    Dr. Ghelani has helped change my life and worked diligently with me to get my mental health back to were it should be. Before I started meeting with Dr. Ghelani I was in a bad place but, he has worked with me over the last year and truly been such a blessing. He is patient and very understanding, he worked with me on my medication as well as daily routines and now I feel better than ever. I highly recommend Dr Ghelani and would to anyone. 5 out of 5 stars!!

    Dr. Ghelani seems to be a very kind and sincere person. He has been treating my young adult son and my son really likes him and feels comfortable working with him. Because of the awkward situation of having an "adult" son who needed my help getting things arranged for treatment, there was some confusion initially about how the communication for appointments was to work but I think that has been sorted out. Pretty sure that would have been true with any provider though and is more a reflection of our situation than anything else. Dr. Ghelani took the initiative to follow up on that issue, which I greatly appreciate.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Ghelani’s for some time and he is excellent. He has treated my children as well. I have seen many psychiatrists over 20 years as I my occupation requires frequent relocation. He is the best I have seen. My diagnosis was never correct and therefore impossible to treat. He worked through my family history and my current issues and made the correct diagnosis and is treating the condition very well. I will be forever grateful for his care. Highly recommend.

    My husband and I are doing well because of Dr. G's recommendation to get psychiatric assesment and medication treatment. He is our grandsons doctor. He helped our grandson wih ADHD treatment. His proactive counseling to encourage us getting on meds saved our marriage.
