I was referred to Dr. Gupta for Electro-convulsive therapy (ECT). I was told by Dr Gupta that ECT was safer than child birth. Statistically 3x more people die a year from ECT complications than in child birth. (According to the CDC: 700 childbirth complication deaths a year compared to the 2100 deaths related to ECT. This was just one of the many lies I was told to convince me to agree to ECT. If you are considering ECT first educate yourself of the risks. ECT is still experimental and has no standard of practice. ECT can be made much safer if you choose a Dr. that doesn’t treat you as if you are a lab rat. I did 5 of 12 treatments before stopping due to severe symptoms that I’m now learning was brain trauma. Dr Gupta personally called me 6 times attempting to scare me into completing my treatments. I am 24 and permanently disables because of his malpractice. If I could give 0 stars I would.

For specializing in geriatric psychiatry, one would think Dr Gupta would have developed patience, compassion and understanding for the elderly. Not only is he lacking in these skills, he has little if any respect for them. He dismissed my dear frail mother and directed his questions only to me. He tried to rush us out after 5 minutes but I refused to leave until my concerns were addressed. He has pushed ECT on us at each visit without any regard or empathy for our worries about the negatives, such as significant memory loss. The reason I gave him 2 stars instead of 1 is that we are grateful that the meds he prescribed have been working when almost everything else has failed. He is also not a proponent of over medicating.
