Very supportive and skilled Psychiatrist

Great doctor of the mind and really listens Dr. Samir Farag is very knowledgeable and supportive. Been with him 7 years now. He's the best listener out of all I had in the past and processes quickly presenting what he feels would benefit me best. He's been supportive and encouraging. Reminds me how far I've come and how much I've worked and how hard to get there and that I can't give up. He believes that I'll get what I'm after and I did. He knows medicines every which way but loose. Polite, professional, dignified, gentleman. Respectful, caring, concerned. He gives space for me to talk unlike others and without criticism or judgement. Very sharp dresser, Not disheveled like many of the other psychiatrists I've had. Appearance says a lot with a psychiatrist and a disheveled mind doctor is Not a doctor who should be treating someone else's mind and behavior when they won't care for themselves. *Very accepting, supportive and understanding of my LGBQI&T communities. If you're in need of a very good psychiatrist with whom you needn't worry and can be yourself, go see him and stick with it. You deserve to feel better. We all do. Best to all, ~MC

Phenomenal doctor

Dr. Farag is an amazing doctor! He is kind and respectful. He always listens to my concerns and is nonjudgemental. I feel extremely lucky to have found a doctor not only knowledgeable and good at what he does but who also shows empathy.

Terrible

He was uncaring and rude. He gave me medicine that caused me to gain 80 pounds over 2 months.. My mother came with me once to ask him to change the medication due to the weight gain. He wouldn't. He said, "Do you want your daughter dead or fat?" I was thin when I started going to him.... He said I must have been eating all day long. My eating habits were the same as when I was thin. He didn't seem to care one bit about me, the weight gain, or the added depression that caused! There were other medications that he could have given me. I have since changed doctors and am happy with him.
