He claimed to have my mental health history figured out after about 3 minutes of rapid-fire questions, which I find very suspicious. Very rude person. I got the feeling that since my bi-polar condition is mild, he didn't want to be bothered with me, that he only deals with severe cases. Very sarcastic, didn't give me much time to answer his questions.

Review
I have been a patient of Dr. Gokhale for 2 years now and I can honestly say that he is the best psychiatrist I have been to. After struggling to find someone that I was compatible with as a doctor I stumbled upon him on a pure whim. He is patient, kind, knowledgable, and has the ability to walk into the room and put you at ease. I am a very impatient person and majority of the time he is running behind schedule because he is also on call at the hospital, but I have never regretted waiting to see him.

To find someone that I enjoy seeing for disabilities that I despise having has made my life a lot easier. I would suggest him to anyone. He doesn't make you feel like you're problems are an embarrassment. Instead he makes you feel like a champion for being there.

The admin staff cancelled my appointment without notifying me or giving me a reason why. I took the time off work, drove to the next town over, tried to sign in and was told my appointment had been cancelled. At first the receptionist told me it was because I hadn't filled out the new patient form, but when I informed her I had and even called to confirm they had received it successfully, she just said, "I'm not sure what happened.

" After telling me to take a seat and talking on the phone for about ten minutes, she offered me an alternative appointment for several hours later. If you don't have a job, or anything to do during the day, maybe you wouldn't mind such treatment. (Assuming they could even keep this second appointment without inexplicably canceling it.) I'm just saying: I won't go back, and, if you value your time, don't even bother trying to schedule an appointment here.

Review
We went to Dr. Cozzens because someone had said they thought we could benefit from his great experience and \"straight talk\". Well, his straight talk turned out to be rude and condescending, not giving opinion based on bfacts, completely ignoring 7 years of testing we had on my child. He didn\'t even ask about prior diagnoses/testing, all he said was that my child \"outgrew his ADHD\".

Then he said some things that were damaging to my child, and I am so angry that I took my child to see him. If you have self-esteem issues, Dr. Cozzens has a horrible bedside manner and it is hard to believe that he is a psychiatrist, where talking to patients is the bread and butter of his business. He kept us waiting for nearly an hour in a small, stuffy, waiting room jammed with I think military folks because I think this Dr.

takes the military\'s insurance. That fact alone is sad -- our soldiers should be getting the BEST, not this, the WORST! Then, he prescribes a powerful medication, at too high a dosage. Luckily, I checked with another one of our family\'s physicians and they said that is too high a dose. This Dr. is dangerous at worst and rude at the least.

Do not waste your time and money on such an unprofessional doctor.

Avoid Dr. Johnson. Most importantly, don't take your child to this angry, arrogant, cruel man. I was a patient of Dr. Johnson's for several years, when I was a teenager. My parents paid this man thousands of dollars over the years, so that I could sit there and listen to him talk about his problems. He complained about his ex-wives, his two sons, his girlfriend. He would tell me about, and put down, other patients of his during my sessions.

He would put down, and mock, the parents of his child patients. He told me how parents got angry with him, because of how he spoke to their children. Dr. Johnson would imitate the parents in front of me. There were several times when Dr. Johnson put down, ridiculed, gay people. During one of my sessions, Dr. Johnson shared something with me that a gay patient of his had told him during a therapy session.

Dr. Johnson then conveyed to me how disgusted he was by having to hear about this gay patients' sex life. He sort of laughed and said "ewwww!!". Dr. Johnson brought up sex, without me bringing up the topic first. For example, one time, for no apparent reason, he told me this story about an adult patient of his who could not get an erection.

I don't know how that story is relevant to the life of a high school girl. Once he told me how Sandra, his girlfriend at the time, had a friend who had "nice tits". Again, I'm not sure why he told me that. Dr. Johnson missed his true calling in life...he should have been a truck driver, driving down the street, whistling at women. He likes to cuss in front of his child patients, for the shock value.

One thing that was weird was the way he could be angry, crude, and cruel one minute, and then the next minute he's talking about being a "happy and wholesome" guy. He was also flat out abusive to me. He said things to me like "Can you get that through your thick skull?". Another time he said to me "You don't have a brain.

hahaha". He seemed oblivious to what a terrible doctor he was. He would tell me "I'm the best therapist in the area and you're not going to find anyone better than me." LOL.Another doctor, who was a colleague of Dr. Johnson's, eventually was able to get Johnson to refer me to someone else. He felt that Johnson had "badly damaged" my life, and said that Johnson was a "terrible therapist".

He has no business being a psychiatrist.
