Verified Patient Reviews
Very polite and professional, easy to talk to, and very non-judgemental, offered options and was very nice about it all.
intelligent, flexible, and to the point.
She’s great. Very kind and knowledgeable. Helpful and wants her patients to feel comfortable and succeed.
Terrible on everything. Go to someone else who knows better.
Dr. Gonchigar was a quite engaging individual, but seemed very presumptuous in her demeanor and through the line of questioning during our consultation. I could not even get around to speaking about my symptoms due to her interest in lifestyle specifics. She went on to say, "If all of my pts were as put together as you are, I would be out of business," and was dismissive after learning that I didn't want to go on any medication. The interaction was beyond insulting due to the fact that I indeed have a problem aside from however I may present myself, and medication is not the only form of aid to individuals with issues. I have received talk therapy for a while now, but do not see fit to continue with this doctor due to being put off by our first encounter.
It went smoothly. Dr. Gonchigar was very kind, sensitive, and knowledgeable. I am very excited to start the recommended treatment.
Very personable and left a great first impression for my first appointment.
Everything was great!
Outstanding. Very sympathetic and understanding. Very kind person and provided help right away
Unethical. Rude. Ruined my week.
Exceptional, patient, practitioner. I wish every doctor could exhibit the traits of this physician. The office is well organized and was greeted upon my arrival. At the exact time of my appointment I was greeted and entered the office.
She was a really great psychiatrist. Seemed very caring and understanding and very knowledgeable. I intend on keeping her as my doctor. She showed me some insights and strengths that I was unaware of.
Dr. Gonchigar was an excellent listener and asked relevant, insightful questions. The office staff was polite and professional. I would recommend her practice.
Very pleased with this preliminary discussion.
Today was the worst day I've had in a long time. I wanted to cry from the moment I woke up. I couldn't even bear to look in the mirror. I'm glad that the one person I saw today was Dr. Gonchigar. I felt like she really saw me and wanted to help me in the most authentic sense of the word. It was a human connection, not just a doctor mindlessly prescribing medications. Going back in a week to check in on the meds I'm starting on.
Her diagnosis of my condition was spot on. I didn't have to wait long once I finally got an appointment, it was smooth and easy to get to her office. However, she refused to continue to treat me after an initial trial of medication and refused to sign my medical leave paperwork and kept telling me that I was a liability to her license and called me non-compliant and basically tried to make me look like a bad patient. She still has not followed up with me after I left her office shaking and sobbing because she wouldn't give me medication. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!
It was good, Dr. Gonchigar was easy to talk to, I felt she really listened to my concerns and worked with me to figure out the right plan for me.
I was very impressed with her professionalism and manner.
Dr. Gonchigar was extremely helpful. Very easy to talk to. Provided excellent medical advice/help.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Gonchigar would highly recommend her to others. She is an incredibly emphatic and knowledgeable provider and was able to address each of my questions in a gentle and warm manner. I also appreciated the amount of time she spent with me. I will definitely return for services in the future.
Dr. Gonchigar was wonderful!
She really cares!
Spent no time with me before saying i should stop the medications ive been on for years jsut to "see what happens". Totally unprofressional pushing me to speak aboyt thibgs i said i was not comfortable talking about. I cant believe she attended medical school let alone graduated from it.
Dr Gonchigar is a great listener, friendly, and an all-round great doctor to deal with. I would highly recommend her.
Very easy to talk to. Asked good questions. This was just the first meeting.
Very helpful and compassionate.
She was very nice and she listened all my concerns.
My daughter loved her!!! Will see her on regular basis.
Very easy to work with
She was very kind and attentive. I would definitely recommend her.
She was ready to listen & help without judgment & was able to ask the right questions & keep the conversation pretty much on track, which is truly a struggle for me personally.
Dr. Gonchigar is wonderful. She was very attentive and caring at my appointment, and put me at ease right away.
Very much like a factory, prescribing things after 30 minute consult which is great but she also makies assumptions at times that informs how she prescribes things.
Her office staff is the worst I have ever dealt with. Her secretary is condescending and rude. The doctor charges you for less than 5 minutes of her time. She has 0 empathy. Please, go somewhere else if you want to be treated as a human.
Dr.Hemanjani & her office staff are wonderful. Very pleasant :)
The receptionist was extremely rude and not accommodating
Doctor Conchigar was very patient. I like her very much. This Doctor has a very nice manner and I will return.
Very medication oriented treatment.
Very patient and kind. Made me feel very comfortable.
Her office staff is the worst I have ever dealt with. Her secretary is condescending and rude. The doctor charges you for less than 5 minutes of her time. She has 0 empathy. Please, go somewhere else.
Awesome experience! Felt very comfortable!
Dr Gonchigar was great. She made my 11 year old feel very comfortable and was thorough with her questions and follow up questions. She was open and receptive to my reasons for how I have managed things thus far and gave us some great advice to think about in the months to come. She even took some time to speak with me alone and explained that my well-being and happiness would ultimately affect my daughter. I felt like Dr Gonchigar was concerned about not just the medications, but also the emotional support that my daughter had at home.
I was very pleased with the visit for my daughter. Dr. Gonchigar is a good listener and I felt that she very quickly grasped my daughter's issues.
Listened to my concerns and addressed them in a thoughtful & caring manner. She kept the discussion focused & moved the appointment along to a satisfactory conclusion while staying on topic & answered all of my questions.
She got right to the point and sent me out the door with a perscription, and was very thorough with her questions. We didn't spend a lot of time talking about my symptoms, but she seemed very confident.
Dr.Gonchigar was so kind, compassionate, and empathetic. She listened to me and asked many questions about my symptoms and history. I would highly recommend Dr. Gonchigar!
I was seen quickly and I really appreciated her manner. Felt like she took her time to get to know me, and I never felt rushed. Really listened to what I was saying.
Dr. Gonchigar was incredibly welcoming and listened o my concerns with an understanding that was quite comforting. I highly recommend her!
I think the comments I read about her before scheduling the appointment were accurate. She was very easy to talk to and listened to what I had to say. I was very pleased.
Dr. Gonchigar was a pleasant doctor. She made a point to fully gather my social history and background, which I appreciated. She also made a suggestion about increasing my medication, but when I explained I did not want to, she did not pressure me into the increase. That was very nice. The only concern I have for meeting with Dr. Gonchigar is she kept interrupting me and asking questions, before I had a chance to full explain my story and would have answered her questions anyway. Other than that, it was a great visit. I will be keeping her as my psychiatrist. Written October 2016.
She was awesome! Easy to talk to and thorough. Highly recommend
This was my first visit to Dr. Gonchigar. She was very professional and thorough. Her demeanor was calm and caring.
exactly what you want in a psychiatrist. kind, patient, nonjudgemental and helpful
I only had a few extra papers to sign when I got there. I arrived 5 minutes before my appointment and they took me in on time, and I finished the paperwork after seeing her. She was very nice and easy to talk too. I liked her and she listened to me.
My appointment was everything I was hoping it would be! Dr. Gonchigar was polite, thorough and kind, warm thoughtful and welcoming, and has helped me with my overwelming anxiety, to the point where I'm starting to
To start off, I arrived to Dr. Gonchigar's office 20 minutes late. I spoke to her regarding my appointment, and asked her if I could still be seen. She said yes. We spoke, but the appointment ended early. Then, she said she wouldn't be able to help me (give me meds) because she couldnt provide a full diagnosis in the 20 minutes we sat in her office. In those 20 minutes, she inquired of very personal details and I left feeling very uncomfortable about our conversation and her behavior at the end. I have been to many other mental health professionals and they never determine the treatment sufficiency based on the number of minutes, but rather the substance of the conversation. I do not recommend this provider. She proceeded to bill me as having had a full diagnosis, and for giving me medication!! Don't go!!!
Didn't remember who I was or what I was there for. It was like I had to explain everything to her all over again.
Felt very rushed and do not completely agree with diagnosis. I felt like she was making an issue out of things that aren't an issue in my life. I will try and keep an open mind to see where this goes.
Waiting three months to get a prescription refill from my current doctor was not an option. Dr. Gonchigar had a last minute cancellation listed on Zocdoc. She was able to see me the same day. Her kind and professional attention gave me confidence that her practice was right for me. Their ability to use Zocdoc to post available appointments is efficient and a great relief.
As always Dr. Gonchigar was pleasant. I always look forward to seeing her.
She was very nice and accommodating. Very professional and nonjudgmental.
Excellent. Listened attentively to my condition.
I went to Dr Gonchigar three total times. She is one of the worst medical professionals I have ever dealt with. She is very condescending and rude and you will leave questioning the level of her care. I felt humiliated every time I went to see her and the final time I was terrified to even go into her office because I knew we wouldn't get anywhere. She is very argumentative and it seems like she enjoys getting a reaction out of you. Out of the three times I went to see her she failed to call in my prescription twice to my pharmacy, and then proceeded to blame myself and the pharmacy not taking any ownership. I never leave reviews about anything, but to be honest, if I can save someone the trouble of dealing with this woman it is all worth it.
I was really pleased with my visit! She was very personable and I felt vey encouraged.
She was attentive and seemed sincere. I like her.
The doctor was kind and patient. She actually listened to what I had to say. She did not rush me . I did not feel like just any patient because she is personable and seemed to be excited to see me again.
Could not have asked for a worse or more unprofessional experience.
Compassionate, and took the time to listen to my situation before making suggestions. She took my input seriously and answered all of my questions satisfactorily. Definitely recommend.
Dr. Gonchigar was very kind and knowledgable. Waited less than 5 minutes.
very rushed analysis and recommendation Did not seem very keen on helping for whatever reason
Just a little rushed. She does not schedule flex time or room for error in-between patients so do not be late. If your appointment id from 9-9:30, the next appointment starts directly at 9:30 so keep that in mind.
She was great. Reviewed all my medications and made sure I understood her explanations. She's the best. ..
Dr Gonchigar is calm, patient, & kind which instantly puts you at ease in order to discuss personal information about sensitive issues in order to have a effective treatment plan. She took time to listen & discuss the issues at hand in understandable terms, highly recommend!
Dr. G is astute, professional and compassionate.
For my first appointment as a new patient, I arrived 15 minutes early, having already filled out most of the paperwork online. There were a few things that were left blank that needed my attention upon arrival. I filled them out promptly, but Dr. G was running about 15 minutes behind. So in total I spent about 30 minutes or so waiting, but when I was taken in, she was very friendly and polite. She asked me excellent questions and really illuminated some things for me about my condition, which was invaluable. For my second appointment, I banked on her running a few minutes late, as many doctors do (out of no fault of their own - if patients are late, doctors run late). I arrived about 5 minutes *after* my slated time and was taken the second I walked in the door. PERFECT! I will say that appointments tend to run short, about 15 minutes in length. She has many patients that need to be accommodated, so other reviewers have felt rushed, however I appreciate her expedience because I'm often on my lunch break. In and out in 30 minutes or less? Works for me!
Dr. Gonchigar is very professional and easy to talk with, even at a first appointment. She seemed to understand our situation, what is needed and information which is most helpful to us now. Her staff was also pleasant and helpful.
I felt like the doctor didn't even get a proper chance to hear what was going on with me before prescribing meds and sending me on my way. She kept asking why I felt embarrassed and ashamed, and I felt very judged. As a transgender person, I would not recommend to another LGBT person.
Dr. Gonchigar and her staff are incredibly kind and accommodating. The front office staff is incredibly patient in dealing with my crazy schedule/forgetfullness/etc, and I've never had to wait upon arrival. She is ready to see me right away. Dr. Gonchigar is incredibly sympathetic and genuinely interested in how I'm feeling, why I'm feeling it, and what we can do about it. Her care is very collaborative, and she works with me at each appointment to make sure I feel comfortable with the treatment course. She is also very knowledgeable in her field, and has been able to answer all of my questions, give me very deep and applicable information for comparative treatments, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend her!!
I really liked it, unfortunately really expensive to pay a co-pay for every visit. Wish they worked with you.
Professional. Seems to be nice
Dr. Gonchigar was very personable and listened carefully to everything I had to say about what I was going through. She had several different ideas of medication options to try and by the end of the appointment I was satisfied with the plan we laid out for me to try. I am grateful I sought her services.
She seemed generally concerned and eager to help. She explained differences in medicines and side effects, so I was well educated about my treatment options.
The doctor was caring and was a able to relate very well to my 15 year old. She's seems very knowledgable and I would recommend her highly.
Dr. Gonchigar was extremely professional, engaged and compassionate. She is a consumate professional and her entire office staff was extremely friendly and organized. I give her the highest rating. I look forward to collaborating with her on my treatment
I would NOT waste your time seeing this doctor. She had her own agenda and didn't listen to me. Needs to see me again in a week. She was more concerned about my physical deformity than she was with my mental well-being. It was an extremely non-productive appointment.
She was very nice and easy to talk to.
Dr. Gonchigar is a very warm and compassionate doctor. I felt like she really listened to me and I never felt rushed. A+++
Dr. Gonchigar is amazing! She truly listens to the needs and desires of her patients. We drive all the way from MD and it is worth it! Our visits are never rushed and she genuinely wants to know how her patient is feeling and what she can do to help.
The doctor was very professional and kind to my issues. I have scheduled another appointment with her.
Dr G was very helpful and informative. She was kind and truly listened to my concerns and even asked my son how HE felt. We didn't feel rushed and she didn't seem bothered at all by our questions. Before we left she was very concerned with making sure we had a plan for "checking in" before she would be out for the holiday. Just another example of how she showed care/concern. I agree that the staff up front isn't the nicest. Dr G, however, more than makes up for it and the wait was barely 15mins.
Dr. Conchigar was very professional, kind, , it was our initial meeting and was great, and quick. She is listing and answering all the questions very kindly. I recomend her right away. thank you
She is a very understanding doctor and listens well.
Great Dr she really listened to me and made me feel important and justified in what I was There for. Thank you Dr g!!!
Very responsive, sympathetic, genuinely interested
She was good to work with. However, her office staff is extremely rude & tried to overcharge me. Her office manager doesn't listen well in person or in the phone. For this reason, I wouldn't recommend an office visit.
very attentive and thorough.
I had been looking for a doctor closer to home when I found Dr. Gonchigar. On my first visit, she instantly put me at ease and I felt very comfortable talking with her. She explained my options and answered all of my questions. My previous doctors have been rather condescending and dismissive. I am so glad I found Dr. G!
Love this doctor and couldn't ask for better care. She's pleasant and cigs no corners. Highly recommend
Great doctor. Very attentive. Listens to the patient and genuinely tried to come up with the best solution for the issues at hand. Don't be late though!
Dr. Gonchigar is a wonderful doctor!
