Career case

I have been treated all my adult life by many different psychiatric doctors, and by and far dr. Poletti rates the highest. He is well informed on new medicines, and he treats his patients with the utmost respect. He does not patronize you.. He listens, and makes you feel like your life matters. My only wish, is that I had found him years ago, and then the quality of my life would have been much much improved. He is the best.

Dangerous!

Doctor Poletti is a very dangerous psychiatrist. He is approximately 84 years old and is very behind the times regarding current medications. He tried to pull me off 2 medications cold turkey. I spoke with my pharmacist who became my temporary doctor" until I could be seen elsewhere. You're much better off and safer seeing a general practioner until you can find a good psychiatrist. I cannot stress enough how dangerous Doctor Poletti is.
