About me

Philosophy of care

"I have developed a keen awareness of how stress can sometimes lead to significant mental and emotional suffering. When such suffering will not go away and causes an inability to function on a day-to-day basis, this insight enables me to help my patients relieve the burdens of mental illness and to restore the natural abilities that each person brings to his/her life. My subspecialty certification in psychosomatic medicine allows me to help those who are burdened by both a mental illness and other medical conditions.”

To request a follow up first the receptionist was very rude and didn't show professionalism, lack of understanding the patient needs.

Dr. was upset that I was 20 minutes late. His receptionist had not told him I was late because there was no one to push me in a hospital wheelchair for 30 minutes after I arrived so dr. shortened my appointment.

He gave me an earlier appointment to change the amount of one of my medications. It has worked out fine.

Dr. Raster is very kind & helpful. I like the fact that he is very conservative when considering medications I need. I.e. he's not a pill pusher.
