I found Dr. Fotouh after doing some research when I moved to the area. My first visit with her was more productive than the last 4 years with my previous doctor. She is very compassionate and genuinely concerned for my well being. During my first 3 months, she managed to diagnose and offer treatment suggestions on issues I didn't realize I had. I am beyond grateful for her help and insight. Also, super friendly staff!

Dr. Fotouh is all you could wish for in a psychiatrist! Over the course of a year, she has not once failed to provide me with the most sincere and professional care. She follows up on her patients and is promptly approachable during emergency situations. She offers CBT+Medication approaches tailored specifically to her patient's needs which is hardly found at other psychiatric clinics. She never seizes to surprise you with creative approaches and therapeutic tactics even at times when a way out seems impossible. I highly recommend her services to whoever is in need. Her assistant, Pam, is also wonderful and very helpful!

Dr Fotouh is the best. She is the kind of Doctor who takes the time to really listen to your concerns as a patient or a parent. She took the time to connect with my kids at a time when they were struggling the most. She is very kind and you can tell that she truly enjoys connecting with her patients. She is also an excellent doctor. I have been impressed with how she was able to work with us to find solutions to our complicated situation. She has been excellent with my kids and they love her. I highly recommend her.

After a difficult time finding a mental health professional for teens willing to take insurance- which was important for us- we finally found Dr. From the moment we first connected with her office we have felt at home. They care. They listen. They observe body language which allows them to see deeper. She’s patient and compassionate. Her care has changed my son’s life. I can’t say enough good things about her.

I’ve been going to Dr Fotouh for several months for depression and anxiety. She has been very caring, compassionate and knowledgeable every time I go. I’m getting better and feeling more and more like my old self.

It’s only been 5 weeks since my last appointment, after which I expressed that I didn’t want to be treated by Dr. Fatouh anymore. When I called, I was told she wouldn’t refill my mood stabilizers (which have been helping me function, as we agreed) without another appointment. The reason I would never go back to Dr. Fatouh is because she disregarded my symptoms and LIED to me about my treatment and diagnosis options. So I guess I will have to find a doctor who would actually like to help me.
