What People Say About Dr. Brian Hocking, PHD

Seemed more interested in merely conducting business than in helping people. This doctor does not practice collaborative therapy but instead insists on having total control. Quick to anger and lose his temper if you try to question him. Fortunately I found this out quickly. You will leave asking yourself who really needs the help. Buyer beware.

Empathetic and super caring psychologist who has really helped me. Dr. Hocking is direct and knowledgeable. He has been genuinely concerned about me through it all and what has been in my best interests. My psychotherapy progress has been excellent thanks to Dr. Hocking.

Dr. Hocking "gets me". He has an understanding of my medical problems (overweight, asthma) and understands my sense of humor. He is willing to accommodate my sometimes frantic work schedule, and communicates easily by either phone or text - I'm comfortable with both.

While I was waiting for my appointment my 2 year-old daughter became a little noisy. As I was trying to calm her and take her outside Dr. Hocking came out and rudely told me I needed to take my child outside that she was disturbing his work. He didn't have a client at the time and I was doing my best to get her out of the building before she could fuss again. He refused to meet with me and wanted to reschedule. My husband was 5 min. away and coming pick her up. I refused and will never go back.
