I visited the doctor at a time when I was very disturbed and felt like I had no control on my thoughts, emotions and reactions. I had anxiety issues and trouble sleeping.
What I really liked about the doctor was his keenness to understand the root cause of my problems (insisting on describing experiences I have had since childhood). The sessions with him usually were for an hour, there was no rush from his side to finish up fast to cater to other patients. He gives you his complete time and attention.
The medication worked very well for me and he insisted on having multiple sessions to understand my recovery rate and suggested other coping strategies to me (yoga, meditation, exercise, thought control) for my anxiety and anger issues.
I loved his style of treatment and would definitely recommend him to people who are looking for help.
He is very polite and patient. He helps you understand and manage your disease very effectively. He has helped me a lot to come out of my depression and understand it better.
Doctor is very friendly and has very good experience in handling problems. He is very patient enough to listen and resiprocate
I will recommend this doctor
As I had a nice experience with him.he advised me some sort of techniques to overcome from the same, I tried and got better results. Given appropriate time for me to solve the issue.
