The best Psychiatrist in the Phoenix area. I'm so glad I found Dr. Hicks. He is very understanding, finds the right medication for you, refers you to the right Psychologist for your illness and takes meticulous notes which is important for any future written statements/ paperwork you might need from him. Staff is friendly and organized! Office is always clean. Give Dr. Hicks a try...you'll be glad you did. Zero to little wait time.

I've seen Dr. Hicks for many years, off and on. Dr. Hicks and Tanya always take great care of me. They listen and always follow-up when needed. I have other medical issues and Dr. Hicks pays close attention to my overall health situation and how that might relat to his treatment plan for me.. On top of great medical care, they are kind, friendly, and genuinely care about patients.

He spends the whole time with you paraphrasing what you say into a microphone around his neck that in turn sends it to his computer software and enters it into your record. You don't feel like he's really listening to you just too worried about getting the info intro the computer. You are trying to tell him how things are going and he will cut you off in mid sentence because the software made a typo and he needs to repeat what you've said so the computer will correct it.
