Ratings for Dr. Roohi Alikhan
Dr. Alkhan was over 35 minutes late to my first any only appointment with her. I was her first patient of the day at 9:00 so it is not because appoints ran late - she was just really late. When she finally did arrive I was expecting some type of acknowledgement or apology for her tardiness , but she said nothing. Since this was my first time meeting with her I was expecting her to try to get to know me, my issues, etc. but like others mentioned she was just interested in writing me a prescription and moving on, asking what I wanted - i didn't know that's what I was hoping she could tell me. I thought we would run out of time since she was so late, but that was not the case, wrote a prescription and sent me on my way.
Dr. Alikhan is extremely shy and soft-spoken. She expresses an extremely low degree of confidence in her medication recommendations, constantly leaving it up to the patient. While I appreciate her soliciting my input, she is the MD and is far more qualified to choose the best medication based on my symptoms than I am. I saw Dr. Alikhan for over a year and she was still did not know me at all. She would repeatedly ask me the same questions that I had already given her the answers to multiple times before. She is a great doctor if you're looking for someone who is easily manipulated and can be convinced to give you whatever drugs you want. But if you want someone who truly cares about you, your history, and your concerns, I would look elsewhere. Her sessions are like drive-bys--get in, get a prescription, get out. I am so glad I finally found someone else who actually takes the time to thoroughly and accurately figure out the best medications for me.
Very soft-spoken, diminutive lady of Muslim bacground. Very caring demeanor and even smiles here and there. She is doing her job as best she can - she is relatively new in private psych. practice. I have found her to be helpful and open to suggestions as far as prescriptions are concerned.
Very inexperienced, not knowledgeable. Seemed just as bad as her patients - very shy, quiet, soft-spoken, almost hesistant. Did not do a very good job of establishing rapport or a supportive doctor-patient relationship. Was best at just continuing to prescribe meds. While she was very kind she was not helpful - a very mediocre doctor. Did not take the initiative in trying to remedy my issues.
