Dr. Turecki is the best of the best. Faced with a myriad of seemingly insurmountable problems, I have been fortunate to have had the help of this caring, intelligent, and very experienced psychiatrist. From the challenges of raising a special needs child, to surviving the stress of divorce, and the anxiety & depression that ensued, Dr. Turecki has provided comfort & support. Any decision about the need, effectiveness or continuation of any medication is always a joint one and he is not only open to, but recommends alternative treatments that he considers medically effective. He is always available to help when there is a crisis, and from my experience, to provide exceptional care during regular visits. — C.B., adult patient


I began seeing Dr. Turecki on the recommendation of my pediatrician, because my son, who was six years old at the time, had heightened anxiety about new situations and about separating from me and my husband. My son was also prone to violent tantrums that left us feeling exhausted, bewildered, frightened and angry. Working with Dr. Turecki, I learned to change my approach toward my son and to break the cycle, anticipating the triggers of his tantrumming and avoiding those painful episodes. My son met with Dr. Turecki several times, but most of the therapy and coaching was for me as the mother. With Dr. Turecki's help, I came to terms with my own anxiety and personal history, and I made some important connections and observations about my life, relationships and behavior patterns. It was a deeply emotional process to engage in, but wholly worthwhile and valuable.

I am a happier person and a better parent as a result of my work with Dr. Turecki. I recommend him without reservation to any parent struggling with a difficult child. In addition to my one-on-one counseling sessions with Dr. Turecki, I also participated in a regular group therapy session with several other mothers experiencing similar issues with their children. I found these sessions to be beneficial as we worked together to address challenging situations and scenarios by role-playing and offering insight and support to one another.

Fast forward about three years, and I am proud to say that my son is a wonderful, confident, social, capable and generally well-behaved child. He still has his moments-- we all do-- but I have come to understand, love and appreciate who he is.

Thank you, Dr. Turecki!

"Being an adult, I was somewhat hesitant to visit Dr. Turecki as he is such a well-known child psychiatrist, but I have been very happy with him and recommend him for anyone looking for an adult psychiatrist." — A.M., adult patient


"Dr. Stanely Turecki is an amazing doctor. His ability to connect with children and make them feel relaxed and safe is unmatched. At our very first visit my 5 year felt comfortable to open up and speak his feelings. At that initial visit, Dr. Turecki was able to develop a concrete plan to help my son with his sleep issues, which have since resolved. As a mother of 3, I feel especially grateful to have worked with Dr. Turecki. He truly helped my 5 year old and therefore improved the lives of our entire family.". — K.G., parent

I highly recommend Dr. Turecki." — L.R., young adult patient


"I have been seeing Dr. Turecki regularly for 2+ years as both psychiatrist and psychotherapist. He is an excellent therapist, capable of seeing and addressing both the large scale, relation and emotional issues and the practical and medical aspects of mental illness. In addition he is both kind and stern, understanding and demanding of honesty. He has been significant in helping me through my depression." — A.M., adult patient


"Dr. Turecki is brilliant and extremely effective at diagnosing and remediating psychiatris issues. He has helped our entire family, and without his intervention we would have suffered individually and collectively for "who knows how long." I have recommended him to friends who have had similarly positive experiences. He is excellent, responsive, professional, thoughtful and caring." — H.Y., patient and parent
