      Dr. Prikhojan says

      1. Psychotherapy.

      I have been trained in multiple methods of psychotherapy. Nevertheless, my specialty is Psychopharmacology, in which I hold a PhD. If I feel that the patient might benefit from intensive psychotherapy, I always refer them to a psychotherapist.

      2. Future-oriented treatment

      I always encourage patients to think positively about their future. This is only possible if each patient has a meaningful plan. Working on that plan is an important part of treatment.

      3. Answering phone calls

      I had a choice to outsource everything to a call answering service or the support staff. However, I chose to answer most of the calls myself. I do my best to respond personally to all calls within 24 h, during normal business hours.

      Dr. Prikhojan is an extremely knowledgeable and compassionate practitioner, with all aspects of his patients' care his foremost objective. Dr. Prikhojan takes time to understand any issues or concerns I may have and I trust him completely with my care. I have enthusiastically recommended Dr. Prikhojan to others and I will continue to do so. In my opinion, we need more health care providers like Dr. Prikhojan.
      in Nashville, TN |
      This doctor knew that I was allergic to a certain medicine, yet mistakenly prescribed the medicine and I need up having an allergic reaction to it because I made a mistake and took it. He failed to accept responsibility for his actions, and yet blamed the pharmacy. His billing department also wrote down my insurance wrong and never fixed that, making me responsible for over $300.00 out of pocket.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
