Ratings for Dr. Merritt S. Hubsher
I think when the office calls to verify an appointment they should tell you the Doctor is raising his rates. We pay 100% out of pocket, so a $50 increase is a lot of money. This is not the first time the rates have gone up. It is now $475 for an established patient, which I found out at payment.
Dr. Hubsher is an extremely compassionate psychiatrist and very easy to talk to. He helped with my diagnosis of adult ADHD and since seeing him and finding the proper medication, my life has changed. I've been seeing psychiatrists for 25 years without much relief and trying every medication in the book. I suspected ADHD due to my family history and how I was struggling so much with work and daily living. Dr. Hubsher took me seriously and really listened to me. And after such a long time of feeling miserable and lost, I finally feel better. I never thought it would happen. Dr. Hubsher is very knowledgeable of adult ADHD and understands the intricacies of the disorder in terms of thought processes, barriers in daily living and how to properly medicate. I was even able to get off antidepressants since past psychiatrists had just medicated me for anxiety and depression. Little did I realize I was anxious and depressed because I could not function normally due to the ADHD. In my case, he treated the cause and not the symptoms. There may be a slight wait when you arrive at an appointment, but Dr. Hubsher gives you quality time and has been the best psychiatrist I have ever been to. Highly recommend him.
I owe Dr. Hubsher everything. From the first time I stepped into his office I knew he was the right doctor to help me overcome all of my anxiety as well as give me the proper treatment for my adhd that had gone untreated my entire life (I am almost 22 now). He listens and he cares about his patients and that is all I could ask for.
Dr. Hubsher is absolutely fantastic. It is clearly apparent that he cares about his patients and makes a concentrated effort in helping them. Dr. Hubsher has already made a profound impact on my life and I could not be any more grateful. Truly a master of his craft.
Dr. Hubsher was a terrific person for me to visit with. His caring, attentive nature was met with a real world, non-judgmental perspective. He took a genuine interest in my well being and welcomed me as a valued addition to his practice, not just another co-pay.
Dr. Hubsher has worked miracles on my mental health. After seeing a number of psychiatrists who hadn't benefitted me at all, and may have actually worsened my illness by changing medications and not listening intently to my personal reaction to the new prescriptions, Dr. Hubsher was recommended to us by a therapist who had nothing but good things to say about his success with difficult/abnormal cases (which I was). My first 2-3 sessions were long evaluations with him and ere spent with me doing all the talking and him asking simply the perfect questions to get the details about my mental illness. He listened! He didn't try to categorize me or put me in a box as far as diagnosing me because everyone's mental health is unique and individual. He simply listened with care to my symptoms, emotions, and feelings and created a UNIQUE recovery plan for me. I am now 99% better, and never did I think I could lead a normal life again. His receptionists are amazing and friendly, creating a welcoming environment, and getting to know each patient personally. I am eternally grateful for all that Dr. Hubsher and his staff have done for me.
