Easy to schedule with and always pleasant to talk to. I’ve found that he spends a reasonable amount of time with me and addresses my concerns. I think he’s been a good Dr. for me because I prefer a degree of self guidance in my care, he may not be the right fit for people who need more direction and attention. Always non-judgemental too- I’m sort of a flake as a patient and he’s never once said anything negative to me about missed appointments etc.

Dr. Saxena is knowledge but spends most of the time talking about himself. He is smart if you want to be treated with Ayurveda instead. He is never on time and over books consistently.

DONT WASTE YOUR TIME. I went to see Dr. Saxena for anxiety, depression and ADD symptoms. He shamed me for another health issue. I tried to redirect my needs and he continued to shame me. I left in tears. What kind of psychiatrist would shame a patient in the first appointment? HORRIBLE!!!

Dr Saxena is great. He's very straightforward and helpful. If you're looking for an hour long conversation to talk about your problems, find a psychologist/therapist instead.

Dr. Saxena overbooks patients to the point where people are standing and sitting on the floor in his waiting room. He will provide you with a prescription with less than 20 minutes of diagnosis in which he asks you to present your ailments and responds with one of the drugs offered by the large number of pharmaceutical companies which pay him to sell their products. Check openpaymentsdata dot cms dot gov, a government run website, to verify for yourself. This is a doctor I'd send my enemies to.
