I visited Dr Kavita for the first time last year after trying a lot of other therapists. With her, I struck gold. She is amazing in what she does, has a calm presence, is so patient and explains everything to you in detail. she is very professional and ethical and would also encourage you to start handling issues on your own as we progress.
She is very nice..I mean I have consulted more than ten doctors for my disease but I find her the best.. The way she explains, her attitude, she is very friendly and her of course not to mention her expertise in her area.. I feel very lucky to have her as my psycatrist..
Well to start off with I had no idea for 2 months that i had major anxiety problems, since my symptoms were quite weird. i had a constant pain in my chest, felt very nausea-tic, would throw up at times, had tremors all over my body at night, my vision was hazy, was getting jerkzss at night, would feels chills all over my body and could hardly sleep for 4 hours at night. I went to every doctor possible the Cardiologist the ENT specialist, Gastroenterologist, as every cramp over my chest over my heart was increasing my anxiety and i had no idea it was anxiety.
I honestly felt suicidal after not being diagnosed for a month and a half and with all these problems and without getting proper sleep as i was getting these tremors through the whole day. I was helpless and i just couldn't get the suicidal thought out of my head. IT was kinda like stuck and that mental battle was the toughest one i have felt in my life. I guess i was watched over by an angel to have survived this. And it was when my family doctor told me that you probably have major anxiety disorder and you need to see a psychiatrist.\nIt was when all hope was lost, I was like ok, lets see this angle as well. I looked up on the internet and reading the comments of everyone here just got the gut feeling that i needed to see Dr.Kavita Sagarkar. I met her and told her about my past history and the due to some family issue that i probably developed anxiety and told her my symptoms. it was a vicious cycle actually. She explained it to me what my problem was actually and assured me that i would be fine without a doubt. She gave me some medicines(seeing my state she had to) which were mild ones and i knew i had to take them coz i hadn't slept for more than 4 hrs a day for the past 2 months . I HAD LOST 11 KGS so my condition was horrendous.
Patients tend to get scared about the medicines a psychiatrist gives because of the general perception in society but trust me she knows the best whether you need one or not. I was initially scared and with a milder dose(like i wanted) i thought I would get better. but it relapsed and got back worse and I was getting frustrated and scared of the medicines she was providing.I thought it was messing my brain further(EVERYONE THINKS THIS... SO IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE FAITH IN THE DOCTOR ALWAYS)I couldn't believe that even after a month with the medicines my condition was still not improving and I really thought I wouldnt get better ever... And it was an eventual end.\nDr. Kavita told me that i had to trust her and the medicines shes gonna give me( as i was paranoid earlier)........i had anyways lost hope. i prayed to God and just took it...AND that was the turning point. she had given me a potent medicine and it did the trick....Its been 2 months i have been taking that medicine and with the love, patience and assurance that the doctor gave me...i started getting back to normalcy. I HAVE GAINED 6 KGS BACK I really owe my LIFE to this woman.
I couldn't have been in better hands.
PS: I Know I have written a lot but its only because I wanted to highlight all my problems and assure anyone who is reading the comments out there.... that there is Hope!! and her name is DR. KAVITA SAGARKAR :D ...\nAnd its all a phase and you will get better eventually. Trust the almighty... and the doctor too:)\n\n
I will try and keep this brief.
My wife and I went through a traumatic event earlier this year which left us both with a shattered worldview and very different people in it's wake.
Neither of us had *truely* sought help with regards to our mental health in the past - in the interest of full disclosure, my wife did visit Dr. Sagarkar earlier for a different matter not too long before our visit together and had a great experience, which is why we decided to seek her counsel for this. It was certainly my very first time getting any kind of help with mental health and I am glad we happened to choose the right person for the job.
Each time we would visit the Doctor for a consultation, the result would be the same. We would step out of her office a happier, calmer and freer version of ourselves.
Over the course of 10 or so visits, we are both a permanently optimized version of ourselves, ready to face reality with an entirely new and extremely efficient tool-set if that makes sense.
To quickly and objectively summarize,
- Diagnosis was spot on.
- ******** ********** *** ***** ***** ********* Has a unique approach to therapy, which gets you ready for real life in no time.
- You won't feel like you are speaking to an authority figure, but a very good friend, whose advice you always cherish.
Many thanks, Doctor!
I have very very good experience. I was taking taking treatment of one of top & respected Gastroentrologist Doctor of Lilavati & Nanavati. After my admission to his private hospital, related problem solved, but the medicine is having lot of horrible side effects. so after 1 month I took her advice. she asked me to stop medicines immediately & given another medicine. After six month my problem of Acid reflux stopped completely & I am fine. I owe lot to her.She is always available for support after consultation. that is another fine quality.
Dr. Kavita gave me a new lease on life. I was a shadow of a person going through the motions that were expected of me. Every little aspect of life left me exhausted, even if it was a trip to the grocery store. I knew I needed help, and I'm glad I received it from such a highly competent, understanding, open minded and kind person.
The first thing that struck me when I met Dr. Kavita was how comfortable she made me feel. I was able to divulge every aspect of my life and received no judgement in return. Just understanding, acceptance and guidance on how to make better decisions in the future.
What I had assumed to be mere anxiety all of my life, turned out to be mild depression instead. I had to be nudged to take medications, but I am eternally thankful that I trusted doc to make the best decisions for me. The medications along with the NLP exercises she taught me revealed the best parts of myself that were buried under years of false perceptions. The exercises helped me finally unburden myself of all the demeaning voices I had been carrying with myself all my life. Doctor helped me chose who I wanted to be, instead of just being a product of my circumstances. For this I am eternally grateful.
If you are planning on employing her services for any problem you might be struggling with, big or small, I would encourage you to go for it. Dr Kavita is not only impeccable in her understanding of the human mind and the psychology behind it, but she also has cultivated her personality to put her patients at ease to help them be vulnerable without reproach. She is highly professional to boot. A fine balance I hope to achieve in my own life someday.
My sister was into depression after my mother's death and for almost four years she completely isolated herself in a room to an extent where she stopped speaking and her hygiene went to a toss. After my father's death it got bad and she also got into huge issues that made me worry to death. Since I had no clue about psychiatry I googled and visited the first recommendation, *** ********* *** **** but the other doctor did not warn me of side effects. Also my sister was diagnosed with scrizophenia, which was a wrong diagnoses as she was everything but never violent. After shifting from one to another doctor and having bad dissatisfactory experiences I found Dr Kavita online. My first session with her was a huge relief , she did not make any false promise rather first explained me the diagnoses, it was bipolar. She also reduced the meds gradually and made me aware of any kind of side effects and if that happened what could be done. She also does not make you dependent on her rather she makes you educated on the issue enough that one learns to deal in a better way. Her counselling is extremely clear and practical and medicines are minimal. She will never ever shoo away your questions nor hide anything from you. It's been 6 months and I have never seen her irritated or frustrated. She handles her patients calmly and welcomingly.
If you find her fee a bit on the higher side than other doctors online, do not think twice. It's worth every penny. She also gives you proper one hour . My sister has improved beyond expectations. She now has a life, works and has become a cheerful person.
When I look back I feel that one step into Dr Kavita's cabin was one of the wisest decision of my life.
She is no magician but she made me believe that with proper guidance, counselling and medicine one can give life a better chance.
A quote I now trust in :- "I just wanted to see what would happen if I didn't give up"
Excellent experience. I waited to write a feedback after I found a change in myself. I started in June 2020 & as of Oct 2020. I feel like mentally I have reduced 60 kgs.....that is the kind of treatment she gives.
Gives undivided attention, no judgement on anything told, explains situations and theories with very simple examples. The tools she gives to handle situations are simple and easily doable and have a huge impact.
I am very glad I started my sessions with her.
I strongly recommend her.
She is not just a doctor but a great friend you can lean on who is available whenever you need her. I consulted her in my most anxious time and felt better in one session, she makes a person lean on self than drugs. Though my treatment was meant to be for three months, I started getting off in just two months. Her NLP techniques are brilliant *** **** **** ****** She is not commercial and gives all the time one needs. She really really cares for her patients and has everything invested in making them better, I can go on and on cause she is just so wonderful. Glad I found her!!!
After my father's death, I moved to Bombay to pursue MBA, my mom had been disturbed but she seemed to have it all together till she started complaining about how someone was spying on her. Things escalated and I decided to get her to Bombay with me. We met a lot of doctors and everyone called it schizophrenia, offering little explanation. I found Dr. Kavita after which a lot of unanswered questions had not just answers but solutions, and with trial and error we realized her diagnosis was wrong all this while and Dr. Kavita helped us figure it out. My mom is much better now and she loves visiting Dr. Kavita because she completely trusts her which means a lot. Thank you.
