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.

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.

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.

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.
