Dr. Fier is unlike most of the psychiatrists out there. He is truly invested in understanding me as a WHOLE person, not just in fixing my symptoms. He doesn't run to medicate me every time I'm hitting a rough spot. He always presents me with a wide range of options, which often include non-medication choices. He knows a lot about herbal and naturopathic treatments, and seems extremely comfortable with Complementary Medicine approaches. He has made a huge difference in my life. I thank God, every day, for sending me someone who invests the time and energy into understanding me as more than just a diagnosis.

    Fier is the warmest, most approachable doctor I have ever met. He doesn`t act like he knows everything. He is kind, humble, and absolutely brilliant. He understands me in ways that allow me to see things completely differently. He always makes me laugh, even when I`m feeling my worst. He knows just how to use humor he used to be a stand-up comedian and knows just when to be quite serious. He has taught me more about life and suffering and meaning than anyone I have every met in Church or in the mental health field. His wisdom is truly awesome. I am very blessed to have Fier in my life.

    Dr. Fier has made our lives better by tending to our son with special needs. He is the most caring, loving, and personal doctor I've ever met and we have been through a lot. I recommend Dr. Eric Fier to anyone looking for a psychiatrist that will treat you with the ut-most respect and care.

    Dr. Fier literally gives his life to his patients. You feel how much he cares in everything he says and does. There is nothing I can't ask him and nothing I can't say. He understands me and accepts me and makes me feel like I am the single most important patient he treats. He has made a huge difference in my life and makes me want to help others like he has helped me. He always knows how to make me laugh, even when I feel like crap. I can't thank him enough for being just the kind of doctor he is.

    by panda1945 at Citysearch on May 26th, 2011 on citysearch.com

    I have unfortunately seen a number of psychiatrists over the years. Some have been helpful others less so. But Dr. Fier has been the first and sadly ONLY doctor to show a true and genuine interest and passion about what I am feeling and experiencing inside. He was not loading me up on meds after 10 minutes of impersonal conversation. He made an incredibly diligent effort to take the time to really understand who I was and where I was coming from. He thought about my symptoms both medically and even symbolically -- helping me understand myself 1000x better than anyone has ever done before. He loves what he does and that comes across in every interaction. He spends more time with me than any doctor ever has, and seems to genuinely feel my pain with me. I see him as a trusted mentor, guide, and friend. He inspires me to be all he knows I am capable of being. I can`t thank him enough for accepting me as his patient and allowing me the chance to begin to truly heal.

    A really amazing doctor -- one of the few ive seen that is truly compassionate, caring, spiritual. didnt just run to medicate me -- thought really carefully about where i was coming from and what i was dealing with and made sure not to miss a single detail. answered all my questions -- even my emails. i felt like i had my own personal physician just for me. treated me like i was his most important patient. couldn't have made this journey w/o him.

    Dr. Fier could quite possibly be the Best Psychiatrist in Atlanta.He is attentive and meticulous. His knowledge of pharmacology is extremely impressive. He can water down the most intricate details of a meds uses so that even a two year old can understand. That`s a rare jewel in this designer label physician era. Some physicians today merely wear a finely crafted garment, rely upon the pharmaceutical reps knowledge and courtesies, and seduce patients with their charm and RX pad. His new office, located in Inman Park, has a really cultured feel and is in a choice locale. The Interior design treatment is walking on a dream. Latisha, the boss ladyoffice manager, is equally wonderful as well.Above all else, Dr. Fier`s compassion and empathic chair side manner are extraordinary. He genuinely accepts his patients as human beings, not just clients or customers.

I have tried so many meds, many narcotics, and nothing helped. Dr. Fier`s initial treatment plan worked beautifully and I now have my life back and only have to take meds a few days a month and no narcotics. Dr. Fier has been a blessing to my family and myself...I will be eternally greatful for this kind doctor for his wisdom and knowledge.

    Dr. Fier is always responsive to me. He`s a great listener, but he doesn`t just say \"\"and how does that make you feel\"\" He provides real solutions and strategies. He doesn`t rely on another therapist to do the hard part and then just write the prescription in a 5-min. session. He may be running behind on a particular day, but you always know that you will get your full time and more. When you are Dr. Fier`s patient, you always come first.

    I first met Fier when I saw him perform at The Punchline Comedy Club. I knew, once I heard he was a psychiatrist, that I just found my new doctor. It`s pretty rare to have a psych that also does stand-up on the side. To me, there`s nothing more important than having a shrink that can always make me laugh - even when I feel my worst. I love seeing him on stage -- he`s really smart and funny -- and the crowd always loves him. He makes a joke that goes something like \"\"Having a psychiatrist is like paying to have a really good friend...with really good druggs.\"\" Even without the druggs, I would so want to have him as my friend. He`s the best doctor I`ve ever had. Period.

    As a physician, I am very selective about who will treat my family members. When my wife was struggling with unremitting depression, I carefully researched the Atlanta area psychiatrists. Dr. Fier was the name I CONSISTENTLY received from other physicians as the first (and sometimes only) person I should call. My wife and I have been extremely pleased with his level of compassion, thoughtfulness, intellect, and humor. He has quite literally saved our family. I am deeply indebted to him for all he has done to help us.

    I brought my kids to Dr. Fier after hearing great things about him everywhere I turned. He has been the most involved and caring doctor I have ever worked with, and my kids absolutely adore him. He is funny, smart, and very good looking (not that that matters), and has helped our family in many, many ways. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a doctor that will NOT just dope up your kids, but will listen, play, guide, and support. He has helped my children rebuild their self-esteem and be proud of themselves, even with their learning differences.

    Dr. Fier is the most insightful and compassionate doctor I have ever seen. He spends a great deal of time trying to understand who I am, rather than just sticking me with a label and a pill. He is a deeply spiritual guy with a very cool perspective on the meaning of suffering and the importance of coming to understand one`s purpose. He doesn`t do any of the psychobabble stuff he`s just straight uplays it out there and lets you process it. He`ll call you out if you`re not being real. I really value that no-nonsense approach. He doesn`t do insurance anymore, so it can get a bit expensive after a while on the other hand, he often spends over an hour with me and has never charged me for a phone call, even when I know he should have. I feel like he is incredibly sincere, down-to-earth, and deeply invested in his patients.

    Fier epitomizes cool. He`s been my doc for about 2 years, and I can honestly say that I have never met a doctor more attentive, invested, and empathic than Dr. Fier. He somehow manages to weave humor into almost everything, in the coolest, most off-handed ways he has truly taught me how to laugh again it`s been a long time! Fier always just gets it. No matter how complicated and difficult something seems, he`s able to conceptualize it and break it down in a way that makes it seem so much more manageable. I have no clue how he does it, but he`s got this killer style that just puts you immediately at ease. He`s so cool and down to earth, you can talk to him about anything. He just gets it -- and you can tell that it really matters to him that he does. He`s a kickass psychotherapist, not just a pill pusher -- I love that he doesn`t just rely on meds to fix everything.
