"My psychiatrist has always been very quick to respond no matter what I have needed from him or if I’ve needed to speak to him outside a scheduled appointment. The office staff is always extremely helpful and kind. Very organized and well run. Best practice I’ve ever been a part of! Would give a 10 star review if I could."
"I have only had positive experiences at Potomac Psychiatry. The staff is friendly and helpful and my psychiatrist is amazing. They are quick to respond when I have a question or concern. I feel like I'm finally getting the help I've been needing."
"I’ve been with this practice now for about 5-1/2 years and I must say... my doctor I see has gone well above and beyond to help whenever I’ve been in a bind. Thanks to you all at Potomac Psychiatry!"
"Rather than simply prescribe pills, Dr. Kehr figures out what the underlying cause of a patient’s symptoms are. He gets down to the molecular level, patiently explaining things in a very understandable way. He’s a true scientist and craftsman with a superb manner. If you have had trouble addressing your issues and need a fresh and creative perspective, Dr. Kehr is your man. I cannot recommend him highly enough."
"The Root Cause program helped me to maintain the confidence that relief was coming in the near future. It was very assuring to know that doctors were going to solve my issues, not just partially settle them. Thank you to the entire Root Cause team for helping me to identify the source of my distress and getting me to a healthier state.”
