I've always had issues with my son. I had almost given up. Dr. Dhungana asked what all was going on with him, I said no I'm done with telling doctors what's wrong with him, YOU tell me. She spent the first 30 minutes with him and had all his diagnosis' down to a T, and one I wasn't aware of. She is simply AMAZING at was she does. He became a completely different child almost overnight. I just counted not believe the changes she made for our whole family!! No wonder she is SO BUSY! She is WORTH THE WAIT!

I am a regular patient of Dr Dhungana. People should start living their living and stop harassing such a good psychiatrist like her. She is trying to make a positive change for people by encouraging then to take care of themselves. We should be appreciate that we have one doctor does not only want to dope us up!

If you are the type of patient that is looking for a sympathetic ear or a caring professional to listen to you, look elsewhere. This woman has her own agenda, which is to push her expensive TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) treatments that is the bread and butter of the practice. She says she doesn’t believe in “magic pills” but in the next sentence is preaching the newest, most expensive antidepressant. She has no qualms about making you wait for up to 90min. Very callous and flippant. ??

I started with Serenity on May 29, 2018, feeling hopeless about life. As of today, Aug. 10, 2018, my happiness level has gone 0 to 100%, no kidding. My husband of 45 years, my daughter, her husband and my precious granddaughters are delighted to have me back. When you smile your way through an abusive childhood & your closest sibling commits suicide, Serenity & it's entire staff saved me. Their techniques and staff are miraculous!

Just called today for an appointment and receptionist must really want to not work because she did all she could to deter me from making an appointment. I guess Dr. Dhungana must have plenty of patients and doesn't need more. Don't these doctors realize that their first point of contact person should be a friendly welcoming person...especially in the mental health field. I'm not even the patient, I simply called for information. Good luck, I'll keep looking!

It has been an extremely satisfying experience for myself. I have had many visits to this clinic in Clermont and I will describe this as a tucked away place for happiness. The comfort I feel in my visits and the care I get is indescribable. I wish more clinics could get you this level of satisfaction. Clermont David, H

Dr Dhungana has taken care of my son for the past 7 years. I have great faith in her abilities and over the years my son has shown remarkable improvement in school and in his behavior at other times. My son looks forward to his visits and we are very satisfied with the care she has provided over the years.

If I could give a rating of zero stars, I would. The office staff is rude and insensitive to patients. No one returns phone calls making it extremely hard to schedule appointments. Dr Dhungana herself is money hungry and insists that you see her every 6 weeks even if you aren't experiencing side effects. Do yourself and/or family a favor and look for care elsewhere.

She abruptly took me off my benzo anxiolytic and put me on an SSRI. I returned and said I feel like "I'm in outer space" and she doubled my dose and added another SSRI assuring me that it would level off. It did not. I was required to see her psychologist who threatened my livelihood and professional license. After getting ARRESTED and having my daughter taken by DCF I went to my PCP and he returned me to normal. Never trust somebody who tells you to take a drug that they have not taken. Boo!
