  • I have been seeing Dr. Pulaski for 16 years. That in itself is remarkable because, 16 years ago, a famous neurosurgeon assured me that I would not be around for very long - unless I agreed to have potentially devastating surgery to remove what appeared to everyone - except Dr. Pulaski - to be an almost inoperable brain tumor. Dr. Pulaski is a brilliant and patient physician who correctly diagnosed my condition as a bleed rather than a tumor. In so doing, he helped me avoid potentially devastating surgery. He worked very effectively with my internist, surgeon, radiologist and cardiologist to correctly analyze and treat my condition. It is a rare privilege in life to meet someone who is perfectly adept at what they do. Such encounters are perhaps obvious to us when we encounter a brilliant performer in music or the arts - but not so obvious in the medical field, This physician is a Leonard Bernstein of his profession. You want him as your conductor to direct the treatment of the most difficult neurological conditions and to work with your surgeon or other physicians. I have worked extensively in the health care field during my career and I have never met a physician for whom I have greater respect and gratitude.

  • Perfect. Dr. Pulaski challenged the views of surgeons who urged me to have immediate brain surgery for what they believed to be a fatal glioma. He worked closely with my other physicians, correctly diagnosed my condition as merely a bleed originating from a congenital hole in the heart and convinced the others that their diagnosis was incorrect. In so doing he saved me from potentially debilitating surgery. Dr. Pulaski is the finest physician I have ever had the privilege to know. I cannot recommend him strongly enough.

  • I had a very bad experience with this woman. While nice and perhaps well-intentioned, she seriously mishandled a delicate issue. I specifically asked that the issue be approached a particular way, and she either consistently forgot or disregarded my request despite repeated reminders. I left her practice in pretty bad shape emotionally, and it took me a very long time to look for and trust a new therapist.

  • This is the first time a doctor has successfully instilled fresh habits and an approach to health that derives from my own motivations and knowledge. Dr. Kahan's advice along with the other professionals in his practice allowed me to make sharper decisions about medications, nutrition, physical activity, and cognitive behavior.

  • Psychiatric evaluation and consultation was outstanding, insightful and professional; we wished to continue. However, the administrator of the Center was unprofessional and troubling and resulted in our terminating treatment at Center. Issues concerned insurance and an involuntary change of therapist because the intake psychiatrist accepted Medicare elsewhere but could not at the Ross Center. (We had paid cash for the evaluation). The administrator said we had to change to a non-Medicare-receiving staff for treatment in accordance with Ross Center policy. Ross, of course, can have any policy they wish, but it is unprofessional to present this after intake rather than before. Building trust with a new patient is crucial to future work. The psychiatrist could not follow-up in his private practice after the initial work took place at Ross--conflict of interest issue.

  • She was amazing. She listened and gave solid advice and "homework" on things I could work on during the week. On top of her masterful understanding of psychology, Heather used humor, poetry and philosophy to lighten the mood and make deeper connections between my personal experience and the human experience, which is really what we all seek. I personally responded to this style of therapy better than any I had previously encountered because she gave me a language that didn't feel out of place-- that I could use when I was feeling down or overwhelmed. She made me feel so much better in the 6 months I went to her, and then we both agreed that I was good to go back out there on my own. She also made it clear that I could come back at any time. She is very flexible like that. Overall, Heather Williams might not be what you expect at first because she won't just sit there and listen to you drone on about your hardships unchecked. She will interject compassion and resourceful guidance to the point where you are having a conversation with a highly trained, very wise woman who will empower you to change your life, because at the end of the day, you are the only one who can change it. Her office is quiet and in a great location, so I looked forward to going every week. She doesn't have an assistant, but is very responsive and accountable.

  • She has helped me connect dots other therapists hadn't. I didn't always like the process but I can say that my relationship with my parents has improved because of the deeper understanding of our family structure I received through counseling with Heather. She continues to help me navigate tough situations with a wider vision and commentary of social structure, rather than just focusing on my perceptions. In other words, tremendously helpful in gaining an objective insight and learning to make decisions based on those insights.

  • From my experience, Heather is expertly suited to handle any discussion, any situation. She is so thoughtful and wise and uses humor and levity to lighten up your perspective. She's like a Yoga guru or your cool aunt who's tried everything and she gives expert advice-- kinda like Patti Smith. Her style of therapy is very different from some psychologists I've been to and was very effective in bringing me out of a mental rut and back to my normal self. And I always left feeling better, because we were able to work through some negative habits and she gave me homework to do. She doesn't just sit there and stare at you, she talks to you, she opens up, and because of that warmth and authenticity, she is very easy to trust and it's easy to respect her judgement. I have recommended her to several close friends because I believe in her ability to calm the mind and open the heart.

  • I have worked with many psychologists/therapists over the years and have never found someone as talented, experienced, and interested as Jim Presant. I feel very lucky and grateful for finding him and having the opportunity for over a year with working with him. He has helped me in so many ways including addressing my anxiety & depression as well as helping me become more productive at work. He has been a life saver and I am a person who never writes reviews. His experience and techniques with cognitive behavioral therapy are amazing as well as ways to reduce stress.

  • I have seen Heather almost weekly for about two months.  I find her to be a good listener, smart  and empathetic.  She has a clear way of communicating.  I feel like each session takes me a step further in the direction I want to go.  She seems to understand my needs and gives me a sense that together we are on the right track.  I find many of the things she explains to me to be really effective in helping me gain a better understanding of my situation.  She also gives me effective tools that help me deal with situations in ways that have achieved positive results.  I will continue to seek her guidance as I am seeing results from her therapy that are making me feel better and more optimistic.
