I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

Dr. V. Rudoy is a wonderful doctor. Very professional and attentive. I have been seeing him for psychiatric care for a number of years and highly recommend him and this office in general. I’ve seen other psychiatric professionals who work with Dr. Rudoy here on occasion and they are all very competent and warm-hearted.

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!

I met with Mary Parker, a nurse practioner. She was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. After asking questions about my history, she discussed different treatment possibilities. I was happy with the session and look forward to meeting with her again on a regular basis
