I was his patient for years. He was the only person I trusted. I trusted him so much I asked you to take my dog if something happened to me. He said yes.When she needed surgery and I was worried about the money, he asked if I wanted him to lend me the money. I told him I wanted to find it somewhere else if I could. When I couldn't, I wrote him a note accepting his offer. He blew up at me. The only person in the world that I trusted suddenly hated me. Maybe he didn't remember the offer. Maybe he was joking when he made the offer. I believed him and thought he meant it. He wouldn't listen to me when I tried to remind him. I didn't understand then and I don't now and it has been years. He just hated me. To have someone you trust and need turn on you when you did nothing wrong is devastating. To have your psychiatrist do it teaches you that you can never trust anyone. I never cried so much in my life until my dog died recently. Be wary.

I have been looking for quite some time for a psychiatrist that would do therapy as well as medication. I feel that my best treatment would be from a doctor that will talk to me about my concerns and he would better be able to know what medications (if needed) would work the best for me. Dr. Neill is that doctor. He listens to me and knows my concerns. He is aware of medical problems and medications I have taken. I have been in therapy with him and my life has greatly improved!

Dr. Neill is absolutely the BEST at what he does, and he does a lot. Most psychiatrists who do medication management for mental health either aren't the most effective counselors or don't do counseling at all. Dr. Neill is highly skilled and experienced with both. The thing I appreciate most about Dr. Neill is that he makes himself completely available to his patients; you never have the sense that he feels inconvenienced or that he's watching the clock. I highly recommend him!

Absolutely the best Dr in my top 2 I have ever met. In all fields. He blew my mind in his knowledge and compassion. He actually cares about his patients as a whole and is extremely empathetic. He's like the god send you've been looking for, if you are down and no one will help or listen go to him, pay private fee's he's probably under charging. I'm just etatic I found him he really hit home and wanted to understand me and my life from a child to adulthood and is always availible for emergencies.
