Dr. Boazak and his team are absolutely incredible. Dr. B is such a wonderful, kind, and compassionate psychiatrist; One of the best I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He helped me when no one else would or could (even over my pain doctors when coming off rough medication - he was there for me and completely understood what to do). I would highly recommend Dr. Boazak to anyone struggling with their mental health! Please don’t hesitate if you’re in a dark place, he will not judge you or slight you, like some psychiatrists I’ve dealt with in the past. He’s truly on your side and will do everything in his power to help you find the light again, and yourself. Thanks so much for all you do, Doc!

Aside from the session with Pamela, the process of conducting this virtual session was seamless. Whatever program is in place to conduct the session was extremely user friendly to the patient/client. I believe that even for patients/clients that are not very familiar with similar technology, this would be the easiest!
