Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Nurse practitioner Allison repeated herself at least twice after she yelled that I was talking over her (I was not, just asking questions), and then said that our time was up after five minutes and that her next patient was waiting....after I waited in the lobby for over 45 minutes to see her. She refused to change anything concerning my meds and said only Doctor H could...which is not correct...every visit to a psychiatrist should be productive, and this visit just was not.

Was late for an appointment by "FIVE" minutes and the staff refused to let me see him. Needed my meds refilled so I nearly begged to see him. Would not let me. Said I should've left home earlier. How was I to know the city was doing tree trimming? They told me to come back at FIVE PM! During rush hour. Just what I need for my nerves! Had to come back the following day! Told Patel of the issue, and he just shrugged his shoulders! Needless to say that was the last time I saw him!

I understand an appropriate amount of time for a delay for an appointment but was informed when I had reached the office yesterday for an appointment 10 minutes later that I would have to reschedule due to a five minute grace period. I had drove over two hours from work and unforeseen events led to the delay. This is very unprofessional and could lead to negative events for patients who may have SMIs. I have a minor concern but others may not have. I will not be returning again.

Not available when you need to see him and his staff are only concerned about getting through their work on time. Not the place to go if you are sick

Considering the overwhelming amount of academic fraud as of late in India I seriously think his credentials should be called into question, as well as a look into his work visa.

Very inconsistent. Short clipped answers, as well as answering patients issues with laughter, a head shake, and more notes on the laptop. He is so busy sending in the patient's refill requests that he doesn't actually listen to patients. Expect constant changes in the PA that you will be set up with as they come and go from the office with a very short employment periods. You will be looked at as a number, not an actual person.
