06/07/12 2 5 5 5 Dr. Korchmarev is fantastic - I can't rave about him enough. He's caring, he's knowledgeable, he listens, etc. But his office staff seems unorganized and uncaring.

01/12/11 5 4 5 5 Finally, a doctor who did not push medications. We came up with a treatment plan together and discussed everything in great detail. I knew what I was in for with Dr. K's treatment approach. He even told me what to expect from the natural supplements he recommended. He probably takes this stuff himself, since he even knew how the individual products would taste. Overall, I'm much better, but do take a very low dose of an antidepressant in addition to the supplements.

11/11/10 4 4 5 5 Very insightful, super intelligent; excels at identifying underlying causes of psychological issues. Dr. K has helped me tremendously with an anxiety disorder; I've been seeing him for 5 years and highly recommend him. Also, I didn't feel like he immediately pushed medications on me, which has been my experience with other psychiatrists. Overall, in my opinion, he really knows what he's doing.

16/09/09 4 4 5 5 This is a busy practice with several doctors, all of different specializations. They have doctors for young people, kids, elderly, drug addicted and alcoholics, you name it. I waited for two weeks for my appointment with Dr. K. It was worth it though. He diagnosed me with bipolar and confirmed suspicions that I have had for many years. We tried very mild treatments, vitamins, supplements, and low dose medications. I am finally in control of my emotions, but I have not had to sacrifice my personality as a result. I'm still myself and can work and interact with others better than ever. Thanks you Dr. K. and thank you Lamictal.

14/08/08 5 5 5 5 I recently saw Dr. Korchmarev for the first time. I have complex problems and take lots of pills for different things. He was able to go through all of my prescriptions, explained what they were for, and we decided together what to do for my depression that would be best for me. Our first meeting took about an hour and a half. I left feeling confident that there was a treatment plan custom designed for me  Respond

19/05/08 3 5 5 5 THIS DOCTOR SAVED BY LIFE FROM ALCOHOL ADDICTION AND SEVERE DEPRESSION. HE IS A GODSEND. NEVER WAS HE INPATIENT WITH MY LACK OF PROGRESS OR LINGERING DEBILITATION. I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGHT ABOUT THIS REMARKABLE PROFESSIONAL. HE NEVER PUSHED MEDICATIONS BUT TOOK MORE OF A HOLLISTIC APPROACH TO TREATMENT THERAPY. WITH HIS HELP, IM GLAD IM ALIVE TO SHARE THESE COMMENTS. HIS OFFICE IS WELL RUN FROM A-Z. THE FRONT OFFICE STAFF COULD BE MORE HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY HOWEVER.

05/02/08 5 5 5 5 I've been seeing Dr. K for years. He's always been there for me when he I've needed him. He's very compassionate and always goes the extra mile for his patients. I like that he's not a drug pusher and also takes a homeopathic approach to medicine combined with conventional medicine. He's extremely knowlagable and puts forth great effort when caring for his patients.  Respond

08/12/07 1 1 1 1 Dr. Korchmarev is well educated.. However, he appears to be more focused on himself and building up his own self centered ego, than focusing on his patients. He is stealthfully manipulative and controlling... He appears to lack empathetic understanding of each patients unique emotional issues.  Respond
