From Charles and Tara M. in July of 2010:
“I highly recommend and rave about this doctor! He goes far beyond simply serving as a good physician. He is caring, but he is also very educated and knowledgeable. His insight is particularly remarkable for such a young doctor. After 31 years of having many doctors, none have proven this dedicated to their patients.
“Dr. Ventre is dedicated to knowing his patient, diagnosing them, and prescribing the right medicines. He does not just go by the books with his treatment. He cares about what’s best for the patient and takes time to understand the family.
“In our situation, he made a brilliant breakthrough for both the patient and the caregivers. This improved the quality of life for both. Many doctors wouldn’t have looked that deep to make the correct diagnosis. He’s the best!”
From an anonymous client in December of 2010:
“Dr. Ventre proved absolutely wonderful with my daughter. She was having a lot of issues, but his approach was very caring and direct. At the same time, he didn’t pull any punches either. Instead he made sure that he was getting to the real root of the issue. I cannot express deeply enough how happy we are with his care.”
From Cheryl I. in February of 2011:
“I want to thank Dr. Ventre for his dedication and commitment toward getting my brother well. He has gone above and beyond all expectations over the past two years. His compassion, professionalism, and genuine concern for my brother’s welfare are greatly appreciated.
“I thank God that my brother is under Dr. Ventre’s care. There’s no doubt in my mind my brother will get well with him by his side. Dr. Ventre is awesome. I thank him from the bottom of my heart for doing whatever it takes.”
From Barbara R. in June of 2011:
“I don’t know where to begin to thank Dr. Ventre for giving me back my life. He is the best psychiatrist in the whole world.
“During our first visit, I had recently quit taking lithium after using it for 30 years. It had become toxic to me, and after quitting I was rambling on at 100 mph. I told him all of my problems from the last 30 years. These included my inability to sleep properly, my anxiety, and my depression.
“Dr. Ventre told me he was going to get me thinking one thought at a time. He also told me he’d help me live a normal life again. His knowledge and kindness far exceeded his position as my physician. He has since helped me find the ability to live life to its fullest again. He lifted my depression and got rid of my feelings of hopelessness.
“Thanks to Dr. Ventre, I am now living a joyful life. I have a normal sleep pattern and am no longer plagued by anxiety or depression. Every day, I thank God for Dr. Ventre. He is my miracle!”
As all of this praise shows, VMA is highly regarded amongst their patients and clients. Their individual care and attention lets each patient know that their problems really matter. This has made Ventre Medical Associates one of the top psychiatric practices in their area.
