I don't know how he has been practicing for so long, and allowed to prescribe medication. Truly saddened real care and concern can't be given to patients with serious mental problems.

Dr Gurtovy is very courteous, does not 'over prescribe' like many psychiatrists do. He accepts all insurance, and as a psychiatrist gets all the impatient mentally ill Medicaid types, who will probably bash his time management and skills since they are ill. He is very thorough, great bedside manner, but does overbook-or rather spends too much time with patients for the 50 bucks insurance companies pay him. Those reviews clearly come from the uninformed and not well. Lovely man with a sweet sense of humor.

I went to Dr. Gurtovy regularly for nearly a year and each time I had to wait at least one hour to be seen. The visits with the doctor were all less than 10 minutes each. There was no attempt by the doctor to discuss my treatment or how things were progressing. I told him the medication that I wanted and he gave me a prescription for it. This is not how a psychiatrist should work. There was a complete disrespect of my time in this office. I complained to the receptionist who said that there was nothing that she can do to keep the appointments on schedule. Only go here if you have a LOT of time to waste and don't mind seeing a doctor who won't take the time to give you a full visit.

A very nasty man and as far as physicians go, definitely not the smartest. Clueless on drug interaction. Highly afraid of being sued. Tries to give everyone the same medication, wonder how much the drug company is paying him? It would be unbearable going there if it wasn't for his lovely staff. I curse this guy in Russian every time I leave. He does not like fat people, he is impatient, he bills a lot of money for reports that other doctors do for free. But sometimes there is an advantage to going to an idiot. They're easy to persuade if you need to persuade them of something. Humorless man who keeps you waiting a long time.

He's is horrible with time management. He overbooks, setting up 15 minute appointments one on top the other. He is always running behind. I even made sure a few times to make myself his 1st appointment. But even on those occasions he came in 45 - 60 minutes late!!! He takes other phone calls during my session right in front of me and lets himself be interrupted by his office staff. I am going to find a different doctor.

Dr, Gurtovy makes you wait over an hour for every appointment! When I once confronted him about this he simply smiled and ignored me. He spends barely 15 mins. with you while looking at your chart and checking off stuff. He even answered his cell phone during an appointment! I stopped seeing him, since he only gives you enough meds. for 1 month and doesn't refill over the phone, so you're forced to come in and waste an hour of your day - don't go to this guy.
