This was my first visit so the time spent was him getting to know me. But for the first visit it was okay. Also the room wasn't anything special (no windows) but it does its job (small room with three chairs).
Diana has been very helpful for the past year I have been seeing her. She is very practical and provides reliable examples to help with each situation. I can see a great change in myself in this time and attribute it to her counseling. She has exceeded my expectations for therapy. I highly recommend her.
I've been seeing John for over two years. He's exceedingly professional, easy to work with, and knows when to listen, when to talk, and what questions to ask. When we are together, it truly feels we are collaborators working towards a common goal. I know that choosing a therapist is a deeply personal decision and that different people look for different things, so I can only share my own experience. Over the past two and a half years, my life has gotten better: my anxiety has gotten easier to deal with, I have become more like the person I want to be both at work and in my personal life, and I am happier. I attribute this primarily to my work with John. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
What I liked: Dr. Ashraf was very kind and charismatic. It felt like he was really listening to me and he diagnosed what was going on with me! While I could have been given prescriptions for two medications and start them at the same time, the doctor advised to start with just one and to see how things work first, which I appreciate. He also answered all my questions and apprehensions about the medication. What could improve: - The wait was 1 hour and 40 minutes, however, which seems to be faster than the other reviews here, but still a long wait. My appointment was for 7:30 pm and I saw the doctor around 9:10. The visit itself was about 10-15 minutes, so the wait is too long for the actual visit. I wish the visit was a bit longer, but I think my diagnosis was pretty clear cut, so there was no need to extend it. - It also felt like Dr. Ashraf was quick to recommend medication. - The front desk, while polite (if you treat them with respect and politeness, they will do the same), was a bit slow to do things. For example, I needed a letter of diagnosis from the doctor, but this took about 20 minutes for them to print and give to me. Their slowness is understandable because there are too many patients booked, so there’s not enough staff to deal with the volume of patients. - DEFINITELY overbooked. There’s so many people trying to see Dr. Ashraf, which translates to long waiting times and a (understandably) slow front desk. Some patients might go over the allotted time for their appointment (30 minutes, I think) because it seems like the doctor totally hears them out and tries to best to help them if they need the time. While this is really great for the patient, it exacerbates the waiting times even more. Having worked in a clinic before with similar overbooking issues, I’m not sure who is allowing this to happen, but I wouldn’t blame the front desk. They are most likely following management orders to book as many people as possible to maximize revenue. Overall: If you can get over the long wait times, I feel it is definitely worth a shot with Dr. Ashraf, who has great bedside manner and wants to hear you out. If I have the time, I will definitely go back.
Dr. Murray and his wife Gretta Keene helped my wife and me to talk to each other again. They were fun, warm and skillful.
I saw Dr. Levi and he was so kind and understanding. He made me feel validated, and I’m looking forward to continuing therapy with him
Dr. Zimet was extremely professional and put me at ease. From the get go, I knew that she would be able to help me. She established a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to explore my issues and emotions.
Julia was great during our sessions. Great bedside manner and seemed to understand my underlying issues and, more importantly, how to handle me as a person (I don't respond well to open ended questions; very direct). I was a fan and hoped she would help. Needed to reschedule my 3rd appointment due to a work conflict - she was fine w it and offered another option because she was going on vacay after me (week). I didn't respond to her in time as I was in Europe. Received an email with deadline for confirming appointment. Didn't respond in time and never heard from her again. Not sure I would have handled it that way if my job were to make people better.
Dr. London is empathic and insightful and he has the requisite experience and creative listening skills important in developing a "laboratory" to explore and embrace change.
I've seen Dr. Stemple for over 15 years. She is an excellent listener who approaches her patients and families with care. She has been very flexible about our schedule, including primarily handling our sessions over video call for the last year and a half.
