had me at hello

I'm not going back out there looking ever again. That's the skinny! To be fair, I have seen a therapist in the past and I have met with more than 2 psychiatrists, in the past. So, I knew what I was looking for, in part, based on past positive and negative experiences. I know that I need my psychiatrist to be intelligent and skillful, to be legitimately interested in helping me and listening to me -- not to make a snap decision about me, and then nod sometimes. I also know that I need to work with someone who is not just yessing me, so she can move on to the next patient. She 'get's it'. Either you'll know what that means or you wont. I dont think there's a better way to describe that quality. I've found what I need, and I am glad not have to wade through anymore of what I dont. Having seen plenty of the latter, it is very easy to for me to say that there are many more psychiatrists who definitely make sure that my appointment ends right on time, but cant or wont do more than as little as seems necessary at every appointment. I'm realistic in my expectations, but I know I need to work with someone who, is absolutely qualified, and who sees me as a person they are trying to help, at every visit. I have what I need, and know that for me, it was not easy the easiest find. I dont know what would be best for everyone. I think if you can relate to my story, you'll have stopped reading already, because you already know you've found it. And you'll probably reserve the same information, for those who would only really need it, for the same reason. If you cant relate to my story, then this probably wont help you find what you need. One last thing -- if you do actually know Dr. Itzkoff, you know how to reach her. If you think that the most obvious number listed on this site is the best way to reach her, well, you've never met THE Dr. Itzkoff. I dont know how that will affect your chances of meeting her ...

Horrific Experience

I had a very poor experience here. Misdiagnosis, incorrect meds, followed by a long stint in two hospitals. Doctor was hard to reach, in no way timely, and I was not helped at all. I had to find a psychiatrist in the midst of sudden onset mental illness symptoms, and this Doctor did not know what was going on. She was upset that I challenged her expert opinion as a 'clinician' about medication. I am glad people had positive experiences, and these reviews are subjective. I am just telling you my experience, which is that seeing this doctor was not just a waste of time and money, but nearly of my life.

Exactly the Doctor I Needed

I've worked with Dr. Itzkoff for two and a half years.... maybe a little more. When I made my first appointment, I thought I was suffering from a mild depression, even though I'd never been depressed before. Dr. Itzkoff easily worked me through that episode in a period of time so brief I cant remember if it was 1 month or 3 months. THEN she started helping me see so many things I'd never known about myself. And so many things I had known about myself but didn't believe. And so many things I had known, but told myself they weren't so. And with her most patient, dedicated, and truly artful help, I have had the opportunity to gain something I thought only existed in movies. I'd given up on ever getting to address most of anything about myself. Dr. Itzkoff has excellent bedside manner, is a genius, yet easy to talk to, and explains all my medication to me in plain English, as all great doctors should. But Dr. Itzkoff saved my life and then she taught me how to keep my me life, for me, because I'm happy. I never thought I'd say that.

Good, when present.

I began seeing Dr. Itzkoff two years ago for a variety of psychiatric problems and until recently, she was as good a doctor as I could hope for. She was incredibly responsive by e-mail, phone, and text, and really helped me get my life in order. However, in late September 2011 she stopped returning my (multiple, but not stalker-esque) e-mails and texts (our preferred means of communication). This lack of communication is troubling for two major reasons: 1) I was taking two medications that it can be dangerous to stop taking cold turkey and I was left without access to refills or medication; and 2) since I have gone a couple of months months without treatment or medication, my behavior is erratic and I have been self medicating with alcohol. I informed Dr. Itzkoff of this issue a few days ago but still no reply. She has always had some minor issues with professionalism (re: missed appointments without warning), but it was easy to overlook because she was so nice and effective. I'd say... caveat emptor.

Just to distinguish

Apparently I share a very common name with a poster on this site. To be clear, I have NEVER made any inappropriate or sexually base or lewd comments about this, or any other doctor. Nor would I. My stomach turns at the thought of his comments being attributed to me. I am also not the Mr. Cooper who posted this on his twitter feed: dancoopermedia Dan Cooper ""Oh man, I spent one hour on the phone...[with a] doctor ... Will somebody shoot her please? #diedie 3 Nov

BEST psychiatrist

I've never written on one of these things.But I just have a few things I need to say. Dr. I is absolutely the BEST psychiatrist. She has treated me for about 2 years. She is all the things a doctor should be, with respect to knowledge and credentials. (Actually, she kinda awesome in that department). But what I really need to say is that Dr. I has been there for me like no other doctor I've ever seen. I'm anxious. I'm anxious right now that by writing this, people will take my doctor away from me. But I have to be honest. In more difficult times, I was MORE anxious. Dr. I has been so so so patient with me. She has explained everything so carefully, as many times as I've needed. And she has been there for me. She has returned my calls at 11pm, 2am and 4am (not that I still need her then anymore). Dr. I is so responsive. so careful. so available. And, I can talk to her so easily. She is not at all like other doctors in that way that they come across as kinda like they have no idea what a regular person is like... you know? She is the only psychiatrist I trust. period. Now only call if you really need her, because I'm not giving her up!

America's BEST shrink

Dr. Itzkoff has consistently gone above and beyond to help me. She has been there for me, when, in my previous experience, no other ""shrink"" EVER was. She is a genius, an expert psychopharmacologist, and really, an absolutely superbly knowledgeable doctor all around. But more than that, she has consistently demonstrated care, concern, and dedication. I really dont think there is anyone out there who could even come close to helping me the way Dr. Itzkoff has. There never has been before. You couldn't pay me to see anyone else!

I couldnt live without her ... literally

dr itzkoff cares so genuinely for me. i know that because she has worked with me, and worked with me, and worked with me. through my own doubts. through times i didnt think she, or anyone, would be there for me when I was truly honest. when other doctors HAVE turned on me. when we have lacked a clear solution, this doctor has forged on with me, to FIND one and I know that she always will ... even when without her, I know, I know, that i would not. or i could not. im not sure of the difference. that is how she saves my life every day. literally.

Unprofessional

Dr. Itzcoff seemed extremely kind and understanding at first. She appeared to be very knowledgeable in the field of psychopharmacology. I tried many medications with her, constantly voicing my concern for weight gain. She prescribed cymbalta, claiming tha there were no weight gain side effects. I not only gained 35 pounds, but trying to stop the med led to many other horrifying side effects. Not long after my father suddenly passed away. Dr. Itzcoff prescribed medication and was very sympathetic in this situation. However, a couple of months later after a few attempts to reach her for an appt and for medication refill, she never returned my call. I went through yet another painful withdrawal because of this. I am now 35 pounds plus, in no better (if not worse) state when I first saw her, and am extremely dissatisfied with her lack of professionalism.

be all you can be!

dr. itzkoff took the time to hear out all of my concerns. though i was hesitant to try all she recommended, she has helped me so much! i never knew if i could be helped, but dr. itzkoff cared about me. she adjusted my medication with painstaking care and then we began talk therapy. she showed me so much i had never pieced together, and all of that is really paying off! old habits are falling by the way-side and I finally am that person I knew I could be inside!
