He was so nice and empathetic and listened to what I had to say. He made recommendations and asked what I thought, which made me feel like I had a say in my care too and that is so great andimportant to me. I found my new psych. I am very pleased. Great guy!

I booked an appointment with Dr. Airuehia in hopes of finding a new psychiatrist. The previous doctor that I was coming from was an overall bad experience and he was the exact opposite. He is very friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable.As soon as I finished filling out the forms for first-time patients, I was called right in. The office is beautiful and the staff is all very friendly and professional. I have been a patient to two previous psychiatrists, and Dr. Airuehia is by far the best.
