Ratings for Dr. John R. Dages
Friendly, relatable, not some detached talking head . I have known John professionally for many years. I am not a therapist but frequently have needed to refer people to a quality therapist and John is the right guy. He approaches therapy as a positive experience to improve, versus some drudgery to endure. Plus, he is very well credentialed, unlike some folks who have just a little training and wing it. I would suggest him to those who do not want to get stuck with either some boring shrink or someone who is friendly but doesn't have the training to guide people successfully.
A very kind and professional man. Highly recommend this doctor. He cleared me psychiatrically for my bariatric surgery and was amazing. Very warm. Smart and funny. He does not take himself to seriously but obviously knows his stuff. I left his office feeling great!
Dr. Dages is great. He helped me with my eating disorder. He is kind but pushed me. I have had many counselors, but Dr. Dages seemed to have touched a nerve, and I am doing better! I've recommended 5 of my friends talk to him. He is hard to get an appointment with though, because f his schedule.
Dr. Dages saved my life. He was relentless in coordinating care with my other doctors. He is by far the best substance abuse therapist I have ever had. I've seen him for 2 years and have been sober since. Outstanding skills and very caring.
Dr. Dages helped me on my weight surgery evaluation. I was nervous about meeting him, and then I got in his office and got more nervous, seeing all his degrees and that he has a Ph.D. He quickly told me not to worry about "that wall" of his diplomas and told me me that he really didn't know how to type. I started crying and he stopped typing, and we did my introview. He cleared me for my surgery and told me I would now have see the surgeon. I loved talking to Dr. Dages. In fact, we scheduled another appointment. Thank you Ozark Center for hiring this man
I am a physician in Missouri. My interactions with Dr. Dages regarding a complicated eating disorders patient have been extremely professional. Rural areas of Missouri could use more Ph.D. - level trained psychologists like him. Very impressed. Well done Freeman Hospital for recruiting such an amazing and talented psychologist.
