I’ve been his patient over 8 years. Met him through impatient at Peachford Behavioral. I’m a Veteran and I’ve preferred his services to the VA with no offense to the VA, but the listening and attentiveness of Dr. Mehdi is top tier.

Dr. Medhi is a dangerous physician. He came highly recommended, but I was shocked when he became fixated on a small detail during our first telehealth visit, and didn’t hear a word I said after that. He wanted to put me through a dangerous detox procedure that I actually didn’t need (I’m not an addict or a substance abuser), AND which would’ve put me at grave risk d/t another medical condition I have. I attempted to talk with him 3 times in the next 3 days to discuss the misunderstanding, but he wouldn’t take my calls or reconsider his proposed treatment. I consider a physician a PARTNER in my care, not the director of it. And if they cannot accept that - like Dr. Medhi couldn’t - I won’t use them.

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.

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 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.
