Dr. Mitra is fantastic. He listens and really works to understand how you are feeling. I have been to several psychiatrist and thought there was nothing new for me to learn, but I learned so much from Dr. Mitra. He isout of network for me, so I can no longer afford to see him, but I highly recommend him to anyone who can.
