I've seen Dr Golewale for about 6 months and am very satisfied with the level of care. He is open to new methods and feedback. I would recommend.

I created an account here just to leave a review for Dr. Golewale and his office. The staff are friendly, efficient, and they have come to recognize my voice and learn my meds. This doctor is one of the rare kind that will actually return your phone calls on weekends and talk you off of a ledge. He is patient, he is caring, and he is genuinely vested in the health and well-being of his patients. Not only does he takes the time to explain the science behind illnesses and treatment, but he seems to enjoy 'teaching'. I hate it when providers talk down to others who are not physicians -- Dr. Golewale does not do this at all. Highly recommended!

I saw Dr. Golewale for ADHD diagnosis in 2015. He put me through a barrage of young-child diagnosis instruments and required extensive elementary school documentation that I could no longer access. Wouldn't listen to a word I said and wouldn't diagnose without printed documentation. Completely unsympathetic "gatekeeper" of a doctor.

I have been seeing Dr Golewale for a few months now and everything is going pretty well. I feel he is interested in me as a patient and concerned for my well-being. He always checks to make sure he knows what other medications I am taking. He has made helpful suggestions. I feel he is a good and caring doctor. He does also have a Licensed Social Worker working with him. I did have to see her for an evaluation prior to seeing the doctor. I feel that was a good practice. Highly recommended.

Golewale made sure it was evident that he was uninterested in my issues. He'd ask me a question and I could see the disinterest immediately before I even opened my mouth. He does not return calls. His arrogance really turned me off during my appointment, but him ignoring my call/message was uncalled for.

I was a patient around 2009-2011. One thing that irritated me was that it felt like I was just another client. Very little eye contact, or facing me, always writing something out. It didn't seem like he was paying attention. And after about 10 min. He would suggest to either increase my medication, go off my medication or switch my medication. After some adjustments I had found a good medication dosage that felt right for me but he did not agree so I found a new psychiatrist that would listen.
