Dr. Hovav truly saved my life and allowed me to actually start LIVING. I was misdiagnosed and over medicated for a number of years. Within one year I received my proper diagnosis, had only a handful of bumps in the road with adjustments, but I felt like a normal human for the first time in my life, I’ve been happy and functional and so successful this last year. I wouldn’t be where I am today, as healthy as I am today without this wonderful doctor. Always friendly, listens intently, gives multiple options before throwing out medications, and also counts on you to put the work in. Managing my mental health became a team effort, never once have I felt like a bother. Truly so so thankful for her.

I can’t express in words how grateful I am to Dr. Hovav and Roni for the extremely excellent care I have received at Lifetime Insight. I was on 5 psychiatric meditations before my first appointment with Dr. Hovav. None of the medications I was on were designed for bipolar disorder. Dr Hovav has managed to prescribe 1 medication for me. Vraylar has been a miracle med for me! I haven’t felt this well since I had to go off Lithium. I appreciate her expertise and compassion.

Finally someone who listens and doesn't rush you out of the office like just another number. I really appreciate her understanding and ability to work with me on what I need, and at the same time she tells it like it is and doesn't sugar coat the things that are sometimes tough to hear, that's exactly what I need - not someone to just give me what I ask and kick me out the door, I want honest and straightforward doc to tell me what I need to do to get better.
