Northridge, CA |
I've never said this about a doctor, but I would give Dr. Kamat zero stars if I could. He was very condescending. One time i left work early to go to an appointment and he canceled on me 15 minutes before it started for no reason! When I told the receptionist I was in a crisis and asked him to at least call me, he left me hanging. Then he dropped me without giving me a reason after a year. He's the reason I have trust issues with psychiatrists.
Panorama City, CA |
Extremely knowledgeable and consistent with treatment follow-up. I love that there is little to no wait time and his office is always clean.
in Santa Clarita, CA |
Dr. kamat is a great listener and his diagnostic abilities are superior. He really makes you feel comfortable and takes his time with you. The office is very inviting and it shows when you walk in the door. I would highly recommend Dr . Kamat should ever need a psychiatrist.
in Woodland Hills |
Dr. Kamat is a highly qualified, experienced and knowledgeable physician. He has a calming effect on his patients. His knowledge of drugs is excellent. His drug recommendation was a life saver.
in Monrovia, CA |
My past psychiatrist and master of misdiagnosis. Kept me on an elephant dose of ADHD meds to the point where I experienced severe social anxiety, amphetamine psychosis, anorexia and considered my depression "secondary" to my diagnosis when multiple professionals and hospitalizations later proved severe chronic depression and BPD. Plus a rude and unprofessional receptionist (family member of his) to boot who doesn't seem to regard that the patients are entering a psychiatric "treatment" office
in Glendale, CA |
Dr. Kamat has worked with me to get my life back on track. Appointments and location are very easy.
