Ratings for Dr. Nathan Naparstek
Naparstek is nuts. I when to him for some testing over 10 years ago. It turn out that try to make me see him every week for a issue i did not really. Him to push for the use of drugs. Do not go to him there are better people out there to get what you really need.
First meeting was rushed. He will push for an ADHD diagnosis no matter what. He treats people horribly.
Dr. Nathan Naparstek is a blessing! Dr. Naparstek always returns phone calls with in 24 hours - usually it is the same day! He has even touched base with me prior to going on vacation. Dr. Naparstek helped me to formulate a plan of attack for my situation. I would recommend and have, Dr. Naparstek, to anyone in need of a Psychologist for adult ADHD assessment. He is a Psychologist who truly cares and is concerned even after your visit!
My daughter has seen Dr. Naparstek several times and he DX her with ADHD. I called him again because our young son was in crisis and he was able to see him the same day as a new patient appt. Dr. Naparstek is very attentive, caring and really listened to all of our concerns with our son who he DX with ADHD and other Dx's.... When I call the office Dr. Naparstek returns calls within a timely manner. Our family is very very impressed with Dr. Naparstek!! Thank you for all of your hard work.
We took our 5 year old son to Dr. Naparstek for an ADHD assessment. We were very disappointed. The assessment was very rushed. I had offered to send information ahead of time so the doctor could read & prepare for the appointment, but he said that wouldn't be necessary. However, at the appointment he barely skimmed the reports that I brought. He also interrupted me every single time I was speaking. I was never able to finish what I was trying to say. When my son was wiggling around in the chair, the doctor would say to him "OK. Just sit nice now." Really? He also conducted the entire appointment with my son in the room so we were forced to have a discussion in front of my son that I would have preferred he didn't overhear. The appointment ended abruptly with the doctor stating, "I have other patients waiting." I requested a report from him in writing for the school & what I received in the mail was a partially illegible handwritten paragraph on letterhead. Completely unprofessional.
Dr. Nathan Naparstek is a blessing to our family! Our son is the patient but Dr. Naparstek involves the whole family and is kind and concerned about all of us; not just the patient. Dr. Naparstek always returns phone calls with in 24 hours - usually it is the same day! He has even touched base with us during his holiday/vacation. We find Dr. Naparstek to always have a plan of attack to our situation and a productive and effective plan. My son may not always like being called out on his behavior but knows that Dr. Naparstek is a smart man and will hold you accountable for your actions. We would recommend and have, Dr. Naparstek to anyone in need of a Psychologist...we are very happy with our choice and have been through a few other Psychologist before we finally found one who truly cares and is concerned even after your visit!
Dr. Naparstek made our family feel very comfortable and at ease. As this was our first time visitiing a psychologist, I was a bit nervous. However, Dr. Naparstek gave my husband and I numerous tips on how to correct behavioral concerns for our son. He followed up closely and was very respectful of our needs. At this time, our family is doing remarkably better than when we first saw Dr. Naparstek. I even referred a friend who also said she was very happy with Dr. Naparstek. I would happily recommend Dr. Naparstek to anyone seeking help or advice on making family time more enjoyable and to learn more about any mental health issues.
I felt that he talked down to me. I also disagreed very strongly with his diagnosis of my child as having ADHD, and as time goes on, my child continues to prove more and more by her behavior that such a diagnosis was wrong. Personally, I would not recommend him to any of my friends, but I see others here have had a different experience.
Dr. N. has treated my child for the past 7 years and has always been there for us. He accommodates our scheduling needs, has never cut short a visit, promptly responds to crisis calls, and has even checked in when he was on vacation. Of all the mental health professionals & caregivers we've dealt with over the past 7 years, he is by far the most professional, accessible, and helpful person we've encountered.
