“I really like and respect Dr. Debeck. She’s extremely easy to talk to and tries to build a personal relationship as much as possible in the short appointment time. I’m always surprised how she remembers details about my life — my boyfriend’s name, upcoming trips, etc — even though we meet only every few months. She doesn’t force medication options on you, she presents pros and cons and gives you a voice. I also appreciate she is firm, in a good way, and calls me out on my BS. I need that!”
“I have been seeing Dr. deBeck for 4 years now, and she has completely changed my life. I am 27, and prior to seeing Dr. deBeck, I had upwards of 5 psychiatrists. Never have I had a doctor that listened to my feedback and really catered my treatment plan to my wants and needs, and she does just that and more. I work in the mental health industry and I will never stop ranting and raving about how incredible Dr. deBeck is. Do yourself a favor and schedule an appointment.” ~ Samantha
“I have been seeing Dr. Karla de Beck for about two years now. Dr. de Beck is knowledgeable, compassionate, reliable, and efficient. She makes the most of the time she spends with patients and listens to their concerns. I have been very pleased with the care I have received and hope she never leaves this practice.” ~ Allison
