Excellent. I've been going to Dr. Hicks for many years has always been there for me. He's not condescending, and is very caring.

Dr. Hicks is serious about getting his patients well. He really knows his medications and takes a friendly but professional approach when dealing with mental health issues.
in Phoenix, AZ |
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.
