I highly recommend Dr. Duffy in terms of psychiatric care. I cannot speak to the effectiveness of all of the staff underneath him, although many if not most of them are more than helpful when requested. Nowhere is part of the U.S. are facilities available with the capabilities that are had in Dr. Duffy's facility, Premier Psychiatric. In addition to basic psychiatry services, a whole array of alternative options are available for those that are unable or unwilling to medicate.

Very good Salesman!

This is my third year at premier psychiatry and I've seen Dr Duffy once and only because the nurse practitioner required his authorization. This is my only interaction with him and it lasted 15 seconds therefore I cannot objectively review him. The key to success with any issue that is as important as one's being is to find the root cause of the problem and work with the therapists, at premier or elsewhere, and use medication as the bridge. These reviews are "quick fix" personal issues; IMO.

Specifically scheduled out to make sure I got to see Dr. Duffy. Arrived for my appointment and was told he was at the Omaha office for the day. Was told not to worry as all records are kept on their computer system. Met with a different provider who spent a majority of the time reading notes on computer. Very awkward experience.

We drove an hour to see him, based on a recommendation from a physician we respect. Not only did we NOT even see Dr. Duffy, with whom we had an appointment, they assigned us to an associate who was putting in his last day. Obviously Dr. Duffy does not need our business as he couldn't even be bothered to see us at our first appointment. See someone else.

Dr. Duffy and his staff talk down to you and make you feel as if you are stupid. There are difficult to make appointments with and are not willing to give leeway on giving refills to last a patient until their scheduled appointment making the patient involuntarily go withdrawal from their mental health medication. The practice itself is a mess. So many of his providers have left that I have seen a different one at every appointment.
