Once you have met with Dr. Early, you will need to see no other psychiatrist. I have seen many and he is so far beyond the others in expertise and sheer humanity that it is laughable. He is far, far, ahead of his colleagues. Such a treasure, and a true healer. You are in good hands with him.

The woman, working at the front desk, with the short brown hair was completely obnoxious and inappropriate!

I trust Dr. Early's opinion implicitly. I can ask him anything and not feel judged.

I honestly can't say enough positive things about Dr. Early, all of the other doctor's I've seen have made my condition so much worse but Dr. Early is the first doctor to give me relief from horrific bipolar depression and mood swings. I don't have fits of rage or feel like I'm going to explode all the time anymore and the depression is so much easier to bear.
