Dr Yerram is very attentive! She is now my primary care. I think she genuinely cares ans takes time to listen to everything going on, and isn’t afraid to refer you elsewhere if things are too serious. Great bedside manner!
Dr. Durrani is exactly the type of passionate, caring, and understanding doctor I was searching for. He totally gets "it" and his manner and personality are perfect. As a kind of rough and tumble blue collar guy I was naturally hesitant and worried about the interaction but he allayed my fears quickly. I am so thankful to have Dr. Durrani in my life. He is a Godsend.
Was worried about switching to a new doctor by Doctor Verma was fantastic. Doctor Verma seems to be genuinely listening and asks all of the right questions. Was able to get diagnosed quickly and had my prescription sent to my local pharmacy right away. The staff and nurses were also extremely helpful.
Very nice and was really good at communicating what exactly he thought my symptoms were related to. I have some follow test to do but very pleased with my visit.
Dr. Noori's office is modern with a comfortable seating area, and friendly staff. The doctor was thorough, kind, and professional. Highly recommend.
Mary J. Rodman,
She’s really nice and supportive. I feel comfortable to talk about myself with her. It did make me feel better.
Very easy to talk to but more importantly he listened and was very helpful in figuring out what medication was correct for my diagnoses. Stsff was great waiting time was 5 minutes.
The actual time spent with the doctor was fine. However I am very tired of waiting for such a long time in the waiting room to see him. This has been about my 5th appointment with him in the last few months and I have waited at least an hour in the waiting room to see him. Usually I have my baby with me because I am a stay at home mom and the wait time isn't good for her either. Maybe next time if the wait is too long I will have to reschedule for a time that works best for him. I wouldn't recommend this doctor based on wait times in the waiting room and waiting for him to show up in the exam room. Even when I have one of the first appointments of the day I still have to wait about an hour to be seen.
Dr. Remeikis is easy to talk to and be completely honest with. This was my first appointment with her and I look forward to seeing the progress we will make together. The office is comfortable, she recommended other doctors for couples counceling and provides contact information for referrals. I am glad I chose her as my psychiatrist.
Best psychiatrist I’ve ever seen. Highly recommend!
DR. Durrani is kind, professional, empathetic and has his patients best interests at heart.

Anxiety is not uncommon in our daily lives. We often face anxiety before an important test or when there’s a problem at work. However, when anxiety reaches extreme proportions and starts interfering with daily functions, it is termed as an anxiety disorder. For most people with this disorder, the anxiety isn’t temporary. It often worsens with time, and patients experience symptoms such as fatigue, restlessness, difficulty concentrating, irritability, sleep problems or muscle tension. Anxiety can also take the form of panic disorder. Heart palpitations, trembling, sweating, shortness of breath and feeling out of control are some of the symptoms patients experience with panic disorders. Specific phobias can also trigger anxiety among patients.
Types of anxiety disorders
There are several kinds of anxiety disorders, which include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and phobia-related disorders.
Generalized anxiety disorder
If you display symptoms of excessive anxiety or worry for at least six months, to the point that it starts impacting your everyday social interactions, work and routine life, you could be suffering from a generalized anxiety disorder. Some of the symptoms of a generalized anxiety disorder include feeling restless, wound up, having muscle tension, feeling irritable or fatigued, having difficulty concentrating, and having sleep issues, such as difficulty falling asleep or restlessness.
If you’re experiencing recurring periods of intense fear that erupt and reach a peak within minutes, you may have a panic disorder and should seek medical attention. Usually, a panic attack can begin due to a trigger such as an object or a situation. Some of the common symptoms people experience during a panic attack include trembling, sweating, accelerated heartbeat and the feeling of being out of control. Patients often worry about their future attacks and, as a result, tend to avoid objects, places and behaviors that might trigger them.
The intense fear of a specific object or situation is referred to as a phobia. Although fear is normal, taking it to extreme proportions can be detrimental to your mental health. People with phobias may experience an irrational worry or take active steps to avoid certain objects or situations. A phobia could be a simple fear like the fear of flying, heights or specific animals, or it could be social anxiety disorder in which a person has a fear of being judged negatively socially. For example, “agoraphobia” is an intense fear of events and situations that can potentially cause a panic-like reaction and could end up disrupting a person's life.
Common questions and answers about anxiety
How do you distinguish between anxiety and an anxiety disorder?
While anxiety is a normal response of our body to alert us of any impending danger, anxiety disorder is a mental illness. Anxiety might show up from time to time, but it is mostly manageable. An anxiety disorder lasts for a longer duration and is often accompanied by symptoms that are severe in nature.
How is anxiety treated?
The treatment usually involves psychotherapy, medication or both. The therapy is designed specifically to counter the patient’s anxiety. Anti-anxiety medication can be prescribed for the disorder. Medication like benzodiazepines help relieve symptoms rapidly in patients. However, medication has its drawbacks, as the patient can build a tolerance to it over time. Antidepressants can also be used to treat anxiety disorders, but they can take time to show their effect. Nevertheless, any medication should only be prescribed by a physician based on your condition.
What are the various risk factors associated with anxiety?
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, both genetic and environmental factors could play a role in increasing the risk of developing an anxiety disorder. Some of these factors include shyness or behavioral inhibition in childhood, family history, health problems, such as thyroid or heart arrhythmia, and exposure to stress in early childhood or adulthood.
What should I expect from a doctor’s visit for anxiety?
The doctor might ask you to detail your symptoms. They might ask you about the duration of the issue. They will probably do a physical examination to understand whether a medical condition is responsible for the anxiety you are experiencing.
