What People Say About Dr. Mazhar Golewale, MD

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.

Thank you for helping me and guiding me in ways to help teach myself how to finally write what I can finally rest easy with and call proper HTML. I will always be thankful. Good luck fishing to both you and the family! - Brandyn

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.
