Just read some of the reviews posted here and whatever has been praised about Dr.Borkar and his treatment is nearly what I have experienced in my case. He actually explains you in detail about illness, its symptoms, treatment, even about how to handle a patient unlike other doctors. Best thing about Dr.Borkar is that he gives you enough time and explains each and everything in very effective manner so that we can get the things easily. He always responds to your call & gives you sufficient time.
Focuses not only on mental health but also on physical health of the patient.
He always says that a treatment should not be monotonous bcoz its all about a teamwork and believe me guys, this principle works very well for patient's improvement.
Lastly I should not lack to share this..
I have visited many doctors, taken treatment from very renowned and senior doctor, that too for very long time but not seen much improvement.
Since few months I have been taking dr. Borkar's treatment and the improvement is much more impressive and we are satisfied with the entire way of his treatment.
My overall experience has been great. I was almost under depression and I was lucky enough to connect with him at the right time. He has been very friendly and been guiding me every time I reached out to him irrespective of our scheduled session timings. I guess I have evolved already and become better in almost 2 sessions along with the medicines prescribed. He assured me that there are no side effects of any prescribed medicines. I would definitely recommend Dr. Amod for all the possible treatments.
I highly recommend to visit Amod Borkar because of my personal experience because one visit turned very much fruitful and productive for me. He highly possesses -
1) He renders abundant time and space for every patient personally to listen to their problems and deriving solutions to them.
2)He establishes that comfort zone where a patient feels "expressing problem with a friend rather than a psychiatrist"
***** ******** **** ********** ***** **** ******** ****** * ***** **** ** ***** as I am already witnessing the desired output.
A one-liner for the patients-
"Visit Him, get problems Trimmed , regain your Vim!"
Very friendly, genuine at his work.
He extended his support 24*7, which boosted me in self attempts to recover from my issues.
He has a good sense of humor, appointment with him does't make feel like an appointment with a psychiatrist. It's like a date with a friend.. so I am always eager for the appointment. :D
Though it is my feeling which enables me to express the issues in relaxed mood but he stays best in his role of a psychiatrist.
What else you want ? A friend who teach you how to heal on your own when you are on the way to depression!!
My experience with Dr Amod Borkar was simply amazing. He makes you feel so much at ease that it feels as if you are talking to a friend. He understands your complaints very well and adresses them all. He explains about your disease and about the treatment and removes all fears regarding it. He is one of the few doctors who gives ample time to all his patients.
Also he is empathetic and passionate towards his profession and gives his evrything to it.
So all and all he is an excellent doctor and i would recommend him to everyone needing help in this area.
It was very nice of doctor to see us in lockdown period at his home. He is very friendly and explained us in detail about the illness and how we should be dealing with patient in our day to day life. Also gave us certain neuro exercises which we can get done from patient and explained how they help in this illness and we are already seeing much improvement. Thanks a lot!
he is extremely friendly and cool. Felt very comfortable talking to him and the talks itself reduced the stress from the mind. He is a great listener and will give his 200% in your talks. I wish the session had never ended (hahahahahahahhahaha) 100% recomended by me!
