Patient Comments (5)

After a long, rotating history of providers, Rhiannon is a breath of fresh air. I know that being a great psychiatrist has got to be very challenging. Rhiannon rises to that challenge. I’ve never felt more like a real person in anyone’s care. She listens and connects. If you are fortunate enough to...more

I truly miss seeing Rhiannon. Every appointment meant progress. The practice she left has me all messed up already. I'm forced to find a new facility all over again.

I'm so sorry Dave that you haven't been able to find a good fit for your needs. For what its worth, going in to your appointment with a clear idea description of your symptoms (written down if need be) can help ensure that your experience is heard. Specific symptoms to focus on might be: sleep, appetite, energy levels, motivation, mood quality and pattern, anxiety and what triggers it, any thought issues, like paranoia, psychosis, concentration, and memory. You are your best advocate!

I greatly appreciate you taking the time to write down your thoughts. It is really helpful for me to hear what I am doing right (and not so right), so that I can continue to improve my own practices. I'm grateful to have had the chance to work with you and wish you all the best on your journey

She improved my quality of life after just one visit. She is extremely intelligent and approachable. She made more of an impact in her first visit with me than my previous doctor did after seeing him for over 6 years.

I always aim to have my client/provider relationship be a collaborative one, so what gains we made in your recovery, know that you also played a huge role in it. Be well.
