    I highly recommend Mr. Ward at Acorn Christian Counseling! He is very patient and knowledgeable. Also, he provides a biblical perspective on topics.
    I felt very at ease during counseling sessions while dealing with difficult matters.
    Mr. Ward served in Vietnam and is able to relate to many different types of people of all ages. I noticed he is excellent in communicating with kids but also equally excellent in communicating with adult men and women.
    He is a very kind person but is able to be honest in dealing with issues.
    I have only great things to say about my experiences at Acorn Christian Counseling!

    I had a regular office visit. Dr McCardle asked a few questions and adjusted one of my meds. I did feel a little more history taking on his part might have been part of my first visit. I am going back in 30 days to talk about my change in meds. Dr McCardle seemed knowledgeable and experienced. I have a long history with migraines and feel I have a good background in treatment myself. I just moved to the area and need a source for prescriptions and check-ups. I think this Dr will work fine for these needs. The office was not the most user friendly I have seen-many rules and regs posted on the wall. They must have many no-shows and non-payers. The receptionists/nurses-hard to tell what they were-had private conversations going on within hearing of the patients. Strictly not professional in my view. I come from a medical background and this type of activity was not allowed.

    Our son was seen by one of Dr. Fisher's associates, Jason Voor Hees. He received psychotherapy, and was evaluated at each session for an increase or decrease in depression. Our son felt very comfortable with Jason, and was able to discuss his thoughts and feelings.

    It was a typical annual follow-up doctor visit during which the doctor gave me very positive news that my course of treatment is working as evidenced by the most recent MRI's of my brain and that I have relapse free going on for several years now.
    My neurologist, Doctor Paxton Longwell, has a pleasant and professional bedside manner.  However, the practice to which he belongs has a lot of patients and it overbooks appointments so that every time I schedule an appointment I often have to wait over 30 minutes+ to see the doctor.  And it is often hard to make an appointment to see the doctor soon when you need to get in to see him for an expected problem.  I don't mind waiting maybe 10-15 minutes to see a doctor, but I am also a business professional whose time is also a precious commodity.  But the staff of the practice talks to me as if I am some child who is antsy and can wait on them when in fact I have a business to run and many client to which I must attend.  And I think the staff may be picking up that attitude from the other doctors of the practice who seem to have "a nasty edge" and "arrogance" about them.  However, I never got that from Doctor Longwell himself, but the attitude seems to be pervasive with the other doctors and staff.  
    I also have noticed that the doctors of the practice seem to be not up to be up to date or reluctant to treat their patients by more recent and highly effective and cost effective patient treatment regimens.  When I lived back home in Chicago and was experiencing an MS relapse, my neurologist immediately schedule me to undergo out patient IV treatment at a local Infusion Therapy Centre that lasted for an hour each day for about a week and the I would be placed on oral medication taken at home for the next several weeks.  And then I was back like new.  Down here in Texas, especially in Corpus Christi, the doctors immediately want to admit you to the hospital for treatment for a week which is medically unnecessary and too costly for the patient.  However, I suspect the doctors put people in the hospital to protect themselves from the locals who tend to be very "sue crazy" in order to protect themselves from liability.

    I was applying for a job with a local employer who scheduled me to see Dr. Fisher to undergo various psychological tests to be evaluated for my suitability for a position. I had undergone similar type testing for other companies and had absolutely no problems and always got hired for the job. The employer also sent me to see two doctors of medicine as part of the company's new hire process to evaluate my physical ability to do the job. I passed the physical exams with passing colors.
    Doctor Fisher's evaluation also gave me passing colors for the job. However, in his evaluation report to the employer, he inserted a small comment about his concern for my physical ability to do the job. Because he wrote that in my evaluation report, it blew my chances of being hired for the job! The employer dropped me like a hot rock. I was shocked by what happened to me. Doctor Fisher is not a medical doctor who is not in a position to evaluated anybody for the physical suitability of a job. Only a medical doctor can do that. However, he did include an evaluation comment on my physical suitability for the job but he is not a medical doctor. At this point I am considering taking legal action against the Doctor for blowing my chances of getting a job. Doctor Fisher is a very nice and friendly man who has a wonderful bedside manner, but he should not be opining on areas for which he is not qualified to evaluate.

    I had three family members who came in from out of state to work with Dr. Fisher and his staff . They all received neurofeedback for ADHD and some autism symptoms. Each one noticed a big improvement in attention, learning ability, and behavior as a result of the treatments. Neurofeedback takes time (approximately 30 sessions depending on need) and can be a little expensive. But to get such improvement and make such a difference in the child's future, without putting the child on meds, is well worth the price . His staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Fisher is very nice and very knowledgeable and can be difficult to get in to see because he is so popular - but it's worth the effort to get on his/his staff's schedule.

    We take the grand kids to them as well. They are good with the kids. They don't scare them. Usually, I don't have any trouble with the appointments. If they have to change something, they will call and get an okay.

    He is hard to get in to see. He is a nice enough man. When we went in to see him in February. It had been awhile since my daughter has been assessed for ADHD. The last doctor also diagnosed her with dyslexia. We really wanted an exact yes or no with the dyslexia. Since she is headed off to college, we needed to figure out how to handle it. He wanted to do a $800 brain mapping. He said she needed 30 sessions of brain training. We just wanted a diagnosis. We never got it. We have talked to another psychologist. He did the week long training and said that it wasn't effective.

    Vicky is extremely compassionate and caring about her clients, she takes time to fully understand the situation that they're having and gives honest feedback. She's not one of those generic feeling, "how do you feel about your mother" or "how does that make you feel" counselors. She honestly cares. She's really laid back and funny, I personally don't care for counselors who make it feel like an overly clinical environment. It's counseling, you're here to work on an issue - you need to be comfortable; she definitely makes you feel that way.

    During our marriage counseling sessions she gave tips on how to help each other realize when we're doing something negative to the relationship and calmly (or humorously) point them out to each other. Her "blinking light" trick has really helped us laugh at each other and more easily address what each of us is doing negative.

    During individual sessions she's very attentive and helps to facilitate and bring forth the "real" problem. (same with the marriage counseling sessions too) Once you find the "real" issue then she helps you to work on it, you may not like what she has to say sometimes but it's honest.

    When you call then leave a message as there's not staff answering the phone, she handles her own scheduling, it's a confidential line and she always returns your call! She's got a really flexible schedule as well.

    Overall I'd recommend her to anyone having troubles individually or within their relationship.

    I really like him. He is very accepting, very knowledgeable, and very educated. He appears to keep up pretty well with the trend and has been very helpful. He works with adults and children and my son has seen him also for IQ testing.
