  • I was able to get a appointment the same week I called. Her office was beautiful, relaxing and clean. She was friendly and direct. She took a full evaluation and recommended the best treatment plan for me. She also gave me recommendations regarding finding a new therapist. I thought she was excellent. 
    Added perk, she accepts Insurance which most psychiatrists do not and end up costing you a fortune!

  • Dr. Essaian is a very professional, yet kind and warm psychiatrist. She really listened when I was talking, and I believed she genuinely cared for my health and welfare. I was under the care of another psychiatrist at this group at MCLA for just 3-4 sessions before I realized he was not the doctor for me. I was so much happier when I switched to Dr. Essaian!

  • Dr. Maniktala received me promptly and as usual made me feel quite comfortable in her office. She has been my psychopharmacologist for a couple of years now.  We discussed my general moods since my last visit, as well as current important issues in my life.  Her style is relaxed, kindly, and supportive.  I also appreciate those times when she tells me her views flat out, not just leading me to her conclusions through gentle questioning; this directness is quite helpful.  She has deep understanding of the available medications, their side effects, and their interactions, and her prescriptions and her care have kept me alive and (comparatively) well.  I'd really recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for a psychiatrist.

  • So far, it is still work in progress. However, I will say that Fatemah has help me tremendously in a short period of time.I have better understanding of my current issues, and have become more productive. I look forward to seeing Fatemah, as shehas an unique way of coming up with new ideas for me. Fatemah, is very knowledgeable as a therapist. I highly recommendher. Fatemah really knows what I am up against, and at the same time, she has a way of giving me the empathy I need. I feel lucky that I found her as my therapist.

  • After my father suffered a stroke in 1996, he was able to return home and live on his own with assistance.  However, he had an underlying agitation and unhappiness that made his life miserable.  He was very, very cold all the time.  He would turn the thermostat up to 90 degrees, which made it difficult for the caregivers and me to function. 

    I took my father to several local doctors to try to find ways to help my father.  A local psychatrist (who claimed to be a geriatric psychaitrist) wanted to do talk therapy with him.  My father was a stubborn, 90 year old man with dementia, and the local shrink wanted hime to "talk out" his problems.  Please!!!  When that failed, the local shirnk suggested Xanax, which calmed my father for a little while but made him even more agitated in the end.

    I finally contacted Dr. Schneider's office.  In the past, he had provided invaluable tretment to my mother-in-law, but I had been reluctant to make the long drive from my father's home to Dr. Schneider's office.  However, I was desparate.

    The drive was definitely worth it.  Dr. Schneider met with us for about half an hour and then prescribed several drugs for my father.  He had me report to him via telephone the following week to describe the effects of the medications.

    The "effects" were astounding.  Within two days, my father's "internal thermostat" reset, and he reported being hot.  He was also calmer and far more alert.

    After the initial meeting and one follow-up, I was able to manage much of my father's care on the phone.  Dr. Schneider worked hard to midify the dosage to improve my father's quality of life.

    What Dr. Schneider did was nothing short of miraculous.  I will be forever grateful to him.

  • He is wonderful. He wants to solve the problems of his patients. I have to sometimes wait a long time in his office because he spends so much time with his patients. He is incredibly thorough and caring. He is an incredible doctor. I have never seen someone so committed and thorough in my life. He follows up very well.

  • Following the psychoeducational evaluation, Dr. Kretz was able to pinpoint our son's overall academic strengths and weaknesses. Dr. Kretz is a very insightful and caring child psychologist. He was able to explain our son's learning style in a manner that was quite understandable to someone without a background in pscyhology. In addition, he gave us a number of valuable strategies and suggestions to help our son overcome various educational challenges.

  • I am very impressed with the thoroughness and knowledge of Dr. K. A longtime friend had referred him, and my friend is correct. Dr. Kowell also works at UCLA in neurology and has referred me there for another test. I don't know yet how much everything will cost because I have insurance and have not yet seen all of the billing. I feel secure in recommending Dr. Kowell to others. He has other responsibilities; so he has to change your appointment once in a while (for good reason). Don't expect a slap dash, hurry up exam. He's thorough!! His referrals for tests were for off-site and right there on-site (performed himself).
