Best Psychiatrist in Atlanta - or the World!
Dr. Asaf Aleem, MD is without a doubt the best psychiatrist in the metro Atlanta area and one of the best in the country. I have been his patient since 1998, through many many office staff changes and management changes. I will be honest and say that there have been long long wait times, frustrating nurses, frustrating policies, and sometimes lack of customer service. I am writing this now though, after all these years, because I truly think these are in the past.
Dr. Aleem's office staff, Jenny and Erin, answer more phone calls in a day then I think most offices answer in a year and balance them masterfully. When they can't get to the phone the voice mail system now has extensions to leave messages for the two nurses Charity and Christy. Christy and Charity now have very separate roles - Christy handles all prescriptions and medication refills, along with insurance information, while Charity does the in-office paperwork and meets with patients in office. The wait to see Dr. Aleem has reduced GREATLY - I now have had to wait no more than a half hour, and the wait is well worth it.
Dr. Aleem is the kind of doctor that will sit down with you, look you in the eye, listen to you and your concerns, and react with compassion and concerns. He listens to my input, my side effects, what I'd like to do with medication, and then either vetoes my ideas or actually listens to me. Extremely intelligent and respectful. I would not see anyone else. Trust him with my life.
