Dr. Fawad is caring and competent. I was already on an even keel again after episodes of depression and hypomania when my previous psychiatrist retired, but my medication is complex and Dr Fawad manages it well. She is easy to talk to.

Dr. Fawad is kind, caring, and very competent. Dr. Fawad has managed my medication for many years now, and works diligently with me to help reduce doses per my request. She is easy to talk to, extremely understanding, and goes out of her way to help her patients. Dr. Fawad has made accommodations for my busy schedule on several occasions, including during a holiday. It is obvious that Dr. Fawad genuinely cares about her patients. With the help of Dr. Fawad, I was able to turn my life around and proceed onto law school!

5 stars for a 5 star person. I have been seeing Dr. Fawad for what feels like a life time. It’s really has only been about three years but boy has this woman helped me. I had a hard time connecting with doctors and feeling heard or validated. Dr. Fawad LISTENS to you!!!!! Before treating you!!!!!! I was being treated by so many other doctors who never actually listened to what was wrong. I was wrongly diagnosed a number of times and it was a mess to say the least. Finally I found dr Fawad. She changed my life. Not only is she a lovely human but you can tell she loves what she does. She is beyond professional but you still feel that personal connection with her which makes talking about mental health a lot easier. She is extremely intelligent and overall just made for her profession.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fawad for four years. For over a year I have had Zoom virtual appointments. She is usually on time whether in the office or virtual. She is always happy to see me and asks questions to evaluate how I am doing. She is very compassionate person. Dr. Fawad monitors me as a person and my meds, I feel very safe with her.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Fawad. She has been treating me for almost 4 years now. Right from the start Dr. Fawad spent time talking to me about my diagnosis and the recommended treatment. I know I am in it for the long haul and with Dr. Fawad by my side I know that things will be okay. She is kind and patient. And she doesn't just prescribe medicine; she takes the time to talk to me and ask me how I am and truly listens. She pushes me to give real answers (which sometimes can be tough) but that's the only way for her to know how to help me. I would highly recommend her!

Dr. Fawad has been my psychiatrist for nearly two years and has always been prompt with any issues, direct with treatment options, and willing to work with my needs without being judgemental. The telemedicine appointments are incredibly convenient and are brief enough that I can easily slot them into my busy schedule. Dr Fawad's demeanor is calm, approachable, and friendly without being casual. Any questions I have had with medication, including mechanism of action, have been answered as thoroughly and complete as possible, which I have always appreciated.

Dr. Fawad is kind, compassionate and really listens to what your feeling. She is very easy to talk to unlike some others. She is wise and gentle. I feel confident in her treatment plan of me and would really not want to go anywhere else. I have been seeing her for a while now and feel much better. She is consistent and well educated. Her knowledge is inspiring. As a person she is very genuine. I highly recommend this doctor.

Dr. Fawad is a thoughtful, caring and compassionate medical professional who I highly recommend! I started seeing Dr. Fawad a few years ago shortly after being diagnosed with significant Postpartum Depression and Anxiety. During every visit Dr. Fawad takes the time to listen carefully to how I'm doing and to answer any questions that I may have. She is always so thoughtful and caring in her responses to my concerns and seems genuinely interested and invested in my well-being and mental health. While I'm sure her schedule is very full and busy, she never makes me feel rushed or like I'm just another patient. Dr. Fawad is warm and kind. She is a wonderful Psychiatrist who I could not recommend more.

I initially started going to see Dr. Fawad with my brother and ended up switching to her because she is amazing. She listens to your concerns and works with what makes you feel comfortable. She doesn't try to push medications on you like a lot of doctors do. I am very happy with her & would recommend her to anyone looking for a great doctor.

Meghan Pimentel – Jul 10, 2021
When my primary care (PC) physician recommended I see a psychiatrist due to my diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease, I didn’t know what to expect having never seen or needed any doctor for mental health concerns. Thanks again Neuro Behavioral was recommended and better yet, Dr Ujala Fawad. Starting with my first visit, I felt very comfortable and she made me feel very much at ease even with my anxiety at a 10! Dr Fawad took her time and discussed medication options listened to my concerns about their use. She put together a plan and we started out with the least intrusive medications we could. Over several months we changed dose, type, frequency etc. several times until I felt the way I needed…she was super patient and unassuming. There were times I would see her every couple of weeks until things were right. Well, it’s been roughly 3 years or so seeing her and she is a terrific and caring doctor that I would highly recommend her to anyone.
