I saw him 3 times and on the third time he dropped me without telling me he'd discharged me based on the fact that I went to rehab in the past. no one should be punished for seeking help and heven wasn't prescribing me any controlled substances. refused to refill my medication upon discharge, was not referred to any other dr. been seeing psychiatrists for 14 years and he is by far and wide the worst most negligent one I've ever seen.

He has always been very polite and most of the diagnostics are based on the first visit. During follow-ups, he asks how things are going and is perceptive, or at least he has been with me, on wether or not the medication is effective, and if i have been taking it. He will adjust accordingly. for example, after the near-drowning of my 2 year old son, he introduced a stronger anti-depressant. A few months later, my father-in-law died suddenly. I couldn't stop sleeping. For one month I used a trial medication to help with the absence of energy. It was a great help. And because it was a trial, the fees for this expensive med were waived. After a few weeks, I was back to my old self and did not need any pill, nor did i feel any kind of withdrawal effects. I could go on, but, as long as you are honest with him, and open with your emotions and life's happenings, he will be able to treat you well.For those of you looking for more time, this is not the job of a psychiatrist. You need a psychologist and he will recommend one for you.
