So, I am writing this feedback after having met her 7 times and after getting my problem almost completely resolved. I had booked my appointment around 7 months back, and for the first two appointments I didn't even visit her. I must give the credit to my psychologist who was doing my therapy sessions , who convinced me that I should visit a psychiatrist, and take medical treatment alongside the therapy sessions to have a better response.
Since, I was a bit apprehensive about the medications and the side effects, I tried procrastinating meeting her, but as symptoms were not getting better, finally decided to see her. I will try to write an honest opinion about things I liked and something's that i didn't
1. She is a thorough professional, and in the first meeting itself I felt at ease with her. When she got to know that I am already taking therapy sessions, she encouraged me to continue with the sessions and with my therapist only. This made me trust her immediately.
2. She gave me a patient hearing for around 15 minutes and than discussed the diagnosis with me. Although I already knew my diagnosis, she helped me understand how meds can be of help
3. I was apprehensive about the side effects and the fact that she explained me about the possible side effects before hand gave me a lot of confidence. Thankfully I didnt experience any side effects, but it was still nice that she had a discussion about them.
4. She prescribed only two meds and gave me one as and when required med, and I liked not being prescribed a buck load of meds which has become the trend off late with many docs
5. Even during months when I didn't feel much improvement, she kept on encouraging me and told me how meds take sometime before working. The whole experience where I felt that my docs (both her and my therapist) are genuinely concerned for me was very encouraging during my difficult time.
Some problems that i faced-
1. The duration of consultation is around 20 min and she usually sticks to that. Although I understand that the next patient is often waiting, probably longer consult durations may be better at least on some occasions.
2. It's almost impossible to talk to her on Phone. Although to be fair to her, she always responded to what's app messages .
3. The cost of each consultation remains the same.
Despite these things, overall I feel it was a life changing experience for me. As I was able to get out of that dark phase of my life and have now stopped the medicines. I would always be grateful to Dr Priyanka for getting me out of the rut. In case anyone is reading this, please don't be shy of visiting a psychiatrist if needed, and if your live in Delhi NCR , I strongly recommend that you see Dr Priyanka goyal mam.
I am writing this review after getting completely recovered from my disease with God's grace, my family and friends support and ofcourse the amazing treatment from Dr. Priyanka Goyal. I started my treatment with her from 16th July, 2019 after almost 11 months of struggling with my health condition myself. Although, I now regret that I was too late to start the treatment and was kind of sure at the back of my mind that nothing in this world can heal me now and it is part of my karma or my destiny to live the rest of my life like it. But, it all comes out to be wrong in a positive way.As it is rightly said that better late than never. Being a lady doctor, I was not also very comfortable with her sharing about my health issues and experiences completely. My brother took me to consult with her forcefully. Now, the treatment part. She started talking to me in my first visit, and tried to understand my mental and physical state. After almost 25 minutes of discussion, she realized that I am not even in the state of having a conversation and requested me to wait outside and discussed more details with my brother. She called me back and assured me that this state is temporary and we can definitely get over it. It happens with a lot of people in current stressful lifestyle. It is totally curable. Just have faith. I still did not believe what she said to me. But, as the time gradually passed, I started to have better sleep than before and my other symptoms also started to get reduced. She strongly suggested to take a break from my work as it was doing anything but help in my health condition and negative impact on my work performance at the same time. But, I decided to continue it as I used to live alone at that time and do not want to feel alone for complete days. She respected that and suggested not to over burden myself with work and said it is just a temporary state. I can have a bad year at work but I can definitely cover it later. Everything is temporary and of less importance than my health. But, also she still suggested to have small break from work. She was also very co-operative with my Mother and Brother during the consultation sessions, a good listener and tried to explain the medication reasons and change of dosage and update of medicines based on my and my family feedback. I confess that I was not being completely open to the doctor in my first visit, but with time she felt me to be more convenient to share my health condition in its full entirety. She also suggested strongly that I should have patience with my treatment and should not skip my medicines at all. The treatment will take time for getting completely healed (of around 6 months) and here I am writing my experience and journey of treatment. She also gave personal suggestions to me and my family like for my mother/father to stay with me for sometime, to have some sort of relaxing activities like listening to music, exercise, etc. daily so that my life can come back to normal as soon as possible and she can hence reduce the medicine dosage accordingly. Regular consultation and feedback really helped improve my health state day by day. Some emergency medicines were also prescribed by her in case of unavoidable circumstances like no sleep at all or no focus at all or for involuntary body movements or uncontrollable thoughts which were to be taken only when the situation is out of control. Luckily, I had to take very few of them. Also, the temporary side-effects of the medicines was very well explained by her. She also discussed in detail about my previous health history if any or any other disease that I may have been suffering from past some time and could have the impact on my current health state or triggered something negatively. The appointments keeps on getting distant apart as my health keeps on improving. I hada a gap of two months in my last two appointments. I am feeling better than normal now. And I am totally healed as per her. :)
In case of any signs or symptoms of the disease again, she told me to reconsult immediately. I hope this situation never arises in future. I get to meet her again but not for the consultation but in rather pleasant circumstances. :) God bless her _/\_. She happened to be my first psychatrist and I thank God that I got a very brilliant one :)
I bless her with more success and happniees in life. I would have prayed for her to get more patients but I would not do that for obvious reasons :D. Although, we know that in our current lifestyle and influence of multiple cultures and thought process, there are cases like this. At the last, I would like to say that I am more than convinced now that this disease of depression is just a temporary unwanted phenomena and it is curable with Personal strength, your loved ones love and prayers and proper medical treatment.
Accept it and get it fixed. And in case you have any other thought than this, I will be more than Happy to change it :) :)
It will b appropriate to share the experience after more visits. We had only two visits so far.
Only people who have mental health issues know how much they have to suffer. It took me 3 years to accept that i have a problem, i was having what is called as obsessive compulsive disorder for almost 4 years and i could start treatment only last year. Initially i saw a psychiatrist at lucknow, where i reside, but didnt feel any improvement. I was told about Dr Priyanka Goyal by my friend who lives in delhi and had taken treatment from her. I had to take train to see her everytime as her clinic is noida but it was so worth it.
The best thing about Dr Priyanka is that she follows a very clear approach, she told me briefly about how brain chemicals like serotinin are responsible for such disorders and why we need to take treatment. I was very scared of side effects however she made me comfortable by telling about the low possibility of any such side effecs. I did feel some gastric issues for first 2 weeks but even that was managed using gas pills.
After around 3 months of medical treatment i also started taking sessions from a psychologist mam who works with dr priyanka . The combined treatment really helped me a lot. In the first one month , i didnt feel much improvement but after that things started to improve,
After around 1 year, i cant say that i am 100% cured but definitely improvement is more than 90 percent. The great thing about this journey was i felt that my doctor understands me and is genuinely concerned with my improvement . Later on she would call me once a month only for follow ups as it was difficult for me to travel more frequently. I am highly thankful to priyanka mam, and would also like to tell patients with OCD that take treatment as soon as possible and get out of this illness.
Dr Priyanka did attended us Very well, She was very professional while counselling and discussing the symptoms and treatment plan. she has been absolutely cooperative while listening to our problem and understanding us.
Dr Priyanka is my third psychiatrist. I have been having symptoms of OCD for last 11 years and have tried treatment twice. Finally met mam around 4 months back. The best quality of hers was her clarity of thought. She immediately told me that it will take some time before medicines can show effect and asked me to wait, I must say that its a frustrating thing to wait for symptoms to get better. But finally I did start feeling well. My improvement has been steady and although I still cant say that I am completely cured but for sure , I am better by 80 percent. Dr Priyanka explains the reason for changes in dosage and I feel that she doesnt prescribe unnecessary pills. She also has a therapy doctor who took my sessions, and the sessions have also been helpful. A couple of things that could be improved, she is not usually available on phone, and if one has any doubt, the staff asks to whats app the doctor. I wish we could have a quick converstaion but I guess that since she is with other patients, that doesnt happen. Also fees is slightly on higher side. In fact all psychiatrists have higher fees in comparison to other doctors
Doctor was understanding and a keen listener
Suggested good options for the treatment to process...
I was referred to Dr Priyanka by my psychologist, I was taking regular sessions but since I didnt improve my therapist felt that I should meet a psychiatrist and start meds. I was extremely apprehensive about the use of psychiatry meds but I have improved a lot in last 3 months.
Dr priyanka is a very nice doctor, she started my medical treatment. The best thing was that she very calmly explained me about the medicines and gave the minimum pills. She is quite cooperative and won my confidence in the first meeting itself. The best part was seeing so many 'normal' people sitting in the clinic and waiting for their appointment. That gave me a lot of confidence that I am not the only one who is having this problem and others have it too. The treatment has been really helpful and side by side my therapy sessions are on . Few suggestions-
a. I wish the fees was less in followup visits. Spending around thousand bucks in every visit is sometimes difficult
b. Although my waiting time was never more than 15-20 minutes but I wish there was a TV in waiting area
But overall, I am very happy with the treatment experience. I am happy spending some extra money if my doc is good and she is really good.
I just had the fourth visit with Dr Priyanka Goyal. Taking treatment for OCD. Taking medicines for 2 months now and I must say that I have got my life back. OCD is such a bad illness, and it destroys a person's life complete. I kept on avoiding medicines but realised I ended up increasing my illness because of it. Dr. Goyal is a really great doctor , she clearly told me that I need meds and explained in details why I should start meds. She is the first doctor who actually discussed the possible side effects of meds and told me what to do if I have them. Thankfully there were no side effects. She appears to be genuinely concerned with the well being of the patient and her confidence gave me a lot of confidence.
A couple of things I didn't like includes the fact that the fees is slightly on higher side and same fees is charged in every single visit. I think follow up visits should be cheaper. Also, it's not possible to talk to doctor on phone. She is always with patients. However, overall her treatment has changed my life and I am happy paying a little extra too, if I get an honest doctor like her. Thanks a lot mam
