One Star

Terrible in crisis situations. Treated me like I did something wrong and needed to be punished. Tone of voice was offensive.

Two Stars

Very over-worked. Satisfactory listener. Not entirely sincerely concerned about patients. What psychiatrist plays with the computer while patient is talking? Penn Outpatient Program is somewhat of a joke and isn't quality care I'm sorry to say. And yes, Dr. Baldassano doesn't understand the concept of time.

The best in Philly maybe US

Dr. B has been my lifesaver. After several misdiagnoses, Dr. Baldassano spent time with me and my family and was able to make a careful diagnosis. She is incredibly patient, and compassionate. Very smart, super perceptive. Ignore the post written by this Joseph - he clearly has a vendetta against her. I sat next to him in the waiting room a few years back, and he went on and on about her and it was absolutely personal. Believe me, this guy is obnoxious and if you saw him you would never take his review seriously.

The best psychiatrist

Undeniably knows her field and has good clinical judgment. Has gotten to know me as a person as well as the typical course of my disorder and remembers what meds I've tried and what the results were. Collaborative and kind. Can be hard to reach sometimes, but in an emergency, she is always responsive and will adjust her schedule to fit me in. Yes, she is usually late for routine outpatient visits. I bring a book or phone to occupy myself.

Worst psychiatrist I've ever been to

I had five appointments with Dr. Baldassano. She completely missed one with of the appointments. She was an hour late for another appointment. She misdiagnosed me. When I had severe side effects to the medication she put me on, she was not responsive at all. She doesn't listen and she's very aggressive when you try to disagree with her. The bottom line is that Dr. Baldassano is an expert in her field. She is probably great at conducting research and giving seminars. But she is a terrible one on one psychiatrist.

Unprofessional verging on negligent

Claudia is consistently late for appointments (1-2 hours) and doesn't return texts or phone calls. She's a mildly competent psychiatrist, but if you want someone who respects your time and will actually provide you with reasonable care, do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

Five Stars

Unusually skilled in the theory and practice of treating manic-depressive illness. Rare blend of empathy and clinical accuracy with such difficult and evolving biology and psychopharmacology associated with this disorder. Her clinical, teaching and administrative responsibilities are beyond reason. So - Yes, she can be late. And - Yes, there is no other professional who is worthy of the wait.

Four Stars

Dr. Baldassano is a very intelligent and capable doctor who is well-qualified for her position. She is kind and understanding, and otherwise, well-rounded. Wait time in office can vary between 20 min. - to over an hour. It can be a pain, but she is worth the wait!
