Dr. Anna Wachtel is the best psychiatrist I have ever seen. I have seen several psychiatrists over a twenty year period and all that has happened was that I was misdiagnosed, given all the wrong medications with the wrong combinations and even too much of some of them at one point. In just a few visits Dr. Anna Wachtel got me on the right medications. She consolidated and ruled out the ones that I did not need and I take only a quarter of what I used to take, as a result I feel so much better. I have a lot more energy. I also feel a lot better about myself and l also feel a lot more in control of what is going on around me everywhere I go. I am taking not half, but a quarter of the medications I used to take, and I feel like I am in control of my life again. I just want to reach out to anyone that is in a similar situation. If you have been seeing multiple psychiatrists and you still feel unhappy on the inside of yourself, even after trying many medications, over a long period of time, then you probably should see Dr. Anna Wachtel. She stopped and fixed that vicious cycle I was going through for many years of being misdiagnosed and given the wrong medications with the wrong combinations and that is why I am so happy those times are finally over.

Before I found Dr. Wachtel, I was in a real dark place and the thought of opening up to anyone or asking for help - was quite honestly terrifying and overwhelming. After researching several doctors on Psychiatry Today, I decided to take the leap and schedule an appointment with her. It was the best decision I have ever made. I have been seeing her for about 2-3 months. I feel like me again, I have regained my hope and zeal for life again. She is a GREAT listener, so incredibly thoughtful and she never rushes a session. She's the best.

When I first started seeing Dr. Wachtel I was suffering with bipolar disorder. After detoxing me from the medication that my previous psychiatrist hooked me on, she worked with me to find the medication that suited my health and work habits. She is a great listener and gives excellent advice on leading a healthy, happy life. I am grateful for Dr. Wachtel and I wouldn't be as happy as I am today without her treating me.

I have been seeing Dr. Wachtel on and off for different life challenging situations since 2002. From PTSD and anxiety after an attack, to depression and pain due to chronic illness. It took some time to get over different hurdles but she never gave up on me. I like that she keeps track of the medications, I take from other doctors and carefully chooses a combination that works well together. I also changed my eating habits, started meditating and work out …things, I wouldn’t even have considered in the past. I not only love life again, I have learned to truly love myself as well.

She has worked hard with me to find the right combination of medication. Her knowledge and experience has been impressive. I have been seeing Dr. Wachtel for around 6 months and already have noticed a dramatic improvement. I would highly recommend her!
