I've been seeing Dr. Dholakia for over a year now and is the best provider I've had to date. He is knowledgeable, caring, and feels like a partner. The wait times are always very short and the staff is nice.

Dr Dhalakia sends out a review request after the first appointment! In this line of works that’s not near enough time to properly evaluate his services! Now I understand the over inflated five stars! So sorry we trusted in him to care for our child.

Dr. Dholakia has been our son's doctor for 3 1/2 years and we trust him 100%. He cares about the children, he understands, listens, and offers solutions. We have a great pediatrician but I wouldn't trust anyone other than Dr. D. to manage his medications. Very thankful for him. We are blessed to have found him. He is worth the drive from Volusia County...........

Dr. Dholakia is a amazing Dr. He takes his time to listen and understand me. He was able to tell a lot more about me by observing me and when I talk to him. He if efficient in answering all the questions and concerns with everything and anything. He simply is awesome and will continue to see him and keep Dr.Dholakia as my primary Physician. I am glad to have met him and he saw me under the 10mins and took his time during my first evaluation. The staff and Dr. Dholakia are all very understanding and helpful and always get welcomed with a great smile n care. He is very efficient in his work. He cares for all his patients.

My daughter began struggling with anxiety and depression in the fall of 2016, and it took a serious toll on her desire to be alive. I reached out in desperation to several professionals, not expecting a rapid response, if any. Dr. Dholakia made himself available immediately. He took time to carefully listen to my daughter and to us, then provided valuable feedback that included immediate action plans. Knowing that Dr. Dholakia genuinely cared about her well-being kept my daughter going. Had it not been for his extraordinary knowledge, compassion and support, I do not know if she would be here today. I am humbled and deeply grateful for all he has done. My daughter still sees Dr. Dholakia as her treatment is periodically adjusted. She continues to improve under his care and is adjusting well to college life, something we didn’t remotely think possible just a couple of years ago.

Dr. Dholakia is deeply knowledgeable and open minded. He's also incredibly intelligent and really listens to the patient before jumping to a diagnosis. You get the impression he wants to help the people he comes across. He's helped our family immensely. He is the real deal and I would highly recommend him. His staff is also excellent and the office is comfortable and clean.

Dr. Dholakia is hands-down one of the most thorough practitioners I know in the diagnostic arena for the gamut of mental health issues. He is conservative, practical and systematic in his approach with a genuine concern for his patients welfare. I came to see him as an adult after having been treated by countless others with minimal progress. He has fleshed out the underlying problems that went years undetected. He is one of a kind.

Dr. Dholakia is amazing! He listens and really figures out the best ways to help without just giving medication. That was very important to me because I didn't want to put my child on medication unless I absolutely had to. He explains everything thoroughly and is a great person to have on our team!! He has really helped change my son's life for the better and my son loves going to see him. He is always available to us and you get to talk directly to him when needed! He is the best!!

Here, I finally found a psychiatrist interested and committed to treating my whole child, not to just dispense medication. Dr. Dholakia is friendly, informative, and willing to answer all questions and listen to the child’s ideas. He is also happy to work with other providers to ensure great care across all disciplines.

After years of going to many different drs. for my OCD I finally found Dr. Dholakia who really does treat OCD & knows the correct treatment. He always listens to me & my concerns. I’m very comfortable talking with him. Dr. D. explains what he plans & explains the benefits and risks of the medication involving me in all of the decisions. My quality of life has improved tremendously. I highly recommend Dr. Dholakia
