Just the best, 9/05/2010

I have been a patient of Dr Kamins for a number of years. He and his assistant, Rachel, are top notch. He has stuck with me through thick and thin and has been enormously helpful. He has an excellent... knowledge of pharmacology and a great personality. He and Rachel always get back to their patients by phone or email. You can't go wrong.

OVER PRICED AND NON-COMMITTAL, 4/15/2010

Dr. Kamins does not take an aggressive stance about your mental heath issues. He is also over-priced, due to he doesnt take insurance - so EVERYTHING is out-of-pocket.

worst experience yet w. a psych. professional...

I suffer from bouts of anxiety/ depression, and was looking for a new Dr., to discuss meds, etc., and was in a very poor state of mind when I went to visit Dr. Kamins (this i fully admit) ... I provided him w. an extensive history however, and made him completely aware of what was going on w. me, in a very detailed discussion I was having w. him...\r\r- in the middle of our session, he informed he that I was ""snappy with him"" and defensive, and that it was not helpful or appreciated, and that it would not be helpful to the session... at that point, after coming to him for help, when feeling my worst, i was even more upset and frustrated, and asked him if he wanted me to leave??? - \r\r-He even asked me if other psych's. had ever mentioned this to me before... and he was wondering why i was so upset and angry... (hello, i am depressed, stressed - that is why i was there???!!!) - I have never had a mental health professional speak to me in this way, and in this profession, they should be able to deal w. ""difficult"" patients and personalities... it IS part of the job..... \r\r- what bothered me the most was how he made a big deal of telling me that if he did not want to help, he would not spend so much time... and asked if any other psych. ever had... when i told him ""yes"" he just said, hmmmmm. - whatever\r\rhe made me feel uncomfortable and seemed to not ask appropriate questions, and listened to approx. half of what I was telling him... i left spending a lot of money, with little help, and will not be going back... - i would not recommend...

Meticulous, detail-oriented, and knowledgeable

I've been going to Dr. Kamins for over four years for management of my adult ADD. I found him through the service provider listing on the LD Adults of Georgia website after going to three general practitioners in a row who either didn't believe in ADD or believed that it should be treated with non-stimulant medications only. (These doctors ignored my ten-year medical history and discounted my reports of bad side effects from the new medication they recommended.) By contrast, Dr. Kamins listens attentively to everything I say, is up-to-the-minute with medical research on the conditions he treats, and actively works with me to find the best solution. He answers emails (!) and takes meticulous notes in every session. He will remember medically relevant details from two years ago, and is willing to think outside the box - for example, he'll make sure that psychological symptoms aren't being caused by physical or environmental factors, rather than giving you a knee-jerk prescription for Prozac. He is quiet, soothing, and compassionate, and has never discounted my opinion or talked down to me. I highly recommend him for treatment of adult ADD and depression.

Thoughtful and intelligent care

I have been impressed with his attention to detail and willingness to listen. Sadly he is not accepted by my insurance, but I have stayed with his office for six years because of the high standards of patient care.

Consummate professional, impeccable credentials

Dr. Kamins doesn't disappoint. The quality of initial care and time taken during my intake interview remains constant, now nine years later. I have referred other professionals and medical professionals to him and never received anything but the most positive feedback. His knowledge and continuing study of psychopharmaceuticals sets him apart from his peers. This Ivy League trained fellow treats everyone very respectfully, everyone. He is seriously admirable.

The BEST, period!

I have been a patient of Dr. Kamins for about 10 years. He is very kind, understanding,patient and non-judgemental. He takes his time and listens well. Oh yeah, he is the smartest guy around! Knows his stuff...very accomplished within his field. He is meticulous with note taking and can tell me something we discussed or did for treatment many years back. This allows him to be great at finding patterns. His office is also run like a well oiled machine. Staff is always well versed on insurance issues etc. He's the best. You can't go wrong!

Great Care

Dr. Kamins is a great doctor! He listens to what you have to say and remembers things you have discussed from months or years ago. He has your best interests in mind and it shows.
