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.
