Awesome, very knowledgeable. I'm a combat veteran and good to know he has worked with many others like me. He knew exactly what is messing with me and started me on a treatment. Office is set up weird but it isa satellite office so keep that in mind. Peace and God Bless.

Admin is very difficult to understand and my follow ups were never more than 5 minutes. 10 minutes if I were lucky. Always very brief and had always asked me what medication I was on. Felt very impersonal. ** Additionally, ina span of 5 months, Chisty's follow up visit prices went up literally 400% ***. I was an old patient with an increasing charge. I was NOT forewarned and I looked at everything I signed and submitted to admin stating nothing. Was told of the increasing charges AFTER my visits. I had terrible withdrawal symptoms until I was able to find a GOOD psychiatrist who wouldn't do this to their patients. Very dissatisfied.

Increased my follow up charge without warning (I was a self-pay patient, no insurance). Each appointment was 5 minutes, sometimes 2 minutes. Felt very impersonal. Admin is terrible. Can barely understand them and you must be on top of them to send your medication to the pharmacy.

Ive been seen for the past 15 years for depression and Dr. Chisty is the most knowledgeable and caring Dr I have ever had. I never want to move again because I never want a different doctor.

I saw dr chisty several times but he never seemed to remember me. There were times I waited over an hour and others within 30 minutes. He seemed knowledgable in his field and even seems to want to extend compassion, butI wouldn't see him as a permenent doctor if I have a better option. The reason for this is based on my personal comfort level and experience. For another he may be the perfect doctor.

There was very little interaction about the situation I was dealing with. Mostly quoted statistics and seemed to be reluctant to diagnose or work with me with other treatment options for fear he would not be able to manage the medicationproperly and that I would abuse the medication. I felt as though he thought I was just looking for narcotics. He gave me a medication that will not have any affect other than possible nausea for 4 weeks just in time for a follow up visit which no one bothered to schedule. They didn't have any recommendations for psycologists that might be able to rule out or diagnose the problem. They also perform a test which they have little information to offer including the price of the procedure. Overall I left feeling depressed and like there is no hope to feel better without many more visits from other professionals.

My 14 year old daughter and I went to see him. The wait was a bit long, but I thought he had a number of useful and informative things to say to my daughter that helped both of us to understandher better. He also gave her some tools to help with various issues she's having. Being a long-time pro at therapy, I was impressed by his suggestions and believe they will help my daughter quite a bit. He even went so far as to show us videos to help explain things more clearly. I can't say anything about the pricing, as there was an issue that didn't permit me to make my payment right then. Dr. Chisty never used offensive language.

In fact, I held the doctor up by being a few minutes late but he had no problem with it. There was so wait, excellent advice, and a caring, thorough, and friendly doctor. I hold Dr, Christy in high esteem.

May be knowledgeable but I didn't think he spent enough time and I felt like the amount billed to my insurance was too much for what he did.

Dr. took 45 mins to see us, spent 5 minutes asking what medicines and dosage we were on (he didn't seem to know what he had told us on prevoius visits) asked us what we thought we should do about themedicine (isn't that what we're paying him to figure out?) After 5 minutes we were out the door with a prescription. To boot, the receptionist took more time than the entire dr visit just to figure out the copay!

My regular doctor became terminally ill overnight and had to close her practice. I was without a doctor and spent a couple weeks on the phone trying to locate one that would take me ASAP. ZocDoc popped up on my screenand I gave it a try and that's how I found Dr. Chisty. He took me within a week and I'm extremely pleased. Thank you.

i felt it was fair to good, felt rushed but thats typical for psychiatry. He listened and gave me some good education on depression/anxiety, just felt he made some wholesale changes to my meds pretty quickly before getting to know my history, etc

This is the first psychiatrist I've had that made me feel like he wanted to help me instead of just ringing me out for as much money as possible. Very refreshing.

Pretty run-of-the-mill for a psychiatrist: As usual, I had to do part of his job for him and he had his own little prejudices. But again, all psychiatrists are like that. It concerns me a bit that Dr. Chisty so vehementlydisagrees with information I have been given by older and more experienced psychiatrists.
