He takes mental health as a business. He doesn't care for his patients nor he is interested in helping them. He is making business practices all over NC and just so money minded. He appears to be narcissistic and self-obsessed.

I have been seen by Dr. Aiken and my son as well. He knows what he is doing. Under his care, both of us have seen significant improvement in symptoms.

Difficult person to relate to due to his lack of eye contact and failure to acknowledge that you might know something about your condition that he doesn't.

I have been his patient for seven years. He is fantastic but his office never calls back if you are in a crisis or your meds need to be refilled. On a number of occasions I have had to go to his office and stand in front of someone for them to respond. Over the years I have left 3 messages on his emergency line in which NO ONE ever called back. Your psychiatrist should be ONE person you can count on when you are not mentally healthy. It is already scary and it adds to the anxiety.
