Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Our daughter has been seeing Dr. Fernald for several years. On our last appointment he ended by telling us this was our last appointment as he was leaving the practice the following day. No advance notice. Nothing. He even changed her medication that last appointment with no possible follow-up. Now we're scrambling to find a new doctor.

I needed to cancel and reschedule an appointment. I have 3 kids, things come up. He said I was not allowed to do that. If I didn't show up I would be charged the full amount for the appointment like as if I had no insurance. What would that be like $200? So I of course had to go to the appointment. Disorganized office to.

Dr. Fernald was advised over several visits that my daughter would be attending college in another State and would need to make sure that her medication would last until she would return for winter break in December. He did NOT and when asked if we needed to make an additional appointment prior to her departure or how to proceed to get another refill while she was away we received a letter in the mail stating that he would "no longer be providing psychiatric services" Who does that?

I just had my first few visits with him. He's very easy to talk to. He recommended medication and talk therapy. The follow up time is reasonable and the office staff is very friendly.

Dr seemed friendly at first appointments but after seeing him for over a year , it became apparent he really lacked knowledge or remembered any details of previous visits. He is always running at least 1/2 hr late. I booked the first appointment of the day a few times and both times he was late. The staff is efficient but not very friendly and the office looks like it hasn't been remodeled since the 70!s. Don't know why it's so hard to find a good, decent Psychatrist in this area. : (
