Reviews

Amazing place. The staff here is excellent. Needed an appointment on short notice and BG and Caroline were extremely helpful in setting it up as soon as possible. Doctor Keeling even worked outside of her normal schedule to meet with me and I truly appreciate it. I highly recommend Savant Care.


I have an awesome experience with Dr Keeling she is a well manner and compassionate Dr I only had 3 sessions with her and I feeling Im heading in the right path, thank you also to Paul and Richard awesome guys always ready to give a hand


I just recently moved from Texas to California, and was having the most difficult time finding a psychiatrist until working with BG at Savant Care. BG listened to my concerns and truly empathized with my situation. He went above and beyond to make sure I found a doctor who was local and met my needs. He is valuable member of the Savant Care team and should be recognized! Still have not seen Dr. Keeling yet, but if she is anything like her staff then the experience will be excellent.


My experience with Dr. Keeling has been great. The first appointment I had with her was 90 minutes, and she asked lots of questions about my background and mental health history. I've never worked with such an attentive psychiatrist, and she quickly ...put me at ease. She welcomes questions and is always willing to explain her reasoning behind decisions about medication or diagnoses. Dr. Keeling's assistant, Richard, is also great to work with. Whether it's a question about scheduling appointments, an issue I need to have addressed by the doctor, or a last minute refill request, he's always on top of things and quick to get back to me.


She was very down to earth and pleasant. Her suggestions were great!


So far for visiting her for only one time, she seemed very knowledgeable and thorough. Looking forward to the next appt.


Dr, Marita Keeling is an excellent psychiatrist. She has tonnes of experience and has been in practice for well over 30 years and that reflects in the level of care she provides to her patients. I have been very impressed with my doctor and Savant Care. Very helpful support staff! Highly recommend!


Marita Keeling reminds me of my grandmother. She is always so sweet and kind, and has a really great bedside manner! I feel really comfortable talking with her about my recent depressive episodes, and feel as if she truly cares about me and my well being. It has been 6 months, and I am on my way towards a better life thanks to her.


It was simply amazing, she was courteous always smiling and made me feel completely at ease!


Amazing!!!


Dr Keeling was awesome! She was respectful, but direct and very effective in diagnosing my issues. She was able to get all the relevant details necessary in our first session. I am very impressed! Thanks Dr Keeling!


I really enjoyed my visit with Dr Keeling. I appreciated the layman's medical explanation of what I was experiencing and how the medicine might affect it. The office seems to be going through a major tech overhaul. Lots of bugs to get worked out. Might be trying to complicate things too much.
