Dr. Vasavada as well as the staff are personable, professional and always kind! Making appointments or rescheduling is never a problem. When they say they'll call back, they do! I've been seeing Dr. V for many years now & can't say enough about how passionate & encouraging he is. In beginning he worked with me to find the right balance of meds for my condition and I can honestly say my life is nothing like it was when I walked in Lakeside years ago! So grateful to Dr. V & staff!

Dr Vasavada made me feel instantly welcomed and at ease. He was very easy to talk with and open up to. He listened intently and explained everything in terms I easily understood. I was incredibly impressed with him. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor. I highly recommend him.

After seeing a number of psychiatrists in the area, including at Mesa Springs and Texas Health, for my severe depression, I still had serious depression. Then I decided to pay the cost to see Dr. Vasavada. He is one of the best psychiatrists in the DFW area, and I’d argue the best. I have been a difficult case, not responding to treatment from many doctors. He helped figure out a correct diagnosis that all the other doctors had failed to consider. My depression has lifted thanks to him!

I continue to be amazed at Dr. Vasavada's passion for his career and those he helps. He has helped me through a very difficult time. Never gave up on me and always exhibited patience, kindness and professionalism. I would recommend him to anyone seeking this type of care. I drive 3 hours one way to see him. Worth every second.

Dr V is INCREDIBLE!!!! He really does have a gift for seeing issues that are missed by others and just knowing what needs to be done. He is truly a partner in the process of healing. Always checking progress and adjusting as needed. His only agenda is helping his patients and you can really feel that from him. Unreservedly I recommend him to anyone who needs his help. You'll know you made the decision to trust Dr V.

Dr. Vasavada is the best physician I've had in any field (and I've had a lot!) He's a straight-shooter, knows his nueropharmacology and can laugh with the best of them at the appropriate time. But he knows when things are off and makes adjustments accordingly. I trust no one else to assist me with stabilizing my brain chemistry. Best in the business in my book.
