Very kind and will listen to you. He’s not the type to throw pills and overly-medicate you, he actually gives you options and listens to your concerns, then chooses which medication will work best. He is the first doctor in my 21 years of life that has shown such compassion.

Always calm, courteous, and kind. Flexible availability and on time appointments. Dr. Saxena was suggested to me by my therapist, while I was looking for a new psychiatrist. Accepts many kinds of insurance. Getting an appointment was no hassle and the appointments are routinely on time. Can't say enough!

Bad manners and likes to hear himself talk rather than getting important info from client. Is he really a child psychiatrist?

Pleased with the suggestions Dr. Saxena provided for our family. He listened to our family background and provided insight to help meet the needs of our child. He was compassionate in informing me of biological issues and to change our thoughts and patterns to improve our child’s behavior. Recommend going in with an open mind, ready for change and Dr. Saxena will provide you guidance.

Dr. Saxena is the BEST psychiatrist I have ever had the privilege of working with. He was able to see through the different layers of all I was struggling with and find the right medication for me that cut my anxiety in half and was able to give my life back.

Dr. Saxena is one of the only providers I can get covered by my insurance. He was very rude and refused to listen to anything I had to say. When I was concerned about my father's cancer and the possibility of him dying before walking me down the aisle, Dr. Saxena proceeded to lecture me about god for 15 minutes, despite the fact that I had never shown any faith. Also, he kept me on ineffective medication despite my constant protests.

The most unprofessional, rude and arrogant healthcare provider I have ever come across. He had evaluated my child at the request of her school.... did not take any of my input into consideration at all. Dismissed all the information I relayed via her pediatrician, telling me her Dr was wrong for not putting her on medication. THEN he proceeded to tell me I was not ready to help my daughter because I would not medicate her with ADHD meds.
