04/02/14 5 5 5 5 Dr Best has helped me when nobody else could. I've had chronic depression my entire life and for the first time in I don't know how long, I feel happy. Depression is a nasty disease of mind and body...a systemic disease....and he gets people like me who are treatment resistant....His approach is to heal...not to pacify...He's brilliant and I have much respect for him. He's compassionate, empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. I would totally recommend him and the work he does. He helps a lot of people who are at their wits end. I know from personal experience.  Respond

13/04/13 4 5 4 5 Brilliant, fabulous doctor. Dr. Best made correct diagnosis before tests were administered. On most annual visits all my questions are not answered, but makes himself directly available via e-mail (how many M.D.s do this?). Also, gracious demaenor while patient processes. Open to alternative therapies if such treatment seems viable to him. As Dr. Best was recommended to us, our family feels honored to have been under his supervision.  Respond
