Dr. Sapp is a wonderful doctor who takes the time to listen to your needs and concerns. As others have said, he just doesn't write you a prescription and send you on your way after a 5 minute conversation. He isalways running 15-20 minutes behind, but since he takes his time with each patient, I don't mind. I would definitely recommend him!

Dr. Sapp is very sincere and genuinely kind. I also really appreciated that he educated me on the different options of medication I would possibly be on so I felt comfortable taking it! The wait was long but my session endedup being long too without me even noticing because he is so easy to talk to and I genuinely think he really wants to know what he can do to help you!

I have been seeing him, for a year. Was able to email through ZocDoc and he answered my questions, and got me in within 10 days, where I had been told by other Dr's that there would be a 2 monthwait, and they would provide little information on their services. Dr. Sapp listened to my concerns, and was able to help, were other medical professionals had feel short. Very upfront and a pleasant Doctor who shows an interest in his patients needs.

I love Dr. Sapp. Since I’ve been seeing him, my relationships with my family have drastically improved, especially with my mom. Dr. Sapp really gets what I’m saying. Its the questions that he asks that tend to get to the bottomof what is going on, especially during those times when I myself can’t even begin to describe what I’m feeling. Whatever I'm going through, and believe me I've been through some super awkward and embarrassing stuff... Dr Sapp gets where I'm coming from and quickly puts me at ease with funny stories about others who have gone through similar situations.

Been seeing him for years, he spends a lot of time with you and goes above and beyond what other psychiatrists do. Takes the time to know you, assess your needs, recommends multiple treatment options. Like a Psychologist and Psychiatrist in one, but better.

If I lived in another state, I would fly out to see him without a doubt. Very trustworthy and intelligent, paradigm shifted into "unbreakable" within a little over an hour and I've realized how to follow my heart. I'm always soworried about inconveniencing people with my worries, but I don't feel that way way with Dr. Sapp and his amazing staff.

I felt like I could really trust him and made me feel like I was talking to someone I've known for 10 years (not 1 hour )! Ive never liked going to the DR's and now I actually kind of look forward to our next appointment. The atmosphere is really relaxed and pleasant. Also secretary is outstanding and personable (unlike a lot of secretaries). Thanks Dr SAPp with your help my life has been much better!

He's good. It was the most helpful appointment I've had, ever. In the past, going to the doctor was somewhat frustrating because it felt like I wasn't getting through or being heard. Dr. Sapp took the time to actually listen andrespect my personal experience of the symptoms. His insights shined a light on some of the shadowy areas of my condition, leaving me with a new sense of clarity. Much appreciated. I'm really hopeful about this new treatment plan and ready to get back out into the races.

I went through a few years needing to see a psychiatrist and saw 4 during that time. There was quite a bit of adding of diagnoses I didn't have that just made it all more difficult. Dr. Sapp saw and cutthrough the nonsense. Treated me for the right diagnoses and empowered me with responsibility of living my own life. All is well back on track largely because he follows The Hippocratic Oath. I thank him.

Dr. Sapp is a very good listener and really takes his time with his patients. Dr. Sapp switched my medication that I had been on for a while and I feel much better without the drowsy feeling the previous medication gaveme. His receptionist is welcoming and his office is comfortable and well decorated. Highly recommended psychiatrist!

Dr. Sapp is extremely busy as are all other psychs. I believe he is a good doctor but I have not been successful in getting him to return messages regarding my medication and the wait time that I experienced at hisoffice doesn't make me eager to reschedule. Overall- good doctor. He actually listens instead of just throwing a script at you, however, I don't think I'll be making a second appointment.

I liked the fact that he tried to help me instead of just feeding me the latest drugs. My family MD had me on the latest drug the pharmaceutical companies put out because that is what the reps are pushing. Dr.Sapp felt that they were a bit to much for me and has changed them to a drug that doesn't put me to sleep for ten hours.

Since I was a new patient, I arrived 1/2 hr. early to fill out the paperwork. I finished right at my appointment time and was taken right in. My only concern is that I am fairly hard of hearing and eventhough I told him so, Dr. Sapp speaks in a very quiet voice. I will have to see how our follow up visits go before I can give an informed decision as to whether I am in the right place.
