    How was your appointment with Dr. Heitner?

    Aug 10, 2020
    I trust Dr Heitner more than any of the other half-dozen psychiatrists I have seen over the past decade. He is easy to speak, very attentive and will actively problem-solve with you when life gets stressful. He is quite liberal in his use of medication - if it helps, he doesn't get bogged down by approved indications or best practice guidelines. He makes himself very available when needed - I have seen him as much as three months apart and as frequently as twice a week. He's more than happy to suggest treatment options he doesn't provide. Two downsides. First, since he takes as much time as needed with each patient, he often runs behind schedule. Second, he has a tendency to jump to conclusions or dismiss 'unusual' concerns. He is willing to re-consider his opinion, but I sometimes find that I need to assert and re-assert myself more often than I would have liked.
