After the birth of my first baby I suffered from terrible postpartum anxiety and depression. I cycled through several other psychiatrists who seemed to know nothing about PPD and were not at all helpful. Luckily a friend referred Dr. Wendy Hookman who saved me from the depths of my severe anxiety. Dr. Hookman was so confident and knowledgeable that she immediately put me at ease and comforted me. I felt so relieved that I was in good hands and that she knew exactly what to do. Over the next several weeks she guided me through therapy and medication, which not only resolved my anxiety, but helped me with other normal issues that come with new motherhood. Twenty two years later, Dr. Hookman is still an important person in my life. She is the calm voice of reason and constant support that has helped me through other challenging times. I highly recommend her, she is brilliant.

Dr. Hookman is the most competent, caring, and professional doctor I have ever known. I was in crisis on my first visit. She listened to me and asked questions to understand my situation and symptoms. She made a plan and discussed it with me, answering all my questions and fears. At the end of the session I left much calmer and confident things would get better. She was available to me between appointments to answer questions. That was such a comfort to me. I highly recommend Dr. Hookman.

Dr. Hookman literally changed my life. I started seeing her during a very difficult, scary time. I was suffering from depression and anxiety and had no idea why. She determined that much of it was hormonal and related to menopause and thyroid problems. I have worked with Dr. Hookman for many years now. She has carefully tracked my progress, suggested changes in medications over time, and assessed how well everything is working. She has turned my life around. She is an amazing doctor who has always been there for me. I have nothing but the highest regard for her.

Dr. Hookman was so fantastic. In our first session, she immediately helped my PPD/PPA. I was already seeing a psychiatrist and a therapist, but with Dr. Hookman’s experience she was able to quickly suggest the right combination of medications for me. She was incredibly reassuring and understanding and felt like a port in a storm!

Dr. Hookman has been a pleasure to work with. She is warm, welcoming, nonjudgemental, and, most importantly, really helping me improve not only with my mental health but as a person.

I am a relatively new patient of Dr. Hookman’s and I can’t sing her praises enough. She is very attentive and eager to problem-solve while having a terrific bed-side manner. I look forward to my appointments with her! It is nice to have full confidence that my medical provider is extremally competent and always available. Thank you!!!

After two visits to the ER and many phone calls to other doctors, Dr. Hookman graciously agreed to see me the very next day. She took as much time as I needed and truly made me feel comfortable and hopeful. I have continued with Dr. Hookman for several years and her treatment has changed my life. The practice is well run, appointments set up promptly and prescriptions filled quickly. I would recommend Dr. Hookman and her practice to anyone.
