I have been receiving the same exact psychiatric medication prescriptions under Dr. Mehdi's name for the past two years and never met him once. The clinic is pretty sketchy--looks like a front, nothing seems permanent. The NPs who have seen me do not seem to understand American culture (or the concept of queerness). They are brief and just want to get you out the door, barely checking in before prescribing the same thing as always. More than once the office hasn't returned my phone calls, and the receptionists always seem kind of sad. Would not recommend Dr. Mehdi's practice, especially for LGBTQ folks. I honestly think it's a scam.

I felt Dr. Mehdi was very judgmental and very critical did not treat me as a human being honestly he was really not that nice at the end he was kind of nice but the type of medicine he put me on didn't even make sense with the condition I have I would not recommend him and I will not go back to see him
