I was a post-COVID patient and everything was tele-healthed for depression. Only the first visit was on logged video conference. No ask of weight, height or anything asked by Naqvi himself to verify what was given to the secretary. Everything after that was a 2-4 minute phone call where I was not so subtly asked what type and strength of medication I wanted. He didn't care for a description of how I was feeling outside of side-effects. I eventually found help by other professionals, but good grief.

told a patient there was no hope for them when they asked to be put on a different medication for anxiety because their current one didn't seem to be working. this man doesn't deserve to have a medical license if that's how he treats struggling patients.

Saw me for less than 5 minutes and did not seem at all interested in what I was going through. Walked out feeling worse than I did going in. Probably my worst experience with a mental health professional.

I read the reviews here and I still figured maybe he would be nice. Well, the man is a jerk. He never let me finish a sentence and was rude. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

This man is the worst. He does not care about his patients. He's arrogant, rude and he should be looked into. That whole place is a scam.

I have been to many mental health professionals and Dr. Naqvi is by far the ABSOLUTE WORST. Last week when I asked him a question he replied with "that's what I had just said, didn't you hear me?" I have had an entire childhood in which I endured much abuse, neglect and toxic people around me. I certainly do not need to accept that from a doctor! Previous patients of his warned me and I should have never given him the benefit of the doubt. COLD is an understatement.

Would never ever recommended anyone to this Doctor. He made me cry the first visit with him, threw me out of his office after waiting 3 months to see him. He is horrible.

Horrible experience. Upon walking in he ask me what do i want? So much for doing a proper consultation and evaluating me. Disgrace to the profession. Walked out and will never go back. Please think twice before going.

Dr Naqvi is rude and extremely incompetent I? would not recommend him on any level. He has no integrity and is not interested in helping the true person! He just wants to fill a prescription and get a pay check

If I could leave 0 stars I would. This doctor isn't horrible and spends less than 3 minutes per visit. just prescribed me meds I've been on. I became pregnant and went straight to him to make sure my baby was safe and he told me to stop taking them right away he can't treat me anymore because of pregnancy. I didn't sleep for 6 days straight and was nearly hospitalized for a psychotic episode. Everyone who i told (including my new dr) was APPALLED. You never just STOP taking meds. Horrible.

Not very good at all. On my first visit, he didn't even evaluate me. He asked ME what my diagnosis was. He just increased my current dose. When I went back and told him it wasn't helping, he told me that I'm still going to feel bad regardless. Totally validated my negative thought pattern that I was beyond help. He only spends 5 minutes with me and he doesn't even remember me. Don't see him.

Has to be hands down the WORST experience I've ever gone through with a doctor. Being treated for GAD he felt it was best to keep me on xanax after I originally told him I don't want to take the medication. One SSRI tried with horrible side effects. I called him and told him of the SX and he tells me just keep taking the Xanax. Next visit I told him I was depressed and felt worse on xanax and he ups my dosage. I began to ask questions about alternatives and he told me "you've asked me enough ?s"

Horrible psychiatrist! Spends less than 5 mins with you and doesn't care about your opinion or what's in your best interest. He's rude and unsympathetic and just wants to take your money. Do not go to him! Total waste of time and money!

He is the WORST doctor I have ever been to. He refused to see me as a patient after some visits because when I asked, verbatim, I would like to try a new medicine if we can because this is not really working for me and he yelled at me Are you questioning my authority?! I am not taking this abuse. Get out! I was left speechless. I was in shock, I just left. At the prior meeting, he took med off medicine abruptly and I was left with horrible, painful withdrawals. My GP said I should sue him.

This doctor is all about the money and not the patients. In my opinion he is the worst doctor I have ever visited and is what's wrong with the medical system in this county. I have GHI insurance for 15 years. Have been his patient for 1 year.
