Staff was super nice. She was also very nice. The only problem was the wait time. Waited for 2 hours. Apartfrom that everything was great.

Visiting her for the first time was ok but not great. The office is a total wreck, though the personnel werenice enough. She was a bit strange but pleasant. However, when I called to refill the prescription she had prescribed me because I was on my last pill and could not wait until our next appointment for her to re-prescribe, I was very rudely spoken to on the phone by her assistant (interrupted and talked over). When I was finally transferred to speak with her, she very quickly told me to call my pharmacy -- when I pointed out that my pharmacy could not refill the prescription because she had given zero refills, she interrupted me and said again to call my pharmacy and then HUNG UP ON ME. I can't with this woman. I will not be seeing her again.

The actual doctor was great. The front desk staff less so. But if you can deal with them being disorganized and slightly rude for 30 mins or so then you'll have a good experience with the doctor.

The wait time was long. After she did a psychiatric assessment she mentioned that it is far for you to travel here. It's best that you see a psychiatrist closer to your home.,I don't mind traveling.She didn't give me time todecide after the visit she hands me a peace of paper for another clinic.it was very wrong for her to do that.

Dr. Nidhiry is attentive and helpful, took thorough notes, and helped me with the issue I was having in a proactive way. Furthermore, she has Saturday hours, which is clutch. That being said, the office was running over an hour behindfor appointments, it was crowded, the secretaries pretended they didn't see you if you had a question, and the atmosphere was very Soviet-bureaucratic-mayhem.

Office staff did try to be helpful. But the large office is obviously always running behind. It also appears to not to at all uptodate with medical records. There were paper charts piled on the floor within clear view of thefront desk. And the doctor gave me perscriptions in handwritten form which I had understood was not even accepted any longer under law. The doctor herself tried to be sympathetic, but overall had a scattershot approach to gathering social history. Her questions were usually framed with an assumptiong "Your children, they are doing well then?" for example. Overall a very unprofessional and near to unpleasant experience.

I told her my medication wasn’t working well ( Vyvanse) and that I was having a hard time focussing. A lot of that has to do with my insomnia, and before asking me any questions she screamed at me and accused me of being a drug addict.

The doctor became rude and angry when my son and I expressed to her that he had a bad reaction to the medicine she prescribed. She told me that the psychotropic meds do not cause a reaction and anger and thatmy child is already that way on his own (which is not even the case. My son just needs help sleeping) and that if I didn’t make my son take them for a few more months that I need to see someone else. This is the most unprofessional doctor I’ve ever seen.

i have never been treated so poorly by a medical professional. she never asked me why i was there and started writing prescriptions before she even knew what issues i am trying to address. she was rude, short, judgmental, made mefeel awful about myself, and said twice that she 'didnt know if (she) could help (me).' she did not listen to me. she looked down on me. she was very, very nasty and when you have patients that suffer with mood disorders and tough times, this makes them shut down. i explained all of this to her and she thanked me--i truly dont think she knew what she was doing wrong--but THAT is the mark of a bad doctor. i appreciate that she learned something but i shouldnt have to teach my doctor how to be a good doctor. when i called to cancel my follow up, i told the receptionist why i was cancelling and she didn;t care, didn't make note, didn't apologize. i will never, ever, EVER come back. i may also report her to my insurance company, it was that bad. avoid at all costs.

She was so professional and understanding. She prescribed me meds that are working wonders already and I couldn’t be more grateful. Also, the woman at the front desk, Laura was so helpful and kind. Not to mention, there’s a local pharmacyright across the street that was very quick as well. Highly recommended.

Dr, Nidhiry ticked all the boxes for me. She was kind warm and efficient in our visit, I walked out with what I needed and an appointment for next time, and while the wait was about 30 mins or so, the admin staff were receptive, helpful and warm.

Doctor insisted on a drug test right away which was very correct and professional. As i have had a history of manipulating psychiatrists, it was refreshing to not having been able to do so due to a drug test at thebeginning of the appointment and "iMed", which informs the doctor of my RX history and makes it difficult to "fabricate a diagnosis". Doctor gqve me qn anti histamine for anxiety rather than a benzo which i requested.

Terrible service and unacceptable practices. The waiting room was a disaster that was running 45 minutes late. The doctor saw me for only 15 minutes and despite this being our first session, wrote me 2 prescriptions with a troubling “wait &see approach” to side effects. I tore up the prescriptions and am looking elsewhere for a psychiatrist to help me with my anxiety.
