One Star

If you truly need help with addiction issues, seek help elsewhere. I was a patient of his for three years because my employer required me to use him (FAA required due to alcohol abuse). He has a captive market of patients due to my employer’s requirement that he is the only psychiatrist we can see within this program. He takes great monetary advantage of this arrangement. I would rate his treatment as unremarkable and ineffective. Oh, and very expensive. Very disappointed in his approach to treatment.
