I have gone through about 8-12 medications none are able to control my anxiety and panic attacks and they keep trying to put me on medications that we previously tried. One more visit for me and I am officially done with their services.

Dr. Fawver has lost his touch. He no longer listens or involves the patient in the decision-making process. Over the phone help is extinct. It is all about office visits. Wait time sometimes at an hour. He does have two great NPs.

I had awful experiences with a previous psychiatrist in the fort wayne area, including that psychiatrist leaving me as a patient (he was moving) and not offering any recommendations for further treatment. My family practitioner referred me to Dr. Fawver, and I'm so grateful she did. For the first time in years of treatment, they actually did a thorough evaluation. Dr. Fawver's staff is wonderful, caring, supportive, and they actually give options with treatment. I'm so thankful!

Was referred to him by my counselor.. and called to try to make an appointment and the receptionist was just absolutely rude and wouldn't give us the time of day to even talk.. she made us seem dumb and made us feel like we didn't know what we were talking about.. so again terrible experience.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fawvers for a little over a year now and this office is the best experience I have had with any doctor or staff. The first appointment is about 2 hours. You fill out a survey, are asked detailed questions, and then you meet with Dr. Fawver. The meeting with Fawver lasts about 20 minutes. He really listens, is nonjudgmental, and knows more about medicine than anyone I've met. Staff is great and truly caring. I can't recommend this office enough!

I was referred to Dr. Fawver b/c I heard he was one of the best doctors for psychiatry in Ft. Wayne. My appt took almost 2hrs since it was my first appt. Dr. Fawver spent maybe 5 mins with me & then decided on a course of treatment. I didn't agree w/ the course of treatment set forth & asked what other options I had? I was told that what he decided was office policy & I was to do it or else. Needless to say I'm getting a second opinion. I don't like being backed into a corner.

Dr. Fawver and Staff are the absolute best in the industry. They actually listened to my concerns (medication was not working, I felt worse), did a thorough assessment, and finally filled in the missing pieces that I desperately needed to get on track. Mental illness is no joke so it was very important to me to find out everything and map out a plan of success to manage every day life. I have a long way to go, but his honesty, professionalism, and education/experience led me to answers.
