Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Will never personally return phone calls, appointments are always rushed, she gets your current dose wrong so she really doesn't know what's going on, brushes off your knowledge of how medication is affecting you while continuing to up doses and add meds even though the current dose may be helping, schedules patients on new meds minimum 4 weeks out regardless of requests to be seen sooner, just go somewhere else. Her receptionist is a gem though and constantly blames herself for the doctors inability to do anything helpful except push the pills she's contracted to.

Highly recommend. Dr. Ahuja and staff were very responsive at a time when finding assistance for my teen was quite difficult. Dr. Ahuja conveys a genuine sense of caring. Office staff is both welcoming and professional.

Dr. Ahuja constantly exceeds all our expectations with the care of my 2 children. She always takes the time to talk to them and most importantly, listen to them. She is warm, welcoming, patient and an expert in what she does. My 2 children have been excelling in all aspects of their life after seeing Dr. Ahuja. They went from F students to straight A students within a matter of few months. The staff is also amazing. We have never had a medical office be so communicative as this office. The office manager Bo, is just as kind and patient as the Doctor. She is always available when we have questions and always makes it convenient for us to schedule appointments. We are so happy with this office and wouldn't go anywhere else.

It is hard to find a psychiatrist who will work with adolescents and actually be able to connect with them. Dr. Ahuja offers care and support to my teen and has been a positive part of his treatment. Bo, her office staff, is always prompt and professional and expresses the same level of concern for well being. My teen, and us as his parents, have felt heard and respected during our office visits and through other communication.

I love Dr. Ahuja! We have used other psychiatrists in the past that we really didn't feel any connection with. But, at Valencia Psychiatry, we know they care. The doctor is great and Bo takes care of everything at the front desk. Thank you :)

My 5year old has been getting help from Dr Ahuja for the last 4 months. Her staff are very nice and friendly especially Bo. They always try to find an appointment for me that works with my crazy schedule. Dr Ahuja is a good listener and very patient. She’s very supportive and never rushed.

My teen daughter has been a patient of Dr. Ahuja for one year and we have been very pleased with her services. Her office has been very easy to work with, we never have felt rushed during appointments and we are getting compassionate care. My daughter enjoys working with her. Dr. Ahuja is thorough in her explanations, takes time to answer our questions, and we feel we are in good hands.
