I have been working with Dr Shampaine and Lisa Luse. They are both fantastic. They have both helped me in many ways.

There is one area that has room for improvement. Consistently, everytime, I call the office the phone is not answered. Leaving a message is not an option for me. I work with clients and would miss the return call. I am grateful that I can communicate with Lisa via email about appointments. If I had to depend on just calling, it would be a dealbreaker for me.

Dr. Hookman is not only an expert psychiatrist, but she is an expert in women's issues. Why is a women's expert important when seeking a doctor for yourself, your friend, or your family member? Women face gender specific challenges throughout the course of their lives and are often expected to persevere through these experiences as if they are not sources of tension. For example, fertility, pregnancy, and post-partum issues can cause a tremendous amount of anxiety, stress, and feelings of aloneness for women. Obesity and body image can result in the same unhappy feelings, and the list of gender specific issues continues.

In addition to being able to provide the indicated diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Hookman is an amazing guide and resource for women during these trying times. She understands why women might not want to pursue a particular course of treatment or why changing behavior is difficult. She is able to adeptly explain a patient's perspective to those who the patient involves in her treatment. She serves as an advocate and cheerleader in helping her patients to achieve healthy and happy lives. Dr. Hookman and her team are simply the best.

Have been going to Dr. Hookman for about 5 years, and she has always been very thorough, and always listens to you, and takes her time answering all questions. I never felt like I was being rushed out so she could get to the next patient. she is a true professional, and over the years I have also been seen by some of her colleagues, and they too have all been very informative in listening, and explaining any maladies. Ladies at the front desk are always polite and professional.
