    Jana Vengrin Health
    My first appointment went great, yet, when I tried to reschedule my next appointment with her, she seemed to vanish off the face of the Earth. After sending many messages on email and voicemail for a week, I still have not received any response from her. I am not unreasonable: I wouldn't be upset if she responded with "no." I am upset because she still did not get back to me.

    He got me in within a week and really knew what he was doing.  He is definitely a medical doctor not a therapist.  I highly recommend him.

    Jana Vengrin Health
    I arrived early but Jana invited me into her office as soon as the previous patient left. I had been hesitant about establishing this new professional relationship but Jana made me feel comfortable and in good hands right from the beginning of the hour session. Jana is easy to talk to and really listens. She explained things about my drugs that I didn't know and suggested we try a slight modification of the drugs. I feel very confident in Jana's professionalism and knowledge and look forward to next month's visit. I would definitely recommend Jana to anyone who is in need of a competent and caring psychiatric nurse practitioner.

    Jana is amazing. She really listened to me and helped me by providing guidance, support, and direction for me to identify the roots and causes of many of the issues I was having. She is a godsend in the way that she truly treats me as the individual person that I am. I honestly would not be the healthy and functional person I am without her help. I finally have some peace inside and it is because of her help.

    Behavioral Healthcare of Ny
    Back in 2010 they had a competent psychiatrist on staff. The original psychiatrist quit, as did several in succession--the reason might be the owner, Errol Nadler, who has been unable to staff the facility with a real psychiatrist. Instead, he employs a nurse practitioner, who is not only underqualified but also lacks the temperament and skill to handle the issues to which she has been assigned. My spouse was subjected to lies, misrepresentations, repeatedly incorrect diagnoses, and resentment. At one point the nurse practitioner prescribed medication, then, to make a point, rescinded the prescription so that when I arrived to pick it up, the pharmacy personnel told me that she had called to rescind it. In short, I became uncertain whether my spouse should have been treating both Mr. Nadler and the nurse practitioner rather than the other way around. Eventually, as my wife's condition worsened thanks to Behavioral Health's incompetence, my spouse had to check in to the psychiatric emergency room at Kingston Hospital. In keeping with their pattern, and given my spouse's chronic anxiety, depression, and emotional instability, Mr. Nadler then took it upon himself to write her an insulting dunning letter. This was on top of their telling the Kingston Hospital emergency room that they were prescribing lithium, but then not prescribing it. Their game playing and writing an insulting letter to a mental patient shocked me; the American mental health system appears to be in extremis, and this place is the bottom of the coffin. Mr. Nadlers' concern is your money and not your mental health. I very much wonder what the "cure rate" for Behavioral Health is. My wife went there for years with no improvement. They made things worse. Stay away from this place.

    Kishor Zinzuvadia MD
    The drugs perscribed did help me, I was on my own from there. I had a Social Security hearing, he didn't send the requested information to my lawyer or the court. Given 2 months to comply, they simply put the letter requests in my file. They didn't bother to tell me that I needed to do anything to take care of this.Staff was not helpful when my lawyer called, after much pressure from myself and my lawyer did they fax the miniscule files that they had. I can't tell you how much stress this has caused me. It has really set me back. It is terrible when the person you have entrusted your fragile mental well being behaves in a way that not only unprofessional but callous. I later found out when I changed doctors that Dr. Zinzuvadia's office was charging the insurance company for hour visits for all the 15 minute visits I had where he just gave me a scipt and sent me on my way.

    She is very helpful, intuitive and flexible.  She is available on Saturdays which is very convenient for me due to my very busy schedule.

    St Francis Hospital
    It took about twenty minutes before we were sent to the psychiatric unit after the emergency room triage which wasn't much of a wait but once we got to the psych unit we were told that we had to wait for the ER doc to clear my son of medical issues before we could see a psychiatrist. Fair enough. The psych staff asked my son to change clothes and they made him wear a paper outfit before asking him to sit back down in the waiting room. So we waited. And waited. And waited. I asked if my son was going to get a room or a bed but I was informed that there were no beds for adolescents. The two existing ER psych beds were taken so that meant my poor kid had to sit in the waiting room area in front of other patients' families in the throes of a very bad emotional attack with hospital clothes on and no one seemed to care. I assured him that once he was cleared by the ER doc, they would find him a bed. Wrong. We sat in the waiting room for at least an hour and a half before the ER doc came and examined him right there in the waiting room chair! Just awful. After that, we were told that he would never get a room as there were none and we would have to wait for the psychiatrist who would "hopefully" see him soon. I figured that was a bad sign. About two hours into our wait, two policeman appeared with a man in leg shackles and handcuffs and escorted him the chair in front of us where he would be triaged by the psych nurse. No curtain, no closed door, nothing!! We had to sit there while this poor guy had to recount for all to hear why he was in jail, why they'd brought him to the psych unit, his drug abuse problems, restraining order, etc. I was appalled.  Were they kidding??  HIPPA violation, anyone?? It was awful. Finally, after hearing this guy discuss all of his personal info in front of an audience, (me, my son, my husband, other patients' parents, other patients who were waiting) they cops uncuffed him and left. Two minutes before, he was shackled from head to toe, and now he's sitting two feet away from me and my son completely unguarded?  Though he wasn't a danger, the whole incident had me very rattled and angry that this guy had been humiliated like that in front of so many spectators. Finally, after about 3 hours, the "psychiatrist" appeared and questioned my son, again with no benefit of a closed door, curtain or any semblance of privacy whatsoever. He did not want me to sit with my son so when my son couldn't answer certain questions, I had to shout across the room at them (in front of everyone) what our mental health history was, was meds he was taking, what his symptoms were, etc. etc. Appalling. So this doctor barely spoke English, asked my son the same stupid question about six times (Have you ever been here before? Have you ever been in this unit before? Weren't you here in this hospital before? Have you been to this hospital before?) after my son kept answering him, NO, NO, NO. I've NEVER been here before. It was ridiculous. This doctor went on to chastise me in a very condescending way about utilizing the emergency room for my son who should have just been taken to a psychiatrist. Too bad my psychiatrist wasn't available so I was told to go to the emergency room! It was a joke. This doctor did nothing for my son. Couldn't care less about him and then forgot a prescription he was supposed to write so we had to wait another half hour at least for him to finally write it and get it sent to us. After he did that, we left, only to get a call from the nurse that the prescription hadn't been signed! We had to go back and wait another twenty minutes in the parking lot for the script to get signed!!! It was a horrific experience from beginning to end. I will never, ever, under even the most dire of circumstances, go back to this hospital. If I'm in a car accident and they want to take me here, I will insist they take me to Vassar which is considerably further. The worst hospital experience EVER!!!!!!!!!!!
