My first visit was fine. He seemed a little stiff, but nice. I have no idea what went wrong at the second visit. I had called him and told him earlier that I had not started the meds b/c I had a few questions. My next appt was awful! He didn't sit down for the first half of the appt. He was busy making tea and filing. When we got to the fact that I didn't like one of the meds he gave me b/c of the giant warning label and 5 pages of warnings from the pharmacist. He didn't explain the warning(as my next Dr did). He just instantly got angry with me. When he altered the medicine plan, he asked if I was going to take it. I said I wanted to discuss it with my husband. He wondered why my husband would care and said just don't tell him. When I said my husband might have objections(I doubted he would but we are both cautious about meds and I didn't want to say I would take it and then not do it.) his response to this was......well if this is the kind of marriage you have don't bother taking the medicine you are going to be miserable anyway. Keep in mind he already knew I was feeling hopeless about my situation. He then said maybe I am short today because I don't feel well. Well then he should have STAYED HOME!! I left feeling far worse than when I arrived. I left him a message later saying I would not be back and that I thought his attitude was inappropriate. I hoped I would at least get an apology. The closest I got was in a message he left he said he apologized if he was too "strident" with me. Jerk. I would not recommend him to anyone because who knows when he might have a cold again. He is by far the most irresponsible, rude and hurtful doctor I have ever met. Thankfully I have a new dr and all is well now, no thanks to Dr. Magulac.

Dr. Magulac gets to know his patients well and therefore can help get down to the major issues that you have. He doesn't treat you like a patient. He makes it friendly like a friend.

Ben and I both enjoy our visits with Dr. Magulac. We appreciate the relaxed, gentle approach taken, along with the sense of humor Dr. Magulac has. I feel we have his full attention while we are with him.

I'm always amazed at how good and positive I feel after seeing Dr. Magulac. It only takes a minute for him to put into positive perspective what I have been going through for the previous 3 months. Love you!

Dr. Magulac has been my doctor for 12 years and he is truly the best psychiatrist for any age group. He is not only a doctor that prescribes medication but an encouraging and honest friend as well. I greatly recommend Dr. Magulac.

We've always been extremely confident in Dr. M after having had several recommendations for him of seeing other doctors first. Dr. M identified some key issues that had been overlooked by previous doctors and continues to be able to focus on us as an individual, not just a diagnosis.

Dr. Magulac is really talented and sweet. Dr. Magulac could read people very well and says all the right thing. I don't know if the doctor is just charming or just really know what people want. I think both and I am thankful that, that's my doctor.

Dr. Magulac deeply cares about his patients. He listens well and considers all variables, He is not afraid to do what is necessary even if whatever it may be is unpleasant. He is also a friend not just a doctor.

Dr. Mark, we like the humor that loosens us up for the important things we need, such as to think and talk about. I need the challenge to keep working on our support system for our well being.

Dr. Magulac is a caring individual who takes the time to get to know you personally as a long term patient. I know I am not a number. I am someone he really cares about and wants to help. Thank you for taking the time to know me as me and not just a case number. God Bless

Dr. Magulac is an extremely helpful, compassionate and goes to great lengths to explain things to his patients. He is very detail oriented and goes out of his way to contact you by phone when you leave a message. This is a rare breed in the world of Psychiatry. This coming from someone within the field of medicine. I cannot say enough about how much our family thinks of this doctor. He has done wonders with one of our children!

Dr. Magulac is punctual, he avidly listens to your personal concerns, he is detailed when it comes to why he is medicating as he does. He explains what medication does what and gives overly adequate instructions as to how to take the medication. His knowledge in his field is evident and he goes above and beyond for patient care. He is always available in case you have any questions and readily accepts and questions pertaining to medications or care. He would come highly reccomended by me.
