Dr. Blachly-Flanagan is wonderful to work with and helped our family to diagnose our child's bipolar disorder which can take up to 10 years to diagnose. Her quiet, yet friendly demeanor allowed our son to open up and feel safe to share what he was going through. She also explained the various options for medications and has been willing to work with us to find the right dosage and type. From the first meeting with her, my husband and I felt like we had finally found the psychiatrist who could help our son. He had met with several other doctors who were unable to effectively treat him resulting in PHP and IOT. Bipolar is a lifelong mental illness and we feel that with her support, we have a team that can help him duing the ups and the downs to reach stability. Thank you!

We had a different psychologist and she moved to a different state. We loved Dr Mathison. The new doctor is just as good. It was a great fit My son had no problem opening up to her that it was surprising.Dr Flanagan is great. We love her. Thank you for providing doctor's who care about their patients.
