Dr. Lakshamanan is an excellent doctor. If I told you all the positive things about Dr. Lak it would be a book. I saw Dr. Lak (nickname) for at least 20 years. He saw me through good times and bad. I trust him immensely...I highly recommend Dr. Lak...

Liar and judgemental. Will ask you probing questions, force his medical plan on you and if you don’t accept he will drop you as a client, call the police on you for a mental check and then lie about the conversation had on documentation in order to protect himself. Don’t work with this doctor, he is not understanding nor compassionate.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lakshmanan for 23 years. He has seen me at my very worst as well as my improvement over the years. He listens to me with great intrest and care. He researches and goes to seminars to continue his education. He offers information and refers to educated and understanding councilors that offer solutions to help you. He is very positive physician. He stays up to date on medication and the changes in distribution so he can offer the best treatment. I cannot say enough about his care for my wellbeing. Thank you Dr Lakshmanan for the care, patience and understanding. Also for taking extra time during my times of need and truly listening to me.

Dr. Lakshmanan has been treating me for over 10 years! To say he is an excellent doctor is an understatement. He cares about my wellbeing and educates me on the medication he prescribes. As well as gives me methods to handle stress without medication. He takes all my concerns seriously and we talk regularly about how I’m feeling. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without him. I’m super thankful to have Dr. Lakshmanan as my doctor! ~ Amanda

I have been a patient of Dr. Lakshmanans for over 10 years. He was the first physician to correctly diagnosis and treat me. He did not just throw medication at my condition, instead, he educated me and gave me resources to review in order to help me better understand obsessive-compulsive anxiety disorder. He has encouraged me to build a strong support system and to try alternate forms of treatment like regular exercise and meditation. He routinely asks for my opinion on my treatment and takes my thoughts and concerns into consideration. He has been a huge blessing to me and my family.

Dr. Lakshmanan is board certified for a reason! He wants to help and lead his patients into healing without hurting them in the process. He is genuine and thoughtful on a higher level than some Doctors that I know. That’s why I will follow him wherever he goes. I can’t say goodbye so easily to a soul that’s so compassionate as he ??. Blessings unto him and his family!!!!!!

I was recommended to see Dr. Lakshmanan by my counselor and family practitioner to discuss changing medication. So, I called the office to schedule an appointment and I was told I had to take a 10-15 min question interview that would be looked over by the Dr. and then decided whether he would see me or not. After a week and half I received a phone call back that they were sorry to inform me but they couldn't except me that I needed to see a doctor affiliated with inpatient facility care.
