i went to 2 appointments which lasted less than 15 minutes total, yet I was charged $164 copay for services and $300 for a genetic test that I did not ask for and he does not follow. Not a good selection if you want to get to the bottom of your issues, however if you want medication, he seems to be the right person to call. Very disappointed.

In need of assistance, not just medication – Feb 18, 2020

We just relocated to the area.. Trying to find a replacement to an amazing Doctor we had in Indianapolis. My child has ADHD and some behavioral issues. Dr. Thapar met with us for the first time a few months ago. Our first appointment lasted only 15 minutes, and it only lasted that long because he was just offering a laundry list of medications we could try to help my son. I had hoped that he would have more insight into what medications would best treat his ADHD and not exasperate his ODD. It was just pick a drug any drug, so we did and though we had some success, the next visit he wanted my son to now be on an extended release and after sitting down with us for literally 5 minutes and me still talking about finding additional help for his ODD.... he interrupted and said “I already wrote your prescription, you can leave now. I’m not going to refer you to a therapist yet”. I was so frustrated. As a mother to a child with behavioral issues, it is my top priority to find the right care.

He is quick but knowledgeable. I had seen a doctor at Lutheran General that was quick and just 10 minute appointments. this is not unusual these days since they expect people to see a therapist for talk therapy. I liked him more after the second and third time. He was always very nice. It takes time and his job though is to prescribe medicine. He is smart so can diagnose quick

Today was my 1st visit with Dr. Thapar and he was nothing but kind, understanding and actually listened to me. Never once made me feel bad for what I was going through. This is my 1st ever appointment like this and I'm very glad I chose him.

Dr. Thapar, escorted us into his office. Spent about 5 minutes listening to why we were there. Jumped to conclusion within timeframe without digging into the person there for psych evaluation. What a waste of time and money!

Dr. Thapar is a really nice man, compassionate and I think knows his stuff about medications and getting you as "normal" as possible. These 1 star reviews are from some mentally ill person who didnt get their way. I have never waited, in fact there are numerous times he has fit me in early.I suffer from Major Depression and finally feel , dare I say Happy? He is not a psychologist- if you need talk therapy see one. He is a medical doctor who prescribes medicine. You wont find a nicer guy .

Incredibly long wait time, for less than 15 minutes with Dr. Support staff is, at best, borderline competent.

He only cared about prescribing medication and charging me. Never prescribed blood tests after years of prescribing the same medicine. He would tune out and not listen, getting very distracted after speaking to him for 5 minutes. On one occasion after I finished a comment about my issues he replied with, "Is there any air coming out of that vent over there?" He once told me he was thinking about buying an apt. bldg. and asked if I wanted to rent a room from him! So glad I moved on to another dr

If you know even a little about psych. Don't go to this quack! His staff is not friendly and he reschedules constantly. Wait time is a joke for five mins and a load of drugs that do not work and turn u into a zombie. Don't let him just give you anything. Research first!!

Horrible! Wait time long! Staff not friendly whatsoever. The Drs. Are a joke. Wait a half hr for 5 mins in and out like cattle. I begged for help that the meds were not working. The dr did nothing. The next time in I told him I am afraid for my life. And I guess in fear for his practice instead of actually doing the right thing I then received a letter saying he will no longer be able to be my dr. He doesn't care to help. He cares about $$$. And his methods are unhealthy And unhelpful.

Do no go here. I went for two years because he was the only one who took my insurance. He regularly yells at people and makes fun of their illness in front of everyone in the waiting room.

If I could leave negative stars I would. This office only cares about making money. They are terrible at getting back to patients, and instead helping patients they cause them more stress. I would not send my worst enemy to this practice. These doctors do not even know what is going on in their own office.

The office staff is awful. They don't care about your time. The doctor was dismissive. I asked him what side effects I could expect from my medications. He said only good side effects. I had to ask my pharmacist instead.
