I had a terrible experience with Dr. Juneja. She was negative, non-transparent, passive aggressive & provocative from the minute I sat down in her office. She blamed me for not wanting to work with me, then FINALLY admitted (which I appreciated) that she was not “experienced enough or equipped” to treat me (I’m 36 and I just found out from this profile that she is a child & adolescent psychiatrist. She didn’t reveal that over the phone & wouldn’t answer why she was inexperienced in person!!!)

First, I felt that she was cold and distant, so when I decided to change doctors and contacted her for my son's records, she NEVER responded. I called her, texted her, and emailed her. She has no staff and does not give appointment reminders. We missed an appointment once and she called, asked if we are close by then said coldly we owe her $160 for the missed visit. I would expect a reminder of that's the policy. Bad bedside manner, rude, shouldnt be in the business of helping people

Dr. Juneja is an excellent Psychiatrist. It took me over a year to find her. I kept finding doctors who were only interested in how many patients they could see in an hour! Dr. Juneja is so compassionate and caring and spends time with you allowing you to realize just how important you are to her. I can’t recommend her enough!!!!!

I had seen one psychiatrist before Dr. Juneja, and I felt he was extremely cold and uncaring of my situation - a very "here's your drugs and leave" feel to him. When I switched over to Dr. Juneja, she took time to listen to my story and understand the background I was coming from. She was extremely warm & inviting, and made me feel like she cared about my progress. I have definitely improved in my behavior and mentality thanks to Dr. Juneja!

Dr. Juneja is a very warm, kind and accommodating physician. She spent 10 minutes on the phone to understand my son's problems and gave us an appointment within a week. She was very mindful of my sons trauma during the appointment, spent a lot of time with him and educated us on different medication options. Very happy to have found her, highly recommend her.

I went to see her twice, and both times she didn't seem to care. Spent only 15 minutes of the initial 45+ minute visit, and she gave me prescription samples provided by a pharmaceutical she's affiliated with. The second time I went to see her, she coldly told me she was leaving the Dryden-Edwards practice and I can't make another appointment with her. She didn't even recommend another doctor. My overall impression was she doesn't care or enjoy her job. Her bedside manner is heavily lacking.
