HEAR FROM OUR PATIENTS

Dr. Rabbani is one of the best psychiatrists that I have seen. I have been receiving treatments since my early childhood. He is by far my favorite. He takes the time to listen and make me feel understood. It isn’t the easiest thing to talk about the trauma that has occurred during my life. However, he has made me feel safe to vocalize the events. He explains how and why this events manifest into my mental health. I would refer him to anyone suffering with their mental state. Also, his staff is top notch. They always make me feel at ease. Thank you.

Dr. Whitt is not only beautiful, she is trustworthy, unbiased, and compassionate. She listens with her whole heart and she is realistic. Radical acceptance comes to mind when I think of Dr. Whitt - "accepting situations and circumstances even when you may disagree." Hard to do; however, necessary for peace. Dr. Whitt is the first therapist I have ever encountered and she will always be my #1 choice. I always look forward to our talks. She has been by far, a blessing in my life.

Dr. Rabbani has really helped me since I have been under his care. He is genuine in caring for his patients, and providing the right care for them. He listens to concerns and addresses them, accordingly. Additionally, he offers explanations for better understanding of what is being experienced. Several times I have forgotten to reschedule an appointment and he graciously takes the extra time to see me. There's not many people who would work as hard for their patients as he does. I am grateful for him and would not be where I am today without his care.

Dr. Rabbani is a wonderful doctor to see. He is very informative and he makes things clear to understand. He listens well and makes you feel heard and not judged. He always has great advise and supports you well, on your way to being a better you. I have been seeing him for about three years now and wouldn’t want to see anyone else.

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor with specialized training in diagnosing and treating emotional problems and mental illness including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, psychosis, ADHD, behavioral problems and substance abuse. Psychiatrists also threat individuals with self-destructive or violent impulses.

No. Psychiatrists evaluate and treat individuals with a wide range of difficulties. This is true for those who seek out treatment themselves and those who are referred by others.
