I found Dr. Karbakhsh to be friendly, empathetic, knowledgeable and a very strong patient advocate. Appointments were always within just a few minutes of the scheduled time and were never rushed. She was receptive to my input on treatments. She was always quick to pick up on things that I hadn't specifically mentioned but were bothering me none the less. I highly recommend Dr. Karbakhsh.

My experience with Dr. Karbakhsh has been a very positive one. I am very thankful for her treating me. She is knowledgeable, respectful, and kind. She truly earned my respect as a patient under her care, and as an RN. They say that doctors and nurses can be tough because they question everything. Well I did, and she most professionally responded. I thank you.

She really listens and cares about how you feel about certain medications, she doesn't force any medication on you that you are not comfortable with. That shows her care and concern, furthermore I have found her trustworthy.

I don't want to specifically state the treatment my family has received, but I can honestly say Dr. Karbakhsh has really changed my family's life for the better. I could never truly express the gratitude I have for what she has done for my family. If you really need help, she is the only doctor I can honestly recommend.

Having moved here in 2016 was unfamiliar with this specialty. Surprisingly, it took a lot of time on-line to find a doctor of this specialty that would accept insurance. I am pleasantly surprised to say how very much I like seeing Dr. Karbakhsh. She was able to make me feel comfortable talking to her on my first, and every visit after. After the first 30 days, I felt so much better and feel I am getting myself back.

I saw Dr. Karbakhsh on a recommendation from my regular doctor. I had no hope of her being able to help me since I was in such a bad state of depression. I went to see her anyway as I had nothing to lose. She was warm and compassionate and really felt confident that she could help me if I was just willing to try again. I began on a new regiment of medications that she prescribed. Within 5 days my constant crying was gone. Within 10 days my depression was gone. Not just better - gone.

I felt comfortable with Dr. Karbakhsh the first time I went to see her. It is difficult to share certain aspects of your life with another person, but she put me at ease right from the beginning. She has helped me manage my anxiety and depression and for that I am so grateful. I am able to work with less anxiety and I am happier in general. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Roya was very perceptive in isolating my mental health needs and had vast experience in treatinments. She began a successful medication program and suggested life changes and strategies to enhance their effectiveness. I have been with her for 18 months and highly recommend her as a psychiatric specialist. My world is back to normal.

I am a 58 year old male and have had a panic, anxiety disorder for over 10 years, my doctor for many years retired last year and i was referred to Dr Karbakhsh, she prescribed me a new medication that the previous doctor did not, and because of that i am now sleeping more than 5 hours a night. I have found the doctor to be very helpful willing to listen and give me the proper amount of attention. I could not be happier to have found DR Karbakhsh.

Awefule, I went for therapy and only thing that I received was medication. I was depressed but she prescribed my some medication that made me even worst.

Only cares about $. So Unprofessional and unorganized. Aside from many incidences, I want to point this out. My insurance would not fill my one month prescription, and requested that my doctor prescribed me three months worth of meds. After a week of nothing filled, I had to call back and remind her. An whole week later she still hadn't written the prescription, and I had to hear from my pharmacy that she refused to write it until I made another appointment. I am now forced to quit cold turkey.
