Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McNeil "Before medical school I worked in health care administration. I chose medicine to help others directly. I chose psychiatry because I saw that emotional pain and mental dysfunction can be more difficult to overcome than many physical ailments. I work collaboratively with patients toward improved wellness. Often patient input can determine the best choice among treatment options. But if limits are imposed by dysfunction or urgency, I will choose the course to pursue and explain my decisions."

Have spent way too much time sitting in his waiting room, way past my appointment time. Have waited as long as an hour past. Not sure if he has ADD as well but often seems like he's not listening. Never again
