He is not an authoritative doctor. He works with you to reach your goals, and he is willing to listen to you when it comes to the chosen strategy. That doesn't mean you will get your way, but your input is not only appreciated but considered. This is the opposite of my last experience. I had a psychiatrist who was constantly telling me I was this and I was that without listening to a word I was saying, and ultimately took me off meds that were working all because she wouldn't take the time to listen to me. He is definitely knowledgeable in his field, and I have the sense that he uses the successes and failures of other patients to help guide his treatment decisions. In other words, he isn't a robot who prescribes drug A because an algorithm in some psychiatric manual says that drug A must always be prescribed when patients have symptoms A, B, and C. And he is never afraid to go back to the drawing board and try a different approach if that is necessary.
My sessions with Dr. Agrawal have helped me come through a period of deep anxiety and emotional confusion. He is warm and engaging with a great sense of humor. He is also really honest about what he thinks. I love his questions. They draw me past mental blocks I hadn't known were there until I look back from the other side. I always imagined psychiatrists' offices were cold places but he lets emotions into the room. He has a kind of genius with pain that is hard to describe. I've come to feel less scared of what is inside me.
Dr. Sternbach was attentive, compassionate and honest. I highly recommend him as a doctor.
This was my first visit. I felt very comfortable sharing with Dr. Ellis. My first impression was that he was a caring individual who was engaged in my issues. I felt he was a good listener and discussed what my goals would be to the work we would do together.I feel that he may be a good fit for what I'm trying to resolve. He has a warm honest demeanor.
Dr Nwankwo is very kind and I felt he was easy to speak with. In my opinion he was genuine in wanting to help me. I went into the appointment feeling overwhelmed and almost hopeless. Dr. Nwankwo helped me feel that things can be manageable. I look forward to seeing the fruit of our times together.
Dr. McFadden was kind, empathetic and clearly an expert in her field. She immediately put me at ease to begin to break down a very complex situation and was eager to review my medications and implement good judgement and change. I am thrilled to have found Dr. McFadden and give her my highest recommendation.
Stephen Wiener did a good job of addressing my concerns and showed empathy for me as a patient.
