Dr. Nishendu Vasavada, MD
I am a board certified psychiatrist as well as ASAM certified Addiction specialist. I am a Distinguished Life Fellow of American Psychiatric Association. I have been in private practice since 1980. I have worked extensively with a wide variety of conditions. Currently I am not accepting insurance but I can help patients file their insurance. What this means is that I can spend more time with my patients, especially during the first visit. I reserve enough time to spend with the patient so that I can get better understanding of their situation. I work with two other psychiatrists, a psychologist, and several therapists. Our office also provides most advanced treatment of depression (Trans Magnetic stimulation or TMS) along with laboratory testing. We also have outpatient counseling for chemical dependency and related problems.

Dr. Vasavada Says:

When a patient is sitting in front of me, I worry about that patient. That means that sometimes I do run behind but when you enter my office, you are the most important person sitting in front of me! 

Currently I handle all my patients myself as against using a mid level provider or "physician extenders". 

I usually return calls at the end of the day.

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.

Lewisville, TX |
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.
Frisco, TX |
Dr. V is a life saver and I can't say enough about how he has been invaluable to my mental health. No one better!!

in Denton, TX |
The doctor is very engaged diagnostically. The more information you can share with him… The better off you will be in the long run. I have found him and his staff to be amazingly accepting and easy to work with.
in Dickinson, TX |
There are no words to say enough good about this doctor. He was my son's doctor initially for ADHD. Subsequently, 25+ years ago, he additionally became my doctor & has continued to treat me. This online field doesn't provide enough room to detail all my good experience with Dr. Vasavada. Briefly I trust this doctor implicitly. He has been my doctor during dome difficult times. My wellbeing has ALWAYS been his priority. I trust him with my life & welfare.
in TX |
I'm disappointed. I'm taken aback that this is the direction things are going. I just don't feel comfortable talking to him with out being misunderstood. I account for some of that because I am impulsive esp. speaking before I think about the question especially when I am nervous. He changed my diagnosis with out thoroughly talking to me about it and the symptoms. I found out about the diagnosis through a third party before looking at my records. I wouldn't have known to look otherwise.
in Dallas, TX |
I have been seeing Dr. Vasavada for about 1 year. He is thoughtful, attentive, and helpful. He is quite intelligent, and clearly thinking and observing/observant. I like him quite a lot as a Dr, and he has helped me quite a lot. Great Dr.
in Carrollton, TX |

Very respectful of your time and perceptive of your needs. Positive and encouraging, easy to talk with. Always have had a good experience.
Very thorough, always takes enough time with each client. Dedicated physican.

Dr. Vasavada says...

I get most of my patients through word of mouth and referrals from therapists. 

I treat adults and adolescents. 

I treat or can provide evaluation for most psychiatric conditions that can be managed as out patient. 

I can provide evaluation and treatment for chemical dependency and alcohol related problems. 

Some times the best thing I can do for a patient is to point them in the right direction for further treatment because of my knowledge and experience. 

Dr. Vasavada says...

Having years of experience and availability of multiple providers, I am able to provide the most comprehensive set of services that very few other practices can do because I have access to every thing from sleep lab to TMS under one roof.
