I have been to Dr Forgason for a couple of years, I have found her helpful, and understanding. I have come on and off different drugs in an attempt to manage an insane amount of energy associated with ADD, when everyone in my family got cancer I wanted and I got help with anxiety, the key for me is to come off after Im better. Is coming off mind altering prescriptions hard? Yes it's 72 hours of emotional hell. Is it worth it for me? Yes, I can get so lost in my lows that I feel non human.

Fabulous doctor. Very understanding and nonjudgmental. I would recommend Dr. Forgason to others. In regard to other reviewers, don't go see an MD if you are not open to prescriptions or plan on taking them correctly. There are plently of psychologists out there you can see (as opposed to psychiatrists) if you are unopen to trying medication.

I too have seen Dr. Forgason for anxiety disorder, and ended up on "addicting" drugs because NOTHING ELSE WORKED without significant side effects.

Pros: caring, professional

Cons: none

Has helped me greatly. I've known her for many years, will talk to me and explain the "whys" of her decision making.. Does get upset if I'm doing something self-destructive. Have inadvertantly known of her "firing" a couple of patients for professional reasons, e.g. not taking meds as prescribed/abusing prescriptions. Have not personally had that problem, so we get along well.

Dr. Forgason is a nice person and I'm sure she means well, but she is a very dangerous type of doctor. I went to see her about some moderate anxiety related to a stressful work situation and ended up on numerous medications, two of which are incredibly addictive. I expressed my concern about these meds a few times and stated that I wanted to get off of them, but I was met with a brush off like "what's the rush?" or "ah, you can just stop taking them whenever you feel like it." The truth is that the process of getting of the benzodiazepines that she hands out like a Pez dispenser has been by far the most horrific experience of my life and I am now under the care of multiple doctors to the tune of thousands of dollars to get through this process. I would have NEVER taken her advice had I known what this would be like.

I must take the ultimate responsibility for what I put in my body, but it is very easy to trust a doctor when they prescribe medication and it is reasonable to expect that they are providing you with accurate advice. Dr. Forgason seems to have only one solution - more meds. If you want a very temporary solution to your problems that will come back and plague you 1,000 times as hard, then go see this doctor. If you want to really address your issues and find healthy, long-term solutions to help you build a better life, take responsibility for yourself and by all means go see someone else!

I have known Dr. Forgason for many years and have found her to be warm and welcoming, highly professional, and collaborative in nature. She's compassionate and caring, combining psychopharmacology and therapy. I send my "crazy" friends to her too!

Dr Forgason has helped me on and off for so many years (since about 1993). Her professionalism, her gentleness, her directness, her integrity and dependability, and her knowledge of medications makes for an invaluable partner in handling life's challenges in a very safe space. I have always felt as if I could share anything with her. I was so lucky to have found her, and I always recommend her to my friends that need help.

Judy is an excellent psychiatrist. She is very caring and knowledgeable and combines medication with counseling. She really cares about her patients. She is ALWAYS on time and ALWAYS caring. She also returns calls and goes the extra mile. I highly recommend her!!! I also know that a woman is much more empathetic and understanding when it comes to emotional issues. Judy's patients are treated as human beings not as a number.

I've known the kind doctor for many years and she has never steered me wrong.

Ask her about her specials. They're delicious.
