Dr. M makes sure that I am well and meds are doing what is expected. He listens! And he pushes back with perfect balance so you leave knowing you are on course. He is also accessible and on the rare occasion when you need to speak to him on the phone, he calls you back promptly. I like that he does not seemed swayed to prescribe whatever the pharma-sales companies are pushing and that he knows how they all work so you have options in getting what works best for you.
Dr. Menninger is amazingly present and available to his patients. Unlike many other doctors he puts up no walls between himself and his patients and is not condescending. He speaks plainly and his advice is practical. He not only is knowledgeable about medications, but also prescribes helpful adjunctive types of therapy. He has experience with and is comfortable treating a wide variety of problems / diagnoses, in contrast to many psychiatrists who tend to see and treat every case as depression, anxiety, bipolar or ADD. It is a great anxiety reliever to know he will return calls and emails promptly and because of this availability he has made me feel much less alone with my issues.
I started seeing Dr. Menninger many years ago. Since that time he has become my "family" Psyciatrist. He has helped all of us a great deal with his knowledge and compassion. I HIGHLY recomend him to anyone. He has made a huge difference in my life and played a very big part in getting me to where I am now!
I say, "ditto" to the other two comments as of 6-24-2011...and, I add that Dr. Brent Menninger actually truly cares about his patients--some doctors grow complacent just a year or two out of residency--not Dr. Menninger. He recognizes differences and individuality but knows all about the commonalities within mental illnesses. He learned along with me with patience, understanding, and an open mind. That is invaluable in any doctor--but particularly a psychiatrist! I thank him for his enduring influence. from: l997-99
