Dr Patel comes across as condescending and dismissive of your situation. The second time I saw him, he insulted me outright. I am all for doctors being blunt; I prefer it in fact. This however, crossed the line from blunt to mean. My belief is that a psychiatrist should help you and give you hope, not leave you feeling worse than when you went in. Even my therapist was shocked and appalled at his treatment of me. Apparently he's done this before. Can't recommend him at all.
