Dr. Greenfield is a straight shooter and will tell you all the risk associated with addictive behaviors based on his vast experience in this field. It was refreshing to hear about the science behind my issues and that there is qualified help available and hope of recovery.

Very very good psychiatrist. Very engaging and tells it to you straight, doesn't dodge or sugar coat anything. For myself, I am glad he didn't sugar coat anything.
