Dr. Binal Kiran Maharaja, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I am a friendly and insightful psychiatrist who provides compassionate, empathetic care that is tailored to your concerns. I am trained in the use of both psychotherapy and medication management to treat a variety of psychiatric disorders. I have developed expertise in anxiety, trauma, personality disorders and mood disorders including depression and bipolar disorder. From the initial evaluation, my goal is to work flexibly with each person using a comprehensive approach, utilizing a variety of techniques and evidence based medicine to create a personalized treatment plan that suits each individual’s specific needs. Careful attention is paid to details in the person’s past and the influence of biological, psychological, social and environmental factors on mental health. - Winner of Resident Recognition Award for Excellence in Family Oriented Care, from Association of Family Psychiatrists, 2015-2016.

I ended up seeing Alyssa for my visit and she was excellent. Made me feel extremely comfortable and I could tell she genuinely cared about my well-being. I would highly recommend and look forward to my follow up visit. If therewere more out there like Alyssa we wouldn t hear about nearly half the horror stories we do about bad docotrs.

I met with one of her physicians assistants, Meryl, who was wonderful. I felt like she was insightful, thorough and very considerate of my time.

I wasn't impressed, though I understand she's still a young doctor and figuring out how to conduct her practice without the textbook. In our initial consultation, she read several lists of symptoms from the DSM V, to which I would answeryes or no, and when I didn't check all the boxes for one particular disorder, she said she was "kind of at a loss" for what to do. I also didn't appreciate that she would try to finish my sentences when I would pause to find the right word to describe my feelings. Very nice doctor, and I'm sure she'll get better with experience, but I, personally, will not be going back.

I definitely appreciate the fact that she made me feel like I was heard and understood. I think she made recommendations that will improve my life for the better. I trust her judgment and look forward to working with her inthe future. I will strongly recommend her to anyone looking for an outpatient psychiatrist.

She was very professional, extremely insightful and intelligent. She's one of the most compassionate doctors I've ever met, and very approachable and non judgemental. I felt like I could tell her anything. I highly recommend her! She truly cares for her patients
