Dr. Richard Gurke's Ratings
Dr. Richard Gurke is an excellent psychiatrist, he has helped me realize the importance of creating a balance in my life which has gone a long way in improving my overall mental health. Sleep, exercise, diet, & more importantly, he seems to stress the satisfaction of creating a good social network for myself. He listens carefully and even if I think I'm sounding like a total bore or whiner, he keeps an optimistic outlook and offers sound medical advice. He is intimidating to the newcomer, perhaps because he's so tall and is concentrating solely on the job at hand. The only scary thing I experience from my visits there is the value he places on being totally open and honest, but if you can't trust your psychiatrist, who can you trust. And I must say that, being a shy person, it's hard for me sometimes, but he is not judgemental, he just wants to make an accurate assessment.

Finding the psychiatrist one can experience progress with is as difficult as the problems one may have that leads them to see this kind of doctor. Fortunately for me, I am able to easily share my concerns with Dr. Gurke as he is an excellent listener and he helps me discover my own answers which makes it easier to try to work out the problems that I have need to resolve. Talk therapy and medication as well as the group programs available through the Pinewood Associates with the psychologists, social workers and psychiatric nurses all help one achieve a healthy mind and the knowledge that one has to be actively involved in achieving wellness.

Dr. Gurke is very accomodating. He is always willing to listen to your research and what you think the problem may be. He is also very practical with his approach suggesting more than medication....such as vacations, exercise and time off. He looks intimidating but just let yourself be honest and open up. He genuinely seems like he cares.

Dr Gurke is very knowledgeable, and always is available for consultation. I can call his office and leave a message for him and he will call me back. If necessary he has arranged to meet me at the hospital. He has been very supportive and keeps a good track on how I am doing.
