Very satisfied with MindPath. Very fast follow up to schedule an appt and my provider Alecia was excellent. She listened to what I had to say, answered my questions, discussed options with me...extremely professional. This is the kind of care that makes it worth driving to Raleigh from Fayetteville. Where, by the way, none of the mental health providers can be bothered to return a phone call. I actually have hope now that my condition(s?) will be correctly diagnosed and the right meds prescribed. Thank you so much for what you do
