I had an inconsistent experience with Justin. The first appointment he generously spent extra time with me and seemed to be very attentive, took in a lot of different information and I came away feeling he had made a real effort to understand me. He prescribed me a medication in that first appointment, saying I should start taking it immediately and that it was very safe with very few side effects. In the second appointment Justin was very disconnected, distracted and cold. I then changed over to another (female) psychiatrist anyway as I had to move away from Melbourne, and she immediately took me off that medication explaining that a major side effect of it is that it can reduce fertility in women and so she never prescribes it for her young female clients as a first option, especially because there are other equally effective options without this awful side effect. I wish Justin would have forewarned me of this. Also, I forgot to inform his office that I was moving and so ceasing treatment because the move was so sudden and chaotic, but I was disappointed he never followed up to check on my whereabouts. What if I had stopped going because I was unwell?

He's a great psychiatrist. For the first time in a long time I'm on medication that is actually working. He's sympathetic, honest and really cares for his patients.

Don't ever see him on a Friday afternoon. It's like he can't be bothered. He didn't help me at all. So glad I went to see someone else.

He has helped me with my understanding of my I'll was and what tablets to take. I was taking one medication in the evening and then couldn't sleep. Now I take it in the morning and I don't need to take a sleeping tablet at all. I can also cope with my kids better because I am not tired all te time.

Interestingly he didn't prescribe me any medication at all, unlike the previous reviewer. I wanted him to, but instead he took me off medication. I was surprised to realise that I actually felt better on less medication and would never have felt that was possible. He has been useful to get my life back on track

Never really seemed to hear me. Way too big on medication, would have let me slip through the cracks if I hadn't sought a second opinion. Refferred me to his wife for psychotherapy. Odd.

Overall good, at least helped me to understand why I take medication and not be so confused about the diagnosis
