Really focuses on getting the person stable rather than throwing prescriptions at you. I was overmedicated by a previous psychiatrist and she helped me wean off all but one that I told her I wouldn't part with. More stable than ever and I am so grateful. She is always so patient and compassionate.

I saw Dr. Kochhar, We talked for about 3 minute and she didn't want anything to do with me. I left and wondered what I did wrong? Very rude, very abrupt.

I liked Dr. Kochhar when I first met her. I returned for a second visit, following a hospitalization, and she was so unprofessional and completely humiliated me that I will never return to her or any other Dignity Health Physician.
