Been a patient for many years and love him and Anna. They are always so kind and helpful.
in Harrisonburg, VA |
I have never dealt with a more judgmental, uninformed medical professional in my life. I came with a medical diagnosis of a condition and he completely ignored it and decided to treat me for something else. Please, if you have bipolar disorder do not come to this man. He doesn't believe in it and told that to me day one. He prescribed things against my diagnosis and landed me in the hospital. I was treated at another location with bipolar meds and I'm fine now. Because it's real. STAY AWAY.

They have been and continue to be very receptive and supportive of needs and care. It has truly helped me and changed my life, thank you.
in Waynesboro, VA |
I've always had a great experience at this office. The staff and Dr are very good at what they do. They are straight forward and to the point. I like that about them, no nonsense. I trust Dr. Darin completely, he works hard to understand your needs.
in Fisherville |
He can be abrupt in mannerism, which at first is scary. After you get to work with him, you will find he is caring and listens to your concerns. He is a very good psychiatrist.
His bedside manner leaves alot to be desired, he is rude and front desk is too. He does not listen and is very short with his time and his effort. His answer at every appointment has been to increase dosage of an SSRI when depression IS NOT the predominant concern. He does not like to be questioned or challenged about his choice of drug therapy. Entire office is just a shady front for a psychological care office and I have zero confidence in the care that has been provided here. Vigilance!
