Last two times I came in, he exchanged less than two sentences with me (once of which was by phone). If you just need a script, I guess he's fine. Can occasionally make same day appointments. I don't like changing providers, but I'm fed up with not even knowing if I'll see the doctor or just be handed a prescription refill document to sign.

Dr. Prayaga was very informative and efficient. He provided me with a lot of useful information, asked all the right questions, and lastly, his office was very efficient, which you don't always see in doctor's offices today! I highly recommend him.

After the office not beig able to find my appointment, i was then confused with another patient who seemingly had my same unusual firat and last name. Then was told i had an outrageous balance. I was then brushed off and to try again tomorrow. Once i drove 30 minutes home i get a call to come back to the office and that theymade a mistake. Lost me as a patient.

Friendly, forthright, and efficient! He even offered a couple of useful tips I'd never heard before (from at least 4 prior doctors). I switched insurance & needed a new doctor, and was able to find & book with Dr. Prayaga the same day! (New patients should be mindful--allow a few hours prior to the appointment for processing paperwork).

More concerned with prescribing medication than listening to what you're going through. Illegible prescription and long delays between correspondence led to waiting over a week for my prescription.

Like other reviews state, appointments for Dr. Prayaga are five minutes tops. I already knew what treatment plan I wanted to continue coming into the appointment. I'm not sure I could recommend him for someone who is new to psychiatry but if you are self-aware about what you need, have seen doctors in the past he's a great on-plan option.

This is a no-frills doctor. I love how efficient the entire consultation was. The wait time was no more than 10 minutes and he did not rush me when I wanted to discuss my concerns. He intently listened to my concerns, was compassionate, and addressed my questions. Would recommend to others.

Administrative staff extremely rude, specifically, Angela. She hung up on me multiple times while trying to make an appt. with Dr. Prayaga. The staff sit in a call center and need to be trained that they are customer service professionals providing service to patients, and ultimately the customers pay for their services at the end of the day.

The other reviews ring true. Dr. Prayaga is plenty nice but you'll be in and out of your session in 5 minutes. The reason you go to this doctor is to get the medication you need, not for any in-depth talk therapy. If you already have a medication plan from a previous doctor, Dr. Prayaga is definitely willing to accommodate and write you the script you need. The office is quite disorganized but he accepts insurance so it's worth it.

The doctor was right to the point and took care of me with a great treatment plan. He didn't judge or make me jump through hoops to get my prescription. All around a great and efficient experience. The only downside was that my insurance covered nothing and only offered me a slight discount on his per visit charge.

He offered an unwelcome and irrelevant assessment of my physical appearance. As a visibly out queer woman, I am upset to know that he assessed me based on how pleasing he found my appearance.
