Knows much more than other psychiatrists

Dr. Poitier is up on the best treatments for those with major depressive disorder, aka, depressions. He will work with you if you have financial obstacles to treatment or are uninsured. He is well-mannered and always respectful. He is dedicated more toward helping people than to the almighty dollar. His staff is great, sweet, helpful and courteous. They work with you to get appointments that meet your time needs. Due to his popularity with patients and the doctor’s willingness to squeeze you in when you need to see him, there can be times when the office is crowded. You might have wait time if you come during these particular times. If you don’t want to wait, speak with the staff and they will give you an appointment for a time that is less busy.
