What People Say About Dr. Christopher Stanley, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I've seen Dr. Stanley twice. Both times he was very kind, very knowledgeable, and very patient. And extremely, extremely late. Just to be clear, I just left the office after waiting 45 minutes past the appointment time and then asking what was going on, finding out that there were two more patients in front of the woman that had just gone in. I would have likely waited an hour and a half past my scheduled time to even get into triage. His staff knows that he is absolutely horrible about keeping his appointments to a schedule and offers very little empathy or understanding about what amounts to a complete disrespect for his patients' time. Today I was told that he has "very bad patients" and that's why he can't run on time. To me this speaks to a lack of professional boundaries not a strike against the patients themselves. He seems like a very competent doctor but unless you want to spend three hours at your psychiatrist appointment, look elsewhere.

I have seen many Psychiatrists, and Dr Stanley is, by far, the most professional, compassionate and patient doctor I have seen. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Stanley is kind and listens to the patient and is very willing to change course if any side effects become too much. Unlike other Dr's that tell patients give it some more time.
