Dr. Khalil Asayesh's Ratings
I’m reading a lot of negative comments about Dr.Asayesh, all I can say is – stick with him, you’ll be glad you did. When I first met Dr.Asayesh, I thought he was a pill pusher as well. He was blunt and right to the point and didn’t seem to want to listen to me. But after being under his service and care for a year and a half, I can genuinely say he’s one of the best psychiatrists that I’ve ever had. He’ll tell it to you straight because he knows what he’s talking about and he’s very firm and passionate about his decisions. I hope he doesn’t retire soon, because it’s so difficult to get a psychiatrist with his years of experience. Am on less medication now than when I first started to see him. He got me off of a drug I’d been taking for, for almost 19 years. The drug caused long term memory and concentration problems, affected thyroid functions, Dr. Asayesh finally got me to detox off this drug last year. The damage is done, but I can finally start taking care of my thyroid now, I am forever indebt to Dr. Asayesh. He’s rough around the edges but has a heart of gold. He truly cares about his patients; his passion is just misunderstood sometimes, it took me a year to realize this. He knows what he’s talking about. I have worked with psychiatrists for almost 20 years and I wish I had gotten underneath Dr.Asayesh’s care years ago. It is very hard to find a good doctor. He also noticed another drug that I’d been on for almost 13 years caused osteoporosis in the long term. I noticed my bones have been getting weaker in the past year, and Dr. Asayesh got me off that drug too! I’m on a new medication where my OCD and paranoid thoughts are a lot less. I feel leveled without feeling zoned out. I feel less like a drugged out zombie! I’m on vitamin supplements and calcium and seeing a chiropractor to strengthen my joints and bones again. I’m on a lot less medication since I’ve been seeing Dr. Asayesh a year and a half ago and I feel more leveled and alert. He and his secretary are an amazing team. Thoughtful and caring, his secretary always returns calls, is great at her job and is very professional.
Dr. Asayesh is very knowledgable with many years of experience. He is a psychiatrists. A psychiatist prescribes medication, which psychologists cannot do. So if you DON'T WANT MEDS, go see a psychologist!! I was diagnosed with major depression about 10 years ago and was suffering many years before that. I have been to see many Dr.s . My symptoms were reduced but nothing seemed to help me to function in my daily life. Dr, Asayesh found the right combination of meds that worked for me. Other Dr.s would just ask me to talk, I couldn,t always find the right words to discribe my issues. Dr.Asayesh asked specific questions which made it a lot easier for me to get my point across. If the meds weren't working, at my next appointment
he would ask more specific questions and decide if i needed more of the same meds or change the meds. This went on until the right meds were found to work for me. He even suggested different natural products that might help.
I consulted Dr. Asayesh for Anxiety symptoms. We had two half-an-hour sessions when I filled in some diagnostic forms. I was, ultimately, diagnosed with Hyperactivity (partial ADHD) on the basis of information provided in those forms. Prescribed with 'Concerta'. Taking it for a month now and feeling much better. Better focusing and lesser hyper-ness. Means it was not Anxiety. People of his age, position and social status usually become strict, straight-forward and to-the-point. They usually treat youngers as their own children/students. Don't be offended! I was expecting, before seeing the 'Psychiatrist', that there will be long sessions in a low light room, over a comfortable couch, where I’ll tell the Psychiatrist my history and then he’ll help me with hypnotism and I’ll be cured! Nothing happened like that and he prescribed me with medicine that I am taking regularly and doing good. Our expectations hurt!
I was referred to Dr. Khalil by my Ob/Gyn during my pregnancy. Having suffered from bouts of depression since my teens, my Ob/Gyn wanted to know how likely I was to suffer post-partum depression. Dr. Khalil talked to me for about 10 min and then recommended I start preventative treatment immediately and take anti-depression drugs right after birth. At the time, I couldn't believe I would suffer post-partum. I felt angry with the doctor for suggesting there was something wrong with me. I felt great during my pregnancy and hadn't needed anti-depression meds for over a year, so I refused treatment. That was a mistake. It turns out Dr. Khalil knew me better than I did. I have now been battling post-partum for over 2 years.
I took my mom to Dr. Asayesh who was of no help to her. He just perscribed drugs to her in 5 mins of talking to her but refused to give me a diagnosis on paper. She has since seen a REAL doctor who has diagnosed her with Dementia. Do yourself a favor. Avoid this doctor. He should be retired.
This doctor is probably the worst psychiatrist I have ever met. Not only does he not know how to diagnose any mental illnesses he's also very ignorant and set in his 1920's ways. All he knows is how to prescribe medication. He did not believe that I have depression, he caused me to have an anxiety attack by saying I was being crazy. Seriously a psychiatrist telling a depressed person there crazy is a little messed up dont you think. And yes his receptionist doesnt return your calls or ever pick up the phone. Its sad that someone like him holds such a high status in our society. Its people like him that give psychiatrist names such shrink and quack. I hate to say it but if you ever see this doctor RUN, for he only makes things worse.
