Dr. Col. Aalok Anand is a classified specialist in Psychiatry. He has 28 years of experience in his field.
I am grateful to have come for the therapy with Dr. Anand, he is a great listener and empathetic soul.. very thorough and experienced that could understand the problem within a short while and a few descriptions.
In the process, he allows the patient some time for some self-reflection with multiple spiritual and walking activities to implement for the patient to naturally raise certain chemicals in the brain with a lifestyle change. He as well adviced me before the next visit to make a few tiny steps to deal with the big problems ..like befriending a stray dog, distributing chocolates and seeing the problem from a different perspective.
I would suggest to not make a pre-judgment during your visits and allow the therapy some time to show its effect. On my 2nd and third visit, I could see the change in me and understand the reasons for said suggestions. He is very friendly and explained the problem in my words with simple funny examples.
I would highly recommend the doctor for any kind of mental issues. Very experienced and kind. I am healing and still reach out to him for any concerns.
It was really Awesome experience to interact with Dr.Aalok,he listened to my concerns properly giving enough time and inquired thoroughly about all aspects in detail related to my problem, he explained the treatment nicely telling the impact it will have on my body.He was very friendly,it was very comfortable talking to him.
He is very nice in explaining and understanding issues. He listens and provides good suggestions. He helped me to overcome my anxiety
Doctor is experienced from his age and professional background. He believes in treating the patient with therapies and less medicines.
But he keeps on talking himself all the time and does not listen to the patient. he does not examines the patient nor he listens to their concerns, just keeps on giving his point of view and opinions. He did not even ask me my actual concerns for which i went there.
After coming out of the room i was feel more frustrated and dissatisfied because the patient does not get to talk which is the main reason of depression .
Dr. Alok is good but the only problem is the time constraint. I don't know hospital fixes it or the doctor. they have very rigid time slot of 30 min. In this 30 min, patient has to tell his/her story, doctor has to counsel, give treatment, do's/don'ts. which is not possible.
so, he tells you to speak less and listen to him because there is a time constraint.
A person who is already feeling depressed because somewhere he/she is feeling loneliness, may be he/she is not able to find anyone who can listen to him/her and understand, that he/she decided to visit a psychiatrist as a last resort and that psychiatrist also don't let you speak and tells you listen to me only.
there is no bad feeling more than this. I was numb after visiting him. because I couldn't release my stress and all I got a validation on that I'm depressed".
Again, I don't know who is responsible for the time constraint.
I like the doctor, only if he could give more time was required.
I have met many psychiatrists, not all are as good as him.
May the doctor or management pays a little attention on this concern, it would be more helpful.
Dr Alok Anand is a friendly psychiatrist. He is humble and gentle person. He understands the case very diligently and his conversation are driven by relatable examples. I would strongly recommend him to generalised anxiety disorder patients. He also provides good medicins.
Awesome. Dr heard and gave me medicines. I appreciated that Dr gave me 70 mins to ask good questions.
I had a 3 month old whom I was feeding when I visited the doctor. Due to changes in sleep pattern and other personal anxiety issues my sleep had gone for a toss completely. I was not being able to sleep even when the kid was asleep. When I visited the doctor I was very skeptical about any kind of medicinal treatment. But not only did he advised me ways to tackle my issues but also consoled and made me understand the importance of having a medicine at that point in time. Over great doctor, listens to you and treats you with his wisdom.
Disclaimer: In Asha multispeciality 30 min mean 30 min.
A great human being and what a wonderful doctor he is. Just after my first visit I am feeling much better. He is a wonderful counselor and extremely patient in listening to patients. He guides you well and gives ample time and gives you a lot of non medicinal ways of treatment.
He was extremely patient in listening to the problem in detail. He explained the situation to each family member with great detail. Will surely consult him regularly.
