What People Say About Dr. Mukesh Patel, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I have been seeing him for over 10 years. He doesn't inquire or ask many questions other than how are you. Seems disinterested at times and refused to refill my prescription once for no apparent reason to me or his staff. He can be pleasant and even funny. He refuses to see me if I do not take antidepressants which I feel are not benefiting me. I talk mostly to Molly Sharp PA and feel like I benefit from her counseling. She is always on schedule whereas Dr. Patel has made me wait

I've been going to the center for over a year and I sometimes see Molly Sharp, PA, when she is filling in and I have never had a good experience with her, she is condescending and confrontational and does not provide a comfortable and safe setting for treatment. I've seen her interaction with other patients as well and it seems as if she gets pleasure from using her authority at the expense of others. The front desk staff is friendly, though there are other employees that are unprofessional

I too had a bad experience with Molly Sharp, she was cold, rude and condescending. You pay a place to get help with addiction by specialists supposedly trained in addictionology and your treated with nothing but judgement. And no this is not an internal voice overshadowing my thoughts telling me I am being judged, this is evidenced by the questions, tonality and overall affect of this practitioner.

I recently had an appointment with dr. Patel and when I got there I was told I couldn't see him that I had see a physician's assistant to my knowledge PA do not have any experience in psychiatric care the woman's name was and Molly Sharp she was very rude and said the way they run things there is the fact that they are only there to dispense medicine. I did not come to see a psychiatrist to get a bunch of pills to turn me into a zombie I truly need someone to talk to. I feel I was misled.
