Great psychiatrist for those who need prescription management or already see a psychologist/LSW/MS/etc. He's very frank and doesn't bother to feign compassion, but he is a doctor that doesn't had out scripts and samples for the latest, useless psyc meds (Paxil ER, Xanax ER? gimmie a break). He does keep up with whatever newer meds that have strong evidence/new molecules. He really tries to work out which meds and doses work out best. The kinda doc that still prescribes xanax but isn't loose with it. I remember once when I was losing my insurance for a summer; he agreed to see me free of charge. Now that's a doctor that actually keeps his Hippocratic oath in this screwy healthcare system. Made me regret the first psychiatrist I stuck with for 4 years who made sure I was on the latest brand name drug that rarely/barely helped.
