Amazing to find a holistic psychiatrist who gives natural treatments instead of drugs. I read the review by "Bob200911" and it sounds like a misunderstanding - sounds like "Bob" does not understand how homeopathy works. Sometimes you do

If my clients need a referral, I refer them to Dr. Richard Weintraub. He is not only of the most knowledgeable psychiatrists in the area, he is compassionate and patient. Funny, too. He is a real gem!

I had seen Weintraub for so long, I don't know why I was so scared to leave. Maybe because my anxiety wasn't any better, so I still didn't trust myself to find anyone else. My worst experience, and my last, was after a very scary emergency, landed me in the ER. It was terrifying, my pcp thought I had a brain aneurysm. Anyway, I missed my appointment that day, and Bobbi told me he was going to charge me for it! I thought emergencies might be considered differently than just cancelling, she told me no, and if I didn't like it, I could go somewhere else. This was after having such a hard time recently with him, thinking maybe he was burned out because he seemed less empathetic. I had told him once I felt suicidal (this was new, I never felt this way before, but did on a medication he prescribed), he didn't even follow up with me to see how I was after that. My new doc told me he was likely frustrated that he wasn't able to "fix" it, and maybe made him feel bad about his talents?! It was so painful to be treated as though he clearly didn't care if I lived or died, I am still so hurt by that. I have unresolved feelings over it, because I can't believe someone who is treating people with depression could be so calloused. I don't know that I will ever be able to resolve that feeling, but I can say that it was one of the worst experiences with a doctor that left me so shaken and so much more depressed. Either he's burned out, doesn't care, or didn't like me, whatever the reason, a psychiatrist without any empathy who doesn't care if you feel suicidal on a medication he is prescribing, should not be prescribing anymore.
