Psychiatry reviews in Kettering

  • I saw Dr. Patel for over a year after my previous psychiatrist left the area. While Dr. Patel is certainly a competent psychiatrist, there are many mitigating factors that would prevent me from recommending her services.
    First off, it's terribly hard to get an appointment with her in a reasonable amount of time; I know this is the case w/ many psych. doctors, so I don't hold that against her too much. The office she shares with other practitioners is okay, but extremely cramped for the amount of traffic. This is made worse by the fact that my average waiting time (when I show up on time) is probably 45 minutes, which is unacceptable. Further, when dealing with her staff on the phone to handle prescription problems (for drugs and dosages I'd been on for years) on multiple occasions I was treated with what I can only describe a hostile attitude. It was anything but helpful. I finally decided to switch doctors after receiving no response to repeated requests for a refill of my years-long daily prescription.
    Dr. Patel herself was very knowledgeable about drugs and managing symptoms, but every appointment I've had was extremely short. I felt like drug management was all she was doing; most of them could have been phoned in. Maybe this would not be the case with an as-yet undiagnosed patient, but I don't know.

  • She is very good.  She spends time with the person and really picks up on details.  She takes as much time as she needs but they are shorter appts than for a psychologist.  She is a DO.  She knows her stuff and she knows kids.  She took extra time one time and did not charge. 

    She does not take insureance - you can fill out papers and send in.  She works with different counselors in town.  We go to a counselor - we mainly use her for the medications.

  • Dr. Hott prescribed meds for my husband and when we asked about side effects and duration of taking the meds, she blatantly lied to us. We asked about the long-term plan for these meds (because our plan was to use them for a short period of time during this work crisis) and her response was that most people need to be on a smal dose forever.  Because we had nowhere else to turn in a crisis situation, we continued to see her and eventually my husband decided to try titrating off the meds himself.  This didn't go well and he ended up in the hospital during Christmas.  During that time, he completely rid himself of the meds and we found another doctor.  Before even seeing this new doctor, we were asked to sign a blanket release form stating some patients are prescribed these kinds of medications and if one isn't careful, you can end up in the hospital with all of the symptoms my husband had!  This other doctor NEVER TOLD US THIS INFORMATION EVEN WHEN WE DIRECTLY ASKED HER! 
    Her office staff was friendly and we could tell they often felt trapped by the uncomfortable position in which she put them by calling out patients' personal medical informaiton in the waiting room. 
    This woman should not be treating patients.  She should seek treatment for herself.

  • The staff will help you with setting an appointment convenient to your needs. Go early enough to fill out the necessary paper work, take your insurance card if you have insurance. Amount of time needed will be determined by you and the doctor. He does not, however, rush you in and out like many doctors do! Good location, eash to reach from anywhere. Pleasant and clean atmosphere. People of all kind and all ages see Dr. Balster. I have seen one other psychiarist who was very good but retired. Thank God for Dr. Balster. My life has been full of tragedy, it seems endless at times. In this day and age, it is not easy for anyone to cope with all of the problems we face ALONE. Don't even try.

  • He is excellent in every sense of the word. He is professional and very down to earth as well. He makes you feel at ease and just has a great personality. He is extremely busy.
