Ratings for Dr. Victor B. Richenstein
Good shrink; easy to work with; shows empathy. i was doing great with him for a couple of years. Only two minor negatives. 1) He's very busy. He sees patients only a limited number of days and hours and it seems like he takes more "out of town" trips than i thought most doctors do. (Maybe to keep his own sanity??). and 2) I was doing better when he had longer appointments. Now, we just start to make progress and suddenly, times up.....next patient is waiting and i feel pressure to stop abruptly b/c I know how it is to have to wait before i see him.
Dr Richenstein is ethical, well-read in subjects of psychiatry, and kind. My only criticism is that he seems to be very invested in the medical model of mental illness (as are most psychiatrists it seems), so medication is in the picture. He is particularly insightful and helpful in issues around interpersonal relationships and life goals. He is not always punctual, but he never shorts people their full time. His office is calm and easy to deal with.
