Dr. Moyer is always on time which I really appreciate. I have been seeing him every three months for the pasteight years. He always updates my medical history which, I think, is very important when you are taking antidepressants and other prescriptions from my primary care physician. If a new drug is introduced to me Dr. Moyer always tells me the possible side effects and how it interacts with the other drugs. I would have switched psychiatrists a long time ago if I didn't like him!! I always look forward to my visits with him.

Very kind, caring Doc. Listens well—he really hears you when you talk, ironically I find this rare in the profession. Downto earth, approachable and all around good fellow; definitely knowledgable, I learned a few things I wasn’t aware of and now have clearer vision of what my treatment plan should be. The way he explains his professional opinion is very accessible, that is you don’t have to struggle to understand what he’s trying to say (this has often been a pain point for me in the past). I walked in expecting to be judged and was pleasantly surprised— I had the complete opposite experience. Will definitely be sticking with Dr. Moyer, and I recommend you go with him too.

Dr. Moyer is always exactly on time which I really appreciate. He always reviews my medications and talks about the possible side effects. He is always concerned about my sobriety, what I am doing to maintain it and what activities I am currently engaged in. I have been seeing him for at least six years and would never consider going elsewhere. I really enjoy our visits. Kathy

This Dr is distracted by his phone continually throughout both appointments I had with him. He doesn’t seem to have time to talk or leave room for questions. This appointment was literally 4 minutes long before he had written a prescription for a new med and made my follow up appointment.

This doctor had the EQ of a toothbrush. He was dismissive when he asked what I’m experiencing and ended up prattling off symptoms to check boxes. He might have looked up from his computer while treating me a total of three times.

I have been seeing Dr. Moyer every three months for the past six years. He is very professional and always treats me with the upmost respect. I trust his knowledge of medications, side effects, dosage, etc. I am a recovering alcoholic and he always takes the time to talk to me about the importance of working with my sponsor, going to meetings, and service work. Every visit he wants an update on my family and the relationships I have with each family member. I would never see another psychiatrist! I always look forward to my visits with him.

Just had my first initial appointment with Dr. Moyer. So grateful to have found Dr. Moyer after my previous doctor abandoning his patients with no notice. He was understanding of my existing history and has given me a sense of calmness with this transition as his new patient. I am looking forward to my ongoing treatment with Dr. Moyer. I highly recommend him if you are feeling stuck (like I was) with finding the right doctor. Thanks Dr. Moyer!

I meet with Dr. Moyer every few months and it is always a pleasant experience. Scheduling is easy and I don't wait more than a few minutes to be seen. Although our visits are brief, Dr. Moyer listens to my concerns and we usually share nice stories. He is also good about returning phone calls and he once helped me with an insurance issue I had that I really appreciated. I would recommend this physician.

I am glad I made my appointment with Dr. Moyer. He took time to listen to my concerns, which I really appreciated. I brought in several research articles as well as my past medical history and he took time to look at all of the research I have done regarding addressing my condition. He shared his thoughts with me and explained the reasoning behind the thoughts as well. I am overall pretty happy with my first appointment and look forward to working with him on my treatment.

After a series of psychiatrists who seemed like they could care less about my well-being, Dr Moyer was a breath of fresh air. He took time to answer all of my questions about medication, diagnoses, and treatment options. He also asked for my opinion instead of just labeling me with a disorder and handing me an RX. It really felt like I was working with Dr Moyer to tackle my illness because he valued my input. I'm excited to see what I can accomplish with the help of Dr Moyer.
