A.M. ~Berkeley, Ca.
I was a little hesitant to see Mike. I was wary of paying out of pocket for someone I knew little about. However, I had been given the run around so much by my HMO, I felt I had little to loose. After seeing him, I have faith in doctors once again.
He took the time to actually ask me about my history, my symptoms, my family, and really tie the pieces of the puzzle together. He didn’t just read the standard diagnosis for ADHD straight out of a parenting magazine like most doctors seem to.
He also explored other areas such as sleep apnea, options to lower my blood pressure, and even offered to call my general practitioner at my HMO. How many psychiatrists will be that thorough?
Bottom line, if you want results from a really intelligent psychiatrist that will take the time to figure out what is really wrong, call him.
