Dr. Hakala was, in a word, PHENOMENAL!! She listened to me intently, offered great advice and support, and is UNBELIEVABLY knowledgeable about her field including various pharmaceutical interventions, as well as alternative medicine methods - I was highly impressed!! I’ve seen 3 other psychiatrists over the years and Dr. Hakala has been the best so far. So glad to have found her! It was our very first meeting and I felt comfortable and at ease with her within the first 60 seconds. She is truly interested in helping her patients and goes out of her way to ensure they are taken care of.
