Dr. Shyam Mithiya specializations are child youth & geriatric problems, women problems, sexual disorders and marital therapy, de-addiction, headache, stress.
I want to start with a sentence 'Dr. Shyam is an outstanding therapist.'
I started visiting him since February along with my husband. I was going through stress, anxiety and also our marital life was taking a toll. So my husband also decided to see him.
Dr. Shyam ensured, he spoke to us together as well us separately to understand our areas where we were struggling.
He has been very approachable and is a good listener. He is not someone who will just give an advice on mental health or some medicines and let you go. He will try to understand where you are coming from, hear you out. And also constantly encourages to practice different concepts and ideas to live a better life and not just depend on medicines.
Especially in a time like COVID, when the world has changed for all of us, my husband and I felt extremely lucky that we consulted him during this period. We had multiple episodes of arguments and fights in the past due to reasons like work pressure and also being 2 different personalities. But during this lockdown, we did not fight. We did have disagreements but we realised under Dr. Shyam's guidance we were being open to understand each other's situation and made peace with each other. It's such a big change in us.
I have also been facing huge amount of stress and anxiety, which links back to my childhood and I figured out I have been going through depression after we met him.
Dr. Shyam has given me minimal doses and has encouraged me to pick up a healthy lifestyle, like meditation, affirmations, practicing gratitude and told me nothing comes before our mental peace. Such a powerful message! It's been 4 months, and I am doing so much better now. There's a sense of calmness in me. I do not wake up in the morning with heaviness.
He has really been a wonderful guide to help me and my husband get out of the stress and anxiety we were both going through.
We both have been very open to our friends and social circle in saying - yes we are seeing a therapist, and why shouldn't we? It's one life and we all have the right to live it superbly! We don't have to be answerable to anyone to nurture our mental health.
I totally urge people to come forward if you feel there's something you are grappling with and your mental peace is being threatened.. Don't compromise on your mental health, especially when we have such a skilled and wonderful therapist in Mumbai, the right person to go to Dr. Shyam Mithiya. Thank you so much, Doctor. :)
Very friendly and open to discussion from the patient's perspective. Comfortable enough to get treated under.
The doctor is friendly. I had visited him for tightened jaws and clinching teeth while sleeping.
The doctor was flooded with appointments that evening and seemed rushed. The doctor diagnosed me with depression and prescribed anti depressants.
I tried the medicine for 1 day and had side effects. Stopped taking the medicines and resorted to Yoga and Pranayam. Symptoms are better with consistent lifestyle changes for 6 months now.
I would recommend the doctor to also provide a non-medicine led alternative to the patients and explain the diagnosis and line of treatment fully so that the patient appreciates the how and why.
Doctor & staff are very cooperative. But the ambience needs improvement . Doctor explained the problem very nicely.
He Understands problem and listen it very carefully and then start treatment. Satisfactory Treatment
Dr. Shyam had ideal profile for us, as we had problems with both sexual life and marital life.
He was patient in hearing, gave us sufficient time, diagnosed with all details, gave minimum doses and counseling.
Overall very satisfied with approach and comfort he gives.
Recommended for sure.
It was very detailed discussion, doctor understood my issue with patience and suggested medicines.Doctor is keen to know background of issue and then ask questions related to current illness status.
Dr. Mithiya is a patient doctor and his diagnosis & line of treatment are amazing. He will not prescribe any medicine more than required and for me, he always recommended we try combination of exercise & medicine so as to bring down medication dosage over time. He listens to you and answers your questions, doubts, etc. and makes you feel at ease considering the kind of problem you are going through. It has been a great experience consulting him since almost an year now and I am way ahead of where I was when I started off.
Doctor Shyam highly recommended. 10 stars for his treatment, consulting, judgement, problem solving ability , confidence. In my first visit itself, he told me the date by which I will get completely fine and my problem will be solved and it did. He proved himself. My last visit was just one date earlier that he had told me with I even more commendable becos he cured my problem before the promised date. Hats off to his confidence and obviously such confidence only comes with expertise and experience. Without a doubt he is the best psychiatrist in Mumbai. I have met so many of them and spent hell lot of money but nothing worked in my case. I am also really thankful to doctor Shyam coz he literally made and saved my life. As a token of thanks, we offered him a car but he refused to keep it. Such humbleness and maturity at this age is remarkable. He just asked us to give our blessings to him. Our blessings will always remind with you doctor Shyam. You are truly an idol for us. Will always look up to you. Great great going. Superb simply superb
I was diagnosed with OCD & minor Anxiety. At the beginning you don't really know what you are going through and what exactly is happening with you. I was at this stage where I believe it was uncontrollable and was highly interacting with my daily life and work. Well, I have had episodes before as well but I tried living with it. I was dealing with this since past 8-10 years. This time around, I realised it's high time and was in 2 minds initially whether to consult someone for this or deal with it. I did some research online, was trying to find ways to combat it without seeking help. One day, I just decided out of the blue to at least consult a doctor. I came across Dr. Mithyas profile on practo. Initially I was hesitant to go, I even skipped few appointments but I made my mind and went for it. That was it. I think that's one of the best decisions I made in my life. My sessions started with Dr. From the month of March and within 4 months, I was cured (yes you heard that right, I was cured) I am sure you'll read things online where people will say you cannot cure it but you can reduce the symptoms. I was on medication for about 3 months, again, I was reluctant but Dr. Made sure that our end goal is to eliminate medicines. It's been close to 2 months since I am off medicines and there are no signs of anything coming back. I am doing well workwise as well as in my personal life. I was on meds from my first session and we increased the dose a bit from the 3rd session. I was already feeling well but the challenge was to go off medicines and then see how I feel. Doctor always believed that medicines will subside your symptoms but it's your dedication and your effort that will change things drastically. Those sessions with Dr. did wonders. He will listen to you and talk with you as a friend. I always looked forward to his sessions and in every session I had loads of things to talk about. In the end, I will say, do not hesitate to consult a doctor, it will really help. It helped me, it will help you as well.
