What People Say About Dr. Dominic Maxwell, MD

I have heard negative things about Dr. Maxwell's work with teenagers, but I have been his patient for 4+ years and have only had positive experiences. I would recommend him to anyone- he is great! Very intelligent, he knows what he's doing. My advice to get the most out of your work with him: be honest about everything, advocate for yourself. It took him2 attempts to get my meds right and I have been stable for 2+ years. One thing though- I wish he would explain his diagnoses more in depth.

Dr. Maxwell is a caring talented Dr. With a great understanding of teenagers. The very first time he saw my son he knew the medication he was prescribed was not right. Within 2 weeks my sons Tourette's all but stopped. After 3 more visits and some adjustments on his new medication he no longer shows any signs of Tourette's syndrome. His anxiety is gone and he is a confident happy teenager. Thank you Dr. Maxwell.

No matter how anxious I am, no matter how overwhelmed I feel, when I walk into Dr. Maxwell's office and see his smile, I know everything is fine. I don't know exactly how he does it, but when he listens to what's going on with me he not only understands but is able to describe the feelings and fears that I cant. The man is my hero. He has helped me through some rough times that I never thought I would get through. Because of Dr. Maxwell I am a better mother, a better wife and have a great life.
