Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cole "My patients get highly personal care. I try to understand the big picture of your life. I believe in the biologic basis of psychiatric symptoms and the value of medication for symptom control. But often, more work is needed to have a good life. I am informal, friendly, warm and believe in straight talk. I never see patients for brief 15 minute visits. Patients do best if you have a real relationship with them and if they feel that you care about them as real people and are glad to see them."

Patient Comments (2)

Not for those that want a Dr. to quickly check in with 1x month. I feel like a new person after every visit (been going for ~2 years) -- seriously. He's professional without being stuffy, extremely knowledgable without being arrogant, and genuinely gives a damn. Always makes time for you.

This guy is a total nut job. One session he acts orderly and courteous, the other he's more profane than a comedian, pops pills in front of me, and fall asleep while I'm answering his questions. He never cleaned his office during the time I was seeing him. He changed my diagnosis about 10 times...more
