Responsive and kind
He is wonderful
I have recommended this app to so many friends and family members. It’s been a huge help and great addition to my life!
Dr Schweizer has been very helpful for me in working through a variety of issues.
Dr.Schweitzer has made me feel so comfortable. Even when I step away for a while he reaches out to make sure I’m okay and reassures me that he’s there for me. I finally feel like it’s working.
Dr Schweitzer is great and a competent clinician I would recommend him to a stranger or friend he responds to me and is very understanding
He is compassionate, pragmatic and very knowledgeable. I am very happy to be able to work with him.
I am new to seeking therapy but I have to say that this councillor has been great supporting me and helping me figure out my mind. He takes a lot of time and listens to your concerns and also has great ideas on where is you can feel better or work towards your goals. I would highly recommend him.
He’s amazing to speak to. Upfront and caring!
A really professional and qualified doctor really helpful. I looking forward to my session with doctor Schweitzer every time.
