Dr Giakas is knowledgeable in the treatment of treatment resistant depression. It is difficult to find a doctor who specializes in this type of treatment. From prescriptions to TMS treatment, his office/ staff are the " go-to people" for management. I am so thankful I have found them!

This is my second review as I have found it difficult to contain my happiness. Dr. Giakas had exceeded my expectations as a psychiatrist and human being. Any concerns or changes I encountered, he gracefully handled. I could recommend him more. He truly saved my life. My entire family thanks him.

Dr. Giakis has provided excellent care to me. He's extremely knowledgeable about medications. He listens carefully. Dr Giakis fits my requirements from a good provider, in that he is professional at all times, but caring and has a sense of humor. I even took my mother to Dr. Giakis. Plus he has good magazines.

After a triple bypass that left me with a disability, losses, I was had mental health issues: I went to Rockford Medical Pychiatric services, seeking some relief from stress anxiety and depression. Angie Brechlin APN assessed me and prescribed the right types of medications, also referring me to Anita Thomas-Bua for counseling. Within 3 months, I felt somewhat back to “my old self” again. Cindy Brockway made me feel comfortable as a Segway with insurance. Nicole great with reminder calls,
