Dr Prashant was referred by my psychologist as my symptoms were flaring up. He prescribed ******* medicines * ****** ***** *********** ***** ** *** **** He just gave apt meds in order to treat my anxiety. I highly recommend him now I am off meds and take follow up with my therapist. I am really happy. Thankyou so much sir.
I highly recommend Dr Prashant's effort in treating me. I have been mistreated earlier and was unable to recover neither did I was given any right information by previous doctors. He gave me much importance and time. I started to feel better within a few days. I felt at peace, satisfied which I never felt earlier. The way he teaches about illness and treatment I felt convinced then only. Thumbs up to him.
Reached out to the doctor for my mother's clinical depression. The first session went great and my mother was happy to have interacted with the doctor. Review will be updated after a little time of treatment now :)
