"She is one of the best child psychiatrists in Tampa. Great bedside manner -- very thoughtful and kind. We never felt rushed with her. There was a bit of wait to get an appointment as a new patient but after the 1st visit, we were able to get follow up visits pretty quickly."

"Dr. Linek is amazing. She went above and beyond to help our family understand this diagnosis. She spent extra time explaining things and really listening to me and my child. I felt like we made decisions together. She is most interested in what is best for your entire family. We would highly recommend her to everyone."
Conditions We Treat
Dedicated Psychiatrists
"Dr.Linek was phenomenal with my foster daughter who has several behaviors. She treated me and my FD like people and not just another number of clients she had to see. She was very detailed oriented and always went above and beyond. If I had issues she would call me back quickly. She never rushed me and gave me great support as well. I am very sad she won’t be taking care of my FD anymore. She is kind, empathetic and understanding."
Family-focused Care
"I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Linek. She is wonderful. She helped tremendously with my kiddo. Not only did she help my kiddo, but she really strived to help (and did help) the entire family. She always spent the time needed to answer my questions, go through the pros and cons of any treatment, and really listened to my concerns and then addressed them. Trust her instincts! She is a fantastic doctor."
