Ratings for Dr. Alen J. Salerian
Dr. Salerian saved my life. I saw him faithfully for 12 years, once a month. It is terrible to find out he is in a sort of "prison." He actually spoke to me via gmail telling me that any help would be necessary. "They are threatening to imprison me."
Dr. Salerian is a good person and an excellent psychiatrist. He is passionate about the healing power of medicine. He is always behind schedule because he spends a lot of time with his patients in session. Every patient is a unique individual with a unique treatment plan and not just a cookie cutter case. I think he gets results. He certainly helped me for eight years.
Dr. Salerian is, by far, the best doctor that I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. His commitment to his patients (both their mental and physical health) and his medical knowledge is beyond reproach. I fail to understand how this witch-hunt against Dr. Salerian, which has now resulted in forcing him from his practice and passion, benefits his patients or the public good. This is a incredible miscarriage of justice and I pray that it will be corrected soon.
He is the only doctor that has been able to treat my depression/bipolar d/o and it is absolutely devastating that he is no longer practicing. I pray that his court case redeems his professionalism and quality treatment and allows him to return to practicing medicine.
This is one of the BEST doctors in the area. The only drawback is that sometimes he tends to run over with patients and he runs a little late. This is because he gives everyone the time that they need with him and treats everyone as an individual. Other than that I have no complaints and will say he is an expert in his field of work. He is not one of thse doctors that rushes you in and out. He is very compassionate, listens to what you have to say, and cares about his patients well being. He is not interested in just treating a person with medication. He advises you to exercise and eat well because he wants to make you feel better. He is truely an amazing doctor and I would refer him to all of my family and friends. He IS the BEST in this area and it took me years to find someone like him! His staff is also very friendly and compassionate.
Dr. Salerian's practice can be a difficult one to deal with. He is rarely on time if you don't visit him in the morning, and he doesn't accept insurance, which is par for the course for many psychiatrists but it's still not cool. His staff doesn't do much except keep the patients moving. But if you are a patient, Dr. Salerian will do anything, within the bounds of ethics, to help fix whatever is ailing you. He is aggressive in the use of all sorts of medications, far more so than most psychiatrists. I have suffered from depression and substance abuse problems for years, and Dr. Salerian was able to get me to feel "normal" for the first time in years without the use of illicit drugs. He did what at least six other doctors over twelve years could not do. I literally owe my life to him. It will take you a while to get an appointment and you will wait a whole in the office, and insurance might not reimburse. But he is worth it. He will help you.
