"Worst doctor ever!!! All he does is sit in his chair talk to you for 5 mins and send you in your way. Very rude and unprofessional. I had a serious issue going on and another dr needed" records from him. Well he never for back to my dr for a couple weeks after leaving numerous messages on his personal emergency patient cell phone and office phone. Then when he finally got ahold of him all dr
told him was he doesn't remember me and didn't even dig up the records that were being requested. This was only a year after I stopped going to him. Horrible he's just a dr who wants to make money and could care less if his patients live or die.

"He is very knowledgeable and actually cares about the patient, treating the root cause & not OVER-medicating or just dispensing Rx's like a pill factory as, sadly, TOO many" I've encountered from the standpoint of a patient and a patient's care giver...

"Do not ever go to this doctor! He is the worst doctor I have ever seen. When I walked in they made me take a surprise drug test? This caught me off guard because I went there on my" own accord and just needed my medications to be reviewed. My appointment was at 11:30 and he ran an hour late. The doctor sat and stared at his computer while asking me questions. . He asked me questions about my history and cut me off and got annoyed when I went into too much detail for him. He would ask me one general question and then immediately misdiagnose me and then accuse me of being in denial when I didn't agree with him. For example, he asked me if I would feel anxious about going to a gathering with a group of people that I have never met before. I answered yes and he immediately told me that I had anti-social disorder. He also diagnosed me with restless leg syndrome because sometimes when I wake up my bed sheets are at the bottom of my bed. Ridiculous! He did not listen to one thing that I said and seemed to have a personal agenda. After the uncomfortable question session, he asked me why I was there. I told him to have my current meds evaluated and get new prescriptions. He then informed me that anti-depressants do not work and that the ones that I have taken in the past did not work (they actually work and work well.) He then went on to tell me that he wanted to put me on mood stabilizers such as Lithium or Seroquel. I HAVE MILD DEPRESSION! These drugs are for people with severe medical problems. I have never even wanted to walk out of a doctor's office before, but this man was so out of touch and made me so uncomfortable that I chose to get up and leave immediately. He told me on my way out that I was un-educated and did not know what I was talking about. This man should not be practicing medicine and if you are even considering going to see him: don't. I don't know if this is a situation of mal-practice but I will be speaking with my referring physician about Dr
and advising not to ever refer any of his patients to him again.

Would not suggest provider for the following reasons:
1. Dr. Sanghadia made a diagnosis for an issue I was not seeking treatment for. Although it was not a controlled substance, he prescribed a medicaton that causes strong withdrawl symptoms. He insisted on frequent office visits every 14-60 days and would hold refills hostage to ensure frequent visits and payments. (I was a cash paying customer)
2. He was late to 100% of appointments
3. I cought 2 instances of overbilling
4. Acted in an unprofessional manner after i indicated i can no longer afford to see him. He left a rude message on my voicemail and in a childish act of vengefulness, he refused to provide a tapering off regemin from the non-controlled withdrawl inducing medicine. He forced me to go through a very uncomfortable and unsafe withdrawl because I could no longer afford office visits.
5. Communication needs improvement. Calls and refill requrests were frequently ignored.
6. Overall very unaccomodating and unprofessional.

Waited in hallway for 20 minutes. Spent 10 minutes maximum with the Dr. He charges for the appointment and for writing a script. Total cost, over $500.00. This man just opened his own practice and seems to me to be just padding his billing. I have used this Dr since 2006. I have chosen to seek another Dr. This man has turned greedy since opening his own practice.

The experience was terrible and I would not go back there even if I was psychotic and didn't know my name. They are there only for the money and are RUDE AND UNKIND to the patients. They do have a Patient Advocacy Department that really cares but their hands are basically tied by the administration. The nurses play favorites and love to gossip. They create more drama than any of the patients could ever do on their worst of days. DO NOT GO THERE FOR ANY REASON!!! You would be better off getting the advice of your local hairdresser and save yourself a life savings.

I see someone here for depression. At first they seemed to be fairly caring, and I was glad to find a provider that charges on a sliding scale. When I first started going here, I was unemployed. $25 per visit for someone with no income at all still seems fairly steep, but since they combine prescribing medication with actual talk therapy like in the old days of psychiatry, I thought it might be worth it, rather than having to have two separate providers for this. If you go here, you will likely see a resident, which means he or she is still supervised by a more experienced doctor. They may want to film you, which you can decline. That, I don't mind so much, since I declined it. When I found a job, though, they told me my price would go up to $45 or $50 each time, which, considering how little money I make, was too steep. So then they told me that as of a certain date, the residents would be covered by my insurance. Great, I was looking forward to my $15 copay. Well then they said, "Oh, sorry, it turns out that's for every resident but YOURS."

? Seems a bit fishy. Then they said the only way I could get the insurance to cover it was to participate in what they call "attending clinics" which means that after I see the resident for 45 minutes (You no longer get 50 minutes like in the old days), then I have to see his supervising doctor for five minutes. OK, fine, as long as it is affordable enough for me to get treatment. Well, so far, each time I have gone for a visit, it seems to take a MINIMUM of half an hour to round up the supervising doctor, sometimes longer. Before you know it, I have been there for over two hours, close to three, and I get in trouble at work for being late. Hardly seems worth the money. I also, being new at this job, get very little sick leave to use on these appointments, so I can't go as often as I need. Therefore, communication is even MORE important. Well, I don't know what's going on over there, but they started taking weeks to call back, even to make appointments. I called and got a new girl on the phone, she said she couldn't schedule these attending clinic appointments, and the regular girl was in training, and she'd leave her a message to call me when she came back. I never heard back from them. I had a bad reaction to the last medication they tried me on, so I was frantically trying to get in touch with them to substitute something else. No response for a long time, then I get a prescription called in for a two week supply of something. I finally saw the resident a week and a half ago, as of today, and he was supposed to send a prescription to my pharmacy. They never received it. I even checked with my old pharmacy--nothing. I have called and called until I'm blue in the face. I get no response. The receptionist claims she is giving him the messages. The exchange claims the clinic is open 8-430, but no one answers before 9 am. Rarely does anyone answer between 11 and 2. They close promptly at 430. Seems like they are only operational about 4 hours a day. The supervising doctor never showed up to the last appointment. OK, maybe she got sick, things happen, I could understand. But then the resident ended my appointment just before half an hour had elapsed. He is frequently late to call me in. Ok, maybe he had to take longer with another patient, I could appreciate that if there were no other issues. And on top of everything else, they seem to pick and choose what they want to treat. I asked for help with a particular issue (hoarding). I even researched it and found a patient workbook and a doctor's guide, and they basically told me that they weren't interested in helping me overcome the problem unless I was able to come once a week and pay out of pocket. They said "Maybe the psychology school would be able to help me." I really don't understand this. At least they could have offered some alternative, some suggestion of their own. But they won't even talk to me about it. I have been out of medication for days now, and this is not the first time this has happened. Doctors like to claim it's the patients who bear all the responsibility for not complying with treatment, but I can tell you, that in the case of this clinic, they are a huge part of the problem. At best, it is inconvenient and immature for them to be acting in this fashion, at worst, it is EXTREMELY irresponsible and unprofessional, one could even say NEGLIGENT. If you are going to be a doctor and claim to treat patients, some of whom this is a life-threatening problem for (I mean psychiatric issues), then you cannot be playing games with them like this. These people DEFINITELY do not take their oath seriously. If they had decided they didn't want to treat me anymore, for whatever reason, why not just tell me? If they are purposely trying to dissuade me from going there, they have picked a rather roundabout way to do it. I admit, I am not always shy about speaking my mind during sessions, but I am actually much more patient and forbearing than lots of patients I've seen, and I am not violent or irrational, so I really don't know what their problem is. I was with my last doctor for around 7 years, until he relocated to southern California. As soon as I am able, I am going to have to find someone else, because this is completely unworkable.

Dr.
Kapolei Psychiatrists Provider Name Locked
is a gifted doctor who has been able to help me more than any other psychiatrist I have ever been to. I trust him and would recommend him. He is so skilled that I rather drive 40 minutes to see him rather than anyone in my area. I have been misdiagnosed by others. In a field where observation and sound judgment is essential, you want someone who will evaluate your case carefully.

She's great. It's a small office with only two docs and one receptionist. You always speak to the same person when scheduling. The wait is short. Dr.
