Dr. Taiwo is a doctor beyond compare with his infinite wisdom and professional support. I have been a patient of his for over ten years, and he supports my needs with grace, faith, intelligence, and compassion. My struggles haven't defined me thanks to Dr. Taiwo. He promotes positive solutions and the correct medication combination to keep my head clear and productive in my everyday work and personal life. Through his guidance, I am a wonderful contributing member in my community. I am also happily married and understand how to manage my difficulties with class and strength.

Dr. Taiwo started to treat my wife Soraya Khafagy from over twenty years of depression. Dr. Taiwo used low does medication and the magnetic wave that targeted the emotion area of the brain. Now I see here with a more frequent smiles on her face. Dr Taiwo pleasant personality, friendly attitude, and unmatched medical experience was a must in treatment of my wife depression condition. Dr. Taiwo, aided by a very capable and professional staff such as nurse Melissa who was in charge of the magnetic wave frequency machine was able to bring back a smile to my wife face, in less than a year of treatment. Dr. Taiwo, Nurse Melissa, and the team of professionals who are working at Southern Behavioral Healthcare Office, have my eternal gratitude and thanks for a work well done.

Fantastic doctor. Terrible office staff and nurses. I had to find another doctor when my repeated prescription refill requests were ignored. I was put on hold and no one picked up on the line when I tried to call to leave a message for the doctor. My child went into a downward spiral because of the lapse in the antidepressant medication.

I have been a patient at Southern Behavioral Healthcare in Fayettville, GA for a year now. I love that man! I have struggled for so long prior to being under Dr. Taiwo’s care. His approach is very different than what I had experienced with other psychiatrist in the past. Prior to his treatment plan, I was semi hospitalized and was in danger of losing my job. Dr. Taiwo helped me navigate through the FMLA process at work. I’m doing better than ever at work and in my relationships. I also appreciated that Dr. Taiwo did not jump to any conclusions. I went through a very thorough evaluation before receiving a diagnosis and Dr. Taiwo explained everything. He never rushes my appointments. He gives me the time I need. He has been a blessing in my life. I believe my treatment has been successful because Dr. Taiwo he is available, relatable, genuine, spiritual; most of all, he believes in me and restored my hope in the effectiveness of treatment.

Great experience! He assessed my issues, set up a treatment plan and I haven't felt this good in over 10 years. Friendly, knowledgable, easy to communicate with and l highly recommended his practice!

Dr. T is a wonderful doctor. From the start he's been a huge help to my family. But his office staff is the worst!! They immediately put you on hold when you call in. And then leave you on hold until you give up and hang up out of frustration. I've complained but they never do anything about it.

He is rude. I have been going to this office for almost two years. At first I was seeing him. Then he assigned me to his PA. She was very nice and caring. Today I just experienced the worst experience ever at any doctor’s office. I guess my visit went over the allowed time today with the PA because I had some major concerns with a 7 year old and needed help. He came in and ended the visit and stated that he only should see me for 10 -15 minutes because Medicaid and insurance don’t pay much. I could not believe the words coming out a professional’s mouth. He will be reported to Medicaid and every source that I can to inform others of how I was treated.
