I've been seeing Dr.Stepanoff now for almost two years and I must say that he is the best therapist I've ever had. I've had many problems with depression and anxiety and I've seen about 6 different therapists and psychiatrists, all of which diagnosed me as having some sort of anxiety disorder and/or severe depression...You know, the generic diagnosis every therapist gives their patients when they don't know what else to say!!! However, the diagnostic process was much more elaborate with Dr.Stepanoff. I explained to him that I've always been a "nervous" person and can't deal with stress very well but depression just kind of seems to hit me out of nowhere every 6 months or so. I always thought I was bipolar but Dr.Stepanoff did hours of testing on me (which I never had before even though I've seen just about every therapist in Southern California) and he diagnosed me as having Adult ADHD. Little did I know that this is one of the most misdiagnosed mental disorders in women and is often confused with being Bipolar because the symptoms are apparently very similar. No wonder I was never properly diagnosed! Needless to say, Dr.Stepanoff was truly a Godsend! I feel better than ever now that I'm taking the appropriate medication and understand what the root of my problems and impulsivity are. I must say I read some unfavorable reviews about him and felt compelled to write a review after what he's done for me in my life. If you're the person who's looking for the stereotypical therapist who sits and nods and lets you ramble on for hours about your life, Dr.Stepanoff is not the man for you! Don't get me wrong, he is a great listener and is very thorough in his work. However, I would describe him as a very hands-on kind of doctor in that he wants to find a solution for you and get to the root of your problems as soon as possible (without jeopardizing the quality of his work of course). Now I don't know about the rest of my depressed and anxious family but I want a solution to my losing my will to live as quickly as humanly possible! This is why Dr.Stepanoff has been perfect for me.... he got to the root of my problems quickly and made his job seem effortless. Highly recommended:-)

Dr. Stepanoff has been a great doctor. I have been seeing him weekly for almost a year. When I forst had a problem and needed to seek treatment, he spoke to me directly on the phone and even made time to see me the same day. Other doctors wanted at least 2 weeks to book an appointment. Dr. Stepanoff understood that I needed help quickly and took the time to address my needs. I have been happy with his treatment and will continue to see him.

I think Dr Stepanoff is a great Dr!...He has helped me understand the basis of my problems, has worked with me regarding treatment options, and I cannot overstate...the importance of the one on one counseling I get from him...He is wonderful...I have been seeing Dr Ben for almost 10 years...and the change in my life is quite noticeable...I am quite happy with Dr Stepanoff, and with my ongoing progress. He's a good dr, and a good friend....someone you can trust...
