We were referred to Dr. Peter Ly and are very happy with the results. He is the most patient and insightful doctor I've yet to meet. He is kind, listens to what you have to say as well as what you don't say. He is very knowledgeable, helps find the root of the problem, and helps tackle the problem without making anyone feel uncomfortable. I definitely recommend Dr. Ly!

I am very comfortable with speaking with Dr. Ly about my mental health needs and I never feel pressured or embarrassed about it. He listens to my feedback about how medications are working for me and makes adjustments accordingly and promptly so I can start my medication regiment immediately. He encourages me to reach out to him whenever I need him. He takes good notes to know how medication has treated me. He's a great physician and I would definitely recommend him for any mental health treatment!

I really don't understand the positive reviews. I understand some people ARE looking for a doctor that will just spend 2-5 minutes with them so they can get/continue their medication and move on, but some of us aren't. Some of us want someone with good bedside manner, who can give more time so they can listen to our concerns, so necessary topics can be discussed so they aren't prescribing something that may exacerbate another issue you have. I have felt small each time I've seen/talked to Dr. Ly. You are absolutely just a number to him in his care.

Dr Ly is the only psychiatrist that has been genuinely concerned about how I’m doing. Every time I need to speak to him about my medication, he calls me back within a few hours to resolve whatever is going on at the time. I’ve been to many doctors who made me feel rushed and like I didn’t matter, but Dr Ly is not at all like that. If anyone is currently struggling with their doctor, I highly recommend giving him a shot. I promise you will not regret it!

What I like best about Dr Ly is that he takes baby step and lets me decide what meds are helping and at what dose I am comfortable with. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Ly. I usually only write reviews when I'm displeased with my Dr. but this guy deserves a good review.

Dr. Ly has wonderful "bedside manner" and provides excellent service. He is efficient and thorough and really makes you feel at ease during appointments. Everything about my visits from the time I arrive to the time I leave has always been top-notch. Little wait time, friendly staff, easy appointment scheduling and a great doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Ly; I have referred several friends to him and will continue to do so.

Dr. Ly has been amazing. I was lost on how to help my son when he was suffering with some stress and anxiety. He was completely booked and one day after praying very hard. He called and worked us in. It has been almost a year now. Even though my son is well now we still follow up with Dr. Ly. He is a fabulous caring man.

I have been seeing Dr. Ly for a few years now, and I like his manor and style, but I think he my have too many patients. There are a number of times I feel like it is just short of waiting in line at appointment times. I've been there on time for my appointment, and then waited 30-40 mins. for him to come out and get 2-3 patients who have been there since before me. He should probably plan a few catch up blocks into his day so he's not 3 appointments behind at 2pm.

Tried to get my 16 yr old son an appointment (May) and his first available appointment is Oct. Wow, so much for the caring Dr who wants to truly help people. I was told you have to be suicidal to get urgent help. So very sad.
