We expect doctors to be the way we expect them to be - just doctors: in general, who only hear our side. We don't want them to show their human side unless they sympathize with our problem. SO I do understand where some people coming from when they don't believe in treatment or don't want to pay so much, especially when they see such a dramatic approach in medical treatments like Drug-Free Biofeedback, TFT etc. It’s also true that Dr. Mark Steinberg is a character with a great sense of humor and different then come/check/prescription/go approach. And that is exactly what turn some people off. They can't see beyond what they used to, different kind of doctor....a psychologist....and that's their loss. I want to tell you that Dr. Steinberg's approach is more about your child to be comfortable, not much about you (if you are not a patient yourself) ...he is one of the best Child Psychologists out there. You should concentrate on treatments for you and your child, make sure that results from the place you go or to sick help from speak for themselves. Doesn't matter if your doc is different - what matters here is: Does the treatment help you or your child? Did you update your doctor on progress or not every week? The Biofeedback is one of the best options for people to get better if they have problems with medications, would it be allergic reaction, various side effects, fear of medicine, luck of medicine that helps etc.
From some of dissatisfied customers we only hear pay lots of money, bs, bad humor... some rather inappropriate notes. I just want to tell you as a Pediatrician: if you disrespect a doctor like Mark Steinberg you disrespect yourself. Your money is well worth to be spending on his treatment and your child is in very good hands. And believe me for a Psychologist of his rank he is well worth what you pay him - you are in bargain here. You also may learn a lot from Dr. Steinberg, I know I do every time we communicate on referrals or treatment discussions.
Pros: Knowlege is the key and Doctor knows what he is doing!!!
Cons: Best results and doc is different, I admit...but THE best
