One of the few psychiatrist who seems to care about the whole person and not just doling out medicine 'to keep thepthe 'patient happy and quiet.' Encourages questions or challenges. A doctor with past caring perspectives with pesenet dax knowledge and skills. I have recommended him twice.

Dr. Petrie has been my doctor for years. He has kept me alive. He's a great asset for the medical center.
Patient | April 26, 2016

Patient has frontal /Temporal Dementia and Dr. Petrie used to speak to the family separate from Patient so they can express concerns freely. This has not been done the last 2-3 visits. Emails had occurred between the last 2 visits about also taking care of my mother, the main caregiver and Dr. Petrie agreed that this was necessary, but never mentioned it at the visit. She now feels slided and not heard.
Patient | April 25, 2016
