Sometimes for money, sometimes just interfering to other lives. And all the people both relatives & neighbors complaint to me about her character, shouts I have a problem like I can't remember anything for long I just remember some of the most unpleasant moments of life No good memories as such I grew up seeing failing/ bad married relationships.

Suddenly I begin to feel sad depressed lonely and the next thing I feel is pain in my chest followed by breathlessness. It continues for 5mins to half an hour at times. At that moment all I feel is I'm going to die and I feel lonely. To supress that feeling and pain I hurt my self physically to divert my pain. I lock my self up during that time as no body around me understands me. I feel everyone I love or loved leaves me n goes. Do I have any psychological problem? Should I consult a doctor?

Unfortunately my husband lost his brother 7 years back. He was depressed & had to undergo a lot as he had to face problems closing his brothers business. he feels lonely & say he has whole in his heart which he needs to fill. He got involved with one of his office colleague emotional & wants to marry her. He wants all of us to live together as he has no intention to leave me & loves me. I have asked this model & asked him to come out of the relationship which has depressed me. He still continues to have the relation fearing that he will go back in sadness if he breaks up that relation. I want my marriage to work because I know we love each other a lot. He has denied to see a psychiatrist as he thinks its a logical decision. Please help me as I have no one to talk.

A major problem in Bangalore I felt is that there is no clar I visited the doctor for strange kinds of sensations in my head. I have been visiting many doctors for the same complaint from past 3 years. A major problem in Bangalore I felt is that there is no clarity which doctor to visit for these kinds of complaints. I visited general physicians, neurologists, psychiatists, ENT doctors and even non-allopathic doctors. But the problem remained the same. Even I went to the most popular neurologist of Ramaiah Medical College. But I didn't get a proper solution. I underwent a series of investigations including the costly ones like MRI, hearing tests and so many. But after all these tests, my phisician told that they are not able to diagnose and they referred tome Dr. Ravi in Family Hospital. They said that he is an expert in such kinds of cases. Really he has expert clinical skills. He conducted several tests in the OPD itself which were never done to me before. Finally they made a diagnosis of simple anxiety and gave some medications. He also explained to me in simple language why it is not Vertigo, brain or ear related problems which was diagnosed to me before. Surprisingly, my condition started improving within 1 week. Now after 3 visits, the problem is almost gone. The advantage of of Dr. Ravi is that he has knowledge of both neurology and psychiatry because of which he can test in both the directions. We need more doctors like him so that the lot of money spent in unnecessary investigations and visiting many doctors can be saved. I recommend him to everyone who is having problems in diagnosis of their symptoms, especially confused if to go to a Neurologist or a Psychiatrist. more..

Dear Dorai. Thank you for your comments. Interesting to see that you have analyzed so many things about some of the problems with the healthcare system in Bangalore. I agree with you that in India pat Dear Dorai. Thank you for your comments. Interesting to see that you have analyzed so many things about some of the problems with the healthcare system in Bangalore. I agree with you that in India patients with problems like yours face lot of difficulty in reaching a right doctor. In other developed Countries like US, patients usually go to the "General Practitioners" first who then observes the symptoms of the patient and refers them to neurologist/psychiatrist etc. I agree that you have suffered a lot in reaching a right diagnosis. On the other hand, I am glad that you have come out of your problems. As I told you in one of the sessions, anxiety can present in many different forms and sometimes it can be confused with neurological/cardiac symptoms. So the earlier doctors were not completely wrong in going for a detailed evaluation. However, I do agree that a psychiatric referral should have been included in the assessment. Anyways, I am happy that things worked out and you are going back to your work without any interruption. See you next visit. more..

Hi Friends,
I just want you to be in good hands, which is why am compelled to write the review.. Friends I have been suffering from psychological problem since my childhood, say about from the age of 12.. Now am 27 and it's almost 14years of struggle... I have been to numerous doctors all over India including AIMS which is Asia's biggest hospital and well qualified doctors, Columbia Asia, NIMHANS ,and many other hospital to name.. Friends all the doctors I have been have no patience for atleast give 2mins to analyze my problem, in return they simply scribble the prescription and ask to follow up after 1month and so.. After all my struggle I met Dr Ravi Prakash.. First time when I went to him he gave ample of time to disclose my problems, by the way he is very strict, if you are given a task then u are suppose to do it no matter what, where I feel no doctor will be strict and dedicated like Dr Ravi prakash as per my experience.. He analyzed my problem with couple of tests and came to conclusion that am suffering with Ocd.. Which was really accurate in regards with my problem.. He even took the responsibility to cure my Ocd, Dr Ravi prakash said "Rohith" don't worry I will cure your problem and that's my assurance to u.. Friends let me tell you that it not easy to give you assurance, I have personally switched several doctors but none of them even tried to boost my confidence like Dr Ravi Prakash.. I am very blessed to have him as my Doctor.. I have never wrote a review but his dedication towards me have made me write this review.. I can say that he is my God Father.. If anyone of you r suffering with any kind of mental chalanges then I would definitely suggest you to take consultation and meet Ravi Prakash with no second thought. But my suggestion is if you start taking the treatment and feeling good never stop the medicines without taking the opinion from Dr Ravi Prakash.. N also never switch to some other doctor because Dr Ravi Prakash will stop treating you if you leave the course half way,and there is a scientific reason for that.. Hope my review helps u..

I was suffering from Obsessive compulsive disorder. I cannot tell the distress which I was undergoing by facing the repeated obsessive thoughts. It was just a hell in my mind. Then I read some reviews on just dial and visited the doctor. Frankly speaking, I was not very sure how things would turn out in first visit. The doctor looked pretty normal and not extraordinary like the reviews I had read. But slowly, I started understanding the special approach of doctor towards psychiatric illnesses. In between I changed a couple of psychiatrists also to be sure. But no doubt, the best of the lot was Dr. Ravi Prakash. Over past 2 years, things turned out exactly as he predicated. First he started me on medications and slowly decreased to dosage to stop it. Subsequently I was only maintained on some behavioral therapy techniques. He would repeatedly say that I need to put my efforts to get well and also motivated me to do the tasks. And here I am, after 2 years, off medications, practicing my behavioral techniques and in the best state of my life. I cannot thank him and his team enough. He did what I felt was impossible-Getting rid of obsessive compulsive thoughts and actions. May God bless him. Unequivocally I recommend him for any kind of anxiety issues. more..

Doctor Ravi Prakash was the much needed help I was looking for all these years.
After 10 years in psychotherapy and taking medication for OCD, though my OCD itself was definitely resolved, there were many underlying issues which were left completely unaddressed. Even after frequent regular visits spanning more than a decade to prominent doctors nobody really could understand the depth of my problems and I saw little relief. It was no wonder that when situations got somewhat out of hand, I was left completely vulnerable and distressed. When my condition was really going from bad to worse by the minute, I was handed a number of contacts of psychiatrists by a family member . Dr. Ravi Prakash's name was on the list and thankfully was one of the few doctors practising on a Sunday. After reading his profile and taking an appointment from his team who were extremely obliging and responsive I met with the doctor
Sitting across from me at the table the doctor was extremely calm and reassuring in his demeanour. This was the first time that any doctor had actually treated me with so much care and compassion. Though I was far from recovery, stressed and sceptical about he treatment I couldn't help but feel a sense of hope, howeever miniscule it was. From the get go the doctor seemed to have a deep understanding of general issues and my specific problems. I knew then that his approach was going to be different . During subsequent visits he always infused me with hope and encouraged me even though I could barely comprehend my own strengths and abilities. He was tirelessly pushing for my recovery. The other thing I really liked about his treatment is his insistence on becoming independent of medication which I did thanks to his faith in me.
In short I never thought anyone would be able to help, understand and treat me the way that Doctor Ravi Prakash did. It is a huge added plus that he is a wonderful human being and a friend to confide in with a strong desire to help those who are suffering. Truly a blessing and I am very lucky to have come across him.
I urge anyone seeking his help to trust him and sincerely work with him and he will see you through. And yes definitely keep working on the tools he provides until you embody them. This is a reminder even to me.
I am still working on myself and improving every day but I can say that my journey has finally begun.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart doctor. I wish you a long spanning career and hope you can reach out to many more people in need.
