Only my first visit.
Dr. Awosika appeared to be very attentive and listened to everything I said and took a lot of notes. He was friendly, calm and knowledgeable. I can't really provide too much information after my initial consult, but I'm feeling very optimistic about my treatment going forward.

I've stuck with him for 10 years. He's really been a big part of getting my life back together more than once, and is always very understanding. He also always takes into consideration what I am and what meds I am not comfortable taking.

Dr. Awosika is a truly caring and thoughtful psychiatrist focused on quality patient-centered treatment. He has a wonderful gift of truly listening and take care of patients' individual needs without trying to push medication if not needed. EXTREMELY wonderful psychiatrist and if I could give him 6 Stars I would!

He is amazing great patient psychiatry however I will no longer be attending his sessions if the staff the follow through in the communication every time I’ve spoken with my doctor or received a medication prescription I’ve had a call numerous times to try to get it called in organized and ordered. It seems that the process never is done correctly and takes hours or never gets done I love my communication like I said with my psychiatrist it’s however that the process of everything else has ruined the relationship that I can continue to have I myself when I’m in the need of some thing we turn to mental health we want structure and fall through unfortunately because of the clinic itself it fails.

Words cannot express my gratitude for the exceptional care I receive. Dr. Awosika and Mary Guest were critical in helping me recover from a recent mental health crisis. I’m an adult female with ADHD, Fibromyalgia and depression that rears it’s ugly head from time to time. Dr. Awosika has taken the time to know what my overall wellness goals are. He has not gone for the quick fix as some less skilled or less compassionate Psychiatrists do. He recognized I need psychological support along with the right medications to address underlying issues. I have never been spoken down to, felt belittled or shamed. I feel genuinely cared for and about. I have more clarity, hope and day to day joy than I have for years. Dr. A and Mary Guest guided and supported me to achieve this. I have an exceptional support network of friends and family but having these highly skilled and non bias professionals is where the most progress has been made.
