    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

Evil

Run the other direction. There are vipers with more empathy. He will keep you sick and over medicated as long as he can. If you question his methods he will become defensive and accusatory. You are better off self proscribing. I am sorry I can't give negative stars.

unhappy

Very unhappy with the low quality of care. An oath is taken when you become a dr. Drs. should have to say that oath every time they renew their license.

Guinea Pig

No kindness or sympathy. Cold and a man of few words. Good at pushing multiple drugs at the same time. Which keeps you coming back with multiple side effects. That is his motive. Fill up his appointments Never believes when you tell him how you feel. He makes you feel inferior. Looks good on paper. Sucks in real life

I felt as if I was a guinea pig for him

-Has the sympathy of a rock.-Was more worried about making you part of a study he could write about in medical journals.-Really felt under-served by him for someone so well educated and recognized in psychiatric community-Once I was seen under another psychiatrist's care he found the right combination of meds and my quality of life improved.-I feel his priority is studies and not the patients themselves.
