I survived this dangerous doctor. It is troubling that the AntiDepresssents and Antipsychotic pills he prescribes here are the very cause of the symptoms themselves, especially as you try to come off them. Just like the opioid crisis, psychotropic drugs are also misleading and dangerous as are the "professionals" who give them out without warning you of the high risks involved and strong probabilities of poor outcomes, including insomnia, akithesia, homicidal/suicidal thoughts and actions, etc, They are also linked to the mass gun incidents across our country. These poisons disrupt your neurons and poison your mind and body. I will Keep sharing my experience to warn others and continue to sue the reckless doctors and pharmaceutical companies who harm the public.

Awesome doctor if you want someone who doesn't care about you and who will prescribe you literally anything you ask for.

I'm still alive, no thanks to Dr. Prasad. I told him that I'd had adverse reactions to meds in the past. He promised that he'd be available if I had any problems with the antidepressants he was prescribing. He wasn't. The meds made me suicidal. Couldn't reach Dr. Prasad. When I eventually heard back it was from his assistant to cancel our follow-up appointment. I'm alive because of the support of others. I urge others to avoid this doctor.

Let me start off by saying that I have never wrote a review in my life- but I thought this was necessary. Met with him for a total of five minutes. Zero motivational interviewing or assessment skills. I felt forced to talk- conversation did not flow, nor was there an effort to make it flow. It was question after question. I felt like just another patient. Really fit into the description of a stereotypical psychatrist. Walked out feeling unheard and sad.

Dr. Prasad cares about one thing and one thing only, making money and writing scripts. My friends call him the hollywood doctor that will give you anything you want. However, if you really need a dr that cares enough to actually listen then this guy is not your dr. Recently went to him to express concerns with my significant other about the prescriptions not working well for him and needing a modification of sorts. He was dismissive and argumentative despite the serious concerns I expressed.

I went in for concerns about ADD. I spoke with a PA who used the phrase, "what we normally do here is start with Abilify and klonopin and work from there." I spoke with Dr. Prasad for less than five minutes, which was spent literally trying to coerce me into accepting bipolar drugs based on family history---they had nothing to do with why I was there or what I was saying. I had to insist just to get him/the PA to consider treatment for ADD. I would not recommend.

Dr. Prasad is a very sincere doctor. He has an ability to connect and understand what you are dealing with. He listens to what you have to say. Then he works with you for the best plan of action. He makes you feel comfortable and is never pushy. Dr. Prasad has repeatedly made himself available after hours. He cares about his patients and I am thankful.

Our college-age daughter was referred to the Clarity Clinic. Our daughter has substance abuse issues and Dr. Prasad and his much too inexperienced team continue to treat her as a type of bi polar. She was prescribed both Klonapin and Adderall, which she then misused and has now been expelled from her university due to misusing these two drugs. I had to BEG to have her see one of their addiction counselors.Our next step is an intervention.
