Displaying 16-21 of 21
I was at the end of my rope one day crying and couldn't go to work. I have been dealing with anxiety and depression for 20 years. I found his website and called for an appt and got one the same day. They are VERY honest and upfront about the fees. Nothing is for free and the fact that he is available in the evenings is great and shouldn't be looked at as a negative factor. It was $261 for the first visit. They TELL you this on the phone. He went over ALL of my forms with me. Yes, he was late but what doctor isn't? He was not cocky and I have my 2nd appt with him on Sunday. What other doctors are available during this time. I am also taking my sister with me so she can see him. You have to take the entire picture into perspective. If you have made your way to his website and call for an appt then you obviously (a) need help or (b) just want drugs. I liked him a lot.

Great pharmacologist, thorough yet straight to the point, knows his meds well, treated me respectfully and warmly. Not particularly insight oriented, I'll go to my favorite LPC for that! But did not ignore social/environmental factors. Was reflective, willing to discuss different tx options and medication alternatives. The office staff is sweet as pie.

My experience with Dr. Hege was very discouraging. He is, in person, a complete contradiction to the character he portrays on his website. I was demanded full payment (by cash or debit) for the appointment immediately upon arrival and after a nervous 30 minutes in the waiting room, was ushered into his office. I filled out 7 pages of forms detailing my medical history, yet he was clueless and had obviously not even looked at them. He never once looked me in the eyes and spoke to me in a derogatory fashion. When I brought up the medications he endorses on his website for my particular condition he was was evasive and dodgy. He's cold and arrogant in person. I left his office fully aware of why he gets the cash "up front."

Dr. Hege is not a doctor, he is a businessman. He charges his patients hidden fees and will not discuss treatment unless you are in his office and he is charging. He treats his patients in a cookie cutter manner.

I too,as the other rater, filled out form after form. I had decided to try him in helping me with my history of agoraphobia,panic attacks,PTSD,etc.I want despartely want to get off my meds. I was also told to arrive early,yet he was late taking me in,he was busy laughing with the receptionists.Talked to me for @10 min. told me I needed to be locked up in Peachford,offering no other suggestions. It is all about the MONEY of getting people into Peachford.PLEASE be advised that you may be coerced into signing papers on false pretenses and find yourself locked up and drugged. I had previous dealings w/Dr Hege in' 02.I was locked up in Peachford for a couple of days by lies and coersion.If you have any love or respect for yourself or loved one DON'T go to Peachford!

Before I got to see the doctor, I got all of these forms to fill out about fees for everything. I was warned to arrive forty-five minutes early to fill in paperwork, yet the doctor was almost twenty-three minutes late. After talking to me for roughly five minutes, he started pushing all of these off label drugs at me claiming I was severely depressed. All iI told him was that I'm angry because of chronic pain and no cause and out of that I need in hospital stay at Behavioral Health. Seriously, my co pay was thirty dollars, and I spent a grand total of elven minutes with him.
