Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jha "Patients usually seek my services under distress and I try to provide a comprehensive assessment  and crisis management in a timely fashion. I see patients for either 30 mins or 50 minutes appointments  so that I can understand their history and issues and provide appropriate level of care. I believe our emotional and mental states can affect us in multiple ways and every one needs in individualised caring and treatment. Drugs and medications are not always the answer for every problem and I am conservative with medication use and believe that adequate mental health needs psycho pharmacology and psycho therapy. "

Dr. Jha is a very good listener. I find she tells me the hard truth... sometimes it's not what I want to hear but the truth nonetheless. Often it's not until I get home and really think that I appreciate what she says.

Dr. Jha is extremely cold, abrupt, and rude. Also, cannot ever reach receptionist (goes straight to voice mail), and she does not return phone calls. I went once and have been trying to cancel my second appointment now for over a week. NOT RECOMMENDED!

If I could give 0 stars, I would. Dr. (and I certainly use that word very loosely) is extremely unprofessional and borders on negligent. Aside from her rude, inattentive, and disrespectful attitude, she will attempt to drag every penny out of your pocket, all while seeming as if she couldn't care...more
