Dr. McClure pretty much saved my life. It has taken years to find just the right meds, but he has been patient, caring and kind. He has given me hope and encouragement even in the darkest days. I would rate him higher than your scale ending with five stars!

Although Dr. McClure was somewhat helpful to me for a while, at one point when I called to make another appointment he told me he was retiring from practice and so could not see me anymore. Perusing the internet last week I discovered that was a complete lie- he never stopped practicing, but evidently he did not want to continue with me as a client. I wish he had not lied to me- it's called into question all my interactions with him due to his unprofessional and disrespectful behavior.

Not helpful at all and was quick to drop me as a patient when I was desperately seeking his help. I felt comfortable with him, but realized very quickly that it was all about the money. So disappointing to have a doctor in this field be so distant and aloof to helping vulnerable patients.

While I don't doubt Dr McClures abilities in Psychotherapy, his office sent me to collections after 90 days for a bill I never received. The amount was settled promptly with the collections agency however I now have a negative scar in my credit report for a ridiculously low amount.

Dr. MClure is compassionate and understanding. With his excellent knowledge of the pharmaceutical side of treatment, he was able to get me stabilized quickly. With regular visits, Dr. McClure was able to help me maintain my health for the past 3 years. I am leaving the state and will miss him greatly.

I have struggled with depression and insomnia most of my adult life. I met with another Psychiatrist for 15 years and felt still experienced moderate depression and thought that was the best I could ever feel. When I met with Dr. M. he said " let's make you feel great again " and he came up with a combination of meds that have me feeling great about life! I truly never thought I could experience so much daily joy!! He is an excellent Doctor and is such an interesting person!

i have been fighting my problem and i was at the end with no hope. I went online to find the best psychiatrist i can find and his name came up. I made an appointment and he gave me the right medication and it did change my life. I am still a work in progress and my future is very promising because of him.

I have been a patient of Dr. McClure for approximately five or six years. I have found him to be very concerned with my concerns and very knowledgeable about what treatment I should be receiving. He listens carefully to my explanations of how I feel and recommends changes in my medication if he feels it necessary. I am well satisfied with Dr. McClure as my psychiatrist.

I have seen Dr. McClure for ten years. He helped me through a particularly difficult path of spiritual awakening and also a psychosis diagnosis. I believe Dr. McClure is one of the only psychiatric doctors in Colorado open to a person's spiritual experience. He honored my process, helped me separate the psychosis from the spiritual and I am very thankful for his support and expertise. I would recommend Dr. McClure to anyone struggling.

My husband began seeing Dr. McClure 14 months ago. He was at a very low spot, in his mid-50's, and felt like he had tried everything and had seen every doctor with no success. Fortunately we came across Dr. McClure through a recommendation. Dr. McClure has been able to help my husband when no other doctor could seem to find the right combination of treatments. Dr. McClure is a straight shooting doctor. The difference is simply amazing! We are so thankful for Dr. McClure!

My wife and I both see Dr. McClure for psychiatric review and prescribing supplemental medications to assist with our conditions to complement our regular clinical psychology sessions. Dr. McClure keeps up to date on new medications and combinations of medicines that are specifically helpful in treating a wide variety of psychiatric issues. He is friendly, a great listener, and infuses his dry humor into discussions to put his patients more at ease.

I have been a patient of Dr. McClure for 4 years. I have seen many psychiatrists over the years to treat my bipolar disorder I've had for 17 years. He is far and away the best psychiatrist I've have ever been treated by. Dr. M is personable, and regards you as a human being instead of just an entity with a disease. He is interested in your life circumstances and gets to know you. He isn't just someone with a prescription pad. He is an excellent physician. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been seeing Dr. McClure for over five years now. I find him to be a total professional, with a warm personality as well. I have no doubts concerning his knowledge and familiarity with current treatments. On occasion, I have not agreed with him 100%; but still I feel my opinion is respected, and I am able to talk the issue through with him. He does not want to see you three times a week forever - and that's fine with me. Our appointments feel thorough and completed to me.

Dr. McClure is very thorough. He worked to understand the big picture of my life to then be able to prescribe in a knowledgeable way. After he corrected my meds, I'm back to being myself, and I'm very grateful for that. Very personable and understanding. Highly recommended.

Dr. McClure lied about 80% of what he said. I was on the same medication when i came to see him he upped my dosage to 3 times a day making it 6 mg a day so he lied about me staying on the same dosage. "phone appts" should give you a idea of what your going to get when you see him. he lied about very early refills i got one early refill because i misplaced my meds and he implicated i was abusing my medication. he's lieing to protect his reputation that's it. He cares about your money that's it.

Dr McClure asks a lot of questions and listens very well before making any kind prognosis. No assumptions are made. When prescribing medications to treat my condition, he is very clear on what the medication is designed to do, how it works and potential side affects to be aware of. On my follow up appointments, questions are asked. He seeks details with the goal of finding out if things are truly working the way they should. I wish I would have found Dr. McClure ten years ago.

Dr. M is a mastermind when it comes to diagnosing and finding the right combination of medications for patients. I was in pretty rough shape when I moved out here and he built me up to my current medication combination which is working very well. One of the first psychs that would work with me and not just shove meds my way. I enjoy sitting in the room listening to the classical music before the appointment starts. It's relaxing and I'm glad there is no front desk individual.
