Psychiatric Care Reviews in Baltimore

I would rather get my teeth cleaned than visit a psychiatrist who is new to me. I chose to go to
for my primary care because they are supposedly an open-minded, community-based organization. I was told that I should visit Dr.
to get guidance on a medicine I was starting to use for the first time. I have worked with psychiatrists before professionally and I think his bedside manner is the worst of all the psychiatrists I have met.

When I came for my appt, I did not have to wait for very long (it was in the AM). He said my name, walked with me to his office, and immediately started asking me questions about my marital status, sexual orientation, etc. He did not say anything about the process of the appointment, nor did he give me a heads-up that he would be asking lots of personal questions. Yes, even though I knew he was going to ask a lot about my history, moods, health, etc, I still think it is appropriate to ask permission or, at least, warn a person that an appt is going to last over an hour (as mine did) and be full of lots of questions.

For the entire appt, he sat behind a computer and typed my answers. He gave no warning that he would be doing this; instead, he looked at the computer screen at least 85% of the time. Also, he would sit and type and SAY NOTHING for minutes at a time. I felt very removed from the whole experience, as though it would take too much time to look me in the eye, empathize, or let me know "hey, I have a lot to type, I want to get it all down, please bear with me."

I was also put off that he does not have very good office hours--- during my 2nd appt with him, he got annoyed that he had to stay late by 15 mins (5:15!) because I had questions about a new medicine. His last appt is at 430. When I said that I prefer evening appts, he told me that I should be able to ask my employer for time off under the Family Medical Leave Act-- as though I want to tell my employer that I have a psychiatry appt!

I would not recommend going to see him unless you are someone who does not like to have an emotional connection with their psychiatrist. I have not met her myself, though there is another psychiatrist (female) on-staff who DOES offer evening hours, though I hear there are lots of people who request her (go figure), so she is not currently accepting new patients. I know, I tried to switch.

Actually, when I asked one of the staff members about the process of switching, she asked me why I wanted to do so. I said that the other professional offers evening hours, which work better for me, and that I have a "personality clash" with Dr.
. She said, "I get it" when I mentioned the latter reason, almost as though she has heard that before.

I was referred to Dr. Nesdadt by another
physician for a second opinion on what was then a recent diagnosis, which had involved treatment with medication that kept me up night after night and made me extremely anxious, which had not been something I ever suffered from at that time. Dr. Nesdadt did a thorough evaluation, changed my diagnosis and medications and has followed me ever since. I have had true psychological peace since that time. This is a kind, understanding, non-judgmental man who is brilliant at what he does. He has had much experience in his field and he knows how to get to the important stuff without dilly dallying around, yet you never feel rushed or pushed. If Dr. Nesdadt specializes in the area you need help in, I highly recommend him. If he cannot help you, he will know who to send you to at
