Doctor Dysart's expansive experience in multi-disciplined specialities gives him the knowledge and the authority to accurately prescribe medications to suit the patient's needs. He is conservative in his approach to the use of medications, and in my particular case, has always reduced dosage appropriate to my rate of recovery. I do not doubt for a moment that Dr. Dysart saved my life and for that I shall be eternally grateful. His own experiences give him empathetic insight.
Dr. Dysart is the absolute best! He is the only doctor to make a difference in my life after 12 years and numerous doctors. His accurate diagnosis and proper treatment has truly changed my life. It made a huge difference to have issues explained from a neurological standpoint as well as psychiatric. Dr. Dysart gave me my life back. I never thought it would be possible to be this happy and healthy again and I owe him everything for that.

The best Psychiatrist in Missouri. I have trusted him with my life. I vouch for all he has done

Well, I have only seen this doctor once so far. But that was a fruitful visit: whatever issues with ADD I could not combat for years,after starting on his medication/supplement regimen I feel like I have been rejuvenated and calm, yet energetic. It's amazing! I was desperate when I came to him, prior doctor's meds made me feel on edge, not composed, attentive and alert. He clearly knows his stuff, and I have been to a few top notch drs before and CAN compare the quality of services. Kudos!

very quick to over prescribe! for any issue he prescribes strong medicine for years. This may help junkies, they may WANT to come to him but for people who care about their mental health this is a bad mistake!
