Dr. James Van Doren is the best psychiatrist I’ve seen to date. If you’re looking expertise and someone who works with you and is detailed in explanations he’s the one to see. He’s private practice so you bill your insurance and your pay upfront. He’s not cheap but worth it 10x. Highest recommendation!!!!!!

I give him zero Stars. I've had the unfortunate event to have him as a doctor. I met him at Regions Hospital I've had him twice and both times he's left me in tears. He's very patronizing and condescending. I felt like he enjoyed hurting people like it made him feel better. It's not just me I've witnessed other people lose their emotional stability after meeting with him. He abuses his authority. to further back up my opinion; I know a good friend of mine from high school that actually join the Peace Corps and carries around a Bible because he loves Jesus so much and he wants to do good in the world, shadowed him at Regions Hospital in his behavior towards clients affected him so much he questioned whether or not he wanted to be a doctor! The saddest part is that's the way he treats vulnerable people in a psychiatric ward that have no ability to stand up for themselves thus he abuses his authority. I think he is sadistic and cruel.

Dr. Van Doren provided above average care to me. He is extremely competent and was able to build a plan that was holistic and effective. He not only trusted my feelings it was like he understood me. I didn’t feel any judgment from him and would trust any member of my family to him. The relief I felt to find a provider that understood the physical and psychological components of mental health is unique. Thank you for caring for me. I will refer many more to your practice.

I found Dr. Van Dorn to be extremely easy to talk to. He seemed genuinely interested in my well being and shared some pretty awesome insight in regards to my current overall mental health situation. It's almost as if the universe guided me his way. I know that sounds cheesy but it's 100% accurate. He's well versed in his field and is probably going to be my primary provider in the next few weeks or so.
