Thankful I'm not suffering from debilitating mental illness! Dr. Gowda spent max of 30 minutes 1st visit, suggested I get a new job, then dug around for most recent pharm rep coupon & wrote script. Next 8 to 10 visits, I paid $50 co-pay to share 5 mins of awkward small talk & get a fresh script. Never more than 1 mo. of meds, ensuring his $50/visit per mo. Never required an EKG, nor took my blood pressure, but still wrote me stimulant script w/no med history. Wish I had read more reviews!!!

I can list a hundred things about Dr.Gowda and everyone would be positive. I've battled metal health issues since I was 14 and it took me until the age of 34 to find a doctor who genuinely cares about me and has taken so much time to work with me to finally get a combination of medications that work for me. Most doctors will give you what you want because it's all about money, Dr.G is not that doctor, he is about pt care first and foremost and that rare. He has made a positive impact on my life.

I have been to couple of other providers before, but I was able to get correct diagnosis and Dr Gowda was finally able to get me on the right medications. I have much better quality of life, thank god. Very Skilled Psychopharmacologist and also is caring and understanding. good office staff too.

After waiting over an hour to see Dr. Gowda, he only met with me for about 10 minutes. He did not listen to anything I had to say and repeatedly told me that I need to lose weight; part of me wanted to tell him to take a look in the mirror. He was eating during my entire appointment, not that it was a long one. I went back to give him another chance, everyone has bad days. He again repeatedly told me that I need to lose weight and acted like that would solve all my problems.

After several visits with Dr. Gowda, I have made substantial progress with my health, owing most of the success to the exceptional level of professional health care & understanding and recommendations I have received from Dr. Gowda. He is a true Health Care Provider, in every aspect of professional health care, and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to one in need of such.

Taking the jump from talk therapy to incorporating medications was not easy however, Dr. Gowda took the time to understand my particular situation and. came up with a plan to get me back on track. I can not thank him enough for that. I highly reccomend to anyone seeking psychiatric care to pay him a visit, it is worth every second of your time.
