Dr. Iyer has helped my daughter tremendously. She has only been seeing her for 3 months now but myself and her friends as well as her teachers have noticed a difference. She knows what she is talking about and unlike other psychiatrists that only want to prescribe medicine she actually does her research and inform why and how medication would help her. I would highly recommend!
