I’m really glad I found Dr. Fenton. He’s well worth my time, money and effort to drive over an hour to see him. His assistant is very good too. He takes his time with me and rarely have I had to wait longer than 20 min to see him.

I’ve been seeing Dr Fenton for 11 years. He has helped me manage my bipolar disorder that otherwise would have cost me my job. Yes, he may run late, but that is most often because he does actually talk to his patients. He’s not just write a script and get out of my office. He has actively sought for psychiatric medication for a patient who would have needed to be admitted to a psych hospital if the medication had not been found. I work in a pharmacy and helped him in his search.

I've been his patient for 5+ years. Spends quality time with me. Remembers what's going on in my life every appointment. Thoroughly reviews history, medication, side effects and cares about my well being. He was recommended to me by a professor and I would recommend him to anyone wanting help. He gets to the root of the problem. Accurate and trustworthy and worth the wait. If you are required to wait before he can see you it's because he is doing his job the way it should be done. be patient.

I recommend Dr. Fenton to my recovery partners or anyone struggling w/mental illness. He is also AMAZING with children, he is a GIFTED doctor!! I look my 18 year old son to see him for possible depression; my son was NOT happy about going. Dr. Fenton was incredible, my son loved him & never complained again & my son actually gave Dr. Fenton a compliment! The scam of him making sexual advances is hideous, he talks openly about it. I am going on 5 years of seeing him, I credit him w/saving my life

This practice is a joke. So money hungry and doesn't care about patients needs at all. Wish I could give zero stars. They didn't mark that I gave 24 hours for a missed appt and are now charging me a $50 no show fee. I CALLED well in advance. I had walking pneumonia!! I told them I couldn't afford the copay so they've cut off my meds that I so desperately need. Just carelessly said oh well come back when you can pay. I also NEVER met the doctor. Only assistants.

Fenton is very bright, and his associates are excellent. I had a previous psychiatrist that, once out of his 4-week "pain clinic", had no interest in me--it is simple, there wasn't enough money in a patient like myself after they had milked me for several thousand dollars. Fenton has been different from the start.

Horribly unprofessional. Can't seem to show up to the office on time and leave patients waiting for 30+min when he's not even there yet. The office people say they can't ever seem to get him there on time. Unacceptable.
