Dr. Sarcar has helped me tremendously. He is very professional, and nonjudgmental. There is basically nothing you can say that will suprise him. He makes you feel unashamed regardless of the situation. This makes receiving treatment easier, as you are more likely to show up to your appointments, and be honest while you are there.

Initially seemed like a good fit. He ended up refusing to write any more prescriptions or wean me off of the medication due to a unplanned pregnancy. I had been on the medication for years and without being weaned off I could have miscarried. It is very irresponsible on his end as a doctor. Expect being charged ridiculous fees without warning or invoice. $30 to call in prescriptions. 10 minute visit for 125, 125 charged if rescheduled. Dr refuses to call patients back. DON'T GO!

I found Dr Sarcar extremely condescending and arrogant. He spoke over me and made quick assumptions about my personality and lifestyle that were unfair and hurtful. He pressed me on very sensitive questions when I clearly stated I wasn't comfortable. I left my appointment in tears. He also requires a $375 deposit in order to continue care. Even if I could afford it, I'll never go back.

I have been through multiple pdocs and none were a good fit. However, Dr S is different. He allows me to make some of my own decisions regarding my treatment but also makes sure I understand things from a professionals stand point. I'm sure he isn't the doctor for everyone since he is incredibally laid back but that's what makes me like him. He is just a regular person who happens to understand and know how to treat bipolar. He has made my quality of life better.

This doctor did help somewhat at one point, and is good at what he does. But also does not seem as open minded as a doctor should be. In my opinion seems like he may struggle with being stuck in the "Im a doctor, and Im right" mentality, even at the cost of a patients personal health. Made me feel like every other patient, that he didn't have time for. Would not recommend to anyone with legitimate mental health concerns.

Best psychiatrist/therapist I have ever encountered. I was a social worker and therapist for 15 years of my professional life so I have experience with many social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists on a professional level as well as a few on a personal level. Dr. Sarcar is down to earth and very focused on helping people work through their issues. He is also very intelligent without the arrogance you see in a lot of professionals. I would highly recommend him.

Excellent doctor. Is very personable and easy to talk to. Had several other doctors before him who seemed a little out of touch with today's society, its nice to have a doctor with a good understanding and grasp on that. Wouldn't recommend any one other then him.
