A sampling of testimonials and reviews from a few of my former patients:
From a third party site: (ZocDoc)
“In 2009, my wife found Dr Haas and forced me to see him. It was one of the best things that ever happened to me. He was the second Dr my wife forced me to see, and I can honestly say that without him, I would not have found the solution to the most difficult period of my life. I considered every way out I could think of, and Dr Haas’ genuine empathy and honest feedback was the first and, at the time, the only saving grace I had. He is honest, caring and kind hearted, in addition to being a highly skilled practioner.”
“He was very thorough, and put me at ease right away! I particularly liked that he followed up with me even though it was a one time visit. He really cared about his patients.”
“Great & Helpful Doctor. Highly Recommended!!!”
From emailed correspondence:
I wanted to write you and thank you for your help in 2013.
It has been a very interesting and challenging year and a lot of people helped me to get through it. You are one of them and in this beginning of 2014 I wanted to say thanks one more time.
I’ve been doing pretty well, sleeping well dealing with things pretty positively.
I still think of you often and always hope that you are doing well. I miss your kind and gentle spirit! I am doing well and valiantly keep up my battle against my former demons!
Hi there Dr. Haas-
I’m not sure if you will remember me as I’m sure you have many
patients and it’s been over a year since I was talking to you about my
dreams- my name is _ _. I just wanted to shoot you an email
to let you know how useful the psychoanalysis was for me at the time I
was speaking with you. I don’t know if you recall, but images came up
in the dreams about nursing and healing and you encouraged me to move
forward with taking some prerequisite classes that I needed for a
nursing program. I wanted to write you to let you know that I’m
finishing up my prerequisite classes this summer and plan on applying
to nursing school in the fall. I’m really excited about taking this
new direction! The classes are fascinating and my only regret is that
I didn’t start down this path sooner!!
Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for your insight and help with the
dream images as they were trying to tell me something, but I didn’t
understand how to listen!!
Hope all is well….
Thank you for being part of my journey and being my first Jungian analyst! I look forward to this journey and am grateful for our sessions. It was a great start to analysis. I also want to say thank you for your willingness to help work with me from [another city]. It helped to ease the initial shock of returning suddenly.
I hope all has been well with you. I am doing well and am enjoying life more,
I think of you often and miss you very much. I feel as though I have lost a good friend and am trying to some to peace with that. You are such a wonderful person and doctor and I will always appreciate everything you have done for me.
I most certainly appreciate the work that we have done so far over these last few months. You created a safe space to discuss and work through some important concerns. I am at a new crossroad now and i feel that that gains that I have made in our work will be a resource for this new direction.
Thank you very much Dr. Haas.
Hello Dr Haas,
I am checking in to let you know that everything is going well on all fronts.
Dear Dr. Haas,
I have just received your notice of termination and wanted to thank you for your commentary. Yes, i have certainly discovered both the burden and the blessing of my sensitive heart. I want to thank you again for being such a gentle, wise soul for me at that very desperate and tender juncture i faced last year. My encounter with you was very necessary for the healing that has occurred since. I have been embracing my burdened heart as much as one can. And since i generally prefer the scratchy tune of an old record player to the polished, sterile sounds of a remastered CD, i am happy not to experiment with my delicate constitution and take it straight up, even as flawed as it is. I am pretty sure that last year will not be my last bout of depression, i still house it from time to time, though my experiences are less frequent and less intense for the most part. I will keep diving for pearls when the tides turn, and trust in the perfection of my design.
Thank you for being you and for being there for me.
With love and deep appreciation,
