I have experienced excellent care with Dr. Jones for over one year. I trust his fifty years of experience and feel very secure and confident in his treatment plans for my Social Anxiety and ADD conditions. I highly recommend his expertise in these treatment areas!

i do not trust this doctor. he does not familiarize himself with patients and has no aspect of friendliness. if you'd like to be treated as a number and not as a patient this would be the perfect fit for you. also struggles with basic computing making short visits take much longer than needed.

He's easy to schedule an appointment with so far. Flexible hours and his appointments aren't long so if you really only have 20 minutes, that's all the time you need. He gets you in and out of there. My big issue with Dr. Jones is that he spends that entire 20 minutes on his laptop and has yet to make eye contact with me. He's sort of humorless. Makes me feel like a science experiment or a checklist he's got to fulfill, rather than a person. Not a fan really.

He would not refill my prescription. I am an existing patient and after 3 years, he just decided that I would not be his patient anymore. FOR NO REASON. Oh, his reason, was "He forgot to review my file"I had to call the medical director in Raleigh, to report a complaint against Ralphie. Patient abandonment is unacceptable. Unethical and does not care.
