  • Cheryl

    Dr. Reader was my psychiatrist in Fairfax, VA in 2016. She listened and really understood what I was going through. I would recommend her to anyone.

  • Edward

    It has been good to come here every time

  • Lynzie

    Nothing but great things to say about Dr. Reader. If every Dr cared as much as she does, the world would be such a better place.

  • (5)

    Dr. Reader really took the time to get to know me and was very helpful.

  • Steven

    Dr. Reader conducts herself with a high professional demeanor. She appears to enjoy the ability to ask the right questions and quickly and accurately assess the situation. She is sympathetic and / or empathetic with her patient. Is does not patronize. Sometimes her focus on the task (analysis) can make one feel less connected with her. But she listens actively, so I always feel that I am being treated with respect and compassion. I would recommend her to others.

  • Ray
