I see a really bad pattern in these reviews. I had the very same problem. In 5 minutes he told me that I am bipolar. Sometimes I was in and out of his office in 2 minutes. He is a horrible doctor. You will more than likely be diagnosed as bipolar and be treated badly. I have a much better doctor now. And no, I am not bipolar.

This doctor should lose his liscence.I have been on a low dosage antidepressant most of my adult life and I'm nearly 50.I have been going through some family issues lately and have been a little bit down and was looking to either increase my dosage or try a different antidepressant. At my very first visit within 5 minutes he wanted to put me on bipolar meds.He must be getting some kickbacks from the bipolar pharmaceutical companies.Wow. Afterwards i have heard from others the same story

My wife has been seeing this licensed drug dealer for Bi-Polar for over a year now. On the initial visit she spent a grand total of five minutes in his office. All of the follow up visits are exactly the same, she walks in he asks if the medicine is working, she answers yes and he hands her a prescription. He does not ask any follow up questions or anything. Now the medicine that he has her on does not seem to be working, but due to the Bi-Polar my wife does not recognize that it is not working.

He interrupted me. He would not let me explain my situation. I never saw him before and in 5 min. he said I was Bipolar. He made assumptions based on very little and incorrect information. I am 59 yrs old, never diagnosed with any psych issues except mild depression. I am a professional and work in health care. I know what a complete evaluation consists of. He did not do that. While waiting in the waiting room, his patients went in and came out fast!

Dr. Atwal helps to make the visits very comfortable and easy. I would recommend him to everyone.
