Testimonials for Dr. Suzanne Feinstein:
God bless you for all your brilliant guidance and astute understanding of OCD. I have been tortured with unbearable thoughts and images for most of my life. No one in my family could understand why I couldn’t just “snap out of it”. I was amazed at how well you could get into my head and predict exactly where my bully was going to set off my next emotional spike. You taught me how to watch my thoughts without judgment or reaction. I feel a liberation that I never thought was possible. You gave me the most important gift you can give someone, a healthy mind. You are truly a blessing.
I came to you severely scarred from head to toe due to a compulsive skin picking habit that ruled my life. I’ve missed work and social outings because of my embarrassment. I was a bit skeptical about treatment since I felt this was a disease that was beyond my control. After coming to see you, I soon learned that I could delay my urges to pick and ultimately gain complete control over my habit. I am so grateful for all the help you have given me.
Dear Dr. Feinstein,
What can I say! I’m a changed person after meeting you. You taught me how to laugh at the absurdity of my thoughts and make fun of my reactions to them. You used the perfect blend of humor, sarcasm, empathy and understanding to guide me out of my obsessive world and into the here and now. Thank you so much for all you do.
Dear Dr. Feinstein,
You made me feel sane when I felt insane and that is no small feat. I stopped riding subways, going into crowded places, and putting myself in any situation where I feared I might lose control. You taught me so much about panic attacks and the false alarms of the nervous system. I resisted going to therapy for years because I was so afraid a doctor would commit me. And instead you normalized it for me. Thanks to you, I am panic free.
Dear Dr. Feinstein,
I can’t believe it, Dr. Feinstein! I took my test yesterday without freaking out! Thank you so much for your help! I was surprisingly calm going into the exam and remained that way during the entire 3 hour test. I can’t believe how well I controlled my anxiety. And it’s all thanks to you!
Testimonials for Dr. Ori Shinar:
I cannot thank you enough for the support and guidance you offered me when I was going through a very emotional time in my life. You saw me through a bad break up and the death of my mother. Before seeing you, i had taken a leave of absence from school and quit my job in order to take care of my mother in her last months. I was becoming reclusive, depressed and not functional. You provided me with valuable tools to cope better with my difficult life situation and regain my perspective. My family didn’t know I was in treatment and after the third session mentioned how I seemed calmer and more content. You empowered me to take control of my life and that is exactly what I did. I will always be grateful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You got me to fly on an airplane in time for a very important business meeting across the country. I didn’t think I could do it but you taught me how to change my thinking about flying and keep myself relaxed while in flight. I’m so glad I was lucky enough to find the right doctor!
Just when I thought you couldn’t teach an old dog new tricks, you taught me a bunch of them! I’ve struggled with social anxiety all my life and was always too afraid to ask women out, make public speeches, or even tell a joke to a group of friends. You helped me build the confidence to do the things I’ve always avoided. I no longer feel that people are judging me in the way I think they are. I have started dating and enjoy social outings so much more since starting to see you. Thanks again for all your help.
If it weren’t for you, i would probably be bald by now. You helped me stop pulling after over 20 years of this damaging behavior. I never thought I would be able to stop and I did! You worked a miracle!
Dear Dr. Shinar,
You helped me more than you know. My panic attacks were landing me in the ER at least once a week and in just a few visits you taught me how to get them under control. I no longer worry that I’m having a heart attack. I understand how to control the symptoms and no longer fear the fear. You’re the best!
