My wife is a Paranoid schizophrenia patient and has a history of more than 10 yrs with 4 suicide attempts as-off now. And during this COVID-19 pandemic Lock-down her illness got more worsen since she had discontinued her medication long back.
She got more violent and use to shout and abuse everyone staying in our society. It became a very tough situation for me to control her everyday and only thing needed was to get her hospitalized and start her medicines.
I was very helpless since no hospital was ready to admit any new mental patients due to the lock-down restrictions around.
After struggling and trying every reference possible for more than a month my family doctor refereed me to Dr. Riddesh Maru who really helped me to take the necessary steps to get my wife hospitalized and to start her treatment.
I visited his clinic and explained him the whole drastic situation my wife was going through.Now she is under medication and slowly recovering.
Dr. Maru is a very friendly, experienced and a helpful person. He not only helped my wife to get out of the situation but stopped me getting panic.
I'm really thankful to Dr.Riddesh Maru and will strongly recommend to contact him if you are suffering from any mental illness.
Frankly I was hesitant to visit Psychiatrist.
Dr. Maru made me comfortable and he made me realize about my problem gravity and at the same time assured me about recovery.
His treatment showed step by step improvement in my behavior first and later my alcohol and cigarettes went down.
He motivated me and improved my confidence. Now I am sober and able to work well.
I thank him and also recommend him.
My mother was suffering from anxiety and fears. She was frequently getting restless. We had visited few other doctors but the desired results weren't achieved. There was no improvement in her. Finally, we got know about Mr.Maru who had excellent reviews. We took her to him. He turned out to be a humble, polite and a very positive kind of person. He made us feel easy and rest assured us of curing my mother and speedy recovery. With every course there was a tremendous change in her and finally within 6 months.. she's almost out of it n fine. ** *** **** ****** * ********* a God and we appreciate his kindness, Hardwork, the strength he gave to my mother, the dedication, simply admirable.
Thank you Doctor for all the support, treatment,positive energies you gave us and most importantly the fastest results..
I took my student of 9 Std Dheeraj Sahu. He had serious memory,learning,memory,confidence issues.Also a well known affair with a girl from another school.We came to know in the first visit itself the student has learning disability issues.
There is a school called national open school,also a certificate from SION hospital,LD clinic.Dheeraj 's
performance IQ was good in IQ test. So was diverted to take up technical education after 10.
With 2-3 counselling sessions,confidence level was awesome, child started sharing issues & doubts.
Moreover the affair with the girl vanished like.He has many friends now & is happy all the time.
The Dr is extremely patient. His medications actually are problem resolution driven. His regular followups help change medicines which start suiting your body and health. His counselling actually helped me in managing my family relations and marital life much much better manner and my level of logical understanding theu his counsellibg sessions plus medicines helped me come out. Anger mngt. Was an important part of his treatment which he had started for me.
His friendly nature..giving you alone time to discuss all kinds of problems in private gives the confidence to trust the Dr.
Started treatment for depression 15 months back and had really good progress. Had a combination of medication and therapy. The clinic is flexible with appointments, doctor gives prescribed medicine from his office itself and charges the MRP.
Price- reasonable. Never prescribed expensive medicines
Attitude - Friendly & approachable. Always available on call even on days I don't have appointment and on holidays
Special note regarding treatment in lockdown- Had all therapy sessions on video call and sent my medicines via parcel to my residence
The doctor is amazing. Not only he understands you and your condition, but relates to you and YOUR understanding of the world. The only reason the waiting time is a little long is BECAUSE he gives every patient the time the patient needs and he hears him/her out. The medication prescribed by him are on point without any side effects. The doc. Always makes sure to receive the call or call back if he is busy and instruct you on the meds. To take if any discomfort faced. Lastly the medication provided by him as a service, and during this Covid situation, the online appointment and @ home delivery of medicines is amazing. You can literally share ANYTHING with the doc. And be assured that he's not the one who is going to judge you. Lastly he knows how your brain functions better than you yourself do

I some how convinced myself to see a psychiatrist this time and that's when I came across with name of Dr.riddhesh Maru on internet.I took an appointment and visited him.I discussed about the condition of my mental health and gave him some information about my past life. After the session he gave me medicine I didn't had cash so I said I will pay online and came out.As soon as I came out doctor Maru came out of his cubical and asked in a very strange manner did u pay the money and I said I am paying through paytm .strange behavior of doctor
My father had become forgetful. We thought it was because of his age. But soon he started getting suspicious and behaved abnormally. He had weird talks that no one would get. It was scary. And harmful for all of us. Especially my mom.. She used to b alone T home. We consulted our physician. He directed us to Dr. Riddhish. He diagnosed schizophrenia.. And explained us every thing about it. The medication.. Counseling.. Is on. There is a lot of improvement. We know how to handle him now. And he too is aware of his condition and is an active participant in the management process. We thank doctor for all this.
Because of lot of work pressure and competition at work, I had no social or family life. I gradually became lonely and was stressed all the time to perform well at office. I slipped in not depression as a result started having suicidal thoughts out of frustration. My friend got me to dr. Riddhish Maru. Sir handled my case with ease patience and calmness. The clinic ambience is also soothing. Sir gave me ample time . His medicines and counselling got back the positivity and confidence that had gone missing from me. Am back to work with more vigour. And back to my social circle like never before. Thanx sir for your help.
