I changed doctors,only because my previous one was an hour away. I thought he was more convenient with being only 10 min from my job. I was wrong. The bare minimum wait with an appointment is 45 min, and only if you are private pay and only if yoy complain. He makes every excuse for it, but it never changes. I felt like a guinea pig with all the meds he kept changing me to, although I was already on a prescription that worked very well.

in Cleveland, OH |
I've known Dr. Ranjan for over 25 years. I trust his judgement and find him very knowledgeable. He has the ability to find the right treatment that would help them. I find myself in a better state of mind than before. He has held me through the hard times during hospitalizations and he has understood me since a very long time.

Dr. Ranjan has helped me work with my issues and get my life back on track. I feel much better before I met him. I have a new perspective in life and I have whole new vision of life. PHP has given me a family of people who support me and love me unconditionally. No one ever judges you, and they try to cheer you up, when you are feeling low.
in Cleveland, OH |
I misunderstood Dr. Ranjan initially because I couldn't understand what he meant. I wasn't sure about my mental condition, and he explained it to me nice and good. My life has changed for better and healthier. My mental health has improved and is much better than before.
in Cleveland, OH |
I needed to lose weight and asked for a prescription for a weight loss medication but he insisted that I learn to manage my food/diet and control my appetite the natural way instead of medicating me. I think this was the best thing for me because I have other health problems and I need to eat according to a special diet to satisfy the requirements for my illness and this is exactly what is necessary to be on track and/or to keep up with my special diet.

Dr. Ranjan saved my life by giving the right directions in treatment. I am very thankful to my family to bring to Dr. Ranjan. I have become stronger and better than before.

My life was completely on the wrong track with my heroine addiction until I met Dr. Ranjan. After meeting Dr. Ranjan I feel confident, and was able to give a breath of relief to my parents. My parents went from thinking me to be a complete failure to help me able to build a great life. Thanks to Dr. Ranjan for talking to my parents. After I was on the Suboxone program, I have been able to finish my graduation; and the case manager helped me with all the information I need.

Dr. Ranjan has a very good line of counselors, nurse practitioners, case managers and all other staff members. He also treats in addiction and the facility makes them feel proud to come out clean and live a normal life.
in Cleveland, OH |
I was very much afraid that my insurance would be a problem, but thank God Dr. Ranjan takes Molena insurance. Oh! Boy, I am so glad! I was so nervous when I met him the first time. I was scared that being totally honest with him may make him think badly of me. But I was honest and he was so kind praise the Lord. He was so understanding and didn't even make me feel like a loser. I did have to wait a while to see him, but it was worth it. I am on medication right now which is helping so good.
in Garfield Hts, OH |
When I came to Dr. Ranjan, I found a listening ear. He helped get over my anxiety with the best medications and the best set of counselors.
in Garfield Hts, OH |
I was passing by Charak and looked up online. When I walked into the place, I felt like this is the place I want to be at.
in Mentor, OH |
My appointment was at 10:45. An hour and a half later the doctor had left and we were told there was a person there that would be able to prescribe medications if need be. By 1:00 I had not been seen and was told that if I needed medication, I would have to come back. I had to switch my day off for nothing. Every other patient was waiting for hours as well and many left during the time I was there. No respect or professionalism!!!!
in Mentor, OH |
I came here over the span of 9 months and was being treated for bipolar, anxiety, and OCD in conjunction with sleep issues. I tried several combinations of medications to no avail and gave up on getting help completely. One year later, I am just now coming back to find a different doctor and try again. This impacted my entire life and was a horrible experience. The doctor is rude, short, and makes diagnostic and prescription judgement calls in under 2-3 minutes. The office staff is uncivilized.
