Testimonials from Patients:
. Srinivas Kumar - Awesome experience. Felt really better. He was more like a family friend and had a holistic approach. His words and effective therapy approaches have made me take control of my anxiety even though it spawns sometimes.
Doctor is so cool and I myself as a post graduate in psychology, have learnt some coping techniques and strategies from him.
speaking with the doctor has helped me improve in both clinical as well as in academics.
OVERALL IT WAS A SUPERB EXPERIENCE.
. Sheikh Shams Azam - I have been to a lot of Doctors in the past and I suffer from Bipolar Disorder. Dr. Satish really tries to help you. He listens to you. He doesn't get mad if I forgot to take my meds because I do forget sometimes. Also, once I did not have the full amount he charges and he just said Don't worry about it, just pay me the next time. So, the next appointment, I said Here's the money I owe you from the last time and Dr. Satish, just said, Don't worry, it was on me. My question is, Who ever does that? Gives away free visits to the Doctor if you can't make the payment? I think, in my opinion, this proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Dr. Satish really cares about you and he just doesn't try to make money on you like other Doctors. I have seen over the years for my mental problems. Also, I think Dr. Satish is nice and smart too. Really the best Doctor I have ever been to. For me, I will always stick with Dr. Satish because he is the best and he is also a very good person. Its hard to find such kind persons in life.
. First session went smoothly with a few easy to answer questions on background. Then the doctor thoroughly explained the roots of the problem and suggested treatment. I didn't experience any discomfort in being open and honest with the doctor, even with flaws concerning my own character. Will definitely be following up for more. I'm glad I found him.
. He is a very good doctor.Down to earth person. Listens to problems very patiently unlike other doctors . Gives appropriate treatment and suggests several non-medical methods that would help the patient. He talks as if he is one of the family member which increases the confidence in the patient, so that he can express his problems well and get right treatment.
