We took our autistic son to see Dr. Niru for a psychiatric evaluation. She was kind, pleasant and put my family at ease. She listened to our troubles and was able to offer what i thought was very topical insight intoour son's behavioral issues. We left feeling that we had made a good choice in seeing Dr Niru and that it was the first step towards a positive, theraputic relationship.

Dr Natarajan is as cold as the other reviewers say. And she will ask you a question and totally interrupt you. On top of that, it would take paying for three visits and separate testing before a diagnosis anything so Ichose another doctor who could do it in one. They also made me take a drug test on my first visit. Which I recently found out is charged separately from the appointment with no warning and it will cost me more than my rent. So no I don't recommend this doctor.

I basically paid to sit in her office and have her ask me "what medication would you like me to prescribe you?" I didn't feel like I was really heard or listened to, but instead was just passed through the conveyor belt.

She seemed very bored and then gave me a prescription for the most expensive antidepressant with no generic version and my insurance would not cover it. It is very obvious that this practice is about making money they want you tocome in for an appointment for just about everything, refills, a doctor's note, etc.

She doesn't listen. She keeps interrupting while you are talking and makes assumptions that she would learn are false if she just listened. She also, like many others, pushes drugs on you. I was very disappointed.

Had a bad experience. I felt scammed at times having to come back so many times for a refill of the same medication, so my medical expenses skyrocketed this year. Also, she will forget to send a prescription refill to yourpharmacy and her staff will require you to come in to request another refill. So I went on for a while without meds waiting on a refill that was never filled and then told to come in again to request the refill after calling the pharmacy and then her office. Scam...I've wasted time, money, and energy.

Her demeanor was a little stoic, but her overall care is good. She works out of a confusing office complex, so it's hard to find your way there. Overall, she gets the job done.

Eh! Wasn't expecting a care bear , but she could TRY to be more lively. She likes to interrupt your sentence, which can be annoying. However, towards the end of the session I saw a more personable caring side to her.I was able to get my meds and will most likely try her again.

The doctor's visit was uncomfortable. There wasn't anything warm and inviting about the visit, at all. The office smelled like mildew. I called back later needing advice, and when she called back, she seemed annoyed, but also I couldn't understandanything she said, so I had to ask her to repeat herself. She has an accent, but that isn't why I couldn't understand her. I couldn't understand her because her speech was very low and monotone. If I were the doctor, I'd give her a prescription for depression. She seemed very depressed.

Not at all what I expected from my first visit. I went in to speak with her about trouble with concentration and focus and left with a new prescription for an antidepressant - even though I told her that I washappy with what I was on. She gave me a card to schedule an ADHD evaluation, but it looks like it will still be several more weeks before I might see some relief for the symptoms that I was referred to her to treat! I left feeling...confused.

This doctor was very curt and off putting. She was disengaged and unfriendly- Totally unexpected. She did not seem to be genuinely interested in what I had to say. I was very disappointed with this doctor - very weird experience.

I saw Dr. Natarajan recently because my previous psychiatrist moved to another practice too far away. I rarely leave negative reviews but I'm hoping to save others time, especially because finding the right psychiatrist can be an emotionallydraining endeavor. If you're looking for an empathetic and compassionate psychiatrist, who overtly cares about your well being, I would not recommend Dr. Natarajan. She is very apathetic, and collects just enough information about your mental and emotional background to prescribe something. She is 100% all business, which unfortunately did not work for me at all.

She didn't seem too interested with the issues I was addressing to her, she did prescribe me some medication that did help with my problem. However she failed to correctly address the side effects of this drug and now I'm in limbo dealing with them.
