I just moved here from DC and have been looking for a new dr for medication management. Dr. Rasul listened to my concerns and made recommendations to improve my current regimen. Unlike another provider I saw in the area, he didn’ttry to change all of my medications at once and suggested taking things slowly to see what works best for me. I really appreciated that. Even though he does not participate with my insurance, I have decided to continue seeing him. Plus, he offers telemedicine appointments and online scheduling - very helpful for busy professionals.

Not for me it was not so much him as the entire set up... I did not realize I was making an appointment to teleconference and Zocdoc did not do a good job at making this clear. As well as thestaff at piedmont behavioral service did not speak clear English and was a able to give me clear information or instructions. I will never ever use either service again. Nice try but failed!

I understand that his role is to manage medications and diagnoses. I was very anxious but he put me at ease. He was pleasant & I would recommend him.

I was very pleased with my experience. Dr. Rasul delivered quality care and devoted a great deal of time discuss all of my concerns. I felt at ease while under his care, and was very impressed with both his bedside manner and knowledge base. I would highly recommend.

He is NOT a warm, caring, compassionate doctor nor is he a good listener. He's quick to make judgements calling me a "confused" person within the first five minutes of our meeting. No, I would tell people to stay away from this so-called doctor who barely speaks intelligible English.

I arrived for my appointment and was completely ignored by his receptionist for a solid 10 minutes. I made eye contact with him and he finally stood up and got out of his office to give me a chart (even thoughI had already filled out all of this information via zocdoc prior to the appointment) and left me to wait for another 15 minutes. It seemed as if they were purposefully doing this exercise to test me (no one else in the office, last patient walked out as I entered, receptionist stayed hidden behind the partition entire time). I explained to him in detail my patient history and the circumstances that led me to his care. He kept recommending switching my medication to buproprin, even though I am not suffering from depression. After reassuring me that the red tape around prescribing certain controlled substances out of state ( I travel 100% for my job) wouldn't be an issue and that he totally understood my situation, he ended up abandoning me by refusing to call in or drop a script in the mail. It's a sad state of affairs when our mental health professionals aren't able or willing to file a patient's script "for fear of being audited." At least that's the excuse they provided as justification for not doing their job. The whole process is infuriating and j understand that the doctors hands are somewhat tied but your grossly incompetent interpretation of the law is going to end in someone getting seriously hurt. You've seen me less than 4 weeks ago! I offered you my entire patient history! You slipped a drug test into my scripts and told me it was to check for a deficiency! I spoke with you at length about my circumstances and gave you no indication that I was drug seeking or some dirtbag junkie, but that's how I was treated from the moment I walked into that office. Some part of me also thinks that some of these "professionals" end up hating their jobs and their debt and start to get some sort of sadistic satisfaction from withholding meds from their "patients".

Dr Rasul, did a great job of listening intently to me first before putting together a comprehensive treatment plan that not only includes medication but counseling as well. I appreciated his staff including his office manager that is very friendlyand professional. Over all I felt like I was in great hands.

He was extremely kind, professional and listened to my needs. I have been searching for a qualified Psych for a while and he is the one I will be sticking with. He also made a promo appointment for me to seea counselor that "fit my needs"!. I am so grateful he was there on a Sunday- with my work schedule it's hard to fit doctor appointments in.

Very impressed with Dr. Rasul. Actually came out of his office to meet me for my first visit. Very gracious manner. I chose Dr Rasul primarily because of his fine credentials and experience. My choice was validated by the content and quality of my intake office visit.

Dr. Rasul was knowledgeable with a great bedside manner. Hard qualities to find. I had searched for 2 weeks to locate a psychiatrist and all the waits were extreme. We needed a same day appointment and I was so thankful he could fit us in!

This was my initial visit, but I'll certainly be going back. He was comfortingly professional, very understanding, and not remotely 'robotic' at all (as some other psychiatrists I've been to have been).
