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.

Dr. Thapar is very caring, always asking about my family and remembers my children's names. He is very knowledgeable about his field and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Thapar charges insurance providers for services he isn't providing, adding extra time to the bill, and overprescribes. This is an awful doctor with horrendous wait times, rude office staff, and doesn't really care to hear what you have to say, unless you can say it in under 10 minutes. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Is there a less than 1 star? Prescribed medications not covered by medicare and no follow through by the office to help get coverage needed.

He seems disinterested and doesn't accept many insurances. After the first visit, your paying 100 bucks almost to talk to a NURSE NOT the DOCTOR. And you only see them for about five minutes, IF. The staff is very friendly, however, and once you get past the one month first visit wait, you can make appointments fast. Wouldn't recommend unless you were extremely disperate for mental health help
