Patient reviews for Dr. Binal Kiran Maharaja
Polite front desk staff and practitioners
I'm very happy that I found Dr. Maharaja. I've had a long history of psychiatrists and she is by far the one the I felt most comfortable with right away. She is very friendly, great at listening, insightful, and accommodating to your needs. I'd definitely recommend her!
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 there were 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.
Dr. Maharaja is a God send! I have always struggled to share my life experiences with doctors, but she genually cares about her patient's well-being. Simply the best!!
Absolutely incredible doctor-- she made me feel at home and at ease within moments. I don't have enough positive things to say about her and my experience!
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 answer yes 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.
LOVE. THIS. DOCTOR.
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 in the 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
Excellent, attentive, kind -- and clearly knows her psych modalities! I recommend her highly to all, despite the risk I might never being able to get an appt again!
