I would recommend this doctor because I came to see him when I was in a terribly ill state, non-functioning with extreme anxiety and depression and he knew the right combination of treatment of medications and confidence that he could help me, and within a reasonable period of time and he did deliver on that.

Would highly recommend Dr. Hameedi . He takes the time to allow patients to comfortably discuss issues, therefore appointments may run a bit over. Truly worth it. He's not a pharmacy pusher, he prescribe medication that actually works in which you notice improvement. So pleased that I have finally found someone caring ,understanding and I'm comfortable with .So blessed !!!

I really love Dr Hameedi and after two years of staying with him even though he has NEVER been able to keep a scheduled appointment time. The final straw was me sitting there at 7:30 waiting since my 6:30 appointment I told the nasty receptionist that I had to leave and how this was unprofessional and left. Dr Hameedi called me at 8:30 yelling and said this is not the Bronx, not sure what he meant by that and told me if I wanted to continue to be a patient that I would have to wait. Nice

I have been treated by Dr. Hameedi since 1992. I have nothing but the nicest things to say about this great doctor and would/have recommended him to many people with psychiatric disorders. He is greatly empathetic and believes firmly in the quality of life. Throughout all my years of being treated by him, we've been through some rough times but he always brings me back to a happier place. Whether it's altering my medications or offering words of advice...he has ALWAYS been there for me.
