Have you seen Dr. Peter Blaes?
Time to move on
Posted on October 3rd, 2016
Iâve seen Dr BlasÃ© for 6-8 years (I really donât remember). Likable guy. Open Enrollment the heart of my condition is still persistent, and I really think there were other options that could have been explored It cost me my marriage, months after my job, and most recently my current GF accuses me of things I canât remember if they are true. Itâs a depressing feeling to have to go by someone elseâs account of things that you canât remember and always having to apologize for things you donât even know if they ever happened. In some cases Iâve retaliated against people because I donât believe them (and itâs frustrating to know your memory of event are not as good as theirs. Still when the stakes are high, what choice do you have. Iâm currently battling with some individuals that I know took advantage of me, and provably some stems from my memory. So right now there are police warrants in 3 jurisdictions totaling at least 7 charges, some felonies, and trying to get employed again. So the moral of the story, find someone that digs below the top layer to find ways to better treat conditions rather than putting band aids on it. I hate to be critical, but my life has been severely impacted by the lack or good treatment.

Great psychiatrist, great staff. Took me down on doses of prescribed anxiety medicine. Does exactly what you ask of him. Has psychotherapists for that range of issues.

I met Dr. peter Blaes for my initial appointment and he treated me with respect, and courtesy. I appreciate all the efforts he did at being my doctor.
OUTSTANDING PROFESSIONAL CARE
Posted on April 2nd, 2015
I've been a patient there for a number of years. This is the most personable group practice I have even known. My only wait time is when I show up early for an appointment. If I could rate a zero wait time I WOULD. The professional and support staff are always eager to meet my needs and take the time to let the "conversation/issues" evolve. I have recommended this practice and Dr. Blaes specifically many times without reservation.
Receptionist needs to go!!!!!
Posted on March 25th, 2015
The receptionist is absolutely horrible. I stayed because I was in crisis and thought Dr. Blaes was helping. But honestly, the receptionist's cold manipulative behavior is simply not even worth the best of care! (Dr. Blaes is fine, but not the best, so definitely not worth continuing to deal with her). She has gotten my appointments wrong on multiple occasions (Dr. Blaes is no help in these circumstances, which is horrible on his part), and anytime I ask her a question (whether over the phone or in person), she is beyond rude! Acts as though I am "bothering" her for doing her job! Absolutely ridiculous. In addition, I've had issues with billing a number of times, but again she is absolutely no help and clearly bothered by my asking questions about issues that she's caused! I know they use a billing company, but SHE passes the info on to them. Bottom line, she is unprofessional, unkind, and beyond incompetent. I am sure I am not the only one with issues with her. Hopefully they will finally get rid of her. If not, I will definitely be finding a new psychiatrist!

Dr. Blaes has the mix of good clinical assessment skills, and allowing his patients to set the direction of their medically based psychiatric treatment. I have been seeing him for 5 years, and any changes to my medications come only after all the options have been discussed.
Rude doc, suboptimal care
Posted on January 3rd, 2014
Doc is impatient, rude, egotistical, condescending, and argumentative. These are traits that are ill suited to a psychiatrist. Prescribes meds while providing little or no information on side effects or long term potential for addiction. His methodology for making assessments to make a diagnosis lacks rigorous diagnostic criteria. But he does accept insurance, which puts him in a unique category of generosity relative to many Washington area psychiatrists, who do not accept insurance. But there are others who do in this area so I would recommend attempting to see them before subjecting yourself to the sub-optimal care that this physician provides.
Looking for psych meds, you're at the right place

When I first started three years ago or so, they had the most horrible receptionist. Now they are staffed with nice, warm people. As far as dr. Blaes, I feel more prescription dependent than I ever have. Not a great feeling to be numb or constantly having medication after another thrown at you and yet you're no better than you started. Maybe I should have discovered this sooner but when I started talking to others about their psychiatrist, it blew me away with the things they said. That's when I had to re-evaluate my situation. He is a nice person but when you are at a crisis mode, don't look for his help in any way. He makes you feel crazy and bothersome. I'm looking into new doctors now because I need to get off all these pills. There has to be an alternative.

he is caring, relates well to patient, realistic approach to problem solutions, excellent "bedside" manner

If you are looking for a psychiatrist who will not pump you full on drugs, this is the man. Dr. Blaes listens and accepts your input and concern as both a patient and a person. I have seen this doctor for nine years and he has always out shined any other doctor I have seen.
