The Matawan office is great! Love everyone that works there. My counselor Megan is awesome and so is my Dr. I’ve been going here a long time. Started with iop and now I’m in outpatient. These guys saved my life.

I have been coming to Stress Care for 6 years and I couldn’t be happier with the services I have received. Dr. Geller is an amazing psychiatrist and he always takes the time to talk to me and address my concerns. The office staff is very nice and helpful. I currently go to the Manalapan office and everyone is amazing there: Debbie, Christine, Mic and Marina just to name a few! The therapists are great and Rachel is wonderful to talk to. I would recommend Stress Care to anyone who needed the support! Thank you for helping me to achieve stability and a great state of mental health! ❤️

I have been coming here for almost 6 years and I see many negative reviews...I could not agree LESS...yes sometimes there’s a wait but if you were the person having a rough time and needed 10 more minutes with your provider would you want him/her to cut you off? “Sorry, times up, get out!” I find the staff friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Dr Geller is wonderful and has helped me tremendously...others therapists have helped my children as well...I could easily go someplace closer to home but I wouldn’t even consider it...thank you to all the doctors and staff at Stress Care NJ!

If you are serious about helping your mental state or substance abuse problems, this is the place for you. The staff is nice, knowledgeable, and respectful. Unfortunately not everyone there is ready for help, and the wonderful clinicians are stuck with what they get. The Dr is knowledgeable but sometimes seem unavailable or “under the gun” when it comes to 1on1 sessions.

This wasn't my first program I've tried going to one other place before but it didn't fit my needs like Stress Care did. They offer flexible schedules for their clients and you can see the staff really cares for their clients as they find every resource available for you and personalize your goals with you. Great place for treatment.

Best place ever. I would not be where I am today if it weren't for my therapist, Laurie, and all the doctors I've seen, which there's too many to name. I came from driving a beat up 2002 Honda Civic to now driving a brand new $60,000 2018 Honda Civic Type R. I'm also 9 credits away from earning my Engineering Science B.S. and I plan on going to Grad school for my Masters and then my Ph.D and I attribute all of my success to NJ stress care. The medication they prescribed me is a modern-day miracle. I have so much energy, and I'm ready to conquer the world. Do yourself a favor and go.

I use Stressed Care's practitioners as my primary mental health care provider and I really like them. The Matawan office is pleasant and clean, the receptionists are always helpful and courteous and I always feel comfortable with any practitioner I've seen. I'm glad I moved so close to them in Old Bridge because it's a breeze going in for my monthly visit :) Over all I'm very happy with their services and definitely recommended!

I’ve been going to this place for years now and I’ve seen nothing but improvements over time. I see all these terrible reviews, but I can count on one hand how many times I’ve had a negative experience there. The staff deal with troubled & demanding clients all day and it seems that everyone thinks their own issue is more important than everyone else’s. I’ve been dealing with the same core staff for 5 years and as long as I’m respectful and patient with them, they’ve done nothing but work with and accommodate my medical needs. Sometimes there’s only one or two doctors (it seems like a bit of a revolving door for prescribing clinicians) and the office staff can only control so much. I don’t know everyone’s name off hand but Joy ALWAYS helps me out if I need a sooner appointment or if I need to come in for an emergency. It’s a clinic, it’s not a private practice in someone’s home office. Allow yourself an extra 20 minutes in case there’s a little wait. The last 4 times I was there for medication I was in and out in under a half hour. Good job guys, great improvement ✌🏼

Ever since I've been going to stress care everyone has has been great. The receptionists are very helpful and polite. My therapist is great, I always look forward to coming to my sessions. I would definitely recommend stress care to anyone .

The people here r very nice ,(especially Joyce, she tends to every body!) but i must say they do seem over worked and long hrs for themselves too. Every one has different situations when they come there, different stories and events. The staff is very nice and they try to be as understanding as possible to each and every person. i have seen that myself. I am a patient there and have never really looked at reviews until now, when i was in desperate need of moving my son to a new doc because the adolescent sector was closed down at another facility. they have patience and follow rules. Give them a break, some of these gals r there from 9 am to 8pm at night!!! If i could give them a 10 i would. i have never been to a doctor where u dont wait more than 30 minutes sometimes. its the type of practice. Dont stress yourselves!!! we r here for help not aggravate our selves over waiting times. i rather sit there and wait than deal with drama from the outside world. lol

With all the bad reviews, i feel the need to review my positive experience. i recently had an urgent situation due to a serious personal problem going on in my life. i spoke with joyce in the matawan location on a monday morning. she was very sympathetic and understood the severity of what i was going through. she squeezed me in for an appointment and greeted me with a smile. For me, that morning, she was lifesaver. I truly appreciate everything she did and continue to have my appointments with no problems.

Megan is the real MVP here. Good listener, good advice and very compassionate. I don't get why this place has such bad reviews. Both receptionists I encountered were both helpful and polite. Thank you Meg

I just want to say how wonderful Joyce the front desk supervisor is at the Matawan location. She went ABOVE AND BEYOND to get my precription covered for me. She was back and fourth on the phone with the insurance company for hours because she knew that I needed my prescription and that I was very nervous as I thought I wouldn’t be able to get it. Everytime I call the Manalapan location, I am put on hold for at least 1 hour if not more by an automatic recording. That is NEVER the case with Joyce, she answers ALL of my questions SO quickly and I never have to wait. She is such a wonderful person and Stress Care is EXTREMELY lucky to have someone like her. She runs the center amazingly. Because of her, I will now recommend everyone to come here , and now all of my friends will be switching there doctors and coming to Stress Care matawan location because she makes the process so easy and STRESS FREE! Thank you so so much for everything!!!!

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. I've been a patient for about 2 years and it saved my life! I've read reviews about the wait time and the reception staff and honestly they do the best they can! The facility try's to accommodate their large quantity of patients the best they can and it's not the receptionists fault that some of the doctors fall behind! It's called patience people! You go to this place once a month...relax! I love stress care and would highly reccomend it and actually have reccomended it to family and many friends...

I have never had a bad experience here! The staff on the second floor for my doctors appointments are extremely friendly and helpful. Every time I have to reschedule an appointment they are extremely accommodating. The doctor I saw is extremely friendly also and didn't give me any trouble with my prescriptions!! Definitely will be recommending to my friends who need help with mental health

The doctors and staff at Stress Care have been lifesavers for me. I've never have a problem scheduling an appointment, as the staff will do their best to fit me in as soon as possible. The doctors have all been very kind and helpful, they never make me feel that they are too busy to listen. There have been times when I have had to wait longer than my exact appointment time, but I understand that this is the nature of this kind of service. I have recommended Stress Care to my friends when they have needed mental health services.

My daughter use to go to the Matawan location always a long wait , we decided to try their new place by freehold, we had an appointment this morning with the practioner and were in and out this was actually are second visit. I felt the need to write a review because of how different both office's are. apn was very informative.Front desk girls are friendly (you can actually approach them) I have a crazy work schedule, but the girl with the black long hair gets my daughter in last min without any trouble. This office is a definite YES. Will most definitly continue to do business with them.

Honestly thankful to find a place where i can be treated for my anxiety. Living with my parents and being on their insurance while going to college fulltime doesnt always put you in the best situation insurance coverage wise especially with Trumps Healthcare Reform situation....just glad i can get help of therapy and psych councils from Stress care. My only problem is this place will call 5-6 people ahead of you when you book an apointment already ,,

Came in for a Saturday appointment with the nurse practitioner, reviews through me off but this place was actually really pleasant. Jonor was really good. The girls at the front were very helpful, very polite and really helped me get in there early because of the situation I was in. Wait was not terrible at all. Everyone was really positive, I am definitely keeping weekend appointments. Really wish they had a weekend therapist! 5 stars

I am so thankful we found this place. The office has been nothing but courteous and they do call and confirm my daughters appointments. I also have wonderful communication with her Dr, he is a fantastic therapist and very communicative. I would highly recommend him.
