This is the first psychiatrist that has listened to my concerns and offers solutions to "think about". He explained my diagnosis on my level of understanding and did not try to over medicate me. He has a different approach to his assessment, which brings things out in a less traditional way, which did not make me feel judged or labeled. He is empathetic and passionate about what he does. I felt care about as a human being, and didnt't se me as an oppertunity to capitalize on my insurance

THE worst doctor call of my 62 years! I needed a prescription refilled for a 7 day business trip. It's controlled substance, only few local doctors prescribe it & can take only few patients. I called on Jan 2 made appmt for Jan8 after coming back. So called 7:30am jan8, he had no recollection, made no appmt. He said call back at 1pm. I did. Again, no recollection of the 7:30 call same morning. Said to go to urgent care, he had no time.Called 4 times during the week to make sure! JERK!

Dr. Chaudhri is amazing, however, dealing with the office staff is an absolute nightmare. Once the didn't bother to tell Dr Chaundri that he had a patient in the waiting room for 3 1/2 hours. At one point while I was waiting they offered me the chance to see his PA. I went back to her office and explained to her the titration schedule I was on, she didn't believe me and made me go back to the waicing room. When I finally saw him he said next time to text him from the waiting room.
