Dr. Willison is straight forward, yet very compassionate. He listened to our concerns, and was able to SEE our son and provide hope.

I went through some pretty rough stuff throughout the holiday season and Dr Willison was always exceedingly patient and empathetic, even when I was not. More importantly, when I would try to rush the process, he was always calm but insistent that we just need to be patient. He knows his stuff and I would highly recommend him.

As my first experience with a psychiatrist, my experience with Dr. David Willison felt very professional and educational, without feeling cold or overly formal. Our conversations quickly got to the root of my problem and we started working on real solutions from the very first appointment. Although I have't attended that many sessions, I foresee any problems going forward.

Dr Willison really took the time to get to know me, not just my symptoms. I cross-examine psychiatrists for a living and he is among a select few I would trust with my mental health.

Dr Willison has knowledge and experience. My autistic adult son has been his patient since April 2019. Early this year my son was having medication issues and his psychiatrist wasn't able to stabilize him. We needed a new doctor who was knowledgeable in medication therapy for my son's diagnosis. I was given a referral for Dr Willison. Fortunately, I was able to quickly arrange an appointment with Dr Willison. Dr Willison changed his medication and the results have been positive. My son is doing much better under his care. I highly recommend Dr Willison as your Psychiatrist and for all who need medication.

Doctor Willison is the best psychiatrist out there! He is calm in even the most stressful of situations and he is always looking out for the best interest of his patients’. I went through the hardest time of my life and he was there every step of the way helping me to get through it. He even helped my mother stay calm as well. He never pushes a medication on patient and listens to the patient if they decide they want to be off the medication. He allows patients to text him if they need anything which was great cause sometimes I did not always want to go to my parents. In the end he really was a large part of helping me get to a good place in my life and I think he is the best psychiatrist out there!

He is by far one of the most knowledgeable and empathetic psychiatrists out there. He’s a life saver (literally) when he was counseling my son. I thank him every time I see him and I highly recommend him.
