My experience with Dr. Ceballos is very different from those noted. I am an experienced nurse practitioner and have worked in the field for 17 years (in psychiatry as well). When my child had a psychiatric emergency, Dr. Ceballos was present and offered support without enabling behaviors that are counter-productive to the emotional development of my child or young adult as she prefers. It has been 3 years since this happened. While, I sympathize with the situations that others have found with Dr. Ceballos, I beg to differ. Medications for mental illness are used and changed throughout the course of a patient's life-span. Without thorough understanding of the process of diagnostics related to mental illness, it is unfair to claim that the doctor ""spends too short a time"" with a patient when he spends 15 minutes with a patient. An experienced physician such as Dr. Ceballos can assess, diagnose and treat patients in this amount of time and MOST do. Perhaps, some patients seek the care of a therapist, which is very different from a medical doctor who prescribes medications for psychiatric disorders. Dr. Ceballos is advanced in his career and has been excellent as a provider for my child. I have recommended him to many colleagues and will continue to do so. In addition, the outcomes of his care with regard to my daughter are above standard of care and positive. Many people believe that ""taking a pill"" will cure a psychiatric disorder. It is one step in the treatment of disorders. Responsibility for behaviors is often a painful process but is imperative in growth and development. Cognitive-behavioral therapy and other interventions are often needed to facilitate in the treatment of patients and this is true for my daughter. Dr. Ceballos has helped us to help our 14 year old daughter. It is NOT easy and life-long behaviors cannot be changed with one pill. It is also important to realize that Dr. Ceballos cannot parent his patients. That is my job.
Pros: Dr. Ceballos is a professional psychiatrist with skill that has positively affected our lives
Cons: I cannot think of something I do not like.
