My first time experience of visiting a psychiatrist is not so good. Before I visited Dr. Gujavarty's office, I tried to call his number to ask about his treatment method and strategy, but no one answer the call. I left amessage and no one call me back. Although I was impressed by Dr. Gujavarty's rich experience and background, but I couldn't feel he really care about his first time visitor. The whole process of this session is more like a chatting dominated by him. 40 minutes were mostly spent on his advice of being positive. No serious diagnosis was given, just a recommendation of a book about happiness. Waste of time and hope. I hope I could get happiness by reading this book, although I doubt it a little. No second time.

Dr. Gujavarty is a great psychiatrist. He's caring, listens, and does whatever he can to help. The longest I've waited in the waiting room was 5 minutes. Usually he's waiting for me. I highly recommend him.

He has a very layed back approach to my matters. Often neglecting that there are needs for increases in my dosages of medication which often is required by most Dr.'s to get your adjustments correct. I'm working with hi how ins min. Increase which still is not the correct dosage for my condition as of yet but we're working on it. Very very Slowley. My concern is it might be a bit to slow for my pace of life. This may be something I should look into changing if my treatment does not get better soon.
