I once had to wait over an hour past my appointment time, and I had to leave. No one was at the front desk at the point, so I waited there for a while. When I could wait no longer I left. Another time I was told the doctor wasn't there AFTER I arrived for my appointment. I was charged as a NO SHOW both times. The doctor is okay but the front desk staff is either ineffective, understaffed, or both.

I see her for medication management so lately I only have to see her for 10 min every 6 weeks. But when I have had hard times, she has been a huge help. She is very validating and willing to talk about things as much as I'd like.

Fantastic doctor!! I have been to so many other doctors but none of them showed the level of compassion that Dr. Athar has. She's super kind, and very caring and listens to all of my concerns. I already feel way better through her treatment.

Diagnosed by another doctor but think she knows what's right. Does not spend enough time with patients make you feel rushed. Medication is doing harm to the body. Always has an excuse to why she is running behind but only spend 5 minutes with each patient how can you diagnose someone it's so many illnesses that mimic each other but wants you medicated forever do she can get paid psychiatrist are horrible people come to you desperate and need help

I was referred by that this shrink was desperate for new clients. When I called I couldn't get past the rude receptionist who refused to say whether they took my insurance and barked at me whether I wanted an appointment or not. I confirmed with my insurance that she was a provider, called again and this time receptionist refused to book an appointment, out of vindictiveness. Good luck building your practice with staff like that.

Great doctor, very easy to talk to and actually listens to the patient. I have seen a few psychiatrists and hated going, however in my opinion she is the greatest psychiatrist. Excited to see her again.

Dr. Athar is the BEST psychiatrist. I get excited to go.. She made me feel better so darn fast, when I lost faith, a complete 360! She really listens. I wish I could go here for all my needs. For anyone searching online or in desperate need of help-Have hope again because she WILL make it better when you're not even sure it can be fixed. I fully recommend her to u friend, five stars. Secretary Nikita is super awesome, too. -Returning calls ASAP and accommodating appointment needs. Special place!

She is by far one of the most genuine caring doctors I have ever met. I instantly felt comfortable talking to her and you can tell she loves her job. I would recommend her to anyone. She is very personal and even comes to greet you.

Dr. Athar is the kindest person and after seeing multiple psychiatrists, is the only one that I believe cares about my daughter. I can say that I get emotional just thinking about how good she makes my daughter feel. Not only does she spend as much time with us as we need, she even called our pharmacy to handle a problem we had. Her staff is so polite and helpful and there is never a wait to get in. Dr. Athar is what every psychiatrist should aspire to be!
