Hear What Our Patients Have To Say

I have to say that I've experienced the best services from Patterns Psychiatry. Miss Ezema shows her most concern for you by truly listening and gives you sincere feedback. She has the most soothing soft voice, and at the same time she is very professional. With all sincerity I consider her the best I've had in many year of needing medicine and someone that truly listens to your needs.

I always look forward to my appointments with Dr. Abraham. We talk about the medicine but she also checks on my mental health period and I really appreciate her for that. She remembers things from our previous sessions that she checks on and shows she’s invested in her patients.
Amanda H.
Nurse practitioner Chigane Abraham has been AMAZING. I have been seeing her for almost 8 months now and every visit with her has been pleasant. I have not had good experiences with psychiatrist but she changed my outlook on things. She is extremely patient, understanding, and welcoming. I’m so thankful I stumbled upon Patterns Psychiatry to take care of all my mental health needs. <3

I’ve been doing telemedicine visits with Nkechi and I’m very satisfied so far. She is very attentive and seems extremely knowledgeable. I am growing more comfortable with her with each visit. I’m very grateful.
Trinity I.
I actually felt listen to unlike other psychiatrist that I’ve ever been to. She took the time to read my bio and all of the information that I left on their website, which was a lot, I really appreciated that she took my time and feelings during our meeting seriously. I’m looking forward for my next appointment.

The people at Patterns Psychiatry are always accommodating and helpful.  It was easy to begin there as a new patient, I always get multiple appointment reminders, and they are very easy to contact if necessary outside of appointment times.  Thank you guys!!
Rachel S.
I started seeing Chigane Abraham back in January. I’ve had experiences in the past with mental health professionals that felt very shallow and they prescribed medicine without even getting to know me. Chigane is AMAZING! I feel so happy to have found a psychiatrist that truly cares about me as an individual. Through working with her, I’ve gotten on a medication that helps ease my anxiety and I’m feeling so much happier and healthier since seeing her. I highly highly recommend!!!!!
Marilyn B.
I’m very happy with the staff and Dr. A at Patterns Psychiatry. They are very quick to respond to emails even after hours and on weekends. Wonderful ladies!
Ashlynn B.
I have struggled finding a decent psychiatrist that actually cares about their patients and doesn’t just view them as another payday but as a person. I have felt comfortable with Patterns’ team since my first visit. I highly recommend seeing them if you have dealt with the struggles I have.
Ryan C.
The doctor is very sweet and helpful to my mother.  She's trying to take good  care of her and keep her safe with her meds.  She really cares!
