21/05/14 5 5 5 5 I have seen many Doctors over the years. Dr. Curran is the only MD that treats me like an equal vs someone "with a mental illness." He is a very kind and thorough Doctor. Even though my Insurance dropped him, I pay out of pocket to see him exclusively. I will not see another. JLN

21/01/12 4 1 4 4 The wait is ridiculous. You will wait for 3-4 hours regardless of your appointment. Patients walk in and tend to get seen before people with appts. I like Dr. Curran but I cannot stand the office environment or the lack of professionalism in regards to the wait time. I wait less at the walk in.

16/08/11 1 1 3 4 Dr. Curran himself is a nice guy. However, his office staff is absolutely terrible. They are rude, confused, and quite frankly ignorant. If I could go see Dr. Curran without having to deal with his idiotic office staff I would still be a patient. Some will say he didnt care, but my experience one-to-one with him wasn't bad. Yes I did try many different meds with him, but it ended in me finding one that worked for me. He was also very good about helping me financially. When I lost my job he provided me with samples to help get me by which was very kind of him. Other psychiatrists I have seen barely spent 15 minutes with me. Dr. Curran I felt spent more time with me than he really had to. One major problem however is the wait time. If I scheduled a 2pm appointment I would not get in to see him until 3-4pm and that is no exaggeration. The office and waiting area was run down and a mess as well. As much as I like him I would not recommend his practice unfortunately.

30/11/10 4 3 5 5 I have to agree with my girl on that last comment.I too was a pt. of Dr. Curran for 7 years, I was able, and comfortable enough to ask him anything, as well as answer his question's. I wish I still could go to see him because he knew what was up with me by looking at me!!He is a great Dr. and that's all there is too it, Period! Ms. Dawn Sousa  Respond

15/05/10 2 1 1 4 Dr. Curran used to be on top of things and very thorough some years ago, but he just doesn't care anymore. He's more concerned with keeping his addicts high than looking after his real (ie. psychiatric) patients and making sure their treatments are working. Glad I dumped him for a more capable and responsible Pdoc.  Respond
