Dr. Brian Lahey, MD
Dr. Lahey knew he was going to become a psychiatrist at the age of eighteen when he began working with chronically mentally ill adults in the group home setting. This work continued throughout his college years while attending The College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he fulfilled his pre-medical requirements and graduated with an interdisciplinary major in biological psychology. Following college, he worked at University of Virginia Hospital on the psychiatric unit. After two years, Dr. Lahey enrolled in medical school at St. George's University. After medical school, he completed his residency training at the University of Kansas Medical Center, as well as his two year fellowship in child & adolescent psychiatry. Throughout his training, he established a patient base through his moonlighting work with an underserved population in Southern Iowa. And, upon finishing his fellowship, he served as their medical director (Community Health Centers of Southern Iowa) for two years before transitioning into private practice. During that transition, Dr. Lahey managed the psychiatric needs of children in residential state custody through Kaw Valley Center (KVC) for approximately one year. Lastly, Dr. Lahey holds additional certification for treating opiate dependence in the outpatient setting, enabling him to provide a growingly needed service. Dr. Lahey is one of the few psychiatrists who treats patients of all ages, which has grown his understanding of family systems and intergenerational dynamics. Because of this work, Dr. Lahey developed Binary Psychology in response to his insight into the two-part consciousness of the thinking mind. His understanding of how children perceive and form beliefs provided essential insight into the nature of the parent-child relationship. And his elaboration of how changes of consciousness occur and symptoms preceding such changes gives his model a growth oriented, curative potential for patients.

I saw him Dr. Lahey in need of help and after an hour and a half appointment (mostly with him rambling about his own philosophies) he wouldn't prescribe me anything. He is disconnected from reality and takes a bizzare, conservative approach to disorders, thinking that they are 100% caused by the environment and 100% curable. Which is problematic because he thinks his psychotherapy is the solution. He's wrong. That's why we have science and medicine.
My appointment with Dr. Lahey was a nightmare. I left his office more broken than fixed. For an hour and a half we discussed how my anxiety affected my child and then in the last the minutes he prescribed me a 700$ medication. He was condescending (I'm nearly 30 and he used to toys to dictate a scenario to me). He never followed up. I have sought other care and the experience is like night and day. Stay away. Stay far away.

Cannot get in touch with him or his office! They only allow text messages or emails...first time I have an emergency for my child and I cannot get a response---2 days now. Had to call the nurse to a different doc in his office to beg for help---then all I got was an I will look into it! Still no help in adjusting my sons meds!
Hello, Dr. Lahey's staff is available by phone, email, and text. We would be more than happy to help and apologize if you were having trouble.
It was awful. This man literally should not be allowed to see mental health patients. It is dangerous and irresponsible to do so.

Dr. Lahey is a great and kind Dr. and he honestly cares about his patients and their needs. Dr. Marissa Lahey is also a very kind Dr. and will help with anything you are needing and she is a great listener. I have loved coming to the Overland Park office and have for a year. I have had no issues with anything with their office and would refer all of my friends and family to them. Even the office has a relaxing environment and a wonderful calming scent everytime I go in.
