Dr. Lysak is a wonderful person. I did have a few doubts but she cleared the hurdles and turned out to be one of the most honest and caring people I have ever met. She knows her stuff and has certainly helped above and beyond what most people would do. I am truly a better person for having knowing her.

First and only psychiatrist I have seen due to moderate panic and anxiety disorder. Boy was I lucky. She genuinely cares about her patients and is very very humble. Best part is she listens! She hears you and doesn't tell you how to "fix" yourself, rather helps you find your own way. She guides you. She is not a pill pusher. Far from it. She's big on CBT and assigns you homework to help you learn how to manage things oh our own. I went from a very serious state in which I could barely leave home to almost as if I didn't have a condition thx to her. Her husband Mark works there too and is very kind and nice! Thx Dr. Lysak for everything!

In the beginning I was hopeless. No one could help me...no one could possibly understand my scrambling unwanted thoughts. I hated myself. What was the point of getting help anyway? No one cared. It was if I was locked in a dark room, I had the key to get out...but I couldn't find the door. I couldn't even see the door. Walking into Dr. Lyzak arms during my very first week sparked something inside of me. She listened. She understood. She helped put my thoughts into words and worked with me to understand myself and the way my body was trying to communicate with me. I connected with Lyzak in ways that I could never connect with anyone before. I slowing started to go home feeling cleansed and hopeful. I began to look at people and the things I said or did in different ways. Lyzak found a way into my dark room. She is currently working with me to find that dam door. I can't wait to see what's on the other side. Whatever it is, I'm beginning to see I won't have to face it alone. Thank you.

I have found Dr. Lysak a breath of fresh air. Finally, a doctor who does not talk down to someone with a mental illness but explains things compassionately and rationally. She also provides the alternatives and expects you to participate in your health care, not to be a passive observer. I had been misdiagnosed for so long until I came to Dr. Lysak and things are finally starting to look up - if only others had taken the time like Dr. Lysak. As serious an issue as mental health is, Dr. Lysak can add some levity when you need it. She is a wonderful,caring and intelligent practioner.

Very competent. I have seen a few doctors who just want to prescribe medications and could care less to hear my story or history. Dr. Lysak seems very understanding in what I want and has a keen interest in trying to find a solution to my problems rather than trying to drug me as others have done in the past. She looks for all kinds of problems that might cause mental health issues and treat those instead of jumping on the medication band wagon right away. She is a team player, not an I am "god" type of doctor. I am so glad I have found her.
