I have been seeing Dr. O for over two years and he is wonderful. I am a therapist myself and have worked with many different psychiatrists over the years, and I feel strongly that he is top-notch. He is warm, friendly, knowledgeable, respectful, and a good listener. He has extensive training and experience in psychiatry to draw from and is very professional, yet still completely approachable. I question whether the negative reviews are from people who were disgruntled because he didn’t give them exactly what they wanted in order to protect their health (opioids to someone with a history of chemical addiction, for example). The office is clean, comfortable, and private, and staff members are professional. Also this office offers TMS, a noninvasive medical procedure that I recommend with all my heart to anyone struggling with chronic depression. My depression of 20-plus years was cured by TMS at Pinnacle, which was a true miracle for me. I am so grateful for Pinnacle and Dr. O!!!

His receptionists are all nosey morons. Pinnacle Behavioral Clinic is the epitome of "people that don't deserve your business". They refused to see me unless I gave them cash even though they received Medicare and Medicaid. Also, the receptionist assaulted me by grabbing my wrist just so I would not bother my Nurse Practitioner, Cassidy Peterson. When I told Ms. Peterson, she could care less I was assaulted. Dr. Awasika did apologize on behalf of his staff for the assault after I called the police, however , after he wanted me to hand over my credit card numbers after he called me and told me he was not concerned about money. Just do yourself a favor and bypass the bull.

I have been a patient of Dr. Awosika for several years. He truly cares and asks how I am and follows up with whatever I had going on in my personal life after not seeing me for three months. Every time I see him I feel comfortable and very cared for as a whole person. I have seen many, many Psychiatrist and never have I had one who cared about how I have been actually feeling and quickly put me at ease with his advice and expertise and knowledge of many wonderful medications. Thank you, so much

Dr Awosika WILL invade your privacy while he checks your social media accounts. More often than not, he will do what is in his best interest and not the patient's. The two receptionists constantly complain about their job - creating a very negative atmosphere. Dr Awosika's education AND residency is questionable at best. Oh yeah, he is NOT afraid to completely stop your medications, regardless of your side effects. I would highly encourage patients to seek care of a different psychiatrist.

I have been mentally ill for 16 years and you have been the kindest, most helpful and certainly the funniest and best psychiatrist I have ever known. I almost went into the hospital recently but you helped me right away; and I am so thankful that my life is busy and back to normal! You made mu gratitude list today! I thanks God for you. You are amazing!
