Testimonials

Chris S. - Waltham, MA
From the first session with Dr. Tissera I knew he was the doctor for me. He was caring, understanding and willing to listen to my medical concerns. It was then I saw he was not just about prescribing medication like some psychiatrists but was genuinely concerned about my wellbeing. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a psychiatrist!
Glen M. - Reading, MA
Dr. Tissera changed my life! With his prompt diagnosis my ADHD has been finally addressed, allowing me to escape from the darkness ADHD threw me and live a normal life. I am 43 years old and I have been able to be successful in my profession. (I am an engineer), at the price of struggling with my health and my private life. Now I know that my ADHD was responsible for my struggle. I have never been aware I had ADHD, and not because I did not show strong symptoms of the disorder. I believe this was due to a mixture of lack of education and misinformation on the subject, both from my side and from people interacted with me. Thanks to my wife who one day, tried to deal with my miserable conditions, booked an appointment with Dr.Tissera, my ADHD condition has been quickly recognized, I have been educated on the subject and received the proper treatment. I have been very impressed by Dr. Tissera, both from a professional and personal point of view. If you ask me: who would you recommend as psychiatrist? No doubt, Dr. Tissera!

I am impressed with the extensive knowledge of Dr. Tissera's practice and skill at treating my anxiety and depression. MWBHC was able to improve my quality of life in a very short amount of time. MWBHC fully listens to any concerns and responds immediately, always with great knowledge, patience and kindness. Dr. Tissera is the most amazing psychiatrist I have worked with (in a sea of many). His calm and relaxed manner creates ease upon entering his office. His extensive understanding of medications (there uses and side effects) and his ability to think outside the box with treatment and his dedication to helping his patients. I am pleased to say that every staff member working with Dr. Tissera has been efficient, professional, helpful and extremely friendly.
