Psychiatry reviews in Wynantskill

    George, Dr. Kevin W.
    Dr. George had clearly read all the papers I filled out. He began to talk to me and quickly drew out of me some information that pointed to my diagnosis. He then presented me with the entry for Asperger's Disorder in the DSM IV TR (the current edition of the Bible for psychiatric diagnoses). I looked at the entry and found that most of the criteria applied to me. For this diagnosis, it is not necessary to meet all of the criteria, but a threshold number. This was my diagnosis. I had seen a number of psychiatrists and psychologists over the preceding 30 years. Not one ever mentioned a word about Asperger's. It was a great relief to have a name and a theoretical framework for understanding my problems. Dr. George figured this out in about 10 min. Amazing! There is no cure or targeted treatment (such as there are for diabetes and hypertension) for Asperger's. The best that can be done is to approach it indirectly and help the patient to cope with it as well as possible. I am a very tough nut to crack. Dr. George had to try numerous medications and combinations of medications to help me. He also emphasized that taking pills alone is not enough. The goal of psychiatry is to change the mind for the better, not just pump in chemicals. He also worked on psychotherapy with me. This was not easy for either one of us. I was diagnosed at 44 years of age. A lot of problems had built up. The biggest problem was that my mind was running away from me. I couldn't slow it down enough to use its potential for constructively addressing my problems through my mind, a necessary thing. The medications slowed my mind down enough to enable me to engage adequately with Dr. George's psychotherapy and help myself use what he was giving me. This took time. After seeing Dr. George, I was hit with the biggest crisis of my life. I could not have gotten through it had the previous treatment not improved and fortified me. Neither could I have made it through without Dr. George's ongoing help. Dr. George saved me from utter ruin. He has always been there for me when I needed him and has done outstanding work. Today, I am better off than either one of us had thought possible. Dr. George is head and shoulders above the rest of the psychiatric pack.

    He has been my doctor for seven years. He is an excellent doctor. He is not on my insurance anymore.

    Animal Emergency Center
    I was referred for medication management. The staff was accommodating, getting me in in a timely manner and were friendly. The doctor listened carefully, asked pertinent questions and gave clear instructions. Follow up visits were scheduled on a regular basis.

    Rappaport, Mark E.
    This guy is great. His office manner is really good. He's very knowledgeable. He's very caring and willing to work with the patient. He lets you talk. I read a lot about this lately with doctors. If you don't stop talking within 15 seconds, they are going to interrupt you. I give him an A for everything. He's absolutely the best.

    George, Dr. Kevin W.
    I have found Dr. George to be an excellent diagnostician and psychopharmacologist.  He has helped me when no one in 20+ years has been able to provide effective treatment.  His personal life, which has become public, is disturbing.  However it has not affected my treatment.

    George, Dr. Kevin W.
    Nothing but the highest grades for him.  Believe me because of the family situation I have seen a lot of different people in the mental health profession and he is quite superior.  What makes him stand out is his competency, his ability to interact with a person diplomatically but friendly and effectively.  I feel that there is a lot that distinguishes him from other people.  I find him to be the best psychiatrist, mental health professional to a family member that I have had to deal with.  He is very personable, caring.  All the things you look for in a doctor.  He respects the client and the client's family.  He is always respectful to me as a parent.  Personable, good sense of humor, caring, brings a lot of humanity to the profession.  Above all competent.  None of this is good if somebody isn't competent.  He is quite superior I believe.

    I go to the Psychiatrist to manage my meds and the Psychologist for counseling. I sing their praises. They really seem to know what they are doing. They are both very good. They are both very good listeners and they seem very professional. The office and staff is very good.

    They are right there if you have an emergency. They are so good. They are just very tuned in to each particular person, their needs, and their circumstances.

    Priest, Dr. Michael
    He has been very good for me. I have an anxiety disorder, which is his specialty. He has been very liberal about suggesting different medications and trying to see which works the best. He is very intelligent too! Buspar seems to be the drug of choice for anxiety. It can have a dizziness effect until one gets used to it. It is extremely good with calming thoughts and worries that can plague me. He is very personable and communicative.
