I've been searching for a good doctor for years now. Someone who is educated but also willing to understand where I was coming from and could speak to me on my level. I've had doctors who ask stupid questions and were just unrealistic in their approach to therapy with me. But then I came to this office. The doctors here, including Dr. Burgio are wonderful. They understood where I was coming from and took their time with getting to know me and my issues.

* this reviewer has be with this therapist for 1 - 3 years

Dr. Maria R. Burgio is NOT gay or trans friendly.  Conversely, she she said some highly offensive and outrageously erroneous things regarding sexuality, and would not allow me to self identify. She is absolutely dangerous, especially considering the LGBT suicide rate. Sshe told me, emphatically, that "bisexuality does not exist," (knowing I identity as bisexual...because I AM!), and stated that as long as I "live my life this way," I "will not be able to overcome my Borderline traits." I was furious (and she was doing essentially ALL of the talking too), and brought up Foucault, whom I did my dissertation on for graduate school and pretty much love, as well as the Kinsey scale, and she said that was "all 100% incorrect nonsense. You're either one or the other." Since I do not believe in the gender binary, I challenged her statements, causing her to refer to Intersex individuals and trans folks as "freaks of nature," and homosexuality as a "genetic flaw." Absolutely disgusting.
