||12/3/13||1||1||1||1||I did not have a good experience at all with this doctor. I went in to speak with him with major anxiety & panic attacks & he basically listened to me talk & then sent me off with a prescription that was way too strong for me that later that night made me so sick. I called the office and all he told me to do was cut the pill in half. I would not suggest going to him at all!!||Respond|

Dr. Posternak is an exceptional psychiatrist. He has a more holistic approach than other psychiatrists I've worked with, evaluating life events in relation to symptoms. Some psychiatrists can seem like medication pez dispensers but Dr. Posternak works very hard at tweaking your treatment plan for the best results. He is kind, sincere and very thorough. He also has the patience of a saint, which I suspect isn't always easy in this line of work.

Very knowledgable in cutting edge psychopharmacology. Somewhat dry, practical personality but obviously well versed in diagnosis and treatment of anxiety and depression.
