Find any psychodynamically oriented psychologist, psychiatrist or social worker and ask them if they know of Lew Aron. Everyone will immediately say yes.
Lew is not only well renowned, he is heavily published and edits a journal and is on the editorial staff of others. He teaches professionals and is head of a program. And he is in private practice.
As a patient you would never know that Dr. Aron is as renowned as he is. He is a quiet man whose ability to hear all that is said is exceptional. And with the hearing comes the healing.
If you are considering long term psychotherapy and Dr. Aron is available, choosing him to be your therapist/analyst is a wise choice.
Dr. Braff has been practicing for decades. She completed a post-doctoral diploma in psychoanalysis (4 year university based) and her work is reflective of that.
She works especially well with men and couples but does wonderful work with women and adolescents as well.
Dr. Braff is a good choice if you are looking to get to the root of a problem rather than just put a band-aid on the surface. If you are not willing to work, don't waste your time or hers.
Dr. Blanck is a splendid physician. He knows his stuff up one side and down the other. From the books in his office it seems that he is a specialist in Multiple Sclerosis. Never the less we were sent there for something else and could not have been more pleased.
Dr. Blanck conducts is exams with the utmost skill and caring and we are sure absolutely knows what he is doing. We could not be happier and he will continue to be our neurologist until either he retires or we are no more.
As locals (well a few towns away) we thought Christmas Eve dinner at the Garden City Hotel would be wonderful. We entered a world of beauty with tasteful holiday decorations everywhere. We entered a restaurant that was lovely itself. The menu seemed to offer a wonderful choice. Both my friend and I were disappointed in most everything we ordered. But most of all we were disappointed with the experience. We had expected the Garden City Hotel to be spectacular in every way. We had had a few meals there previously at weddings, etc. And once a lunch. And they were fine. So we expected this to be spectacular. What a letdown.
We all love Niko's. It is super authentic with great food and atmosphere. The octopus is some of the best I have ever had as is the tzatziki.
This is a family restaurant owned and run by a family. This is a place to make sure you stop at if you are in the area. Even if you are not that close, it is worth the detour.
Enzo's is a Mamaroneck staple. It has been around for longer than I can remember. Their food is very good and the portions are large. Their bruschetta is great. Do not miss either that or the french fried zucchini. Yum.
This tiny little French restaurant is a gem. The food rivals any restaurant anywhere. Their special muscles provencal is sweet and garlicky with an unexpected smoothness . Their pommes frites (french fries - actually shoestrings) do the potato proud. They are magnificent. The wild mushroom soup is creamy and glides down with a smooth muchroomy flavor. This place is amazing. If you are anywhere near, call for a reservation and come. You will not be disappointed.
If you are local, when you enter Gus's someone you know will wave. That is because this place is so great that everyone who knows about it comes as often as they can. The atmosphere is super casual and the food is world class. IMHO the cole slaw here is the best anywhere.
Fenway Golf Club is a members only retreat offering golf, tennis and everything else a member could desire. In the dining room the food excels. Their private parties are lavish and their holidays are amazing. If you are fortunate enough to be able to afford to join, and are accepted, you will not be disappointed.
In this day and ago of huge national chains it is nice to find an old fashioned pharmacy. They have sundries as well as a small area where a super yummy breakfast, etc. is served and where you will find many locals many mornings.
