Dr. Brigham is the best psychiatrist I have ever had. And I've had a few, especially in my younger years when I wasn't so compliant! He always stuck by me and now I am ever so grateful. I have been able to start coming off meds because I'm much better. And Dr. Brigham has a lot to do with that!!

I have been seeing Dr. Brigham for 15 + years. He is very kind and knowledgeable. He has given me some of the best advice and is willing to work with you if you would like to make med changes.
