Dr. Dippy is a very well educated, old school psychiatrist. He asks lots of questions and listens openly. He is not like the younger ones who ask a few questions and send you on your way with prescriptions for two medications. He really cares to find out the TRUE source of your unhappiness and THEN, discusses ways to improve your mental health.

Often very long waits after arriving on time. Sometimes over an hour. He can also be somewhat forgetful. I am beginning to think that at 82, Dr, Dippy has seen better days. God bless him though.
