He wasn't sympathetic after I told him that I'm going through a traumatic event. I understand he's only a psychiatrist but there needs to be some emotion or sympathy! I blurted out so many things that I need work on and he didn't really acknowledge. Kinda sad, to be honest. Especially when it's about men's mental health.

I have received excellent care from Dr Dago for 20+ years and would not change Psychiatrists because of this. He is available most times when needed quickly and wait times at the office for appointments are very brief if any. He explains the medicine and treatment and is also willing to adjust if some meds do not work out me. Dr Dago always has options for my treatment so that I can be stable and healthy!

I feel like my doctor is busy and overcommitted. He always gets interrupted during our appointments and although I requested video, I just got a phone call. Very short - only about 20 minutes.
