The doctor was very understanding and knowledgable about my condition and circumstances. E. C.
My visit was fine however this doctor has completely dropped off the face of the earth. His office has not returned any of my calls in five days. My prescription ran out and I am left stranded.
Well my caseworker made my appointment 2 months ago and gave all my insurance info.. Then i show up today and they tell me they don't take my insurance. .i was so pissed..i traveled over a hour and didnt get seen.. Then the dr tells me he can see me this obe time but xant do any gollow ups
Short to none wait time, very knowledgeable and informative Dr, and friendly staff. Dr truly understands his patients needs and issues.
EXTREMELY PATIENT AND CARING. The receptionist was very pleasant , there was no wait time. They ordered my medicine right away from cvs. Looking forward to my next visit in 2 months..
Excellent doctor: no nonsense, very pragmatic, and understanding.
Really excellent doctor. By far the best psychiatrist I've ever seen. He is never too fast to push meds, and is always super friendly and professional.
The provider advertises being in network for several insurance providers, INCLUDING the provider that I currently use. However, after several visits, I went onto my insurance provider's website and saw that I am being billed for these appointments. This is completely unacceptable.
The doctor is very nice and professional, office clean , all workers nice and helpful, doctor talk to patient without rush, listen to all problems and explain the diagnosis. I am very happy I decided to go to this doctor
It was my first time seeking a psych evaluation for anxiety and depression which I had been dealing with for over a year. I put it off due to being nervous about finding the right doctor who cared and thought I could handle it on my own. Dr. Elangovan listened to my whole history, kept me on track with getting down to my symptoms and made me understand why I need to treat my symptoms. He was extremely friendly, comfortable to talk to and genuinely cared that I had been suffering for so long and just wanted to help get me better. I gladly will be seeing him again.
Very knowledgeable doctor. Looking forward to feeling better on his treatment plan.
He is very friendly and polite. No wait time. Very impressed with the treatment.
He truly is unbelievable. First time ever I'm looking forward to my next appointment. Highly recommended.
Very caring and pleasant person. Very good diagnosis. Made me feel comfortable
He's a very good man, excellent doctor with a calming demeanor who offers sound advise.
This Doctor Was Caring, Compassionate And Extremely Professional And Friendly. He Took The Time To Listen Carefully And Was Completely Able And Willing To Go The "Extra Step" In Helping Me. I Would Highly Recomend This Caring Talented Professional. This Is One Physician You Can Trust!
It was very pleasant, he really good at what he does.
Dr. is very pleasant and professional. Made me feel comfortable right away. He did not rush threw the appointment. I was a little cautious because of my background in dealing with mental health providers , but I have to say he really showed me that not all Dr's are alike.I will continue with him until I feel better
Dr. Elangovan was excellent. Put me at ease and was very thorough with his explanations.
He was very caring and concern. He was very honest but informative also giving me hope that things will get better. i can't wait till my next appointment with him. i highly recommend him to anyone out there that is looking for a caring physician.
Very understanding & insightful.
Dr. Elangovan was very helpful and understanding.
Went very well
Dr. Elongovan is a most compassionate and knowledgeable psychiatrist. He sincerely cares about his patients, is a great listener and often shares his very helpful perspective on specific situations which guides his patients to yield positive results. I highly recommend him for both adolescents and adults in need of a caring and helpful psychiatrist.
Very pleasant and genuinely concerned.
Definitely listens and cares . Great Dr.
excellent as always
Made me feel comfortable and not just another bill to the insurance company. Well versed and listened to my wishes as a patient. Great doctor. The only downside was scheduling - small mishap and I wish they offered morning hours- however works for an evening Doctor.
Professional. Great listener. He's inquisitive and knows what to prescribe when you explain your deepest thoughts. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a compassionate Doctor. Thanks to Zoc doc that I found him!
This was my first visit and the dr made me feel at ease. Very easy to open up to. Would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Elangovan is a very kind and caring psychiatrist. He gets right to the issue, zeroes in on a recommended regimen of medication. But if you are looking for talk therapy, he is the wrong doctor. He is a psychopharmacologist, which is all I need right now. No couch, no talking about your mother, no useless and endless analysis of why you are what you are. Just effective pharmaceutical treatment. So, not for everybody.
Extremely pleasant disposition. Crammed front office, adequate waiting area providing there aren't more than a few people waiting. His office where he meets with you is large...a little too brightly lit but that's nitpicking.
Excellent doctor, I didn't feel rushed. He listened and was very compassionate and willing to give me the help that I so longed for since leaving my doctor in manhattan. I will definitely recommend him to others. Have an appointment with him in two weeks and I look forward to seeing him again.
Dr. Elangovan has a very compassionate bedside manner. he is easy to talk to and shows the appropriate level of concern.
I have seen psychologists and a few psychiatrists over the years. Dr. Elangovan is the calmest, easiest to speak with, and most re-assuring one I have ever consulted with. He cuts right to the chase, is very clear about his treatment plan and medication dosage. A naturally kind and caring doctor; just natural. His "vibe" is ideal for anyone nervous about seeing a shrink for the first time.
Dr. E. made this visit very relaxing and easy. He was very patient and understanding . He is very nice man and caring physician. I was very happy .
Very friendly and polite. Unlike with many others, I did not feel like he was trying to rush me out of the office. He listened to my concerns and made jokes to make me feel at ease. Very nice doctor.
I've never been to a psychiatrist before and it lol all my strength and courage to do this and felt right at home .
Dr. Elangovan was very kind and non judgemental. He took the time to address questions and concerns and called me back promptly when I needed some clarification on a medication.
Dr. Elangovan is a very friendly doctor with great bedside manner. He listens to what I have to say and it is not just about medication management. I am very lucky to have him close to my house.
Please overall. Going back for follow-up in two weeks.
Very professional and friendly. Easy to talk to and knowledgable. He smiles and laughs too! It put me at ease to meet a doctor who isn't so stuffy. Staff is pleasant. Would definitely recommend.
He is welcoming. Make patient feel comfortable. Grip on his profession. I highly recommend him. He seems best doc.
I thought he was wonderful. It is refreshing to see a Psychiatrist who has compassion for his patients.
It was good
very good doctor
Dr.Elangovan was very professional and direct with great energy.. Very easy to talk too..
He was very understanding I was impressed I have another appt Tues Oct 20
It was very warming and I felt comfortable dealing with the Doctor
Wait time was over half an hour. Once in the office, Dr. Elangovan did not spend more than 15 minutes for a first consultation. Furthermore, he kept asking me which medication I wanted to try since I had "already tried pretty much everything." If I knew which medication to take, I wouldn't need a consultation, would I?
The staff is completely incompetent. They ordered incorrect perscriptions, never called me back or related information to my doctor. They rarely answer the phone and on two occasions I had to show up in person on my day off just to let the receptionist know I needed my script refilled because neither I or my pharmacist could reach them by phone or receive a call back
Very caring and knowledgeable man. I would definately recommend his practice.
Very comfortable Easy to talk to I understood our goals Looking forward to a follow up
Dr. Elangovan was very kind, attentive, and professional. He took time to explain things to me, and he listened very carefully to my story. He made me feel comfortable, and he worked with me to decide what the best treatment would be for me.
doesnot call back patients or family members
I've been seeing Dr Elangovan for several years and each visit is helpful. Excellent dr/patient communication skills and is genuinely concerned w patients
Dr Elangovan is very approachable and easy to talk to. Explains things in a way that you can understand. No medical jargon.
He was very interested in my case and listened to me any made sugestions to help me.
Doctor Elangovan was on time for my appointment. His receptionist was very polite and concerned. His professionalism was beyond my expectations.
I was extremely impressed by Dr. Elangovan. He is easily the best psychiatrist I have seen. He listened to me, wasn't judgemental, and took my concerns into consideration when making a treatment plan. He's also funny and has a great bedside manner. His receptionist was very nice and professional as well, and I was seen at my appointment time. He's worth the trip into Staten Island!
My adult son lives in Manhattan and was very unsuccessful finding a doctor that he felt comfortable with or one that cares. I suggested coming to Staten Island. He agreed and was pleasantly surprised by the time and care given by the doctor. I was also asked at some point to come into the office for my feedback. He left feeling hopeful and looking forward to a happy future.
I highly recommend Dr Natarajan Elangovan and will be making another appt. soon. He is a great doctor and a very caring person!
I found him to be profoundly interested in what I was saying. Very easy to talk to. Made me feel very comfortable.
Kind man--very easy to talk to
Very nice doctor. I will be back to see him in a month and will use him as my daughters doctor too.
1 very good doctor
I was pleasantly surprised. I was impressed that he seemed cautious about prescribing medication and took his time evaluating the situation. I thought the questions he asked were pertinent and that his demeanor was appropriate. This was only a first visit, but I went away feeling much better informed and less apprehensive about treatment options.
Patient and kind. Had a lot of helpful information.
Dr. Elangovan is fabulous! First psychiatrist I've seen that was personable, caring, and took the time to ask questions and listen. Sometimes the wait time is long which is frustrating when you've arrived on-time for your appointment.
he is most knowledgeable most personable and easy to talk to
Great personality easy to talk to , im 100% satisfied with his service.
Wonderful visit. Made me feel comfortable and was very understanding.
Dr. Elangovan and his receptionist were very courteous and professional. I am glad I switched to his office.
Initial consultation was outstanding. He was very considerate, and thoughtful.
Dr. Elangovan was very personable and sympathetic. He listened and asked appropriate questions and has a good sense of humor. After my last and very uncomfortable appointment with another psychiatrist, it was a relief to find Dr. Elangovan.
He was very professional, congenial and understood my siutation.
I am pleased with the doctor and how he treats my case, though it is kind of difficult to get a hold of him.
He was very diligent and patient with me especially because I was so apprehensive about seeing a psychiatrist. Highly recommend him to anyone seeking help.
Seemed genuinely concerned about my care and had an appropriate sense of humor. Nice man .
Listens to everything you have to say and works on a treatment catered to you.
Spoke with me for a long time and tried to really understand my condition.
Dr. Elangovan was wonderful, he was personable and i felt very comfortable. He was attentive and also gave feedback which i found very helpful. i would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Elangovan was a great listener with excellant feedback and knowledge, I was at fault for waiting to see the doctor; since I came late, he took another patient in.
First visit was not bad at all, as expected.
Thought he was a great doctor. He listened to my issues and provided a solution that I could live with. Very will worth the office visit and I will continue to use him as my doctor.
Very nice Dr. We felt very comfortable with him. My daughter likes him better than her other dr. He made adjustments on her meds so that she will feel better. Her other Dr had her on a very high dose which was causing her hands to shake. He was very caring.
I felt that Dr. Elangovan really listened to me and we developed a plan for my mental health together. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a psychiatrist who is caring and intelligent.
My visit with Dr. Elangovan was great. The wait wasn't long. Everyone was very friendly. I really like Dr. Elangovan. I would definatly recommend him.
Awesome 1st appointment !!!
Both he and receptionist were very courteous and helpful. Waiting room was pleasant. Office was easy to find.
Dr. E isnt even in my network but I would never go to anyone else. He listens and is empathetic, its a rare trait nowadays!
I highly recommend Dr. Elangovan. He was efficient yet thorough. I felt that he really listened to all of my concerns, but rather than focusing on them (as have other practitioners) he pointed me towards a solution right away.
Wonderful doctor. Really listened to all of my thoughts and concerns. I highly reccomend him!
Dr Elagovan was fantastic to talk to about what I am going through and was very understanding
Excellent doctor. Very kind and gentle. Listens to everything you have to say and gives great advice. He is honest and upfront and has his patient's best interest at heart.
Eye opening and informative
Dr. Elangovan is great! His front desk kept me informed and reminded at all times. When i went in the wait wasn't long at all and i was kept updated as to when it was my turn to go see him. Once i spoke with him he listened and explained very clearly. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Very professional and comfortable.
I am always skeptical about seeings psychiatrists because I feel that they rush you in and out without taking time to truly understand your symptoms. Dr. Elangovan had incredible bedside manner and really took time to understand my complicated situation. He was also very positive and uplifting and reassured me not to beat myself up - which was a plus. Incredibly knowledgeable and his secretary Trish is a gem to work with. Will repeat.
Great doctor! This was my first visit with a psychiatrist, and I was apprehensive. However, he was very kind and not at all "judge-y". Very comfortable speaking to him.
Very profession and smart
Very good doctor, he promptly had his appointments booked properly, as there was no wait time , soon as i walked in the other patient was walking out! Late appointments too! highly recommend!
It is hard to tell. It is a first visit with a psychiatrist. He is very warm and personable and I am a mess. I feel inadequate to pass judgement.
My visit with Dr. Elangovan went very smoothly. I had made my appointment through Zoc Doc and filled out the paper work on line to avoid having to fill out paper work on the day of my appointment. I arrived 1/2 early because I was not sure where his office was. Although I did have to fill out additional paper work (HIPPA privacy) paper work, and after that I was able to see the Dr. Elangovan. He was very nice, down to earth and spent time with me (unlike other doctors who rush you out of their office). Dr. Elangovan is very intelligent, and I loved that he took the time to explain everything to me including the medication they he prescribed for me. I am very happy that I found Dr. Elangovan and I highly recommend him because he genuinely cares and makes you feel very comfortable. His staff (secretary) is also very nice as well, which is a big plus. I look forward to my next appointment with him.
