I’ve been seeing and working with Dr. Saifuddin for 3 to 4 years now. I suffer from extreme social anxiety in addition to general anxiety. With her help, I have become a stronger and more capable individual. I have personally recommended her services to my family and dearest friends. I’d recommend her services to anyone needing help or a change in their life. One of the kindest doctors I’ve ever worked with and am very grateful for her.

I have been going here for almost three years now and everyone is amazing. I used to see an NP who sadly isn’t there now but now I see Derek who is great. Ally as a therapist is wonderful and of course Dr. Saifuddin is great. Whichever receptionist you speak to they will always work with your schedule and try to accommodate as best as possible and I have never once had a bad visit which is incredible. Whether you are looking for psychiatry or therapy this office has all of it and all are wonderful. With COVID I have consistently seen Dr. Saifuddin and she truly does her best to keep up to date with each and every patient which is wonderful.

My daughter suffered from anxiety that resulted in depression. Dr. Saifuddin has been astute in her diagnosis, and does not blindly prescribe medication,only just as needed. She is kind,empathetic; very approachable by teens. We count our blessings. Her office staff is very efficient. Dr. Saifuddin is very good at what she does and has great insights and perspectives.

We used Zoom for the tele-conference and calmly discussed my case over the past few months with great success. We discussed medication options, relaxation techniques, etc. Things are going well.

After seeing several Child Psychiatrists in Los Angles that we're not a fit, I was beyond thrilled to meet Sabira Saifuddin MD. To Start her office is immaculate and calming, her office staff polite and efficient and No wait time at all! Dr Saifuddin was extremely knowledgeable in the areas of autism and OCD as well as up to date on the newest medicines and interventions. I strongly reckoned her practice to anyone who has a child with a neurological disorder and whom is sneed of an honest and extremely knowledgeable Psychiatrist.

It’s been 11 years since, I’ve been in control of my own body. The walls i’ve built, the demons I battle and the weight of depression has kept me from living my life for over a decade. One day all the stars aligned, I woke up and said “I think things are going to be okay”. I don’t think about the walls, I no longer worry about the demons, and I feel like the weight was never even there. The next time I’m lost I know I can fallow those stars to your office and you’ll help me find my way home.

I am so thankful for Dr. Saifuddin and her team of Wellness Professionals, couldn't speak more highly about them and my experiences. They have become like a second family to me. The whole team here is amazing at what they do and truly cares about their clients. Dr. Saifuddin provided me with the right knowledge and micro nutrient supplements to get my health and life back. I am so grateful to her and her team.

I. Love. Her. Honestly, it's impossible to find a psychiatrist who isn't cold, reserved and clinical. She's warm, friendly, smart, intuitive and comforting. Her office staff is amazing - kind, helpful and accommodating. I can't recommend her or her practice highly enough. Unfortunately with most great doctors - and they are a rare breed - I suspect she'll be unable to take new patients soon, but try if you need help - she's a gem.
