Craigan Usher, Psychiatry

February 2014 Golden Rose Recipient

Craigan Usher

Dr. Usher sees my daughter in his clinic for medication checkups. My daughter is on a variety of medications for Autism, ADHD and Tourette's syndrome. It has been a long process finding the right combination of medications that work for her, but Dr. Usher has always been encouraging and supportive. My daughter is not what you would call a "typical" teenager as she is not interested in fashion, boys or even social functions, but she is interested in Anime. Dr. Usher has taken the time to learn about the Anime that is special to her and uses this to get her to talk about how she is feeling, what she has been doing and what her life is like living with Autism. He is patient and kind and my daughter feels comfortable talking to him. The world needs more caring psychiatrists like Dr. Usher!
