I was losing weight, had disconnected with the world around me, preferred being by myself, lay awake most nights, couldn’t focus on one thing, felt estranged from my own family and found no particular meaning in life. That was when a friend and childhood buddy suggested I see Dr. MJ Thomas. My first appointment lasted 2 hours.
In less than a week I began to see a difference. My thoughts were still running but they were no longer debilitating. I was able to focus enough to carry out my responsibilities at work. I slept deep and sound. I misplaced and forgot things less. I smiled more. I began reading and started back on my craft work. It felt like I got a second lease of life.
Yes, it did take a few trials to arrive at the right dose. And just as Dr. Thomas warned it did take a couple of weeks for the body to adapt. Dr. Thomas is upfront about his fees and for a specialty practice that delivers results his charges are absolutely reasonable.
If you want individual attention and tailor-made therapy be prepared to pay the consultation fee or else there is always NIMHANS or St. Johns.

Though he had 38 years of experience, he is sitting to earn money rather than taking care of patients. Am going through severe mental depression and he was giving gyaans. I didn't pay 1000 rs for gyaans. I also advised him to suggest me medicines and he said to continue the medicines which other doctors prescribed inspite of the medicines not working and giving me severe side effects. He also dare to tell me that his time is over and to pay another 2000 rs to continue the session. He is taking benefit of the fact that people have come with health issues and they will pay whatsoever. This is my worst experience visiting the doctor. He didn't give me any medicines, no prescription, was charging 2000rs extra to continue the consultation beyond 15mins. I would strictly advise to stay away from this doctor. He is a useless piece sitting and counting notes. more..

In this span of four months, we must have visited him over 20 times, each time paying a somewhat hefty fee of INR 1000.

He must have tried all possible antidepressants on my mother, sometimes changing her medications every week that gave her severe side effects. Also, she had been on alprazolam for many years, and he stopped that, leading to severe benziodiazepine withdrawal symptoms that ruined her sleep and overall health. He said it was against his principles to prescribe alprazolam because in the united States, doctors were liable to being arrested for it.

When my mother was on the verge of complete breakdown, I had to change doctors to save her from destruction. I would strongly advise you to check all other options before you consult with him.

Visited For Anxiety And Depression
Very rude, asks INR 1000 for diagnosing the issue and asks us to pay another INR 2000 for giving detailed explanation. Please do not approach this doctor as there are much much better doctors around.
