I tried to see Dr. Payton as a new patient today but after waiting 25 m past my appointed time I just gave up and left. No other psychiatrist or therapist has ever kept me waiting more than 10 m. I now see from the other reviews that this is pretty typical for this doctor. If I had known that I might have been more prepared for it, also I would not have unnecessarily arrived 30 m before the appointment (as instructed) which brought the total wait to an hour. Overall I get the impression that this entire practice lacks professionalism.

Dr. Payton has gone above and beyond to provide me with the most effective care possible for my mental illness. I have been a patient of his since 1999. I have recommended him to other people in Asheville because I know that they would certainly receive the best care possible from him.
