Patient Reviews
Jul 08, 2022
Dr. P. has been the best provider I've had in my twenty-eight years of psychiatric needs. I'm 48 years old so that says a lot! She really wants to help me and goes above and beyond to understand my specific type of issues that makes my treatment extremely difficult. She researches how my other issues affect not only my mental health but my total health too. I have brain damage from a lot of concussions as well as a family history of early onset Alzheimer's as well as parkinsonism. She works seamlessly with my other providers. I cannot imagine what I will do if I'm unable to see her in the future. She's, truly, one in a lifetime psychiatrist. She is what other psychiatrist should aspire to be.
