Ratings for Dr. James J. Lettenberger
Having worked with numerous psychiatrists in connection with my PTSD and longstanding depression and anxiety issues, I can say without a doubt that Dr. Lettenberger has been the best. He has helped me find a medication regimen that works and really cares about understanding why you are seeking medication. So many psychiatrists will see you for 15-20 minutes and then hand out a script, but Dr. Lettenberger thinks it is important to have a longer visit so that you can really talk holistically about what is going on. In addition, as a lawyer at a big DC law firm, I really appreciate that Dr. Lettenberger has treated many people in similar situations and doesn't default to advising that I would probably feel better if I just worked less or took a different job. That's not to say that he doesn't provide good advice on work-life balance, just that he isn't judgmental and understands how to counsel people who are struggling with issues but also thrive in a fast-pace, high pressure job. His sense of humor is fantastic, and I look forward to every appointment with him.
Dr. Lettenberger prescribed me a medication without explaining its side effects, which turned out to be terrible. They resulted in long-term damage to my career, psyche, and relationships. When I phoned him for help, he did not provide useful assistance. I cannot caution strongly enough against seeing him, or at least getting a second opinion.
Amazing psychiatrist who actually makes you want to talk to him and open up, without feeling awkward about sharing your problems or concerns. Not only did I look forward to my sessions, but I walked away from each of them as a better person and more comfortable with the situations that I was dealing with. I happily recommend Dr Lettenberger without any hesitation whatsoever. He has helped make me a better person and more confident in the world.
Dr. Lettenberger is as good as it gets. I went through what was the hardest period of my life (thus far) and he is a large part of why I came out the on the other side a stronger, healthier and better person than when I started. He is truly the epitome of his field.
