I have been a patient of Dr. Lusskin’s for almost 4 years. I have found Dr. Lusskin to be extremely intelligent and very easy to talk to. She is extremely punctual and professional. I like her direct manner and her realistic outlook on life. I have become more confident and assertive in areas that matter the most. Though difficult to talk about issues in my life I have found my appointments to be very beneficial.

I have been seeing Dr. LUSSKIN for 25 years for depression and anxiety. She successfully helped me with postpartum depression. She is an expert in postpartum depression and is a pioneer in medicating patients safely during pregnancy to minimize symptoms and have a healthy baby. She is honest and tells you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. Thanks to her advice, I have learned from her and been able to manage life’s ups and downs.

Dr. Lusskin is an astute, patient, and responsive psychiatrist. She makes herself available to patients in times of need, and is willing to go the extra mile in helping her patients address concerns they have outside of the office, be it sending articles that are applicable to sessions discussions, or contacting her colleagues in the medical field. She makes it clear that her patient's well being is paramount, and helps her patients make plans to take control of their own lives and be independent.

I've been seeing Dr. Lusskin for over a year now. What I appreciate most about Dr. Lusskin is that she doesn't over-doctor. She doesn't ask you to come see her just for a fee and but gauges how you are doing and when would be the most appropriate time to see her. She also realizes that typically, the reasons why you go to see her in the first place don't magically disappear because you've seen her - just like going to the gym to stay healthy, you don't stop after the first month when you might be more energetic and have lost 5 lbs. Staying healthy in body and spirit requires maintenance, so she won't abandon you after you say you're feeling better. Dr. Lusskin is a sounding board for what is rational, almost like a reality check. Some of what she tells you might be obvious, but we often forget the obvious and need a reminder. Ultimately, it is up to each patient to decide whether Dr. Lusskin is right for them and whether to follow any of the suggestions she gives. The important thing is that Dr. Lusskin helps determine what some of your options are, but will never force an option on you.

I saw a lot of doctors for my PMS but no one really helped me until  I met Dr. Lusskin. She made the right diagnosis and the right medicine and gave me my life back.

Excellent Doctor. Saw Dr. Lusskin after a long undiagnosed bout of postpartum depression and anxiety. She immediately validated my feelings and helped me understand that what I was going through was "normal" for many. After 3 months, I am back to feeling like myself and have the foundation that Dr Lusskin gave to thank for my turnaround.

I have been seeing Dr. Lusskin for almost 2 years. I began seeing her when my son was 9-weeks-old and ever since starting treatment with her my life has changed for the better. She is extremely knowledgeable, always available even in between appointments if I need to change an appointment or am in crisis, and I believe has helped me go from wanting one child after the depression from my first to now seeing me through my second pregnancy. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Lusskin.

I am a patient of Dr Lusskin 3 years now. I was shocked and horrified to see the negative ratings posted. Dr. Lusskin is a highly professional and caring doctor. Dr. Lusskin does everything in her capacity as a well connected doctor to help her patients. Her involvement in my life, beyond that which concerns her professional field, reflects her complete devotion. Dr. Lusskin takes responsibility, advocates o for patients and accepts critic. Though she may be strong minded- that is her success!
