I am a Cornell-trained/Columbia-affiliated psychiatrist with over 10 years of experience practicing psychiatry in Manhattan. I offer years of experience and advanced clinical training, and I look forward to working together to help you feel better and meet your goals. You can find more information about me and my practice at www.drguptapsychiatry.com. I emphasize timely communication and will quickly return phone calls and emails. My style is warm, engaging, and personable. I work with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and many different walks of life, including executives, technology specialists, entrepreneurs, artists & entertainers, academics, medical professionals, students, and full-time parents. Entering treatment can be an intimidating process, and I have successfully treated many people who are new to psychiatric care. I completed my undergraduate and medical education at the prestigious accelerated BA/MD program at The George Washington University. I trained in psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical Center. As a resident, I helped establish treatment for victims of the Asian Tsunami in Sri Lanka in 2005 and worked as a chief resident of the inpatient psychiatric unit. Following residency, I pursued advanced fellowship training in Forensic Psychiatry at NYU Medical Center. In 2014, I received the Nancy CA Roeske Teaching Award, given each year to a psychiatrist who has made outstanding and sustaining contributions to medical student education. I am currently a Clinical Assistant Professor at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. I teach and supervise physicians and medical students from NYU and Columbia, present at national conferences, and recently created a documentary film with colleagues.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Gupta is remarkable at his trade. His demeanor is consistently even. He truly allows you to work through each session however you'd like, and provides you with simple helpful tools over time. Dr. Gupta is open to communication and questioning. It is evident he cares about what he does and truly is invested in the growth of his patients. He's a cool, easygoing person too!
I saw Dr. Gupta for a year and a half or so. I went to him and was going through severe anxiety. I was on a tremendous amount of meds (overmedicated), and he helped to get me off of them. I am now doing great.
Really excellent, both his approach to medication and the talk therapy sessions I have done with him have been extremely helpful.
Dr. Gupta has been fantastic. He is an amazing clinican and honestly helped me through a tough period in my life. I highly reccomend him as a provider and cannot emphasize enough how helpful he has been.
Dr. Gupta called me right after I made my appointment to confirm and get a bit of info, which I thought was cool. In my appointment, he was thorough, respectful, and extremely easy to talk to. When we discussed the possibility of a new Rx for me (one that might have positive side-effects for me, a UC/Crohn's patient that I didn't know about) he got all my GI doctors' names, plus the name of my former psychiatrist in Chicago, as I've recently moved to NYC. I've seen a lot of doctors in my life; this sort of thoroughness is not necessarily the standard. He gets high marks from me (and more appointments.)
This person was more helpful in a 90 minute session than the combined 6 months of therapy I'd experienced before. Steep price but he volunteered cheaper recommendations for further treatment after the initial analysis.
Very friendly, makes even a newbie feel comfortable--looking forward to further interactions.
