For about a month, I had stopped going to work. I tried different distractions, talked to friends and family, took small trips outside my schedule; but nothing brought me back to my routine. So, suspecting some depression or anxiety, I went to Dr. Pooja K Rai.

I should mention that my visit happened to be on a public holiday. While most people were not working, she was. Her clinic looked very professional, and she meticulously took notes throughout my session. I spent more than an hour talking to her, explaining myself. She is a person who knows how to listen and ask the right questions. She probed the right details and made me explain situations/feelings which I would never have felt comfortable explaining to anyone. In the first session itself, I felt extremely at home and I opened up. She did not resort to advising; neither did she take the route of discourse on general philosophy/wisdom. On the contrary, she transparently explained what she thought was the problem and helped by giving small nuggets of practical tips, one-liners and lifestyle suggestions.

Her diagnosis was comprehensive and holistic. She explained why she is prescribing what she is prescribing. She took time to touch upon the risk-benefit balance and justified her medications (including telling me what kind of side effects to expect). She also told me what to expect from the session; what is the realistic timescale for complete cure.

I happened to gather from other sources that many of my colleagues also prefer her as counselor/consultant. I felt secured of the anonymity. Overall, I highly recommend her as a psychiatrist. She is not a doctor who will wash you out with medications. She is a very holistic consultant, who you will be very happy to meet and talk to.
