Sad. Alone. Confused. Anxious.
These are a few of the words that used to describe my outlook. While some days were better than others, I knew that I wasn’t living the life I wanted and needed help to calm the war my mind was waging.
Having visited a number of doctors over the years, I realized during my first appointment that Dr. Prashad is special. She is kind, compassionate, insightful, approachable and 100% dedicated to doing everything in her power to help her patients achieve their goals.
After trying traditional therapies and not realizing the results we had hoped for, Dr. Prashad suggested ketamine treatment. Over the course of the first six infusions, relief from the constant internal tension built steadily. Almost like putting on a new pair of glasses, my perspective and outlook suddenly came into focus and tasks that had once appeared too difficult or tiresome no longer seemed insurmountable.
Ketamine therapy is helping the best of me shine while quieting the thoughts and anxiety that can so often be self-defeating. It has, quite simply, been life changing.
Dr. Prashad practices medicine like it was meant to be practiced. Aside from having an impressive educational background, a professional approach and a thoughtful and caring demeanor, what sets her aside from other practitioners is her availability. Those of us who have been thorough a mental health crisis know that waiting two or three weeks for professional help can seem like an eternity. Not only have I found that same-week appointments are usually available but Dr. Prashad has made herself available to me which I find absolutely extraordinary in today’s medical industry. If you have struggled, like I have, to find a psychiatrist who can be there when you need them and leave you with a sense being well taken care of, do yourself a favor, make an appointment and see for yourself. Dr. Prashad is the absolute gold standard in psychiatric medicine.
