I do not recommend the doctor
Hoped for better: Treatment satisfaction
I am not sure where to start. I had gone to this doctor who came highly recommended when I was suffering from Depression. I think the hospital where he sees his patients - Shanti Nursing Home- overbooks him which he finds irritating. I was the last patient before he was about to leave at 12 pm in the afternoon. When I went it and talked about feeling depressed, these were his exact words to me: " Oh! Listening to all you young people saying I'm depressed I myself feel like jumping out of the window!". I was honestly shocked. He went on to complain about the hospital saying they send him too many patients. He talked to me about 10 minutes, prescribed medications and asked me to come back a month later. You can imagine how vulnerable I was to reach out to a psychiatrist and how I would have felt about seeking further help for my mental illness. Another friend of mine who went to him had a similar experience. I would skip going to him at all. I found him to be very unprofessional.
