Dr. Davidson has some good and bad qualities and they are both equally important. The good qualities is that Dr. Davidson can take you on walk-in basis when needed. More good news is that he takes most all insurances. The last great news is that he has migrated smoothly to tele-health appointments, and I don’t have to leave my house. Now for the bad news: He doesn’t do anything to work out an action plan, and he strictly writes prescriptions. Dr. D doesn’t treat any of his patients with individuality, so don’t expect it. Lastly, he will spend roughly 6 minutes on you, and that’s about how many times he will look away from his computer. However if you see him via Telehealth, of course there’s no way of telling if he even looks at you or not.

If you want someone to write the scrip and send you on your way then this is the one. He is NOT someone who listens closely. He lacks empathy, and doesn’t appear to have a passion to help people. He mostly comes off as someone who wants to make money off your provider while doing as little work as possible.

Dr. Raymond Davidson is excellent! I love his front office staff as well. I had called their office to be seen and I got an appointment STAT, the front was efficient with me and my needs. Dr. Davidson evaluated me, and I was in and out in no time! I didn't have to pay for parking! Love it! I recommend anyone who may see him, do it.

Dr. Davidson is a solid 2/10 of a psychiatrist, an MD script writer if i may. He does not listen fully when you talk to him & he always seems judgmental. Left multiple appointments on the verge of tears, thank you for the insults! Go to him if you love being degraded and not listened to!!

Dr David is rude, arrogant, insulting and uncaring. Don’t go unless you like being insulted. Don’t go to him if you want any actual help. He also will say one thing during one appointment then the opposite the next appointment. Ten minutes or less is not enough time for any doctor to get to know a patient. This MD is basically a prescription pill writer.

DR Davidson and his staff are so hard working and wonderful. DR D is very knowledgeably about medications and can steer you in the right direction. I have been to several other docs over the years and none of them knew as much as him about how the meds really work and could make the spot on recommendations he can . He is willing to work with you.

He was the most horrible doctor I have ever encountered. worst bedside manner. Very self centered. Really needs to get out of the business. Tried to walk out when he stopped me to show me the door to parking lot. Criticised other doctors saying he is the only doctor on Island who knows what he is doing...Walked out of there feeling worse than I did when I walked in. All negative reviews are spot on.... Shame on him. People go to him for help and he uses them to inflate his ego. Sad!!!

Possibly the worst doctors visit i have ever had. Asking for the reason of visit, i told him depression and anxiety and he never asked why, when, how severe. Never made eye contact and when prescribing a new med for me, advised me we could talk more about it on our next visit.

His staff got me in super quick and the waiting room entertainment is always that good eddenborough stuff! Almost don't mind at all waiting the 15 or so minutes if at all. While being very relaxed,Dr. Davidson will pinpoint your needs, easing the feelings of telling anybody you are a little off. Thank you again Raymond, see you next week!

Davidson is hands down the worst physician I have ever been to. And I've had a long life.. I transferred to him from an excellent doctor that accepted a job as the head of psychiatry at another facility. Davidson wanted to suddenly change and reduce my medications that had been working with the doctor I had been seeing for years and years. After speaking with him for 7 mins, he flat out did not respect my doctor's professional assessments at all. I could not believe how bad it could be for some

Can't believe some of the other reviews on here, Dr. Davidson is really a good person, and an excellent doctor. I have struggled for a long time, and he definitely has not turned me away once, and he does care. There are sometimes long waits, but I have walked in without appointments several times and he always took the time to see me. I would highly recommend him. Sometimes he does kind of get me in and out, but to be honest, that is how I prefer it with all my doctors.

Going to this doctor has been the worst experience I’ve ever had in my life with any doctor. You cannot talk to him or trust him and he is unwilling to listen. You cannot ask questions. He does not work with patients

I’m shocked at some of the reviews here! After trying 2 psychiatrists (and finding one of them to be more unstable than any of his patients & the other had a waiting room over-run by drug seekers who chatted about their Hep A & scratched their invisible itches while I cowered in a corner) my husband found Dr. Davidson. His practice is well-run, his offices are clean, his support staff are friendly and accommodating. Most importantly, Dr. Davidson got me on the right meds so I can enjoy life.
