Qualifications and Experience
I am a graduate of Harvard Medical School and the Johns Hopkins Psychiatry residency program, and board-certified in psychiatry. I have over fifteen years combined experience in psychiatry and medicine, and work with adults of all ages and adolescents 16 and older. I treat depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, ADHD, eating disorders, chronic pain, substance abuse, and psychotic disorders.
I also treat psychiatric issues related to medical conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, post-stroke, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's dementia, epilepsy, endocrine and autoimmune disorders, and cancer. I work with individuals, couples, and families to address their relationship or career issues.
My practice style: I tailor the treatment to each person’s unique situation. This may involve psychotherapy, medication management, group therapy, or a combination. I encourage an assertive and collaborative treatment style; this leads to faster recovery, and the strength and resilience to overcome life's challenges.
I do not participate in insurance panels; however, my services are reimbursable by most health plans that offer out-of-network coverage. I will assist with maximizing reimbursements but patients are responsible for confirming their coverage, and for filing insurance claims. This policy protects the nature and privacy of your treatment from third parties.
Verified Patient Reviews
WOW, great Dr. !! I unloaded 7 years of.... stuff. It was great to have someone listen, ask questions - without discounting where I was coming from. Can't wait to get back to my next appointment.
Dr.Saidi is a rare gem among colorless stones that make up this profession. I had my first visit with him today and knew within minutes he was the real deal. This is a man whose qualifications alone were enough to get me on the LIRR for an hour to meet him. He didn't disappoint. For the first time in years I feel confident I can beat my anxiety and ADD and confident in the doctor who will help me do it. Those writing negative reviews need to realize this is a Harvard grad and the real deal. If you're looking for honest help, this is the guy you want. But if you're looking for someone who will "take your order", I suggest you try McDonalds. You won't find that here.
Dr. Saidi has really been a big help in improving my anxiety. He makes me feel very comfortable at all my appointments and really listens to what I have to say. I am very fortunate that I was able to find Dr. Saidi and my health has greatly improved under his care.
First appointment, but highly recommended already. I feel much better about my future being in his hands.
No follow-up at all after several medications had no effect. Seems like he simply lost interest after a couple of office visits while he did not fix any issue. Very disappointing given the excellent reviews I read on this site.
I thought that Dr. Saidi was so wonderful and genuine. Dr. Saidi is without a doubt " the real deal ". He is kind, compassionate, with a sense of humor as well. At the same time serious, driven to get your loved one better. Thank you Dr. Saidi !
Willing to work with me! Gave me hope.
He is a great mentor. Honest, cut to the chase and always available when you need comfort.
Put me at ease I knew I was in good hands
Not supportive of relationships, likes to suggest quick fixes that undercut long term stability
I liked him very much. Warm, compassionate physician who seems committed to taking the necessary time to develop an effective treatment plan.
