I've seen dr. Mehdi for two years. He is the most kind and compassionate doctor who really listens to you. He is, by far, the best psychiatrist I've seen in my 20 year diagnosis of bipolar disorder. His office staff is awesome as well.

Dr Mehdi is a true compassionate professional. At first I was a bit hesitant and untrusting, however he quickly showed me that he really cared and I wasn’t just another number.

Highly recommend Dr. Mehdi. He is very knowledgeable but also listens to your concerns. I never felt pressured to take another pharmaceutical, although it was discussed. He listened to my concerns and helped me without adding psychotropics.

Probably one of the best doctors offices experiences I’ve ever had. Very lucky to have found him, it. I would highly recommend to anyone that needs a great understanding doctor to check in at his office. However, I like the fast pace and minimal weight time… So schedule your appointments on days when I don’t have one. Just kidding…

I was a walk-in from Peachford across the street and they made the effort to squeeze me in to meet with Dr Mehdi within 15 minutes. That’s never happened with any other doctor’s office I’ve visited. A huge relief to start on medication today without having to schedule a later appointment.

Dr. Mehdi is an incredible doctor. His level of attention and concern is incredibly comforting, especially during a trying time. He has been my doctor during a huge crisis and worked with my through it and has continued offering an incredible level of care during my stabilization. I would recommend him to anyone seeking help for addiction, sleep issues, and mental health.

Dr. Mehdi noticed some significant behavioral change related to current stresses I am dealing with. He immediately suggested modifying by medicine, and because I value and respect his knowledge and judgement, I am making the suggested changes.

Dr. Mehdi is very observant, intelligent, compassionate, and possesses all the attributes I desire in a great psychiatrist. He listens well with intent and makes careful changes and decisions involving medical care. He also is a specialist in sleep care, which is a huge bonus to me!

Dr. Mehdi is a seriously dangerous doctor that should be sued for malpractice. He threw me into his mental hospital without provocation when I was seeking a second opinion from him. I have a doctor to back me up that I wasn't ill at the time. He refused to discharge me even after he admitted his mistake. He is collecting insurance money by accusing patients of an unsubstantiated illness and admitting them to a prison where patients are abused. He now has a class action suit filed against him.

Dr. Mehdi is very attentive. He listens to you, and is not afraid or won't hesitate to put you in the hospital if you need inpatient care, or an adjustment in your meds. I got so angry with him once when he commited me to Peachford! But, it was exactly what I needed. I have been emotionally stable ever since...out of mental hospitals since 2016. That is excellent for me, because I usually am in and out of hospitals multiple times a year. I would highly recommend him as a psychiatrist.
