Dr. Nwankwo is very caring and knowledgeable. I was going to give up on finding a psychiatrist until I booked my appointment. His office is very calming and there is a very well trained therapy dog. Dr. Nwankwo took the time to go through my whole problem and went into the slightest details. He also sent me some related medical articles to help with me control my symptoms. Highly Recommended!
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.
I had no prior experience working with a mental health professional, which compounded my anxiety during my first visit. Dr. Harris was immediately able to make me feel comfortable not only in his presence but in my decision to seek help. His ability listen and express empathy is really what stood out in our first meeting. He has a friendly, yet highly professional demeanor. He also has a wonderful way of relaying scientific, technical medical information in a way that doesn't required a medical degree to comprehend.
Very attentive, detailed and caring. His professionalism is apparent. Glad to have found Dr. Wiener.
He was personable and honest, made me feel I could be honest and we could really talk about the issues I was there for.
