My son's psychiatrist retired and we saw Dr. Nirupama Natarajan. She wanted to change medications because she did not like the ones that my son was on. It has taken years to get my son's medication right and we can't change it because someone doesn't like a med. If it works for the patient it should be used. Someone was supposed to call to set up the next appointment but didn't. Labcorp did not receive the request for blood work and neither did I.

See Someone Else If You Can
Awful! I religiously see her EVERY 2 months and the ONE TIME I forget to make that follow up appointment she refused my refill request even though there is an appointment on the books. I work in a very busy medical office and work Dr’s office hours so it’s hard to make it every 2 months but I do it! She is consistently late (over an hour most times) and she asks the same 5-10 questions every visit. Fortunately I am doing great and solely see her to get meds.

This doctor has had trouble connecting with me via Telehealth repeatedly. She is often late and then says she's been calling while I'm IN THE WAITING ROOM FOR over half an hour. This doctor does not seem to care. No sign of interest, no new topics of discussion, just a very quick non-assessment, and goodbye.

I have no idea how a person that calls themselves a mental health doctor can be so dismissive and cold. When trying to explain my mental state and current life situation to her, she completely dismissed any relevant information I gave to her and would automatically assume things about my life. Even explaining to her that I wanted to explore other options she appeared to almost laugh at me for it. I never felt taken seriously by this doctor and all she wants to do is up dosages on ineffective drugs and move on to her next paycheck. I sincerely hope no one else has to go through this experience with their Psychiatrist and I hope that anyone reading this review will consider other options.

She is HORRIBLE! Doesn’t listen or care what you have to say! Interrupts ALL THE TIME! What kind of MONSTER doctor prescribes medication only to call the pharmacy and cancel it same day because you no longer want to see her. The office assistants Olivia and Trina are RUDE and CONDESCENDING!! Absolutely HORRIBLE place! Don’t waste time or money here!

The absolute worst medical “Dr. “ I have ever seen. I wouldn’t recommend her as a veterinarian for a dying dog. I told her I was depressed On our second telephone meeting and 15 minutes later four Police Officers were at my front door tying to take me to a “ Special facility“. A psychiatric hospital. Unless you want to be unlawfully imprisoned I was suggest swiping left on this sawbones. Good luck in your search but please keep searching.

I've never seen a psychologist so disinterested in their patient's well-being. Her questions were rapid-fire and she only seemed interested in getting me on an anti-depressant so her office could keep charging me every time I came back to get my Rx refilled. She was totally dismissive of my feelings and the reason I came to the office in the first place.

Worth psychiatrist I have ever had in my life. She will not give you refills because she expects you to go every month just so she can charge you. Don't got to her. She will waste your time. She doesn't even listen to you. I really think that all she cares about is money.

She makes me come in monthly for no reason and she is always running late. She's also very pushy on medicines, last visit she asked if I needed any more pills for public speaking, crowds, sleep, ect. but I did not mention any of these issues. If you're looking for someone to give you pills and send you on your way then she is the one for you. If you want someone to help you find the RIGHT meds for you, skip her. She also upped my medicine after I stated I was feeling good on the current dose...

I would NEVER recommend this dr to ANYONE! Either she or her office staff are inept and can't keep an appointment to save their lives. She has ARRIVED at her office 30 minutes later than my scheduled appointment and is consistently running late when she does actually happen to be there. If she were a stellar physician it MIGHT be excusable, however she is NOT! She acts like she knows nothing about me. After 5+ visits she stills asks the same questions about what college I go to...read some notes

Dr. Natarajan was generally disinterested with my issues and brushed me off as a fool sometimes. She loved to prescribe medication and oftentimes acted almost like a 'pill-pusher'. She seems to care less about her patients and more about her own 'interests'. Truly unethical practices.

Not very personable. In a time of turmoil, you would think a Dr. could relate or try too. She does not. The staff is nice but would not recommend her at all.
