Despite the long waits, he is the absolute best Psychiatrist I have ever seen. He takes his time and is truly a great listener and uses every tool at his disposal to help choose drugs to make treatment decisions. Then at each visit he listens to see if there is anything to change. He systematically makes changes to only one drug at a time so together you (both) can decide if things are worse or better. One tweak at a time he works WITH YOU to come up with the best treatment plan possible.

The office makes it impossible to have a smooth visit. I have had the staff disrespect me numerous times for just asking a question. I spoke to the doctor about the trouble I was having with his staff and he acknowledged it, but refuses to address the issue. It got to the point of brining in legal counsel, because they refused to refill my son's medication. If your insurance gives you another option apart from this doctor, I would literally run far away from this practice.

Although Dr. Pathak is very good with his treatment, the office staff makes the entire visit unbearable. From calling the office, to arriving and checking in and then waiting...and waiting...and waiting, it's a nightmare. Sitting in a waiting room for 1+ hours (regularly - sometimes closer to 2 hours) is just not right. The staff is rude and the nurses/PA's are incompetent. When they remember to take a blood pressure reading, they do it incorrectly and Dr. Pathak ends up having to do it himself.

He does not care about your health. He has issues this man shouldn't be a doctor.

I've been seeing Dr Pathak for about 4 years. His manner, while sometimes a bit harried, has never lacked for genuine interest in improving the lives of his patients. I've never felt he was in a hurry or not listening to me. Best of all, Dr Pathak treats the whole patient, instead of only focusing on his area of expertise.
