01/09/11 5 5 5 5 My significant other has been treated by Doug for a long time and I know he has a high regard for him as a doctor. We now live out of state but I was very impressed with the empathy and compassion he he showed both of us the first time I met with him. We were late but he managed to see other patients and work us in between sessions with other patients the same day and is flexible about skype etc.

19/10/09 5 5 5 5 He was a very helpful doctor. I went to him when I was in middle school. Not sure why my parents switched me, but I know it wasn't because he was a bad doctor. He always made me feel comfortable, and at ease. He had a good sense of humor. He had my father and i try a placebo for a pill we considered. Joked about us momentarily passing out and taking our wallets. It was very obvious he was joking, and made me feel relax from the stress from switching pills. I personally saw nothing wrong with the way he treated me. I see him as a great doctor, who helped me through a huge struggle. I highly recommend him. and no, we never passed out and our wallets were never missing.

02/07/08 3 3 3 3 Dr. Geenens also graduated from Harvard Med. During his practice locally, he was one of the most sought out physicians by his peers. He was seen as the "go to" person for diagnosing individuals for whom there seemed to be no hope-because..yes..he was that good. Personally, Our son was a highly complex case. Other doctors had long given up. Dr. Geenens, however, studied neurology and anything he could get his hands on as he noticed that the diagnoses being tossed around by multiple peers simply "did not fit". He was right. That so called "schizophrenia" turned out to be a seizure disorder from a head injury that had occurred unknown to us, while my son was in the care of others who did not share that with us. He could have died. We are incredibly grateful for Dr. Geenens life saving work, going far above and beyond what he was obligated to do as we have our child. Perhaps one might wonder about the motivation that anyone might have for attempting to destroy someone else's life  Respond

02/06/05 5 5 5 I/'ve always been treated with respect and as a person, not a /'mental health case/'. He has a great sense of responsibility to his patients, makes himself available as much as possible and has a personality that puts you at ease. His knowledge comes through as a friend giving advice, not as a Holier-Than-Thou /"God/" to be worshipped because he/'s a Dr.  Respond
