A pleasure to see
Very friendly Dr and staff. Will enjoy going in to talk to him.
This was one of the only times I've gone to a drs office and not had to wait forever to get in to see the dr. Once I got in he talked to me for a while about what was bothering me and I actually felt like he listened and took my opinion into consideration when deciding what the best options for me might be. I would highly recommend this place, very efficient and friendly staff who seems to actually care about your needs. He prescribed me what we decided would be best for me and then said we can adjust anything if it doesn't work or feel right for me on my next visit. The dr was very kind and I look forward to using him for now on as my recurring psychiatrist.
Great Dr. Answered all of my question and took the time to listen to my concerns.
I had my first appointment with Dr. I. Rasul and I can not stress how professional he was along with his office staff. He spoke to me with a very kind voice which put me at ease as I am new to Florida and was seeking a Psychiatrist. After spending at least an hour reading up on different Doctors and their reviews on line I made one appointment and that was with Dr. Rasul. I was highly impressed by his credentials and background...yes there were some bad reviews on him but you need to take those reviews lightly and wonder why he was rated poorly. He is a very intelligent Doctor! Dr. Rasul was beyond professional, talked to me like I was a human-being and also had a warm smile. I will continue to see Dr. Rasul and am very thankful that I found him! If you are seeking sincere help he is the Doctor for you!
Had a great visit with this doctor! Will be seeing him again soon.
He was very professional. He explained my diagnosis and explained the treatment. He explained each medication what it is used for and how effective it is.
Great doctor!!! I would definitely recommend.
Dr. Rasul is the best Psychiatrist I have ever been to. I have low sodium. It has caused some anxiety issues. I found out that all of the medications that I had been previously given can lower my sodium even more!!! Dr. Rasul advised me that I would never be put on a medication again that could affect my health in that way. He gave me a list of medications that I should never, ever take, so that I am well informed on my own. He is very knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. Do not hesitate to travel a little further to see him, especially if you live in the Mount Dora/Eustis/Leesburg area. There is only one clinic available to you in that area across from Florida Hospital Waterman, and they are the ones that kept giving me the incorrect medication!
Dr. Rusal was very helpful, kind and thorough. This was my first appointment with him and he took plenty of time with me. He is going to be my regular psychiatrist.
Professional and approachable
It's sad when a doctor has a preconceived notation before they even speak to a patient. My last 3 doctors over the last 3+ years prescribed a medication that worked better than anything else I have tried. Unfortunately, since the doctor did not believe in it for the treatmen of ADHD in adults instead of being open to a patients opinion on what works for them he instead completely tried to change all my medications at a time in my life when the last thing I need is to play around with what might or might not work.
He was very kind and was knowledgeable.
