What patients are saying

I am a musician who has suffered immense anxiety for years and has greatly impacted my ability to perform. Dr. Bushong is not just a psychiatrist-he cares. He is not only an addiction specialist but an expert at talk therapy, leaving a door open for you to talk freely. Visiting Dr. Boshong is one of the greatest investments I have ever made in my life.

Dr. Bushong has been a vital part of my teen's therapy. We were referred to him by others in the field that called him "the best." He has never jumped toward medications, and has had a caring focus on psychotherapy. Every kid is different, but mine has really been able to open up with Dr. Bushong's manner of therapy, and my child has made dramatic improvements. We are very blessed to have him for a doctor.

I give Dr. B. credit with saving my life!! He is very professional, very caring. A fabulous doctor!

We contacted 'Dr.B' in a moment of serious crisis with our teenage son and were impressed with his evaluation and ability to work with both our son (on some very challenging issues) as well as with us as we tried to sort out how best to help our son. Contrary to what others have written, we liked his emphasis on psychotherapy and did not feel as though he "pushed" medication treatment over 'talk therapy'. We continue to see Dr. B and are extremely satisfied with his care

There are so many doctors coming to quick conclusions and ready to write prescriptions. If you are lucky enough to be seeing or have your kid seeing Dr. Bushong, be patient, you are not there to have a cavity filled or a bone set; this is serious stuff taken seriously. Dr. Bushong re-wired me and allowed me to be happy, productive and positive.
