Dr. Sabenahalli really listens and understands my concerns. He does a thorough intake of my condition and how my condition is being managed. He shows he really cares about me and the success at treating my condition. I have recommended him several times. I have been seeing for 5 years and I will continue to see him.

Dr. Sabbenahalli is a very kind and knowledgeable psychiatrist. I was seeing another doctor who had me on nearly 10 medications. He halved that and got me much better. I would definitely recommend him.

HE SEEMED MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF TIME, WHICH WAS ABOUT 10 MINUTES IN HIS OFFICE THAN FINDING OUT ABOUT WHY YOU WERE THERE & HIS LACK OF LISTENING TO THE PATIENT WHEN HE WAS ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT WHY THE MEDS HE GAVE YOU HE THOUGHT WERE THE CORRECT ONES, WHEN ASKED WHY THEY WERE PRESCRIBED, THEY ANSWER WAS BECAUSE I'M THE DR. AND I DON'T CARE WHAT SOMEONE ELSE HAS GIVEN U. IT WAS HIS WAY OR THE HIGHWAY. VERY RUDE !!!
