He’s okay. Straight to the point but he won’t go out of his way for you. Other psychiatrists will give you coupons and ways to save on ur meds but he won’t acknowledge anything like that

Constant wait times of 20-30 mins after scheduled appointment time every time. Also, he didn't really help me much during my time with him as my psychiatrist in terms of my mental health. Oh well, on to the next one..

No empathy, warmth or ability to connect, and I felt like I was getting the 3rd degree as he questioned me. It was truly awful, so different from others’ reviews of this person. Maybe just an off day for him, but poor enough that I wont ever return.

I thought the Dr. Gharavi was very easy to talk to and really explored levels of my ailments I hadn't really thought of before. He was receptive to my concerns and really took his time to discuss options and treatments.

He listened very well and was totally focused on my well being. He also gave good professional advice and mentioned all ways of treating my illnesses. I like him and would definitely recommend him to someone in need of a professional doctor.

Dr. Read was the first doctor in my 15yrs of seeking treatment that actually listened to me, and took what I said and implemented it into my treatment. He listened attentively, and asked me questions to ensure he got to knowme. I highly recommend him. Especially for anyone who is not happy with how their current care is going. Or for anyone who is experiencing the need for a psychiatrist for the first time. He makes you feel comfortable, and will take the time to address everything and give you multiple options for your treatment.

He actually listens and wants your opinion on medicine that you feel worked for you in the past. Most doctors won't!

Dr. Gharavi was very knowledgeable about anxiety. He listened to what I had to say, and had a ton of suggestions that no one have ever mentioned before. He did not steer me clear of meds that have worked great in the past. Very good Dr.

Best psychiatry appointment I've had, and I've had many. The doctor took my complete psychiatric history in an objective way, so I was able to be honest about what hasn't helped. He was patient, caring, and non-judgmental. I appreciated hishonesty about the limitations of different meds and what we know about depression, which greatly increased my trust. He discussed various options with me at length and welcomed my input. I felt like other doctors were giving up on me, frustrated by how many treatments I've failed. I've rarely left a psychiatrist's office with hope. I've needed someone to believe I can get better.

Excellent! Felt very comfortable with him, he worked with me to continue my maintenance meds as I saw fit, made sure I was doing okay with all my Rxs and allowed me to discuss my concerns for any adjustments needed. Ifelt that he really allowed an open communication to help bridge any gaps! Super nice office also, staff was really helpful, bottled water and coffee machine was a nice touch, since I practically live off that!

I thought he's probably very good at what he does but I did not feel comfortable. He did not give me the feeling of really being invested in me as a patient. I think for me I need someone who seemsmore invested in me as a person and in finding solutions for me. Would not recommend very highly.
