I was having an issue with one of the medications I was recently put onn even though I had the Genesight test and this should have been a good medicine for me according to the test. I reached out to Dr Nigams office and at my appointment Dr Nigams office got right in touch with my PCP office and made a game plan. I am confident we, Dr Nigams Office, my PCPs Office and I will get to the bottom of this.

This time I had an appointment with Amy at Dr. Nigam’s office and I am so glad and grateful to have had such a great counseling session with Amy. I left feeling positive and more in control of my mental health and I was able to verbalize so many things that I had been holding inside.

The Telehealth options are very accommodating when you have trouble getting to the office and they are very similar to being in person. I been going here for several years and would highly recommend Dr Nigam and his staff to anyone looking for a new location.

Visits are fairly typical as with any medical facility and every time here is the same. Patients check-in, are required to pay before receiving treatment, have a variable wait time, and then are seen by their provider. Sessions are comfortably predictable and follow a script. My provider will notate my responses to her pre-made questionnaire and then ask me what she should do regarding medication management. In my experience medications can and may be altered each session with the intent of finding an appropriate dosage. Patient-directed care is important so I find that in order to make informed decisions and get the most out of my treatment sessions that it is best practice to research my diagnosis and medication options prior to my visits.

I have been going to Jennifer for five or six years. Jennifer listens to me when I ask for a med change or change of dosage when possible and if that's not possible she tells me why. Jennifer has a great knowledge of the old meds and the new meds, I trust her and would recommend her.

I have been seeing Dr. NIGAM for almost 2 years now, prior to that I had been to other psychiatrists, switching to Dr.N has saved my life! He is the first doc that has actually listened to me and heard my concerns! My depression and anxiety are being well controlled and I am feeling like a better version of myself after his help.

Dr. Nigam, He is a very good doctor. I started seeing him in October, and he knew exactly how to treat my mental health illnesses. I am in a better place mentally. He was the only one that could fix the problem(s). I highly recommend him to everyone!

Dr NIGAM is an excellent psychiatrist. The only reason for the low score is no one ever answers the office phone and messages are not usually returned.

I highly recommend Dr. Nigam to family and friends. He has my best interests at heart. I am a difficult patient because I have been taking psych drugs for over 30 years and have a lot of trouble with side effects, but Dr. Nigam is flexible and takes everything in stride. He is very compassionate. He runs on time, unlike a lot of doctors. He is knowledgeable about medications, even medications that are not psychiatric. There is now an office worker that is dedicated to just answering the phone and returning calls, so phone calls are returned promptly.

Dr. Nigam is by far one of the kindest Dr's I've ever had & thankfully he never tried to pacify me into thinking I'd tried it all & I am who I am... because I'm a much happier & stronger person being his patient! A diagnosis change, medication change, TMS Therapy (which was a HUGE benefit to me) & the knowledge that Dr. Nigam is always open to discuss ANY of my mental health concerns or ideas, makes me feel like we're working TOGETHER on this! That's a wonderful feeling to have when you leave your Psychiatrist's office & it's why I'm so happy with him & highly recommend Dr. Nigam!
