I have been seeing Dr. Gopal for over 10 years. I have severe depression and generalized anxiety. This means I need continuous care. He helped me recover and stabilize my situation with a combination of drugs and talk therapy. He keeps on top of current developments. We now see each other by Skype (even before the pandemic), which is great because I now live 50 miles away. Dr. Gopal is a caring physician. He remembers things about my family and asks about them. I know that he will always be there if I need him. I have contacted him before my next scheduled visit and he has replied rapidly and talked to me when necessary.

Dr Gopal was able to correctly diagnose my son and analyze complicated family dynamics all within the first session. Prior to seeing him my son had been misdiagnosed for years and put on all sorts of terrible meds - he had totally lost faith in mental health treatment. So grateful to have found Dr Gopal!

This Doctor sent us bill for suposed services for my teen son put into hospital for Psychiatric evaluation, nobody asked what our insurance was or if I could afford his Non-network, does not accept insurance bills. A single mother with a son in crisis, who was put on a 4140 evaluation I should be assumed that I cannot afford very expensive psychiatric non-insurance health bills, and to boot is now sent it to collections to damage my credit, never was I consulted about his services, never was I given any report about his services, I don’t even know if he ever saw my son. Should not be allowed without any consultation of the party that will have to pay for the services, and then to send it to collections unbelievable. I never received any kind of diagnosis, notes any communication about this visit, so he gets to show up say he talk to my son, and then bill me hundreds of dollars, totally unacceptable.
