Patient Comments (6)
Budd Lake, NJ |
Starts off promising but after a few months you'll be waiting 45 minutes to see him for less than 5 just so he can write you a script. He does not take the patient's concerns over side effects of the medications seriously. The office is terrible to contact/make appointments with. They put you on hold for at least 10 minutes and half the time it disconnects and then you have to start all over. Sometimes their phone system isn't even working.
Sparta, NJ |
Terrible bedside manner. Talks down to you and does not listen to what you have to say. Thinks he knows everything. Wait times are long and he does not even bother to get you when needed. He just yells your name from his office.

In the throws of an psychotic event, Dr. Srinivasan left the psychotic patient to "make a phone call," never to return to the office. He left the consoling, etc. to his therapy/counseling/office staff. During normal office visits, Dr. S. looks to the patient's companion for answers, types on his laptop, and rarely looks at the patient. If you need meds, he's your guy. If you need a compassionate, caring, doctor, please look elsewhere.

He's easy to talk with, has helped me with medication management for 8 years now and counting. Low wait times, hassle free visits.

I felt they misrepresented themselves with the billing. Dr. Srinivasan wants 600 an hour for his services.
in Wattage, NJ |
Has me see him every 60 days. First issue he didn't preauthorize one of my meds insurance wouldn't cover it. Pharmacy called fixed the issue. Then i realize he didn't give me any refills for 2 of my medications. It took me 2 weeks of my pharmacy calling and me calling sometimes multiple times a day for me to get my medications. He finally sends them in . Only to not pre authorize it again going on my 4th week still isn't fixed. I need to call again tomorrow. THIS IS EXHAUSTING. Why do I pay him?
