Dr McEvedy is a considerate and knowledgeable, and has excellent assessment and care-planning skills. He is able to engage well with patients and is able to effectively and efficiently identify they primary needs/concerns and assist them in addressing these is a therapeutic manner. As part of the Liaison Psychiatry service he has assessed and treated patients with a wide variety of symptoms and illnesses. The patient group he has supported are from the ages of 18 years old upwards, and he has cared for patients experiencing illnesses such as depression, substance misuse, personality disorder, conversion disorder, psychosis, mood disorders, factitious disorders, body dysmorphia, eating disorders as well as a multitude of other conditions. I would recommend he as an excellent psychiatrist, who will provided patients with excellent care.
I found Dr Mcevedy a compassionate and caring doctor who listened to my problems and offered helpful advice.
Within the psychiatry profession there are a small minority who actually care for patients and will do everything in their power to help them. Many sadly, are more interested in their academic prowess and don't have even the basic personality traits which equip them to be effective doctors. They lack courage, accountability and compassion. They rely on drugs to achieve solutions and have little other resources at their disposal especially those which come from their own drive to do all they can in the patient's best interest. This doctor falls heavily into this camp. He has chosen the wrong profession, probably because he has an intellectual interest in the theory of the mind,not because he has the slightest interest in helping the mentally ill recover.
