Maam is really very nice and caring to her patients. She gives time and listens to the issues with great patience and makes you feel better. I am very happy under her guidance
I have been suffering from anxiety/depression for many years now. I first visited Dr. Priya in Oct last year. Since then, my condition has improved considerably.
Every time I visit Dr. Priya, she spends a lot of time with me and listens to all my concerns. She is very thorough and works with us to find the right combination of medicines and other approaches.
She is very friendly and is encouraging. We highly recommend her.
I had been to Cadabams with my aunt in an emergency situation. My aunt had just undergone a major brain surgery and had lost her mental balance and also had memory loss. At that point of time Dr Priya Raghavan came as a ray of hope for us and she was very successful to understand the confusions and stress that my aunt was going through because of her OCD and brain surgery related issues.She would patiently listen to the patient , attendees and helped us in how to deal with my aunt. Dr Priya was very friendly and at the same time strict towards the patient when they do not follow the instructions given by her.Best thing about Dr Priya Raghavan is she understands along with the patient the whole family goes through the situation and she really boosted us to keep hoping that my aunt will get better and made us understand how my aunt would recover faster with the help of her family.We thank her whole heartedly for all the guidance and patience towards us. I would definetly recommend her to my friends and family.
I have consulted Dr.Priya Raghavan to get the treatment for my mother.
My mother was suffering from severe depression and anxiety related to
Astrology, Horoscope and some other false believes that she had developed from many long years especially by watching astrology programs onTV.
We were very late when we realized the symptoms are related to mental health. somehow we have convinced her to visit the physiatrist in ******** ****** Rajajinagar and was under medication for 8-9 months but there was no drastic improvement. Personally, I have also not satisfied with the doctor because they hardly give 5 mins of time to the patient and was not ready to listen to the problems, All the problems were supposed to be explained to his assistants based on their report medication was suggested. I feel it was not diagnosed effectively and medication was not effective and in between one fine day my mother stopped taking the medicines and we were not able to convince her to continue the medicines.
After 3-4 months the situation was very bad and this time she was not ready to visit the doctor.
So I was searching on practo for a doctor who could visit our home, then I found Dr.Priya and met her in Vijayanagar clinic and explained all the problems and she had agreed to visit our home even my native place is too far from Bangalore ( around 100 kms) without any hesitation.
I have seen in movies that Doctors do visit the patienst at their home but in our case, it came into reality, I really appreciate this kind of serive as the biggest challenge for physiatric patients is to get them to physiatrist and make them understand to take medication.
She has good listening skills, I feel that is the most important thing for a physiatrist and gives suffient time for the patient and the family members to explain the problems.
She also makes my mother understand the necessity of taking the tablets.
After 2 months of the treatment, my mother is normal, I can say 80% but
and I hope it will be 100% in the next few months.
My family members are all happy with the present condition of my mother.
and a big thanks to Dr.Priya
I was suffering from Anxiety,panic attacks & had physical symptoms like shortness of breath,insomnia,shivering and consulted many doctors and did many tests like MRI, Blood tests etc.. but nothing helped me.
Fortunately i met Dr. Priya and religiously followed her instructions on Cognitive behavioral therapy and medicines prescribed.
Within a span of 3 months i can see a drastic improvement and i was able to overcome anxiety and panic attacks in 6 months.
There is a saying "One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say..." Dr. Priya is one such kind enough person who listens to you, analyses your mental state and provides required solutions and moral support for your mental illness.
After every session with her, I feel very relaxed and there is a person who can resonate my thoughts and provides solution to my issues and fears.
If you are suffering with Anxiety and depression, Remember you are not the only one.From the outside looking in, it can be difficult to spot the differences between stress and anxiety.
But if it becomes uncontrolled,seek professional help.
After all You only live once, Never hesitate to seek help.
Thank you so much for the difference you made in my life. Your kindness, sincere caring made everything better and was a great encouragement.” Every day of my life is better because of you.
I worked under Dr. Priya Raghavan at Healthy Mind Clinic in an internship for around 2 months. Apart from being a guide and mentor to the very delicate field of psychiatry, she also was a great source of inspiration. I was allowed to observe the sessions where consent by patients was granted and the comfort of the patient was her utmost priority. I noticed how she had an expert eye for diverse cases and occurrences of symptoms, how the concepts were on her tips and how she managed different cases with different backgrounds in the most suitable manner. she knows Kannada, Tamil, Telegu, Hindi and English to ensure effective communication. I learnt not only professional etiquette from her but also the basic requirements for such an intricate work. Her connections in the field also seem useful for those who are not looking for psychiatry but related services. i highly recommend Dr. Priya Raghavan as she takes real pain to make her patients feel the most comfortable and best state of themselves.
Dr. Priya Raghavan understands the patients problems and adminsters right medication and gives the right counselling which helps the patient understand the illness and improve the condition. I would highly recommend Dr. Priya Raghavan for any psychiatric issues.
She just saved my life and gave rebirth. Had lost hope in life and was under excessive depression disorder with suicidal thoughts. Had lost sleep. She had patience in listening to my story from childhood and gave excellent counselling with medicine. She is a good listener and makes you do self assessment. Had sessions with my spouse to understand my behaviour. She has huge experience in this field, would recommend for everyone. People who are fighting with depression, remember you are not alone. Take help, do not hesitate. Come back in life with a bang.
Doctor is compassionate and friendly.She made me feel at ease and allowed me to open up to her. She understood the problem very quickly and provided the right solution which i was searching for years.*********** *** ** * **** **** ************ *above all she is very good person which is needed most for psychiatric patients.She is down to earth while dealing with patients,gives a patient hearing.Healthy Mind Clinic is very peaceful and the service staff also treats you very well .The doctor and the clinic together, I have never seen such comfortable,peaceful clinic environment like this in my experience.
She made me feel comfortable and allowed me to open up to her. She was non judgemental and posed relevant questions ( played devil’s advocate when required) to make me think and re-focus my priorities. She enabled me to question my thought process and thereby understand it better.
She gave me a lot of time and consistently empathised with me that enabled me to access my inner thoughts and articulate them.
A wonderful doctor and above all an excellent human being - would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a psychiatrist.
