Central Coast Psychiatric Consultants is led by Dr. Joseph A. Schwartz and Dr. Elisa Feingold. They have been practicing in the Central Coast since 1993 and are both on the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. They service people from Santa Barbara all the way up to San Luis Obispo. They have a passion for treating their patients with the most advanced technology to treat depression and anxiety by using multiple forms of psychiatric services that include: clinical assessment, medication management, and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). They are highly trained and proficient with the use of the Neurostar TMS machine and have a strong team of four TMS technicians that work under close supervision of the doctors.
Out of the multiple rating sites out there, Dr. Schwartz has an average of a 4 out of 5 star grade. The patients left mostly encouraging remarks of how good of a doctor he was and helped them greatly. Dr. Feingold on the other hand, did not receive as good of grades on various sites. She averaged a 2.5 out of 5 star rating on: vitals.com, yelp.com, healthgrades.com. The most popular complaint was that she seemed like she didn’t care about the patient and would write notes instead of actually listening to them.
A recent patient recently said, “Dr. Elisa Feingold is the best! She is very smart, nice, professional, and she listens to what you have to say. She is very easy to talk to and she explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. Her office staff is always friendly and helpful, and the wait is never long. I trust this doctor.”
