I began seeing Dr Oh in 9/12 after 6 mo of worsening dep/anx. My lifelong dep/anx had previously been fairly controlled with medication from my PCP. Dr Oh had good reviews at the time. Apparently since then his attitude has changed, because I had a similar experience as the two most recent posts. I went to him with severe dep/anx. He diagnosed me with SAD and ADD, added Wellbutrin, Ritalin, and Xanax to my current Effexor and Klonopin. He told me to get strictly 7 hours of sleep, and sleep with a bright light on. I followed his orders, took the meds for a month although they made me feel worse. He then changed the Wellbutrin and Effexor back to my previous Lexapro, and continued to give the same instructions (7 hrs sleep/bright light/exercise) for the next few months, without any improvement. When I was in worse condition after 6 months, he told me there was nothing more he could do as I was not following instructions (because I was still too depressed to get out of bed), and fired me.

Horrible man. First visit seemed as though he got me, and told me ADHD was causing my life-long depression, anxiety, everything. He had no problem putting me on daily Xanax (when almost no other docs are; that bothered me), took me off Cymbalta and put me back on Prozac, which I had been on for 30 years. Told me to get less sleep, stay up 'til midnight, eat meusli, weird stuff, which I did. When I saw him the next week in tears, I tried to ask him how long to expect this; was it withdrawal; etc. Also how to take the vyvanse because I had odd work hours. He refused to answer my questions and told me I didn't listen, I kept changing doctors and didn't take my medicine - accused me of all sorts of things - and he couldn't help me. After completely changing my meds, he told me to find another doc. Refused to listen to me and answer my questions. Stood up, opened the door, and stared at me until I left, sobbing. I'm filing abandonment complaint. Still don't have a doc and meds running out.

I actually had an awful experience with Dr. Oh. Having had suffered from depression and OCD issues, my psychologist recommended I see a psychiatrist as well. Dr. Oh almost immediately wrote off my issues, telling me my real problem was ADHD. I gave him a shot and tried the medication, going to maybe a dozen appointments. I had a wretched time getting him to listen to my concerns, even when the medication was wreaking havoc on my body. Sure, I could sit still, but I was even more depressed and my OCD drove me nuts. I'm sure he can be a fine doctor at times, since he's obviously helped at lease a few people. But if he tells you that you have ADHD and you disagree, his mind has been made up and there's probably no changing it. That has been my experience, and I would hope anyone going into his office for the first time keeps an open mind, which means giving him a chance- but being open to the possibility that he could not be right for what's wrong with you.

Dr Oh is outstanding. If it wasnt for the one rude secretary the place would be a joy. Now it is very nice once I pass her up and sit down with Dr. Oh. Idont always agree with what he does, but I respect that he has more expertise in the area, and isnt a pushover.As for the white haired pone answerer, she would do well as a phone bill collector or maybe a repo woman. Dr Oh i truly excellent though, and you cant go wrong if you truly want the root of your problem, not just a feel good doctor.

I have searched 25 years to find a doctor like this. Dr. Oh is amazing and with a short family history list and history of my treatment in the past, he was able to diagnose and treat me properly. I feel the best I have felt in a long time. I liked that he did most of the talking and asked me all the questions. He really cares about your health and making sure you are feeling your best. I recommend this doctor to anyone.

A wonderful lifesaving Doctor, I have even been to the Mayo Clinic but Dr. Oh saved my life and my husband even decided to go and he is remarkably better. Dr. Oh does no dredge up the past but focuses on improving your life now. Thank your higher power for this Doctor.

I would't see anyone else. I drive from southern Orlando because I only trust Dr Oh with my mental health and stability! I have been seeing Him for over 7 years and could imagine no other. You can trust in his judgements and knowledge.

I have a fear of Doctors in general, I have been a patient for 5 yrs. I travel from southern Orlandno to Daytona to see Him, He has been wonderful and very calming, He listens and cares and even remembers! Since I see a counselor He only prescribes my medicines but will remember without opening his files what questions to ask and how are your family members..HES THE BEST, I will only change if he goes out of practice or dies. You can't go wrong with him. very understanding and caring of his patients
