Dr. Darren Cowley has been my psychiatrist for approximately 6 months and he is absolutely fantastic. I should know as I have been seeing psychiatrists on a regular basis since I was 24 and I am now 57. He is very knowledgeable about psychotropic medications, works tirelessly, has a sense of humour, highly empathetic, available 24/7 in times of REAL need, and I trust him with my life. Somebody has written he is money-hungry, where as far as I am concerned, someone who is on a disability pension, this couldn't be further than the truth. Out of all the psychiatrists I have seen since the age of 24, most on Wickham Terrace, Dr. Cowley has to be the most knowledgeable and up to date, helped by his youthfulness as so many psychiatrists are at retirement age. This does not make them less effective, just not as knowledgeable about psychiatry in the 21st Century. Dr. Darren Cowley is in great demand as a psychiatric consultant in the PUBLIC system as well as Private, so very busy, and I think he needs to be cloned. I am very grateful to be in the hands of such a lovely and gentle psychiatrist. Carol L.P. da Costa-Roque

Seemed to be a frustrated surgeon who didn't get the traineeship he wanted so ended up in psych instead -it happens more than you think. Was informing patients AFTER their appointment that his fee had increased and charging them the higher amount for that visit. Eucalyptus tissues?!? still there the 2nd (and final) appointment despite informing him they were not suitable for wiping away tears, as they burn the eyes. Limited in his clinical skills, he wanted to diagnose me as bipolar despite the fact that I fit none of the DSM-IV diagnostic criteria, then tried to get me to agree by suggesting I was cyclothymic - medical Latin term for bipolar.
