      Finally! I found someone who does not try to fix my problems with pills. Dr. Dabney is an intelligent, experienced physician who listened to my problems and worked with me to find underlying issues. I highly recommend her.

      I had online counseling with Dr. Dadney. Though this counseling only involved written corespondence, she told me I had a personality disorder. She refused to tell me which one or why she thought so. She pressured me to date, was overbearing, insisted I had trauma I did not have, & treated me as though I was a dishonest person at an extremely vulnerable time for me. Later I was formally and properly diagnosed with autism. She had no way of properly identifying my social communication impairments.

      Dr. Dabney provides a great experience for the patient by creating an environment built on trust, safety and openness. She does not provide the answers per se' but asks the tough questions that cause you to really become introspective and more self aware. She has helped me significantly in helping me become a better person for myself which in turn has made me a better father, a better husband and a better friend. She and her entire staff are really focused on the patient.

      I've been seeing Dr. Dabney for quite some time, as I've had a long way to go. She has been my faithful guide. She has always had my best interests at the forefront, and her power of unbiased observation is amazing. I'm in a much better place, and it is due to her approach. And she's always there for you. Thank you Dr. Dabney!

      I contacted Dr. Dabney's office after experiencing panic attacks and anxiety after a deployment, something I have never dealt with before. I was assigned Dr. Heidel. She gave me insight and points of view on my mental health that I never realized before and we explored things about my life that I didn't realize made such a huge impact on my mental health. With the medication management and a thorough understanding about my mental condition, I am able to control my anxiety and panic attacks.

      Like no other psych practice. Dr. Dabney worked with me personally, did not have to go through staff to make appointments or talk to her. I learned so much, incredible really.

      I found Dr. Dabney to be very helpful during the time that I worked with her. However, be cautious about seeing her. She can be over confident and does not take feedback well. She told me I had a personality disorder and would not dicuss any details about it with me. I was also absurdly told I had an addiction. She began setting goals for me & I had a ton of anxiety until I no longer saw her. I have only once experienced this same anxiety again in counseling from fear of have the same experience

      After, the only session with me, she said that she caught me in a lie. HOW can she know I was lying? Also, she said that I insulted her (HER problem with interpretation) when I was confused by her question and stated why I responded the way I did. Finally, when I spoke about the acceptance of hitting children in the 1950,s( remember the school principals hitting your hands with a ruler), she wrote that I was beaten by my father!!!! Overall, I found her narcissistic in her beliefs

      After I told her I used drugs when I was 15 (I'm 23 now) she refused to take me as a patient unless I returned after 1 year of rehab which is ridiculous. She didn't even suggest other therapists/psychiatrists I could try. She even had the audacity to expect payment for her nonexistent services. On top of all that she didn't take insurance. I left more upset and disheartened then when I got there.

      Dr. Dabney is quite caring, very knowledgeable and is very accessible to her patients, understanding that her patients may need assistance after office hours. I appreciate that she wants to spend time discovering the why behind the presenting problems and not just write a prescription to cover up the problem.
