Terrible experience. Dr. Trail is dismissive of parent input and will not coordinate care with other providers (beyond suggesting he could give us a copy of his session notes to the parents to share; I was there and have my own notes). Many times he stated he just focused on medicine; basically he likes to work in a silo, I suppose. The office policies are also ridiculous. To have Dr. Trail as a provider, we were forced to switch pediatricians to a Mercy Provider after years of going to the same pediatric practice. When we tried to switch psychiatrists, we were told the office does not do that. What? Mercy is a large health system covered by my insurance and if I have a bad experience with one provider I can't take the initiative to change and find a better fit. Old school provider and policies that are not patient centered.

Awful office staff. Awful doctor. Do NOT recommend. Only gave 1 star just to be able to post this review. Doctor is very condescending, unsympathetic. Go ANYWHERE else but this office.

Terrible! Not sure what kind or perk, bonus, or pay off he gets to push certain meds like Prozac but after repeated visits about changing medication all we got was let's increase, increase, increase the dose every appoinment. Will not speak directly to you on the phone, will only relay messages through office staff. Doesn't care about your child's mental well being but will gladly let you come in for an appointment $$ just so he can feed you more excuses.

We have been with Dr. Trail for over 15yrs. My children were patients when he had his combined med/psych practice. He is great with ADHD along with mental health issues.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Trying to make an appointment is difficult to make one in a timely manner. I called in June and couldn't get in until April. They called to reschedule because he was going out of town. They called again to reschedule. This is ridiculous! We can't get in and receive the proper care and help that we need. Obviously, his patient overload is too much. He has not provided any help to us since we began seeing him 2 years ago.
