"I had very good experience with Dr. Roby a few years ago during the peak time of COVID when several of my colleagues got hit by the virus and I got hit by the stress. Dr. Roby was very professional and knowledgeable in stress and anxiety management. She’s patient and explained/discussed in detail different medication options. If, though hopefully not, next episode of anxiety hits me, I’ll definitely see her again."

"I have been seeing Dr. Roby for almost four years now, and a lot has happened in my life during this time. Dr. Roby is incredibly professional, punctual, and compassionate. She is always on time for our appointments, listens attentively, and provides invaluable support during life crises. She guided me through tapering off medications I had been on for decades, explaining the risks and benefits each step of the way. Her thorough follow-ups eased any concerns I had. I felt safe and confident throughout this process, trusting her expertise. I truly appreciate her excellent care and would recommend her to anyone in need. "

"Dr. Yang Roby is absolutely wonderful. She listens, addresses any questions and concerns with kindness, explains her suggestions and reasoning in full and in a way that is easy to understand. She cares deeply about her patients and making sure they are taking the medication(s) best suited to their needs and who they are as an individual. She understands that medications aren't a once size fits all sort of situation. I feel lucky to have her as part of my care team and wouldn't want any other psychiatrist to work with. I've been seeing her for over a year and am very satisfied with my experience. "

"I have been seeing Dr. Roby for the past three years. After seeing a few other psychiatrists in the past that were not helpful, I was in a dark place and was fortunate to be connected with Dr. Roby. Dr. Roby has been extremely supportive to me over the past few years, has worked with me on finding the right medications, and is never judgmental if I get off track. I have gone through some personal and professional challenges lately, which may have sent me in the wrong direction in the past, but Dr. Roby has helped connect me with other resources and meets with me once a week to make sure that I continue in a positive direction. I highly recommend Dr. Roby and have found her to be one of the best psychiatrists in the area."

"After my daughter received a year of treatment from Dr. Roby, I switched my own psychiatric care to her because she is professional, caring, and supportive—a rare find. Dr. Roby is punctual and dedicates time to discuss medication options, plans, and lifestyle changes. She actively reaches out for my daughter's treatment, and both of us feel heard, understood, and comfortable under her care. Since meeting Dr. Roby, both my daughter and I feel we are in the best place. I would highly recommend her! "

"I've battled depression for decades before I found Dr. Roby. She's been a game-changer in my life. Working with her has been very enjoyable and pleasant. She doesn't just handle my meds like a pro and explain everything in a way that makes sense, but she also hammers in the importance of changing up my lifestyle. She's all about meditation and mindfulness, which greatly benefited my life and it makes a huge difference. I can't thank her enough. "

"I cannot express enough gratitude for the exceptional care I have received from Dr. Roby. She is patient and professional, creating a safe space where I felt truly heard. As an individual with an Indian background, I was especially appreciative of her ability to bridge the gap between my cultural experiences and my therapeutic journey. In just a few sessions, she guided me to a profound self-realization. While Dr. Roby adeptly manages my medications, it is her therapeutic skills that truly stand out. She introduced me to Satir transformation therapy, guiding me through meditation and helping me reconnect with my younger self. Through this process, I found healing in the act of reparenting myself. Her approach was transformative, allowing me to heal in ways I hadn’t thought possible.

"Dr. Roby has been my rock for the past two years. I've had my fair share of ups and downs, ending up in the hospital multiple times due to life throwing curveballs at me. I've seen my share of psychiatrists since I was a kid, but Dr. Roby is the one who stuck by me through thick and thin. She handles my meds, hooks me up with resources whenever I'm in a jam, and even reaches out to other providers outside her office to make sure I get the care I need. She's the only doc I completely trust. Seriously, I can't sing her praises loud enough—she's just the best. "

"I was initially taken aback by some of the reviews I read on this website. BUT My personal experience with Dr. Roby has been exceptional. I have been under her care for nearly three years, a period during which I have faced numerous challenges in my life. Throughout this time, Dr. Roby has consistently shown unwavering compassion for my situation. She has a wealth of knowledge and approaches her work with genuine passion. During our sessions, she takes the time to listen and assess my wellness comprehensively, offering invaluable advice. Importantly, she respects my autonomy, allowing me to make decisions about my own well-being, even when they haven't always been the best choices. Yet, she is always there to catch me when I fall, providing the support I need to navigate difficult moments. I am deeply grateful to have found a psychiatrist like Dr. Roby who genuinely cares about her patients. I am fortunate to have her by my side on this journey to recovery. "

"Dr. Roby came into our first appointment and within minutes made it clear she disagreed with over half of my diagnoses. She would not listen to me. She was made transphobic comments, referring to my gender as a “preference” among other things. She refused to refill a medication that I have been on for 3 years and has been extremely helpful because it interacts with another condition I have which I decided with a prior doctor was a balance I was willing to take. The last time I went off this medication with no tapering, my resting heart rate was 180 bpm. She insisted that I needed to be in a therapeutic program that I had been in for 5 years and graduated from. Very often talked about how she went to medical school and made comments disparaging the diagnoses and treatments from other providers. Would give zero stars if I could. She should not be providing care to patients."

"Dr. Roby listened to my concerns and helped me understand the source of my issues. She is patient, supportive, and makes certain that I am comfortable with my treatment plan. I have been under Dr. Roby's care for over a year. During this time, I have overcome obstacles that I have struggled with all my life. I highly recommend Dr. Roby. "

"Dr. Roby has helped me understand the feelings that led me to seek help from a psychiatrist. She listens attentively to what I have to say and has partnered with me on a way forward. I have been able to overcome a major obstacle in my life due to her help. I highly recommend Dr. Roby. She has really made a difference in my life. "

"Would ask me a question and then interrupt me two words in. Didn't listen to me at all. If I didn't understand something she asked, instead of explaining it in a different way, she'd just keep repeating herself. I didn't feel heard. She also started telling me what she planned to do without giving me a say in my treatment. No options offered. Just, "This is what we're going to do, this is what we're going to change." In psychiatry, plans should be made with the patient. Plans should not be dictated to patients, followed by shaming the patient if they ask for more options. No complaints about the office. "
