Verified Patient Reviews
He was fine.
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.
Excellent experience. Dr Sapp has the ability to put you at ease and make you feel like a person rather than patient. I would highly recommend him.
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 bottom of 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.
I thought Dr. Sapp and his receptionist were wonderful, they treated me with such respect and kindness.
He took the time to open a good rapport during my first visit. I finally felt more like a patient than a "customer" Listened to my issues and explained treatment plan, no rush. Scheduled a follow up or to contact if I have any issues. Thank you for your time..the most valuable we can give.
Great doctor have another appointment with him.
Dr. Sapp is extremely caring and spends the fime to get to know the patients need. I am thoroughly impressed by his care.
Will make another appointment. Am extremely satisfied.
No nonsense management and he listens to what you say and responds very helpfully and very reasonably.
I would recommend Dr. Sapp to anyone needing the uses of am experienced, caring, and compassionate person. 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!
Dr. Sapp is professional, personable, and has a good sense of humor. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a kind, understanding, straightforward MD for your mental health needs.
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 so worried about inconveniencing people with my worries, but I don't feel that way way with Dr. Sapp and his amazing staff.
Great guy, very easy to talk to.
I am genuinely impressed by Dr. Sapp's ability to pull out important keys of truth in a way that is palatable. He took some extra time in order to be there and help me figure out some questions that I've been having, and map out a plan. Very grateful.
Doctor was very friendly and knowledgeable. It didn't feel like he was trying to "push" medication onto me. The receptionist was very nice and efficient. I will be going to this doctor for my follow up. Office was clean and comfortable.
Dr. Sapp was extremely helpful. His tranquil nature and patience were very calming. He has the gift of comfort and knows what to say to calm you down if you are having difficulty, and is present and attentive. Best doctor I have ever encountered and I highly recommend him.
I love Dr. Sapp.. Very understanding, knowledgeable, and friendly.
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 and respect 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.
With a reasonable real life approach to my problem, Dr. Sapp has been instrumental in making my life today far happier than a few years ago. He has a personality, uncommonly found in his profession.
He seemed to truly care about me, and talked through my issues
He is fantastic! Talks to you like a human being. Will be going to him as long as he practices! I recommend him to anyone.
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 cut through 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.
Solid, knowledgeable, caring, addressed needs and concerns. Left looking forward to follow up.
Just a simply amazing, caring, compassionate physician.
love my new doctor! He was very helpful, and he treated me with dignity. He was very personable. I was really happy with my first visit.
Very professional and compassionate Dr. I was offered and explained benefits of different kinds of treatments. Staff was very friendly. I would definitely recommend.
Well organized and clinically astute.
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 his office 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.
He was very nice and new what I was talking about.
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.
Very professional, very insightful
The wait time was too long. I realize doctors can get behind schedule, but I can't afford an hour delay in the middle of a business day.
Seems like a solid professional, good understanding of medications. Thank you for your time, Jon
I liked him he was very proffesional..
Excellent Dr. I was nervous went I went in but my worries were quickly dissipated as soon as I entered his office. He was welcoming, down to earth and very helpful.
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 even though 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.
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 gave me. His receptionist is welcoming and his office is comfortable and well decorated. Highly recommended psychiatrist!
Dr Sapp is a very caring and knowledgeable psychiatrist, and his office assistant is very friendly and efficient. Very down to earth professionals that make you feel comfortable from the moment you meet them both. Highly recommended...
Mr Sapp looks to me like a very good understanding person he hears what you have to say he dosnt jugde you he helps you i think he will be my doctor for a very long time to come
He was very nice and made me feel at ease.
Very much trustwerthy. Very good at what he is doing.Very knowledgeable. Easy to talk to about my past. May have a new way to treat me ?

Dr. Sapp was great! I like most guys, feel uneasy talking to folks about issues but he put me at ease. Going back!
I felt at ease right away. Dr. Sapp listened to my situation and helped me plan a course of action for treatment.
Dr. Sapp has a very relaxing and professional demeanor.
He was very helpful and made me feel at ease!
ZocDoc double booked my appointment which is why I had to wait so long.
He seems very knowledgable. It was a quick and painless visit. I will definitely see him again!
He was the most personable and knowledgable doctor that I have seen in a very long time. I have been treated for adhd for 35 years-that is a long time.
