He speaks as a fellow traveller, not as a superior. We laugh together, share deep questions and insights and he makes me feel respected. Stephen never disregards my own thought and feelings. He includes me in the treatment and decision making team. Medication is only one option.
Dr. Proud is not only an incredible doctor but an incredible human being. He is very skilled in and focuses upon the wellness of the patient. I am so grateful for him imparting his knowledge, compassion and care. I feel privileged to be a patient of Dr. Proud and I would recommend him to anyone.
I have been a patient with Dr. Stephen Proud now for about five years. He is very caring. He is very respectful of each persons subjective recovery journey. Through this & his compassion, he has a fantastic understanding & patience of his clients.
Dr Proud is hands down the #1 physiatrist in WA without doubt. I've been his patient for six years treated for generalised anxiety ,ADD and problematic addiction. He whole heartily puts himself into your situation treated with care, respect, honesty he is truly a man among men! He saved my life!
Our son sees Dr Proud for an acute anxiety problem. He says Dr Proud is the first Dr he has ever felt really comfortable with. He feels listened to, respected and cared about. Moreover, he learns good strategies for coping.
I've been a patient of Dr Proud for 12 years. Even though I only see him twice a year he's one of the most important people in my life.
My overall experience with staff ranged from being patronised to something approaching acceptability.
The consults were not particularly thorough - I was left wondering whether my condition could have been fully understood.
Dr Proud is the best Psychiatrist in Perth.
I say this as in my life I have had many!
I had acute anxiety, panic attacks, clinical depression and chronic drug addiction.
If it wasn't for Dr Proud, I would not be alive today.
Dr Proud has helped me manage my adult ADHD - he demonstrates "real life" techniques to manage relationships and situations.... not dwell on them.
Had a 5 minute appointment, a 150 dollar bill, and a prescription for drugs I didn't need.
Dr Proud is brief but caring. I see him for ADHD management and medication.
Dr Proud does not agree with how ADHD affects families.
He is a really lovely easy going Doctor, fully recommend him.
