Both of my now grown children saw Dr. Grant for intensive therapy. The treatments were not effective for them. This mind you, was in the early 1990's. The medications were not effective and made them sick most of the time. Issues did not improve and as time went by, I could see Dr. Grant simply was not equipped to help my children. Perhaps a referral from Dr. Grant to a Dr. that worked exclusively with children would have been a better thing, but that did not happen. I finally had to just stop all meds and remove them from seeing Dr. Grant. They tell you to get your children help when they are young if they need it and it will help them to learn coping skills. Well, what it did is make the children angrier. One is now a felon and the other a very angry man. They were very young when treatment began and they are now 30 and 31 years of age. They cannot bear to hear Dr. Grant's name. Too little, too late. I would not ever recommend Dr. Grant to anyone. Please, take your children elsewhere.

My husband was going to this clinic for about 4 years, and he was constantly seeing different people. After several years of going here, the nurse practitioners would call and leave voicemails calling him by his last name. Every time you

In my opinion when a drug like Cymbalta is left in the hands of a doctor like Cathel P. Grant, patients could be endangered. It is my experience, and therefore my opinion that Dr. Grant ignores reported side affects' symptoms such as the drastically unusual and even violent behavior in a patient on this drug towards their spouse of 25 years. Does Dr. Grant investigate the side effects of Cymbalta and prescribe something else? In my experience and opinion the answer is No, instead, Dr. Grant advises the patient to divorce their supportive, loving husband. It is my opinion that this is not responsible medicine, this is total disregard for a patient's welfare and his medical practice license should be revoked for the safety of the public. In my recent compliant action to the Texas Medical Board. Dr. Grant claimed he met standards of care and treatment and obtained informed consent for medication prescribed with the indication of possible side effects, he additionally claimed reasonable care and claimed was attentive to any reported side effects. In my opinion there is one opinion to Dr. Grant??s claims you must be in the room to get and to give informed consent for medication. It is my experience that Dr. Grant never explained any medication, and by no means went through any side effect with me or my wife; in fact there was absolutely no side effects discussion in any way shape or form. It is my experience he refused listening to the side effects of the drug Cymbalta on my wife. If I said one word about her both Grant and his nurse Sharon Walters started yelling HIPPA and flat refused to listen to anything I had to say. In my opinion this is totally contrary to the statement he gave the Texas Medical Board. In my experience this was contrary to Elli Lilly??s instructions on the drug on Cymbalta too, when the side effects I was trying to tell both Grant and Walters about, my wife was to be removed from the Cymbalta, according to the companies literature. It is my opinion that Grant purposely ignored or had no knowledge of the drug manufacture??s recommendation of the drug he was prescribing, resulting in an attack on my person of my wife of 25 years, and a resulting injury which I do not know I will ever get over. http://www.inmyopinionfreespeech.us/

I loved this office! They got me in quick and did not rip me off like two other psychiatry offices did. Those offices charged me $100 per visit and made me go every month. Here it is $60 with 6 month visits if I'm doing OK The treatment was friendly and reasonable with nice nurse practioners. Dr Grant is also easy to talk to. Would definitely recommend.

Nice staff and VERY friendly doctor, who cared about what the treatment was going to cost me. I got an appointment in one week and felt better within two weeks. I have referred two of my friends.

I have met Dr. Grant (like his calm manner) and have also been treated by his staff for some time. Yes, this is not a counseling office, it is a psychiartrist's office and you can get medications and advice in finding a counselor. I tried

Cathal came over from the UK and established a thriving business. One problem w/ Cathal is most people only see him once. Then they get shuffled off to someone else to sling the meds. Another problem, they very seldom are on time. This is because he has a tremendous amount of patients, but he doesn't increase his staff. Problem 3: Whenever (and I mean whenever) you call his office, you'll be put on hold. Number 4: Lack of organizational skills. They can't remember what prescriptions they wrote for whom or when they wrote them.
Finally let me mention insurance. Unbeknownst to me (Or Cathal for that matter), my copay increased by five dollars in 2009. I should have known but I admit I don't stay on top of these things like I should. Approximately two months later I get a seething letter that I have 30 days to fess up the five bucks or it goes to the collection agency.
I suspect all of these trouble spots may be because Cathal is thrifty, but I'm just guessing. Or maybe he just doesn't know any better.
You don't have to be a good doctor in order to be a successful doctor. Cathal is proof of that.
