Best Day Psychiatry and Counseling, formerly known as Fayetteville Psychiatric Associates,</span> is here to help you have a better day and find a better way. No matter the level of care, you can count on the Best Day team to be there. We treat a wide range of psychiatric conditions for both children and adults, including:
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), is a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social interactions, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.
Anxiety disorder is an umbrella term that can include different conditions, such as panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and more.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the preferred medical term for the biologically-based neurological condition once known as ADD and can be broken down into three categories.
Robert Matlack, MD
Robert Matlack, MD grew up in Fayetteville, NC and startedBest Day Psychiatry and Counseling, formerly known as Fayetteville Psychiatric Associates, in 2004, with the mission of treating children and adults with psychiatric needs. Since then, the practice has grown; we've added new physicians, as well as therapists, to increase access to care for the people of Fayetteville and surrounding areas.
As the practice grew beyond Fayetteville to include offices in Fuquay-Varina and Raleigh, in 2018 the name was changed to Best Day to reflect the goal to provide each patient a "better day" through a "better way" of providing exceptional psychiatric therapy and medication management services to patients!
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
We are accepting new patients at our Raleigh, Fayetteville and Fuquay-Varina locations. Let our compassionate staff help you experience a better day!
The initial assessment helps us get to know you a little better. We'll discuss your symptoms, previous mental health concerns and any other relevant medical history.
With outpatient therapy from the team at Best Day, we can help you or a loved one make positive life changes. We treat both adults and children with our evidence-based care.
Best Day offers medication management. Our goal is to optimize drug therapy and improve the therapeutic outcomes for all of our patients.
We are committed to each and every patient we have the privilege to serve. Hear what some happy patients have to say!
"I’ve been seeing Mr. Downs for several months now and he’s not let me down once. He’s always had time for me, listened to me, worked with me and for me to help me manage my issues. When another practice failed me terribly, he did everything he could to help. I know everyone has their own experiences, but I would recommend him to anyone."
