During COVID I found a psychiatrist and therapist taking new patients. They were wonderful and my mental health journey progressed so well. Often times finding a good doctor is half the battle, because they need a good staff. If you’re fortunate enough to get Mason on the phone when you call the office, you will know why this review is five stars!! He is AMAZING. He knows the doctor’s’ preferences (phone or video), the appointments he books don’t get changed, and he is super responsive!! Thank you for having someone so wonderful!!

I would like to highly recommend Revitalizing Psychiatry for a number of reasons. From the moment I walked into the office I was treated with the utmost of care, compassion and true professionalism. The entire staff was so helpful and attentive, with a heartfelt shout out to Leticia who was so kind and patient in helping me set up a zoom chat at the office ( as I am not very computer literate). Once settled in to the comfortable surroundings I felt at total ease. I then had an extremely beneficial and quite therapeutic session with the very competent and professional Dr. Nesterenko, and I am having very positive results as a result of our consultation. One more thing I would like to add is that you can actually get a hold of a someone right away without having to be burdened by being bounced around from voicemail to voicemail. I would also like to give Shelby praise as she was extremely accommodating. Just overall a professional and well managed practice, that I highly recommend!
