Ratings for Dr. Claude A. Curran
He saved me from suicide and he helps with counseling and medication. Ive never done drugs and hes never pushed anything on me. I had such bad anxiety i didnt leave my house for a year and a half and counselor at my school (brown university) recommended him when i was going to drop out because i couldn't go to school let alone do the simplest things like go walmart or a coffee shop.
Dr. Curran has been a great Dr. for me. He is very caring and extremely knowledgeable and there should be more Drs. like him. He is very kind and thorough. Dr. Curran is the best Dr. I have ever seen. I believe he would save the world if he could. Dr. Curran has spent more time with me than he really had to. Thank you Dr. Curran you are awesome.
Dr. Curran has been a great Dr. for me and I disagree with comments that he is more interested in fighting a cause than dealing with his patients problems...He's very caring and extremely knowledgeable and there should be more Dr's like Claude Curran, MD. Thank you Dr. Curran for all that you do..Peter M. Aubut
I would say that Dr. Curran years ago was astute and caring but over the last years I believe he is more focused on ARGUING A CAUSE as opposed to honing in on the client's problems. His office staff is devoid of professionalism...not affording the client coming in to feel welcome, at ease or even human...its only HOW ARE YOU GONNA PAY FOR THIS ATTITUTE...There are other psychiatrists that will see clients promptly, are not burnt out, will give samples...you can ask also for them, and do not have a façade..
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
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.
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.
