judgmental, rude, holier-than-thou. he misdiagnosed me and i ended up getting progressively worse under his “care”. he said some things to me that we’re utterly inappropriate and possibly even verbally abusive. wouldn’t recommend him to my worst enemy.

With over 15 years as a mental health patient under my belt I’ve probably encountered at least a dozen psychiatrists and if I include therapists/counselors, that number is easily doubled. Dr. Fetterolf is among the best. He is articulate and well-educated, I could have guessed as much from his website headshot, but I was personally surprised by how down to earth and kind he is. His practice is based on “Psychodynamic Psychiatry” and I had no idea what that meant before I started working with him, but now that I do, I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to the more “traditional” psychiatrist/patient dynamic that almost exclusively involved medication management. Every health care practice claims to be “patient-centered” but Dr. Fetterolf is one of those providers who actually is. He takes many aspects of my life, medical history, and personality into consideration and has never tried to utilize a one size fits all approach to my treatment.

After seeking treatment with various psychiatrists and therapists, I stumbled upon Dr. Fetterolf. Not only did he take the time to get to know me and my life experiences before diagnosing me, but he has always ensured I was fully involved and agreed with the plan of treatment. He's always made it a priority to stay on top of the latest research and is always willing to discuss it with me. He is very patient focused and has gone out of his way on multiple occasions to accommodate whatever various needs/requests I have.

First of all he seems to be insecure and judgmental. Not rude but judgmental and not empathetic. I have talked to a Ph.D professional after his diagnosis. This Dr. said that his diagnosis don’t make sense because they contradict each other.
