I had a really great experience with Dr. Prayaga! Making an appointment was convenient and easy: you can schedule appointments online (whether you're a new or returning patient), he sees patients at three locations in the DC area, and I was able to get an appointment within just a few days of the time of scheduling. I saw Dr. P at the 14th Street location in DC. The office space wasn't the prettiest thing I've ever seen (I think this location is a satellite/non-permanent office), but it's centrally located and easily accessible by Metro/car/foot. The wait time was no problem: I was seen about five or ten minutes after my appointment time. His office has patients complete and submit paperwork and insurance information in advance of the appointment, so I didn't have to worry about any of that when I arrived. (One negative comment: The office had a problem verifying my insurance coverage and called me the morning before my appointment to tell me that I needed to figure it out with my insurer or I'd have to reschedule my appointment. It turns out the office was calling the wrong number, and they could have figured this out with marginal effort instead of passing the issue back to me. But I was able to get it resolved efficiently, so no harm.) Dr. Prayaga himself was great. I've never seen a psychiatrist before, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but he had a great "bedside" manner that put me at ease -- he's a really smart guy, but very down to earth. He put a lot of thought into proposing the best treatment plan for my circumstances. I had appended a note to my intake form that explained why I was seeking treatment and what I hoped to achieve during the appointment. It was about four pages long, so I didn't really expect him to read it, but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway. I was pleasantly surprised to find that he had read every word of it: he brought up some things I'd mentioned in the narrative an explained how those things factored into my treatment plan. He also carefully explained the reasons for the treatment plan and patiently answered all of my questions, so I felt like I was an informed participant. The appointment was efficient, but I didn't feel rushed. My appointment was just this afternoon, so I can't yet speak to the efficacy of the current plan, but Dr. P let me know that I should expect to notice some positive effects within 7 to 10 days and encouraged me to call or email him to discuss adjusting the treatment plan in advance of my next regular appointment if I don't notice adequate improvement at the end of that period. In any event, I'm glad to have taken steps toward feeling better, and I feel very confident that Dr. P will make sure I get the best treatment possible.
