in Perth Amboy, NJ |
Real lack of bedside manner. He is rude, disrespectful and tries to till up patients to get them to lash out. This man has not been helpful to me at all.

I've seen Dr Gowda for 10 years; he's great.
Kendall Park, NJ |
Dr. Gowda, is rude and yells. He told me "People like me can't live without medication". He lies in his medical records. I was having a hard time with medication and requested to get off of it and he yelled at me and gave me an anxiety attack. Then proceeded to be rude to my mother who was in the office with me. He blamed all his other problems in the office on us and called rude names. He doesn't listen to you at all. DO NOT come to him as your psychiatrist!
in Bridgewater, NJ |
Very patiently listens to patient's complaints, never shows any frustration, gives patient care more important than the consulting time. Easily accessible. Taking care of my Son for the past seven years.
in Riverside, NJ |
great doctor! would highly recommend to family and friends!
South Brunswick, NJ |
Dr. Gowda is very unprofessional. I had an appointment today. He said my name is not in the system, I explained that called earlier last week and was given this time/day as an appointment. He had no receptionist in the office. He then handed me his business card and told me to call the phone number on it. I told him, but that is you. Why am I going to call you, when you are right here. He said call that number and talk to the manager. aka his wife working from home messing up appts Beware!!

He is crazy, he was always quick n not very professional . Couldn't explain stuff or talk in a professional manner . He would even say rude things like why u do that?but it didn't seem rude to him. one day I called him to ask a question and i asked a few extra questions as in a normal conversation and I couldn't believe what he said to me.. he said "you wanted to ask me one question and your asking me a hundred questions , I don't have time for this"I was horrified n stopped going to him.

in North Brunswick, NJ |
Dr Gowda is an excellent psychiatrist. He is very knowledgeable and the most thorough and organized medical provider I have ever had. He truly cares about his patients. When I first met him, he was very business-like but over time, our rapport has become much more comfortable. I have also recommended him to other people and they have been happy as well.
in North Brunswick, NJ |
I am being treated by Dr. Gowda for almost 8 years. He is very professional, experienced, knowledgeable, thorough & knows what he does. I strongly recommend him.
in Piscataway, NJ |
He is a horrible psychiatrist with no manners and yell at the patients. He also see the patients very quickly, only interested in charging insurance and copayments greedy jerk. His wife the receptionist is stupid and very unorganized screw up on appts and never returns your calls. I definitely think the Dr Gowda needs psyc meds himself. I would not recommend this idiots to no one ever.
