Dr. Vatsal Thakkar, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I believe there is no substitute for adequate face-to-face time in providing accurate and quality care. I have worked in research trials at NYU and Vanderbilt on depression/anxiety, ADHD, and other disorders so I take a systematic approach for the best results. Though I do take some therapy cases, most patients see an outside psychotherapist with whom I consult on a regular basis. Everyone I see gets a comprehensive evaluation with recommendations, whether they be for therapy, medications, lifestyle interventions, or further testing. Picking a new doctor is complicated--I’m happy to schedule a complimentary phone call prior to scheduling. You can email me securely at gateway.solsticenyc.com or through the number below. Note: Appointments made through ZocDoc MUST be confirmed by phone with me or my assistant. NOTE: I'm not a member of any insurance panels, though I have an assistant who can file for out-of-network benefits for you, after the appointment. Thank you! VGT
