Ratings for Dr. David Aboussafy
Seemed a little formal at the start, many questions to understand my situation, but took the time to listen. Lots of information provided when I asked, and many options on the steps I could take that would improve things with his help. When I followed through, they worked!
I went for a consultation and didn't return. It felt as if he was disinterested, not in tune with my situation, and not as warm and welcoming as I expected from his reviews. If he reads this, I would ask that he seriously considers coming out from behind his desk during sessions. It's a barrier between you and a client. It felt more like a job interview than anything. Maybe I caught you on an off day? I just ask that you reconsider your room. Maybe it will make you feel more open to your prospective clients too.
One of the good ones! Booked without having to wait a long time. Kind, humorous. Made me do the work, but that is the only way to improve things; nobody or no pill is going to do that for you. Think of him as a coach who has the clinical background to know what he is talking about and what works.
I saw David way way back in 2001/02. He was running a clinic to help people quit smoking. I was referred to him through my oncologists office as I was just recovering from cancer and cancer treatments that ravaged my lungs. At that time I had been a smoker for about 25 years, and as a typical smoker had tried and failed dozens of times to stop. In Davids group, I learned why smoking is addictive, what parts of the brain it affects and what happens when we try to stop smoking. In February of 2002 I quit smoking and it had never been so easy, I knew what was going on with me, what to expect and why my body was doing what it did when I stopped smoking. It is now February 2014, 12 years since I quit smoking and I owe it all to you Dr David! You are a genius and you're program was fantastic. I was so sad to find out that my group was your last due to funding cuts. Keep up the good work!
David was a gem. He was able to see me quickly, listened well, provided lots of useful information. He introduced me to a number of life-changing skills and followed through to see that they worked. David also got the reports and letters in that I needed.
