Dr. Mangat is highly intelligent, well-informed, and excellent at what he does. He is also kind, caring, and dedicated to making sure patients get what they need. He has changed our lives, our marriage, and our future in ways we couldn’t even imagine...because he was able to help my husband finally get what he needed. Other doctors tried for years to “fix” him, but nothing ever seemed to be the right answer. Dr. Mangat changed that, and my husband is a different person now. (He is happier, more confident, and so grateful for finally getting the proper care and medications for his condition!) Anyway, I will forever be thankful for what Dr. Mangat has done for my husband. Also—he is very good at explaining things in a way that makes sense. And he’s very knowledgeable about medications and how they work in our bodies, as well as with other medications. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Mangat. **NOTE: Don’t always trust star ratings!! So many people think 1 star is the top rating!! :(

Thankful – Feb 01, 2020
I have recommended this doctor to my friends and will continue to do so. He has a wealth of knowledge and realms of experience. I am pleased with his ability to listen and understand what I struggle to express. He picks up things quickly; it is amazing. He is not strong on chatting, but he can find you a social worker. His focus is evaluating my health and finding strategies. He is a tall imposing man, a Sikh with a turban. Get over it. His English is as good as mine, and he has a big heart.

Dr. Starr Steckler in Slidell, LA – Apr 02, 2018
Dr. Mangat explains mental illness so clearly that I finally understood what was happening in my mind. He really works to make sure you are actually complying with what he prescribes, and I got some tough love a few times. But it WORKED. Brilliant doctor - the best psychiatrist I've ever seen. It's not about pleasing or pacifying you. It's about treating you. I went to tons of psychiatrists before Dr Mangat - someone who actually told me what I needed to hear. Whether or not I agreed or liked it

Pam in Slidell, LA – Apr 30, 2017
Dr. Mangat is the most amazing man I have ever had the privilege of meeting. He took the time to listen and really understand what was stuck in my mind but also help me understand it all. He helped me put words to things I've fought with for years and I now have a true sense of relief that I will see progress as he understands much deeper than any other MD out there. He personally connects and helps you understand not only your conditions but each medication Anand it's effects and purpose.

Covingto,LA – Feb 09, 2017
After a payment issue (over $10), I rec'd a letter in the mail stating that I am being discharged from his care. This was after my very 1st appt. What happened was I was short $10 on my 1st visit. A week later, I paid it, and asked for my records to be sent to my lawyer (for something unrelated.) After getting the letter from the office, I called for a reason. They said it's b/c I'm an unreliable patient b/c it seemed I paid the minimum to get records for my lawyer. They never let me explain.

Annonymous in Slidell, LA – Apr 23, 2016
I am a family member of a hospital patient and veteran to whom Dr. Mangat was consultant. I cannot imagine bringing a CHILD to this man. He is cold and arrogant. To illustrate by example, I repeated back what he said in an effort to clarify because his English is just barely understandable MOST of the time, but at times he lost me. Suddenly he condescendingly snapped, What about this do you not understand?, as if I were the problem. I didn't even initiate the call. He had the nurse get me...
