still can't believe what a bad doctor he is, even 4 yers after stopping sessions

He was very punctual, he has no staff, it is just him. Unlike other therapists I've been to, he answers the phone when it rings during you session. But that's not the real diappointment. He would never speak, I would say what I could on a subject and he would just stare at you, expecting something more thats's just not there and he won't give you any direction. Whenever I would ask for his thoughts or reactions, he would just say I need more information, again without any direction from him. BUT THE WORST IS, HE WOULD FALL ASLEEP. I am so not kidding. Now maybe it was because i had my sessions on a monday after lunch, i don't know. He would do that classic sleepy persons nod and he would blame it on allergies-(winter or summer) Now I am a very nervous anxious person so it took me 4-5 years to finally get the courage to leave him. If you need someone to listen to you, this is your guy, but don't expect any information or help from him, it took me years dont make same mistake. TY

An excellent psychiatrist

I found Dr. Sobel to be warm and caring. He worked with me and I believe helped make me who I am today. He gave me the confidence I was lacking and I have never met a more caring doctor
