13/07/13 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr Cassidy in regards to being trans male. She helped me through the first few steps to get me in the right direction. The only reason I had stopped going was because of work obligations. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for someone that cares about their patients.  Respond

29/05/13 5 5 5 5 I started seeing Dr Cassidy about 8 months ago. I had been unable to find a Psyciatrist in the Valley area whom I trusted and felt comfortable with, since my move back to the Valley from Ottawa. I have struggled with Chronic Depression & Anxiety for half of my life. This lady is, in my opinion, an awesome Psychiatrist. Dr Cassidy has me on the right track to gaining back the happiness in life which has been missing for many years. She is kind, very knowledgeable, and is a master of the medication/therapy combination required to fight mental health issues. I cannot thank her enough for her sincere interest and understanding. Anyone seeking help with Mental Health issues will flourish with this Doctor's wealth of knowledge as long as they themselves are honest, sincere, and are trult wanting to improve or beat their Mental Health issues. Kudoos to Dr Beverley Cassidy. DF - New Minas, NS  Respond

02/05/13 4 5 2 2 I went to this lady a few times and then decided not to go back. I went for depression following my job loss. I found her uninterested in my point of view on my issues. She told me to leave my boyfriend. She was unresponsive when I brought up my recovery in a 12 step program. She made it clear that I would be billed over $100 dollars if I did not cancel an appointment on time. She was professional in manner, but cold and unresponsive. She gave my recommendations that my mother could have done. She didn't try to see who I really was.  Respond

09/04/13 5 5 5 5 Not to be to snarky to those with a negative opinion of Dr. Cassidy but, I am sincerely glad you are seeking treatment. Your viewpoint is your own but I must strongly disagree. I have been seeing Dr.Cassidy for a number of years and I am not only better but I am changing and growing with her advice and medications. If she had been all fluffy and all over me in the first few visits I'd have walked out the door. She waited for me to work at trusting her and letting my guard down. She has always returned my calls, worked appointments to my schedule and has gone out of her way to see me through other physical illnesses I am battling. She has called me at home to see how I am doing andI have never had that courtesy from any doctor of any kind. She is fnny, brilliant, patient,kind and lets me be free to be who I really am in front of her. I couldn't manage without her and I appreciate her more than she knows...Thanks Dr. Cassidy.  Respond

31/10/12 1 1 1 1 Sorry, but I must strongly disagree with the others. I saw her approx 5 times and she took absolutely no interest in me. She would make a few superficial recommendations advising me to join this or that group but made me feel that my depression was my own fault. I have had chronic depression since I was a child. I always felt belittled and very insigificant when I left her office and each visit was shorter - just a medication check really and her records were never accurate. I would never recommend her to anyone! A friend of mine sees her and says she likes her because she is cold and impersonal!! Okay, if you like cold and impersonal, she is waiting with open arms!  Respond

18/06/12 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr Cassidy for 4 months now and the change in my anxiety is remarkable. I still have a ways to go but Dr cassidy's help is unmeasurable. With a combination of drugs and cognitive therapy I know I am getting better. I encourage anyone that is experiencing a mental illness to get help and don't stop trying until you find the right help. Mental illness is not something to be ashamed of,it does not mean you are weak. Its an illness and should be treated as such. Dr Cassidy is so knowledgeable and I thank my family doctor for referring me!  Respond

22/02/12 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Cassidy's for many years. My family doctor referred me to her and I'm so glad she did!! She has been treating me for generalized anxiety,panic disorder and obsessive thinking. Her compassion,professionalism,knowledge of medications and behavioral, cognitive therapies have made a big difference in the quality of my daily life! I am so thankful for her dedication and support. I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone experiencing mental health issues. Dr. Cassidy along with supportive family members and friends have allowed me to feel much less ashamed of seeking help. She has helped me realize mental illness isn't something I caused and most just as importantly need not define who I am. Thank you Dr. Cassidy. We are fortunate to have her services here in the Annapolis Valley!  Respond

06/10/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Cassidy is a very thoughtful and knowledgeable psychiatrist. I have been seeing Dr. Cassidy for approximately 5 years on and off. She is very easy to talk to and she is very knowledgeable of medications. I have suffered from depression all my adult life and maybe even longer. I am 48 years old now. I have been on many medications that worked for a time but either had too many side effects or didn't continue to work. This past year I crashed really bad and she prescribed a new medication for me and I can honestly say that I haven't felt this good in years. I would encourage anyone who may be suffering from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, etc. to go see a psychiatrist. Myself I recommend Dr. Cassidy as she is very caring and you can tell that she really cares and is very interested in you as a person.  Respond

13/07/09 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Cassidy as needed for the past few years. She has been an extraordinary help in my battle with depression, always compassionate but never cloying. She listens carefully and helps me to recognize that it's not my 'fault' that I'm depressed and that I shouldn't feel guilty. She is quick to return calls and has fit me into her schedule when there have been particularly bad situations. I like and respect and trust her, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs help for psychiatric/emotional illness.  Respond
