I have been in and out of the mental healthcare system for almost 20 years of my life. I have been to numerous doctors over the years and by far Dr. Draughon has been a shining light. Not only was she incredibly intuitive that i was severely over-medicated from a previous doctor but she was able to correctly diagnose and manage my medication so that i was brought back to life. I have been able to function better than i could have ever imagined given my current mental conditions thanks to Dr. D.

I am one of doctor D's patients. I have only amazing things to say for an about her. She truly has changed an helped me become a better person. I highly highly recommend her to anyone who wants a person who cares, listens, an gets you to a state of well being. I did not know how mentally drained, physically drained, an misurable all the way around. After sesstions with dr. D i have grown to understand that life is not that way. An that life can be normal, an exceptional. She is a true hero.

She did not listen and was very bold in her assumptions. At my first appt, she suggested we talk about "how to get you out of your marriage". She was unaware of the severe withdrawal effects of my med and had me taper off of it in 5 days. She ignored my concerns and at my next appt I had to tell her what dosages to prescribe so I could taper off more slowly. "You really like this med, don't you?" No. I want to be OFF this med but the side effects are SEVERE. She still did not take me seriously.

Dr. Draughon is the most incredible psychiatrist I've ever met with. Not only does she do everything she's capable of doing to make you healthy and happy, but she also takes your thoughts into consideration with your therapy. She relates well with her patients, she cuts to the chase, she's encouraging, and she treats her patients like a friend-in-need. For anyone going through a tough time and needing psychiatric therapy, Dr. Draughon is marvelous. I highly recommend her.

Ivonne is such a personable doctor. I always feel comfortable with her as she always listens. She cares by responding with compassion. She desires to know me as a person, not just a patient. Even when I am feeling bad, I always leave encouraged. My life has changed since I began seeing her. She has gotten on the right balance of medication... for me. I am very thankful to have found her and I highly recommend her.

Dr. Draughon has been a blessing to find. She is very understanding, compassionate and knowledgable. I always feel that she really listens and allows plenty of time and input to get to the root of the issue. She is very flexible as well and cares about my concerns, encouraging me to try a treatment but never pushy. So glad she is here in Wake Forest!

She really has respect for me as a client and knows that I am the person who has to do the work and knows what I have to do to improve my health. Super smart and intuitive. She was able to diagnose a situation I had that had never been addressed. I am very grateful for that.

Dr.D is one of a kind. She made me feel comfortable from the very first visit. She took time to ask questions and get to know me and my situation. She is very interested in what I've got going on and is there to help. She gave the correct amount of guidance advice and nurturing that I needed in a time where I felt I was at a breaking point. She answers ALL of my questions without hesitation. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a professional who truly cares.

Dr. Draughon is my absolute FAVORITE psychiatrist,& I've hada good amount of doctors. She's compassionate about helping me w/ every issue while taking the time to sit down & talk to me about deeper issues that I haven't been comfortable expressing to any of the other previous doctors. Expressing my emotions/problems to others has always been VERY difficult for me but her nonjudgement spirit is something that a lot of people don't sincerely have. She's a beautiful blessing from God. -Leah Gray.

Dr. Draughon is a FANTASIC doctor. She has taken the time and effort to help our family. She explains medications and treatments. Caring for a family member with a mental illness is extremely stressful and scary and we are grateful that Dr. Draughon has become a member of team in the care of our son.
