Paul Natvig does not have an adequate amount of comments to generate the sentiment analysis.
Going to meet with Dr. Natvig regularly was one of the only things I looked forward to at the time I was seeing him. He was always truthful and direct with me, and wasnt afraid to argue when he thought I was being stubborn and selfdestructive. He had a great sense of humor and I found him to be informative and enlightening. It was nice to meet with someone who actually had something to tell me when I needed help instead of just listening and agreeing with everything I said and walking on eggshells around me. It helped me a lot. He was a great fit for me.
Dr. Natvig is narcissistic and likes to hear himself talk. Even though Ive had my diagnosis for 10 years, he kept insisting on sharing basic details about how it works to me. I felt condemned rather than supported. In our last session he tried to do me the service of sharing why people dont like me.
Most disheartening provider I have encountered. Not interested in hearing your symptoms, likes to hear himself talk, thinks he knows whats going on in your head better than you do.. Told me I should consider comm. college because he didnt think I could handle U of Iowa (remained at uiowa as a 4.0 student). Genuinely makes me sad that he chose to practice in a field that requires compassion and understanding, neither of which he possesses. Only impact he had on my depression was exacerbating it
This doctor should not even get 1 star. I saw him through the University of Iowa and he didnt listen to a word I said. He was more interested in doing the talking and making bad jokes and refused to help me find a better antidepressant after I repeatedly told him the one I was on wasnt helping me. Now I find out a friend of mine who has been seeing him for about a year was advised by him to go off her antidepressants (COLD TURKEY) and was recently in the hospital for suicidal thoughts.
Dr. Natvig cares about my medical sideeffects. After he knew I wasnt doing well on my privious one he immediately contacted me and gave me a new priscprition right away on that day. I appreciate his attention.
