I could not rate Dr. Petrie high enough. He has been with me through tough times over the past seven plus years. I have dealt with my issues for more than three decades. Dr. Petrie has been the most skilled, knowledgeable and supportive Psychiatrist I have worked with in all these years. I trust him without reservation. I do recommend him to others as well as recommending the Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital.
