Testimonials

I have been a patient of Dr.Farah Khan's for several years now. She is a very good doctor that listens closely to what you have to say. She may ask a few questions, but she gives me the opportunity to open up and talk to her about things on my mind that may be bothering me. Things that are going on in my life rather it be the past or present. Dr. Khan also answers any and all of my questions. I have seen several psychiatrist. In my opinion Dr. Khan is one of the best psychiatrist in Jefferson County, Alabama. Dr. Khan's office in Vestavia located in Jefferson County, Alabama is easy to get to and parking is available free and convenient.

Dr. Khan is the best psychiatrist around. She has an in depth knowledge and understanding in ALL of the different options when it comes to treating mental health issues. She has been a tremendous help to myself as well as my family's understanding of my own personal mental health and educating those around me in order to better understand what I am going through.

Andrew J

I have tried various, different mental health clinics and nothing had really worked for me. I had a friend that had gotten treatment through Alabama Psychiatry and Counseling and she recommended I try it out. As soon as I walked in, I felt comfortable. Dr. Khan worked with me to really personalize my care and I never felt judged or out of place. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a great treatment center.
