About Dr. Ramanbhai Patel

I am a board certified psychiatrist with experience of over 30 years. I treat adults with depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar mood disorders, schizophrenia, ADHD, PTSD, OCD and adjustment disorders. I collaborate with patients’ psychotherapists and other doctors and caretakers. My goal is to minimize psychiatric symptoms with the least amount of medication so that patients continue to develop themselves to their fullest potential. I believe that each person is unique and comes with rich experience of life. What happens around a person does not identify him/her but how they deal with these situations are what makes the person. Psychiatrist helps the person to find the strength within. *Please contact the office before your appointment*

Amazing psychiatrist! Really friendly and understanding psychiatrist. Had no wait time at all. No unnecessary red tape or paperwork. He handled insurance and everything himself very quickly. Was very concerned and listened to my issues,with follow-up appointment easily scheduled soon after. He even gave me a mobile number which I could send a text to for any issues! My last psychiatry experience at another place was an absolute nightmare, didn't get to see the psychiatrist (only saw a PA) and they did not respond to over 20 phone calls! Unbelievable. I am very grateful to have switched to Dr. Ramanbhai Patel and will be coming here from now on!

The only positive thing I can say was that I was seen quickly. It was a little difficult to find the office because it was labeled as a chiropractor office and the actual office is in a house right next tothe address provided. I walked into the office the first thing he asks me is for my insurance card then we were sitting in silence, so I began to explain why I was there, Dr. Patel interrupted me mid-sentence and said: "I'll ask the questions." In the middle of our appointment, his phone rang he answered it and yelled at the person on the phone that he was with a patient. There was absolutely no bedside manner, he jumped right in and started asking personal questions as if though I was doing a transaction at the bank. There was cash lying around his desk. I would not recommend this psychiatrist.

No wait time. Not a professional setting at all. Just doors with no secretary. I just sat there in an empty room waiting for someone to greet me or see what door would open first. Very uncomfortable. Will look for new Doctor.
